Investigative health journalist Judy Foreman shows how we can extend the healthy lifespan and reduce the lingering, debilitating effects of aging simply through exercise and its myriad effects on dozens of molecules in the brain, the muscles, and other organs. Though Foreman also delves into pills designed to combat aging and so-called exercise "mimetics," or pills that purport to produce the effects of exercise without the sweat, her resounding conclusion is that exercise itself is by far the most effective, and safest, strategy for promoting a long, healthy life.
