John Russell, MDJohn Russell, MD, director of the Family Medicine Residency Program at Abington Hospital - Jefferson Health, talks with Dr. Sanjiv Chopra, author of The Big Five: Five Simple Things You Can Do to Live a Longer, Healthier Life. Dr. Chopra is professor of medicine and former faculty dean for Continuing Medical Education at Harvard Medical School. Drs. Russell and Chopra discuss five easy changes that anyone can implement to improve their overall health.

Dr. Chopra’s book delves into how the underlying promise of every exciting medical discovery, diet, and exercise program is the same: do this, buy this, or eat this and you will look better, live longer, and be healthier. But few books can make the promise of this one: if you adapt these five simple, virtually-free suggestions it will help you live a longer and healthier life.

This is no fad study. Each of the recommendations outlined in this book has been proven by an overwhelming number of tests, trials, and studies to increase health and lifespan. There are no gimmicks, no catches, no ifs, ands, or buts.
