Publisher's Description

During his more than thirty years as a vascular surgeon, Richard Furman literally held clogged arteries and diseased hearts in his hands and wondered why the person lying on the table hadn't been more careful. Heart disease is the number one killer of men and women in America, and in most cases it is completely preventable. So why are we slowly destroying our bodies and killing ourselves? And what can we do to turn it around?

The good news is, simple, sustainable lifestyle changes can mean the difference between health and infirmity, between life and death. Putting his three decades of experience and education to work, Dr. Furman gives readers the strategies they need to live not just longer, but younger. This essential resource to health helps readers

-achieve and maintain their ideal weight
-reduce their risk for life-threatening diseases
-make exercise a natural part of their lives
-learn what foods to eat and what foods to avoid

It even shows how following the plan can not only eliminate heart disease, but also keep people safe from various cancers, dementia, diabetes, stroke, erectile dysfunction, and other age- and obesity-related problems.

Dr. Furman wants readers to realize that poor health during one's "golden years" is not inevitable. It can and should be avoided at all cost. And with his expert advice, readers can live long, healthy, vibrant lives, enjoying time with friends and family instead of wasting it in doctors' offices and hospitals.

Furman is past president of the North Carolina Chapter of the American College of Surgeons, past president of the North Carolina Surgical Society, and a two-term governor of the American College of Surgeons. He is cofounder of World Medical Mission, the medical arm of Samaritan's Purse, and is a member of the board of Samaritan's Purse. He lives in North Carolina.

Endorsements

"Dr. Furman lays out a thorough review of the medical literature, written in layman's terms in such a way that it is easily understood. Read it. Apply it. If you are like the majority of Americans, you will become 7–12 years younger physiologically than you presently are chronologically."
---Bill Frist, nationally recognized heart and lung transplant surgeon, former US Senate Majority Leader, and Chairman of the Executive Council of Cressey and Company

    An eye opener, thought provoking book. Lots of very good information. I bought a few to share with friends & they all liked it. Am thinking to buy more as Christmas gifts - a gift to good health.

    This is a very good book. The wisdom in this book will encourage you to eat right and all the foods can be purchased at the grocery store.

    I really like the fact that that this surgeon has seen the results of eating high fat foods and he has studied how to prevent the blockage problems from the buildup they can cause. Because of this testimony from a surgeon who "cleans up the problems" the book carries more weight. I do not like pain and I want to keep the same activities that I like to be involved in--keep my own home, gardening, sewing, reading, and walking. I do not want to have to have aid walking or living. This is not a hard read or a hard life style change.

    How good is a book that you cant pry away from the finder to write your review?

    How good is a book that you dont have to read because the finder discusses some find of interest on every page?

    My pre-reviewer, an avid reader of all things Health-related, is really enjoying this book. Weve had many a discussion over the ideas presented.

    A solid, basic book that intersects with good reading in this area for the last few decades, with twigs of the advancing knowledge to whet your pursuit of ideas and information in this area. A good beginner book, and a good entry book or a good complimentary read for the pursuer of good, better and best health. A good outline for lifelong good health, especially for the Adult.

    Richard Furman in his new book, Prescription for Life published by Revell teaches us Three Simple Strategies to Live Younger Longer.

    From the Back Cover: Dr. Richard Furman is a vascular surgeon with decades of experience. But his personal journey into living younger longer began with a tight pair of pants. Rather than go up a size, he decided to get back to his ideal weight. He changed how he ate. He began to exercise regularly. He started intensive research into what it takes to prevent the kind of conditions his patients had. What he found changed his life . . . and will change yours.

    Do you want to be healthy and active all of your life?

    Do you want to enjoy not just long life but quality life?

    Do you want to be therewholly therefor your family and friends?

    Aging is inevitable, but heart disease, cancer, diabetes, dementia, stroke, erectile dysfunction, and other age- and obesity-related problems are not! Simple, sustainable changes you make today can mean the difference between enjoying time with friends and family, and wasting it in doctors offices and hospitals.

    Dr. Furman has written a book that asks one very important question: do you want to take control over your health or let disease rob you of your health and future? Dr. Furman is not taking prisoners, it is make the healthy changes or risk your life and future and continue doing what you are doing now. There are seven parts to this book: What You Need To Understand About The Aging Process, Eat The Right Foods, Reach Your Ideal Weight, Exercise, Preventing Dementia, Preventing Cancer, Preventing Erectile Dysfunction. We want to get healthy, this is a way to get there. It does require commitment. And it does require that we make a major change in what we do and eat. If you are ready to do that then this is the book for you.

    This book is like having a Doctor in the house! There are alot of things in this book that are good to know! This health book gives you all you need to know about living a healthy life! If we would all use some of these ideas we would be better off! If you gained some weight would you buy a bigger size or would you loose the weight to fit the clothes you already have! Also I like the fact that he gives his proceeds to Samaritans Purse!
