'The Hundred-Year Diet': Guidelines and Recipes for a Long and Vigorous Life
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- One in every 1,000 Americans will spend today in a hospital bed. By some estimates, half of those hospitalizations could have been prevented. As obesity replaces smoking as the leading cause of degenerative illness, many people are attempting to adopt better eating and health habits. However, with so much information floating around about what's healthy and what's not, sorting through it all can be a daunting task. In their new book, "The Hundred-Year Diet: Guidelines and Recipes for a Long and Vigorous Life" (published by iUniverse), Dr. Blair and Sue Beebe separate what is fact and what is fad to present a true roadmap for a long and healthy life.

"'The Hundred-Year Diet' reviews the principles of disease prevention with an emphasis on reducing risk factors that pose the greatest danger to good health. Although it does not pretend to offer a magic formula for fast weight reduction, following the nutritional guidelines consistently will result in a more permanent normalization of weight. Strong evidence supports the conclusion that a poor diet underlies many serious chronic diseases."

The Beebes live in Portola Valley, just south of San Francisco, and have four children and eight grandchildren.
