Ten reasons (some serious or part serious) not to read and adapt some of the healthy habits recommended in this longevity and body, mind, spirit book:

  • You believe departure time on Earth is not in your control.
  • You do not believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of the cure.
  • You know all the preventative measures and natural methods already, but have not the will power or time to implement them.
  • You’re here for a good time and not a long time─too busy having fun.
  • An extra year or even an extra decade of quality living is not worth the book price. You would rather buy a carton of cigarettes or two bottles of wine.
  • You do not believe an extra year on Earth with your loved ones is priceless.
  • You prefer a more complex longevity book written by a doctor from the DNA point of view, or prefer a “dummy” book.
  • Exercise is beneficial but you cannot spare even 10 to 20 minutes per day.
  • Spirit training would be good but you believe in liquid spirits. You’re not interested in developing spirituality (helping others or giving back to the world).
  • And finally you believe the author’s “money-back-guarantee if you do not reach 100” may be a fraud.

But seriously ─ we should all be concentrating on quality of life, which automatically leads to extra-life years. How much time and effort would YOU spend to reduce, delay or even avoid some of the following common problems?

  • Alzheimer’s disease (avoid or delay)
  • Loss of balance leading to a broken hip and a dead end in the hospital (avoid).
  • High blood pressure and blocked arteries leading to heart and stroke (reduce, or avoid).
  • Many varieties of cancer (avoid).
  • Loss of endurance, energy, strength, flexibility and balance that occurs every year (reduce).
  • Shrinkage of height by several inches (reduce, or avoid).

Just a few minutes a day of exercise, the right diet, and avoiding some bad heath habits─ will lower your “real” functional age and fight these and other problems. There is no greater gift than the gift of life. Take control.
