Constant exposure to our environment, the things we eat, and stresses from both inside and outside our bodies all cause us to age over time. Although scientists have not yet found a way to delay the biological processes of aging, they are learning more about how healthy behavioral practices, such as maintaining a well-balanced diet, are critical to fostering good health throughout our lives. The latest research confirms that good nutrition gives you the power to maintain and improve your health, add vitality to your years, and reduce your risk of disease.
