Dr. Rick's Guide to a Long Healthy Life by Richard Selvaggi
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book enables the reader to review the twelve most important health habits that extend life, and identifies personal habits that need to be changed. Step-by-step methods for making changes in these health habits are provided. Motivation and encouragement to develop good habits and change established habits in young and older persons are found in every chapter. Additional resources, organizations, and references are cited to allow further reading and investigation by the reader. This longevity guide prioritizes the most important health habits that extend life based upon calculated deaths prevented each year by each health habit. These calculations come from evidence-based medicine studies from the American Cancer Society, the Centers for Disease Control, the "New England Journal of Medicine", the "British Medical Journal", the "European Heart Journal" and many other important publications. The sometimes surprising results challenge some of today's commonly held beliefs.
