- Michael F. Roizen, MD
Aging is a process that you can control. Research has demonstrated that lifestyle choices and behavior have a far greater impact on longevity and health than heredity. There are literally hundreds of steps you can take that will enable you to live your days to the fullest until the day you die.
Goals and Objectives:
• Improve your understanding of anatomy and physiology, and your ability to control whether your
individual genes are turned on or off;
• Describe the relationship between biological age and chronological age;
• Define the scientific principles of aging; and
• Describe how to help yourself stay healthy and youthful.
