Können wir bis ins hohe Alter fit und gesund bleiben? Sind Verfall und Krankheit wirklich unausweichlich? David B. Agus geht diesen fundamentalen Fragen nach und zeigt, wie eine neue Sichtweise auf unsere Gesundheit jedem Einzelnen den Weg ebnet zu jenem bisher unerreichbaren Ziel: einem langen und gesunden Leben. Wider aller herkömmlichen Herangehensweisen plädiert Agus für die "personalisierte Medizin": Jeder Mensch ist anders, jeder Körper muss anders gepflegt und gesund gehalten werden. Mit den Mitteln der modernen Medizin soll jeder seinen Körper "vermessen" und mit den Daten genau jene Verhaltensweisen erarbeiten, die Krankheiten verhindern. Dieses Buch ist auch eine unerschrockene Herrausforderung an jeden von uns: die Verantwortung für die eigene Gesundheit zu übernehmen. Und es ist ein Grundlagenwerk, das unser ganzes Leben verändern wird.
