Description

Eat Well, Age Better shows how you can recognize your nutritional shortfalls – deficits that will increase your risk of the degenerative diseases of age, including diabetes, osteoporosis, dementia, macular degeneration, heart disease, and stroke.
Backed by the latest research, Eat Well, Age Better describes in straightforward language how to be your own nutritionist. By taking control of your diet now, and understanding how to optimize it with selected vitamins and other supplements, you can increase energy, strengthen your immune system, maintain a healthy brain, and embark upon your retirement years with vigour and vitality.

Editorial Reviews

[a] small but information packed and extremely useful book...a wealth of practical information

— Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine

Eat Well, Age Better should adorn the bookshelf of every clinician's office as well as home libraries

— Canadian Medical Association Journal

In Eat Well, Age Better Burford-Mason pulls together, or rather, 'distills,' many years of personal practice and research into an easy-to-understand guidebook for those curious about where they rank on the spectrum between life expectancy and healthy life expectancy.

— alive magazine

In an overfed but undernourished society, this book is a powerful and much-needed reminder that we are, indeed, what we eat.
