Red wine is good for us. Alcohol is bad for us. Cut out sugar. Eat less fat. Eat more fat. Every day we’re bombarded by often-contradictory advice on what to do to keep ourselves healthy.

How can we separate fact from fad? Written by medical clinician Merlin Thomas, this is the ultimate myth-busting guide to what will help you live a long and healthy life. Professor Thomas looks at each item on the “longevity list”, analyzes why it’s come to be considered a health priority, and gives his scientifically backed verdict on how much attention we really need to pay to it.

Along the way you’ll discover stacks of intriguing, entertaining, and often very funny facts. Why do people get drunk more quickly on champagne? Is caffeine really a performance-enhancing drug? Can chocolate improve your sex life? This is the one-stop checklist to living a life that might just see you reach your 100th birthday and beyond!

'There is so much contradictory information about increasing lifespan. Red wine is good for you. Don't drink alcohol. Cut out fats. Eat good fats. This engaging book provides the facts about the effectiveness of lifestyle trends such as quitting sugar, reducing booze and eating more veg, and pinpoints what really makes a difference to long-term health. It also demystifies concerns such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Sensible stuff.'
