Two thousand years ago, the average life expectancy from birth to death of a Roman citizen, an individual better off than most people at that time, was about 22 years (wars, infectious diseases, trauma, etc.). This progressively increased to about 47 years in the U.S. and most European countries by 1900. Today, the average life expectancy in the U.S. is 78 years (women about five years more than men). However, unless the obesity pandemic is reversed and lifestyles improved, the average life expectancy will likely decrease significantly. conversely, if our lifestyles improve, the average life expectancy could reach 85 or more years.
Growing older does not necessarily mean growing sicker. Thus, “don’t just add years to your life, add life to your years” (Hans Selve). Indeed, of the 15 major causes of death in the U.S., 65-70% are lifestyle-related. In this book, the following documented topics that are associated with diseases and mortality are discussed in detail: theories of aging; diseases and mortality associated with obesity, physical inactivity and poor nutrition; psychological stress (anxiety, depression); addiction (alcohol, tobacco, drugs); violence (suicide, homicide); food-borne and infectious diseases (viral, bacterial, parasitic); and various other conditions (air pollution, asbestosis, trace metals).

Moving into care is a significant life event for older people and their families and often occurs at a time when other life stresses such as deaths of loved ones and health complications are paramount. This book directly addresses the psychological impact that move can have, and offers tips for making the transition as smooth as possible.
Based on material from interviews with a wide sample of people who had recently moved into care and a review of existing literature about the process, the guide follows the whole journey from considering a move into care, making the move and settling in, offering advice on each step of the way.
Case stories from people who have just made the transition help make this an approachable and accessible read for those about to move into care and a helpful tool for families and staff who will be assisting them.

Bernie Siegel broke new ground with his monumental book Love, Medicine, and Miracles , in which he explored the powerful role the mind can play in fighting illness. Sharing stories of seriously ill patients who survived against the odds and those who seemed to give in to their own deaths, the book inspired countless readers to consider the possibilities of thinking themselves well. Siegel believed––and still does––that the power to heal comes from the human mind through will, determination, and love.

From John Gray, author of the phenomenal multi-million copy bestseller Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, comes the definitive book for men and women seeking lasting love in the face of modern pressures.
Why Mars and Venus Collide is the most important relationships manual since Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus redefined the boundaries of male and female relationships.
Men and women are different – we all know that. But if our genes have stood still then social changes have not. Overworked, stressed-out and time-poor, we can barely keep up with the frenzied pace of our lives – and our relationships are breaking down as a result.
In Why Mars and Venus Collide, John Gray, the best-selling relationships author of all time, shows how everyone can strengthen their relationships and make them last.
• Why couples fight – the physiological reasons why females and males behave differently under stress,
• How to stop fighting,
• How to seek support – and find it,
• How to lower your stress levels in everyday life,
• How to communicate equably and amicably, even when you’re raging inside.
Now repackaged to relate to a new generation of readers, Why Mars And Venus Collide proves why John Gray is known as the greatest living authority on how men and women relate.
