This landmark study--which Dr. Andrew Weil calls "a
remarkable achievement with surprising conclusions"--upends
the advice we have been told about how to live to a healthy
We have been told that the key to longevity involves
obsessing over what we eat, how much we stress, and how fast
we run. Based on the most extensive study of longevity ever
conducted, The Longevity Project exposes what really impacts
our lifespan-including friends, family, personality, and work.
Gathering new information and using modern statistics to
study participants across eight decades, Dr. Howard Friedman
and Dr. Leslie Martin bust myths about achieving health and
long life. For example, people do not die from working long
hours at a challenging job- many who worked the hardest
lived the longest. Getting and staying married is not the
magic ticket to long life, especially if you're a woman. And
it's not the happy-go-lucky ones who thrive-it's the prudent
and persistent who flourish through the years.
With questionnaires that help you determine where you are
heading on the longevity spectrum and advice about how to
stay healthy, this book changes the conversation about
living a long, healthy life.
