Do we really need to give up the chocolate, coffee, and alcohol we so enjoy? After we have cut out all the added sugar, starch, and fat, what will we have left to eat? Should we go vegetarian or vegan? If you want to know the answers to these questions and more, this one-stop checklist is a must-read. With a trove of intriguing, entertaining, and funny facts about life, death, and everything in between, The Longevity List might just see you living to a hundred and beyond.
“The Longevity List makes the achievement of a long and healthy life look like something we can actually do.”
