“Heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s are three killers that only appear to be age related”, says Dr Paul Clayton, who has spent over 35 years researching health and nutrition.
“Yes, they strike more often as people get older, but that’s not so much due to the passing of the years as it is to the accumulation of more and more damage to DNA and body tissues.”
“Prevent or slow that damage and you hugely increase your chance of staying healthy and disease free.”
His book, Health Defence, draws lessons from world-wide research on the societies and individuals who stay fit and healthy irrespective of age. It’s a blueprint for healthy living.
