Secrets Of Longevity With Dr. Joseph Maroon

Thank You Gifts

In this, his first public television pledge special, Dr. Joseph Maroon, neurosurgeon and best-selling author, explains how to unlock the power of our genes to enable a long healthy life. "It's not the number of years in your life that count, but the amount of life in your years," Dr. Maroon says. "In this program I'm going to tell you how to put more life - and quality - into your years." He also asserts "your genes are not your fate!" Dr. Maroon is an internationally-recognized professor of neurosurgery, author of "The Longevity Factor," team neurosurgeon to the Pittsburgh Steelers, seven time Ironman triathlete, member of the National Fitness Hall of Fame, and senior vice president of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. Secrets of Longevity shows how the new science of epigenetics applies to each of us and explores in detail the four pillars that determine our longevity: Nutrition & Supplements; Exercise; Avoiding Environmental Toxins; and Managing Stress. With cutting-edge science and warm personal anecdotes Dr. Maroon provides a road map to the long healthy life that he says "is a gift within your reach."
