KIRKUS REVIEW

Old D Brady"", as he refers to himself, is a popular (California) columnist (syndicated in some 80 papers) and is a prime example of a man still in his prime. Longevity he believes is a vascular question- a ""man is as old as his arteries"" which is more than just a question of cholesterol. Vite -- the word he has coined to represent the key to youth at any age - depends on many things, beginning with the care of your teeth and mouth, emphasizing dietary factors such as calcium- odine- and vitamins, and including a regimen of exercises. He discusses as well many phases of chronic illness (indigestion, the common cold, tonsils- in v out, joint disability, heart, etc., etc.) and makes definite recommendations which preclude excessive dosing (certainly with the miracle drugs) and more extreme measures unless absolutely necessary. Old-fashioned, moderate, Dr. Brady's opinions seem more obstreperous than they really are and there may be many who will be ready to practise what he preaches although there is none of the sure-cure-allure of Folk Medicine, etc.,- just the common sense.
