The body is the most fascinating machine ever created, and nobody talks about it in ways that are as illuminating and compelling as Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz. Most people think of the aging of our bodies the same way we think of the aging of our cars: the older we get, the more inevitable it is that we're going to break down. Most of us believe that at age 40 or so, we begin the slow and steady decline of our minds, our eyes, our ears, our joints, our arteries, our libido, and every other system that affects the quality of life (and how long we live it). But according to Dr. Roizen and Dr. Oz, that's a mistake.
Aging isn't a decline in our systems. It's actually very purposeful. The very systems and biological processes that age us are designed to help us when we're a little bit younger. So what's our role as part of the aging population? To learn how those systems work so we can reprogram them to work the way they did when we were younger. Your goal should be: die young at any age. That means you live a high quality of life (with everything from working joints to working genitals) until the day you die.
At the core of this landmark book are the Major Agers--14 biological processes that control your rate of aging. Some you've heard of, some you haven't, and some you never knew contributed to the aging process. Some speed decline, others inhibit your repair mechanisms. These Major Agers are everything from short telomeres and inefficient mitochondria to stem cells and wacky hormones. The doctors explain the principles of longevity and many of the causes of aging and how to fight the effects. The climax of the book is a 14-day plan to help you along your path to staying young. The doctors want you to be able to integrate important processes into your daily life in order to make staying young routine, but first you'll need to measure your real age and health right now. Staying young encompasses your emotions and mental health as well as your exercise habits, eating habits, personal hygiene, and genes, among other things.
Wouldn't you like to know how to prevent your body from aging badly? The original YOU book showed how bodies work in general, and YOU: On a Diet explained how bodies lose weight and stay fit. Now in YOU: Staying Young, Drs. Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz illuminate the mysterious mechanisms with a lively metaphor -- the modern city. What differentiates a vibrant and thriving city that ages gracefully from one that is worn down and rusted out? Despite genetic differences, which are like the geography upon which the city is built, cities age differently because of the way residents treat their education system (stem cells), power plants (mitochondria), electrical grids (brains), transportation routes (blood vessels), and landfills (fat). You -- as mayor, resident, and street cleaner -- have the power to balance your biological budget to ensure a life that's both long and strong. Thankfully, just as cities can invest in renewal and improving their repair processes, so can you.
YOU: Staying Young is filled with signature YOU Tools, including YOU Tests, YOU Tips, and visual and verbal metaphors to bring the science to life.
A Letter from Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz
Dear Amazon Shoppers:
Our books, YOU: The Owner?s Manual and YOU: On a Diet, have become #1 Amazon and New York Times bestsellers, and we thank you. Many people have asked us questions about aging. We want you to know that the science in the last very few years has challenged the very perceptions of aging.
Most of us tend to have the same view of the way people age: As we grow older, we start losing things. We lose some hair, lose our minds, lose our balance, lose our eyesight, lose a little of this and a lot of that until we eventually wither away into a hunched-over senior who takes 3-inch steps and eats dinner at 4:00 pm. But to think that a life of frailty is an inevitable outcome of aging is a mistake. And the fact that we don't take control of it is because we have excuses. We live in a society where making excuses is as easy as making a sandwich. Nowhere is that more apparent than when it comes to your own health. The reason why we are frazzled with stress? Blame the boss. The reason why we are sick? Blame the sniffling kids. The reason why our society?s waistbands are stretching and snapping at alarming rates? Blame Auntie's alfredo sauce. The top health excuse, however, revolves around the biggest four-letter word of them all, the GENE. We blame our genes for just about everything--for baldness, for fatness, for illness and for every other health-related problem we can think of. In our minds, that means that our mom, pop, and the rest of the family tree are all on the hook for the ultimate health question of them all--how long and how well we will live?
But that is exactly where more of us have it wrong. While we are certainly born with genes that help determine everything from our height to our risk of heart disease, we are making a monumental mistake by assuming that we can?t control our genes--especially when it comes to aging.
Perhaps the best way to explain the dynamics of aging is to take a look at another complex system that is subjected to the same forces as your body: a city. Some cities remain beautiful and elegant in their old age, while younger ones may look worn down and beat-up. Now, every city has its own genetic code, just as you do. For a city, genes are geography; whether it's built on a river or whether it's located in a hot or cold climate, or whether it lies directly in a prevalent hurricane path. A city's geography can't change. But the city can adapt to the environment with earthquake-proof construction, with underground tunnels for walking in wintertime, or with strong levies. The adaptation the city makes to survive and to thrive is what is crucial to its vitality.
The same goes for you.
Just because you have been dealt a genetic hand that predisposes you to heart disease or diabetes or the wearing of pants as large as a parachute doesn't mean you can't mitigate the effects of those genes. One of the major things we will teach you is that while you can't change your genes, you can change whether they are turned on or off or how you express them. Just like a city, you can compensate elegantly if you understand your options.
For the first time in history, the medical world has uncovered many of the miraculous biologic processes that control how and why we age. Truth is, much of aging is actually in our control; with the power to nudge our biologic systems so that our unwanted genes can work in our favor--as long as you know what to do and how you are doing it. In YOU: Staying Young, we translate the latest science (much of which wasn't available even three years ago) to help slow your rate of aging. You will learn 14 Major Agers, and dozens of action steps so that you can take control of those agers and your aging processes.
We hope you enjoy the cartoons, analogies, and jokes. But ultimately we hope you soak in the message: Your health is largely in your control. We dedicate the book to all who desire longer life so they can serve more.
Thanks very much,
Mike and Mehmet

