For centuries, adventurers and scientists have believed that not only could we delay death but that "practical immortality" was within our reach. Today, many well-respected researchers would be inclined to agree. In a book that is not about anti-aging, but about functional aging--extending your healthy, active life--Dr. Sanjay Gupta blends together compelling stories of the most up-to-date scientific breakthroughs from around the world, with cutting-edge research and advice on achieving practical immortality in this lifetime. Gupta's advice is often counterintuitive: longevity is not about eating well, but about eating less; nutritional supplements are a waste of your money; eating chocolate and drinking coffee can make you healthier. CHASING LIFE tells the stories behind the breakthroughs while also revealing the practical steps readers can take to help extend youth and life far longer than ever thought possible.

Editorial Reviews

“Sanjay Gupta prescribes sensible, evidence-based advice for living a long and healthy life. He evaluates the latest scientific research on life extension, looks at antiaging claims, and concludes that informed lifestyle choices are your best hope of maintaining good health as you age. Chasing Life is good medicine.” Andrew Weil, MD, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Sanjay Gupta is at his best in Chasing Life, covering everything from illegal stem cells to the scientific edges of memory. To achieve your own version of immortality, you can simple ‘page’ Dr. Gupta by turning the first page of this groundbreaking new book.” Mehmet C. Oz, MD, New York Times bestselling author
“With stories and research from all over the world, the Time and CNN medical correspondent describes the eating, lifestyle, and emotional patterns of people who have long, healthy lives. The value of exercising, restricting calories, and reducing sugar and fat intake are well known, but it’s fascinating to hear these habits supported in such diverse ways. With his experience on camera, Gupta knows how to present complex information in sound bites anyone can comprehend.” AudioFile
“This is a fascinating look at the research being done and its promise for the future. It will tell you how to live not only longer but also better. Highly recommended.” Library Journal
