As a follow-up to the New York Times Best-Seller, The Body Book, Cameron Diaz released The Longevity Book: The Science of Aging, the Biology of Strength, and the Privilege of Time.
In an effort to educate women of all ages about the functionality of their bodies while empowering them to make well-informed choices about health and beauty, this starlet wanted to identify the real struggle of understanding the way the body ages and heals on a cellular level. Various experts, such as highly-accredited physicians, top-tier surgeons, advanced scientists and nutritionists contributed their research and knowledge about the biological differences in the way aging effects men and women, how growing older impacts distinct bodily systems, and why certain habits can lead to an all-encompassing holistic attitude towards how the female body preserves and how ladies can do it better and smarter!
As women transition into mid-life, maintaining optimal health requires more than just daily energy, but a total mind & body movement. This book provides an outlined guide that breaks down what it means to truly “age”.
Cameron Diaz is a celebrity on a mission. She continues her journey promoting her latest book with an open conversation among her peers. Diaz discussed this essential topic by drawing information from history, science, and her personal experience in the limelight; a headline that for far too long has been seen as a taboo subject in society.
Cameron inquired to the audience, “What is aging? Do any of us really know?”
She addressed, “We seem to be punished for it- especially women. We have this prejudice because we don’t really understand it. That is what this book was about for me.”
Prior to 150 years ago (which in the grand scheme of all of mankind really isn’t that long), the life expectancy for a woman was 40. So when you think about it, it has only been within that time frame that we are able to explore what exactly happens through the regeneration phase of our cells.
Diaz exclaims, “You have to say to yourself, I’m going to decide to be a better old person than young person. Aging is living so congrats!”

I also spoke with distinguished dual-board certified professional, Dr. Monica Tadros MD, F.A.C.S. of Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery who offered her prowess on anti-aging strategies, methods, techniques and procedural treatments.
Dr. Tadros states, “Aging gracefully requires making choices that are right for you. We feel great when how we look on the outside reflects how we feel on the inside. It is a simple algorithm: Does how you look make you happy? If not, what would make you happy? It’s important to know that you have choices and to make the choices that are right for you.”
Tadros continued, “Skin care and volume are paramount. There are countless non-surgical and invasive options available and that’s the best place to begin. A good relationship with the right doctor will help you navigate through an overwhelming number of possibilities and/or alternatives to make informed choices that are right for you.”
By accepting the certainty that everyone matures, women can take the proper initiative to utilize the different tools which will help them appear and feel more youthful from the inside and out!
