A landmark study of aging and its impact draws on cutting-edge research into the lives of hundreds of Catholic sisters to discuss the role of heredity in the aging process, how lifestyle influences chances for a vital old age, which foods defend the brain against aging, the impact of faith and community, and more. Reprint.
Time magazine hails this "moving, intensely personal account" of how a group of aging nuns and a dedicated scientist have joined forces to discover the secrets of a long and productive life.
Extraordinary media attention -- including the cover of Time magazine, major features in The New York Times and USA Today, plus "The Today Show" and "NBC Nightly News" -- heralded the hardcover publication of this landmark book by one of the world's leading experts on Alzheimer's disease. Dr. David Snowdon has made headlines internationally with his research findings. But perhaps even more compelling is the human story of the hundreds of Catholic sisters, ranging in age from seventy-four to one hundred and six, who gave the Nun Study its name by agreeing to donate their brains upon death.
Taking us from the laboratory to the convent, "Aging with Grace" is totally accessible and filled with intriguing portraits of these remarkable women. It also reveals the results of their extraordinary gift: newly discovered links between heredity, diet, lifestyle, early education, and Alzheimer's, plus practical steps we can all take to ensure a vibrant old age.