- Fuel Your Fighters: One of the best ways to pump up your immune system is by eating the foods and getting the nutrients that have been shown to improve your natural defenses.
- Your Vital Supplements: The doctors' recommendations of pills and supplements that will make your body and mind stronger, healthier, and younger. It's best to get them from your diet, so consider these an insurance policy for an imperfect diet.
- Move Your Body: Most of your body parts become stronger when you use them. Take a glimpse at what you can and should do to make sure you're doing enough to prime your pumps.
Questions for the Doctors
Q: What is the single most important thing someone can do to combat aging?
A: To understand that you get to control your rate of aging if you want to. It isn't that hard and doesn't take that long. In fact, even if you have had burgers for breakfast or fried your brain cells with stress by noon, you're not necessarily destined to wear husky pants, forget birthdays, and spiral into a state of complete upheaval. That's right: You get a do-over in life if you want it. Repeat after us: not hard, not long.
Q: Is there one food, vitamin, mineral, exercise, or lifestyle change that does more to combat aging than any other?
A: Our top choices in terms of ease and impact:
- Walk 30 minutes a day and call someone after you do it. No excuses, walk every day. If you do it, you'll have the courage, health, and attitude to adopt other changes too.
- Take 2 grams of omega-3 fats every day in form of either walnuts, fish oil, or DHA supplements.
Q: What is one of the most surprising contributors to aging that we can easily remove from our lifestyles?
A: Inflammation of our teeth. Remove it with daily flossing and brushing and seeing a dental professional regularly. You won't just save your teeth; you'll also go a long way in saving your heart and arteries. Another? Our lack of turmeric--curry and mustard (mustard on stadium hot dogs does not qualify). Both of those ingredients make your memory better.
Q: What are some of the immediate benefits you will notice from following the tips in the book?
A: You will feel younger. You might get hit upon by strangers or be mistaken for someone 20 years younger. In addition to the waist size you'll lose, your new attitude and vitality for life may give your reading choice away.
Q: How early should most people start to focus on slowing the aging process?
A: The aging process starts in your teens or even before, but any time you start is better than later. (Repeat: not hard, not long.) Your cells basically have a memory of three years. So by changing your habits now, within three years, it's as if you have done your healthy habit all your life.

