For centuries, adventurers and scientists have believed that not only could we delay death but that "practical immortality" was within our reach. Today, many well-respected researchers would be inclined to agree. In a book that is not about anti-aging, but about functional aging--extending your healthy, active life--Dr. Sanjay Gupta blends together compelling stories of the most up-to-date scientific breakthroughs from around the world, with cutting-edge research and advice on achieving practical immortality in this lifetime. Gupta's advice is often counterintuitive: longevity is not about eating well, but about eating less; nutritional supplements are a waste of your money; eating chocolate and drinking coffee can make you healthier. CHASING LIFE tells the stories behind the breakthroughs while also revealing the practical steps readers can take to help extend youth and life far longer than ever thought possible.… (mais)

A great read by Dr. Gupta, who is the chief medical correspondant for CNN. He relates cultural aspects of countries around the world that contribute to longevity of life. The secret to living longer is maintining a healthy weight, get cancer screenings, exersize, get 5-7 servings of fruits and veggies a day ahd reduce stress. At the end he had a chapter or two about medical advances that will allow a person in the future to "grow a new kidney" if they needed one as well as cryogenics to freeze a dead person until science has the ability to heal themselves. A very good read and inspires me to live a more healthy life. ( )

I attended his lecture sponsored by the Georgia Center for the Book in DeKalb County....and the effect of reading and hearling led me to make some changes....eating vegs and fruits of DIFFERENT COLORS, taking care of your teeth and feet if elderly...which I am, as was much of the audience...swallowing fish capsules..bought some right away. Nothing especially new, but I feel like the book is personal coach since I saw him, and can see him often on CNN.
