How do you separate myths from facts when researching old age? One way is to find a group of people with some consistency in their lives. Aging with Grace is about research commonly called the Nuns Study, where a group of nuns are studied during their later years and they donate their brain for research after their death. The initial research is described in the book with many fascinating tales about the various nuns.
The book is from 2002 and reveals a lot of tantalising relationships between lifestyle and old age. Hopefully there will be an update in 2012 with further results from the research.
This book makes a great match with Life Is So Good because Life Is So Good shows you how aging happily and healthily can be easy, neither expensive or complicated.
