Author Bob Murphy offers many startling propositions in his revolutionary new book, such as: The basic molecules necessary for life to begin on Earth came from somewhere other than this planet; and, the main cause of chronic disease related to aging is the inability of human cells to efficiently deal with oxygen. 
The basic premise of this revolutionary new book is that the original animal cells evolved in an atmosphere largely deficient in oxygen and thus, our ability to deal with this very reactive element is flawed.
In order to survive in an atmosphere that gradually acquired more and more oxygen, our human ancestral cells enlisted the help of the mitochrondion, which to this day, live within our cells.
However, in the process of metabolizing oxygen the mitochrondion are easily damaged.
This damage, known as oxidant stress, (along with atherosclerosis) can lead to depression of cellular function and even cellular death, which in turn can lead to degenerative disease.
Written for the Baby Boomers, because of that generation's characterization as a youth culture, but also for anyone with an interest in the problems associated with aging, Baby Boomers' Guide to Healthy Aging explains the principal factors leading to the development of degenerative diseases such as heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer, and dementia.
The book encourages the reader to take preventative lifestyle and dietary measures and offers practical suggestions on how to maintain good health, as one gets older.
Baby Boomers' Guide to Healthy Aging is supported by articles from approximately 5,000 scientific journals.
This interesting and important health book is a must for the average reader, the clinician, and the scientist alike.
Bob Murphy is a physiologist and psychologist.
He lives with his family in Sydney, Australia, where he is currently writing a second book that explores the spiritual and psychological aspects of good health and well-being.

  •     I could not put this book down.I am a dedicated reader of health booksbecause I like to be as well as I canpossibly be.The problem, I find, with books in genre,is twofold. Either they make claims withoutan evidentiary base, or they do not explainhow it all works. This book is different inboth respects.Why do we feel lacking in energy as we growolder? It is explained here! What can we doabout that? It is explained here! What dietshould we be on to avoid heart disease, or,cervical cancer, or breast cancer, or dementia?It is all explained here.This book explains in a way I have never seenbefore, from an evolutionary point of view, whyit is that oxygen and its relatives are so dangerous,and how it is that the can contribute to the diseasesmost of us worry about in aging.I can not recommend this book highly enough.It is all the health book you are ever going toneed if you are a normally aging person...