- Great Book.....
Oz does his usual best at explaining so many complicated things in ways that non-medical professionals can understand. The book also has cute drawings to illustrate ideas.
My only complaint against Oz is that in all his books he comes up with different exercise/diet plans. One book has a weight work out in for strength training. This one omits that completely and uses something called "chi gong".
Overall I find that I always feel I've learned something new after reading each of Oz's books....more info

- Cellular Health is where it all starts!
Fantasic book! Just like info on dontbeabrownapple.com for cellular health. Staying younger is about protecting our cells and keeping them healthy. So many good things in this book to know. The other important part is supplementing with high quality supplements such as 5 star rated ones in the Nutritional Guide for Supplements by Lyle MacWilliam. It makes a big difference what we take on top of what we eat for antioxidant protection, and getting enough exercise daily. Thank you Dr. Oz for helping spread the word about the importance of our health!...more info
- Some information, but Hard to Pick it Out
I was disappointed by this book. There is some useful information in here for general well-being in the "You Tips" section, but inbetween is a lot of, frankly, confusing and un-useful information. The authors try to make the book fun with a whole lot of cartoons, but they are very busy and very convoluted. I don't really want to have to stretch my imagination to think of my body as a metropolis and then look at a cartoon of my body parts (that are represented by buildings and streets...huh?) I would think the person who might be reading this book is 40 or over and, by then, fairly familiar with the human body and grown up enough for some straight talk. There is quite a bit of highly detailed DNA/cellular-level information and medical terms mixed in with one joke after another. Unfortunately, the book overall is highly annoying. Not interested in checking out the books in the other "You" series. I'll just stick to clean living and go back to my history books. ...more info
- The alcoholic's next job - fitness and wholeness
I'm an active, recovered member of the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous. I've licked alcoholism and survived devastating open heart surgery. And the road back was demanding, but rewarding. My son gave me this book because I have put my all into "fitness"--fitness in nutrition, fitness into exercise, fitness with supplements and medications, fitness with sleep restoration, and even fitness with Vitamin D3. And why? The excitement I have encountered at age 83 does not come from sobriety or survival. It comes from how much better I feel and act each day because I realize this old Model "T" could be restored, renovated, remodeled, and rescued. I'm still a Model "T," but I want to remain in the race and be a winner still. This book is an inspiring challenge and reward for those who want to stay at the job of living. In my own case, abstinence from drinking is a must but hardly a chore or a challenge. Reliance on God has been the pathway to cure. Following His precepts is the challenge and the necessity. Growth through Bible study, prayer, seeking guidance, and reading are part of the process. And helping others is critical. Now what does this have to do with the "You" book. Everything. Possibly the greatest difficulty in sobriety is the difficulty of picking up the whole armor of God and getting into the fray. Young people, just like I did, can easily fall into the belief that everything is just fine. Just fine, that is, until they see the shambles they have left in themselves and others. I believe emphasis on fitness, nutrition, exercise, sleep, wholesome recreation, more education, employment pursuits, family love, go hand in hand with recovery and cure. This book contains one of the many important road maps. And some of my books show how an alcoholic can utilize the maps and get somewhere besides the nearest bar or liquor store.

- Make the best of what you have
A decent, albeit overly entertaining, book of personal health. Just eat right, sleep right, and exercise right. Not as easily done as said. Now with many "funny" illustrations. As always, readers should spend less time reading such books and more time consistently acting upon the advice. The reader might actually extend his warranty. Actually, I preferred Roizen's earlier book "Realage." The www.realage.com site was been updated for your edification. However, some of the questions are personal. So, it does not hurt to set up a fake email account before using it....more info
- Excellent guide to aging process and what you can do about it
I have worked on personal nutrition when my father introduced me to the Pritikin diet in the 1980's saving me from a life time of obesity and poor health. I took that first step into self empowered health and wellness. I have run with it through today modifying the methods as new information is introduced. All along the way I have encountered the signs of aging but much less than and with excellent health for my age group. Basically pain free and full of energy in my late 50's Continuing with that effort I started the Vemma and Verve! nutrition program [...]
The book has confirmed much I have learned about nutrition and health in 20 years, probably while the authors were still in school or just starting out.
Good parts of this book are the balance between the real technical facts and great illustrations and analogies. The book is divided by short interestingly written sections called the Major Agers. These illustrate succinctly major agers such oxidation, stem cell slowdown, toxins, calorie consumption, declining defenses, wear & tear, UV radiation, wacky hormones and more. They set up what is happening to your body, why it happens. These are easy and motivational 2 - 4 page pieces. Then thinking of those sections as layers the filling in between are the details and steps you can take to help. You are giving the medical details in a way anyone can understand them.
I write about nutrition and health [...] now after living it and glad to see the medical profession showing some signs of encouraging personal prevention.
Read the book and learn to stay healthy and off of drugs as long as you can, hopefully such as depicted on the 16.1 illustration.
Finally the book contains the "YOU Extended Warranty Plan" on page 313. You could skip the first 313 pages (but it would be a big mistake) and just start following it. I have been following many aspects of that plan over the last 20 years and it has worked. There are many new items in the book I have to fill in the gaps of my activities.
You really need to look at Figure 16.1 on page 310 first before you read. Fix that image in your mind because that is the goal you want to work towards and you can do it.
Doctors, READ THIS BOOK! and start advising patients about nutritional easy to comply mineral, vitamin and anti-oxidant supplements they can take to aid their wellness....more info

