Fifty today is looking more like 35 than ever before, except the ovaries don't know it yet!

Although they probably look, dress and feel much younger than their mothers or their grandmothers did at the same age, all the boomer women hitting 50 are still at as great a risk of heart attack, stroke, osteoporosis or breast cancer as previous generations.

Writer Sara Rosenthal, who specializes in women's health issues, provides all the information women need to maintain good health and prevent "bad aging." Each chapter is devoted to a top health concern, including type-2 diabetes, menopause, heart health, breast health, colon health, mental health, ovarian cancer and osteoporosis. Sections on what to eat and how to move, and explanations of how to prevent, delay or reverse age-related diseases, are featured in all chapters.
