This unique book delivers the latest science in nutrition, ageing and dementia risk reduction in everyday language - so you can enjoy the life you had planned for the years ahead.
You will learn food and life choices crucial to preventing avoidable physical and cognitive decline and the stark difference between those at 40 or 50, compared to what's needed as you move closer to your 80s and beyond.
