BeschreibungThe basic premise of this revolutionary new book is that the original animal cells evolved in an atmosphere largely deficient in oxygen and thus, our ability to deal with this very reactive element is flawed. In order to survive in an atmosphere that gradually acquired more and more oxygen, our human ancestral cells enlisted the help of the mitochrondion, which to this day live within our cells. However, in the process of metabolizing oxygen the mitochrondion are easily damaged. This damage, known as oxidant stress, (along with atherosclerosis) can lead to depression of cellular function and even cellular death, which in turn can lead to degenerative disease.Written for "Baby Boomers, " because of that generation's characterization as a "youth culture, " but also for anyone with an interest in the problems associated with aging, Baby Boomers' Guide to Healthy Aging explains the principal factors leading to the development of degenerative diseases such as heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer, and dementia. The book encourages the reader to take preventative lifestyle and dietary measures and offers practical suggestions on how to maintain good health, as one gets older.
