"I have thought for much of my life that health is far more important than life itself. There are many approaches to living the healthy life but the key is DOING the essentials. Those seven essentials are clearly described in Looking Up: Seven Steps for a Healthy & Youthful Midlife and Beyond. Now your only need is to DO THEM!"
 — C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., author of over 500 articles and 28 books
