Diet and Exercise

by Jason Prall


In the Western world, our diet and lifestyles have strayed so far from those of our ancestors that they have put us in real danger. By processing foods before they get to our plate and by living a mostly sedentary lifestyle, we're setting up our bodies for a plethora of issues.

The Human Longevity Project is Jason Prall's way of sharing important health information with the world. Prall, once an engineer, became an entrepreneur when his own struggle with chronic health problems opened up his eyes to crucial secrets of well-being.

In this book, interviews with experts and wisdom from people who've managed to remain healthy through old age illuminate the ways in which we can implement simple changes to lead longer, better lives.
