As we get older, many of the choices we make have a profound effect on how we age. While there are things we cannot avoid—such as genetics—we can make wise choices that may help us maintain better health throughout our lives. A factor that we can have immediate control over is what we eat.
Our Health Resource of the Week gives you an overview of nutrition and healthy aging. It explores the biological processes of aging, how we can maintain health throughout our lives with healthy lifestyles, and how scientists are learning more about the specific nutrients that can positively impact health.
By watching this, you'll have a better understanding of the links between good nutrition and healthy aging. After you view the film below, be sure to get more resources at our Nutrition page.
