Decline is not inevitable but the older we get, the greater the need for positive action if we’re to stay fit and well.

Sir Muir explains the how as well as the why of this and as such this book deserves to be essential reading. The message is that prevention is as relevant at 70 as at 20.

We now know we can postpone many problems we previously assumed were due to ageing but which research now proves to be due to loss of fitness, preventable disease and loss of morale. “Your health in older age can be improved and this book gives you the recipe for good health in your 70s, and better health in the decades to follow,” says Professor Dame Sally Davies, chief medical officer for England.

Sir Muir Gray, one of Britain’s most senior medical figures, pioneered breast and cervical cancer screening, and was knighted for his work in foetal, maternal and child screening programmes.
