Chasing Dr. Gupta
"Chasing Life" is the title of Dr. Gupta's first book (coming April 9 from Warner Wellness books). It also is the name of the Special Investigations Unit program that will air on CNN next month. The book and the hour-long documentary examine what people do to live healthier, longer. Dr. Gupta will show you what works and what doesn't and provide information on what you can do today to age less.
What could Dr. Gupta do to live a longer, healthier life? As one of the people who chases the man who's been chasing life, I can tell you this: He should probably try to get more sleep -- not easy for someone who doesn't like to be still for very long. But I'm no expert. Dr. Gupta, though, has talked to the experts and they've given him a personal prescription. Watch for it and more in "Chasing Life" at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET on Saturday and Sunday, April 14 and 15.
In the meantime, I'd like to know what you do to stay young. What are you doing now that you think will help your body and mind to remain active in your later years?