- YOUseful Information
This is a neat book and must be a good inch and a half thick! It is divided up into two parts.
The theme of Part I is why you age and how you stay young. This section makes up roughly three quarters of the book. It deals mainly with what the book calls the "major agers." Examples of these include short telomeres, toxins, and ultraviolet radiation.
Part II is the plan to extend your warranty. Here you have a list of daily things to do which include such things as flossing, meditating, walking for 30 minutes a day, and getting the right amount of sleep.
Then there's a 14-day plan to help get you started- after that you should pretty much be on the right track. This section gives day-to-day advice and includes things for you to do for your mind AND body, things such as "do something as a family" that day, or "do the Chi-gong workout" today. Diet and exercise advice is also covered substantially in this section. Exercise consists of a YOU2 Workout (made up mainly of a series of stretches) and a Chi-gong Workout- both detailed step-by-step with exercising elves. Also need to mention they require no special equipment-nice!
All-in-all it's well worth the read, and for me, it's strength lies in it's vast amount of knowledge it offers on the aging processes of the human body. Packed with the stereotypical YOU tips, quizzes, factoids, and cartoons, most readers will benefit greatly. Also recommend Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff for readers who want to extend the life of their rotator cuff or have a shoulder problem that keeps them from exercising. ...more info
- Big disappointment
Having seen the doctor on Oprah, I was excited to get the book and more information. What a disappointment. There is little new material inside; instead there are pages and pages of cumbersome and cutesy graphics, which make for difficult reading.

- It was close to worthless
I didn't even notice that the advice being given almost never had research behind it, that is until I read their section on how bodies have energy fields auras and that is probably how the power of prayer affects our bodies? There were a few other bits of new age malarkey and urban legends I knew had been disproven spread seamlessly through the rest of their opinions and by the end of the book I found myself with not much new knowledge and questioning the accuracy of any of my newly acquired factoids. If you are like me then by the time you finish the book you will be a few days older and probably wishing you had spent your time and money on something else more productive....more info

- A Common Sense Approach
"...the excess sugar we consume today coalesces into a syrupy mixture that coats our organs and creates glasslike shards that can cut up the blood vessels and tissues of our body. The constant wounds of these sugar surges lead to chronic inflammation..." ~ pg. 145
Reading a book about aging can be depressing if you don't intend to do anything about it. If, however, you decide you are going to fight aging one step at a time then this book has a lot to offer. It covers topics as diverse as anger management, stress management and how to quit smoking. Each chapter ends with "YOU Tips" so you can get your life under control. Some of the questions they answer include:
Why should you avoid Trans fats?
How could separate bedrooms help you live longer?
What is the real reason women live longer?
Why do some men get breast cancer?
Why should you never use moth balls?
What is the real reason meditation works so well?
Why should you think twice about iron supplementation?
Why should you consider using sea salt instead of table salt?
"YOU: Staying Young" is designed to explain the intricate details of the aging process. A lot of the advice on staying young is common sense. Get enough sleep, eat fiber, eat whole grains, avoid sugar, exercise and take a multivitamin. Then there is good information about Vitamin D and how it is toxic to cancer cells. This book explains why you should consider taking Vitamin D daily even if you get enough sun exposure.
If you have insomnia you will appreciate the section on sleep disorders and the solutions. If you smoke, there is a section that will convince you to stop killing your "cilia." This book also covers the topics of diabetes, cancer, your immune system, brain function, hormone therapy, UV Radiation and how to have stronger bones.
At the end of the book there is a section on expensive lab tests, information on cleaners (I use Seventh Generation and Mrs. Meyer's cleaning products already and they work as well as regular cleaners) that are not harmful to the environment.
"People who sleep fewer than six hours a night have a 50 percent increased risk of viral infections and an increased risk of heart disease and stroke." ~ pg. 181
If you want to read about how you can take control of the aging process in a big way, I can also recommend books by Stephen Cherniske, especially The Metabolic Plan: Stay Younger Longer. Stephen Cherniske also has a book on caffeine: Caffeine Blues: Wake Up to the Hidden Dangers of America's #1 Drug, which I'm going to review soon. In this book coffee is recommended more than once and up to 5 cups a day. I think taking aspirin and drinking lots of coffee deserves more research by the reader because I've heard both sides of the story and it comes down to a risk assessment. For some people, coffee can cause insomnia and too much aspirin can make your gums bleed.
Unlike some of the reviewers, I loved the cartoons by Gary Hallgren because they really made the book come alive.
~The Rebecca Review
- Great Reading!

