health - The Second Half Begins at 50 - Your Longevity Handbook
All of the recent medical research on aging points to the fact that the human animal, you and me included, has the potential to live up to 120 years of age. That means 120 active, happy and productive years, not years in a rocking chair, wheel chair or nursing home. That being the case, THE SECOND HALF of our lives does indeed BEGIN AT 60. However, since most of us have spent the first part of our lives mistreating our God given equipment, this human body of ours; so we may not all make it to 120. But the good news is that most of us should be able to make it to 100 and well over. This book is dedicated at giving us the best possible chance at reaching as near as possible to our true life potential.
Let's re-emphasize, we are talking about healthy, happy, active and productive years full of the things we enjoy doing.
How often have you heard the question, "If you had it to do over again, what would you change?" Well, if you are coming up on 50, theoretically, you do have it all to do over!
