The primary message of my book is that with a proactive attitude, we can all improve our lives, This is not a new concept, to be sure, but sometimes we need a little help in knowing exactly what to do. My book offers tips and advice, culled from my own experience with the aging process, as well as from exhaustive research, which will help you come to terms with your uneasiness about, or even fear of, what is to come as your body ages. I offer practical advice on what you can do now to improve the quality of your later life.
As men age, one of their primary concerns is their prostate. An enlarged prostate, known medically as benign prostate hyperplasia, can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms, including incontinence, painful urination, and an increased risk of urinary tract infections. The National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Clearinghouse has reported that over half of all men between the ages of sixty and seventy years of age suffer from this condition. Saw palmetto, a plant extract, is useful in improving these symptoms. Saw palmetto is available over the counter, with no side effects other than the occasional upset stomach. Small price to pay for relief.

And lowering my carb intake leads to a lower chance of my developing type 2 diabetes.