- You and Omega-3
Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen present a definitive plan to fight what they call the `Major Agers' and lay out a plan for staying young and feeling young. Key to feeling this way are what we've been hearing from our physicians for years: we need to eat right, exercise and supplement our diets with nutrients and vitamins to avoid deficiencies.
Staying Young answers questions that encompass our emotional and mental health, as well as our eating habits, genetic make-up and all around physical health. This book provides a well rounded dialogue and an easy-to-understand program to `extending your warranty'.
While I agree with other reviewers that, at times, the text and drawings can be a bit juvenile, I find that the information disseminated is scientific, yet easily understood by a layman like me. Entertaining and enlightening, descriptive and detailed, I enjoyed this installment in the `YOU' series and learned quite a bit.
I wanted to write a review because of all the reading I have been doing on healthy living and the benefits of taking omega-3 fish oil. Staying Young also mentions the benefits of these supplements many times. Our bodies do not make omega-3s, therefore, we must get their benefits from fatty fish or fish oil supplements. With our diets today, it seems most realistic for me to go the supplement route.
I take a pharmaceutical grade fish oil product called PharmaOmega Life that I found here on Amazon. Pharmaomega Life Omega-3 90 softgels - MINT FLAVOR This omega-3 supplement has multiple health benefits. It supports healthy joints and bones, emotional well-being, and a healthy heart and circulatory system. It has the highest and purest dosage of EPA and DHA available without a prescription. I have noticed a big reduction in my aches and pains associated with aging and my doctor says my triglyceride level has gone down considerably since taking the PharmaOmega supplements.
According to the American Heart Association research shows that consumption EPA and DHA omega fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary disease. I am happy to have read that Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen recommend taking a daily supplement of Omega-3. They have affirmed what my body is already telling me. It works!

I ORDERED THE BOOK TO COMPLETE THE SET OF BOOKS THAT WERE AUTHORED BY DR. OZ. I USE THE BOOKS THAT HE IS CO-AUTHORING AS REFERENCE MATERIAL WHEN I NEED INFORMATION ABOUT CERTAIN TOPICS. I AM INTERESTED IN KNOWING IF THERE IS ANY WAY TO INCORPORATE HIS FINDINGS AND MATERIAL INTO MY PERSONAL AGING PROCESS. I ORDRED A USED COPY AND IT WAS AS GOOD AS ANY COPY THAT I COULD PURCHASE AT RETAIL PRICE. ...more info

It is not as informative as I thought it would be. It is OK, but certainly won't change my lifestyle....more info
- Not as great as I hoped...
Was not very interesting, seemed like it would be an interesting read after watching Oprah, but I barely skimmed through it and then put it away. Not very interesting read......more info
- You: Staying Young
Very informative. I found a lot of useful information and it made me rethink some of the choices I have made. Some of the drawings are verybasic, but cute. It helped keep the book from being too "text bookish". It was a very "easy read". None of the chapters were too long, which can be a problem with self-help books. I hope to be able to apply the information to my life.
