Chasing Life Cheating Death

Winning Health Strategies from Around the World

By: Dr. Sanjay Gupta
Date: December 2008
Source: Success magazine


For many of us, living as long as we can really means living as well as we can. In fact, most people I’ve talked with in my world travels as a medical correspondent are not so interested in living as long as they can unless they continue to be of sound mind and sound body.

One of the analogies that struck me during an interview is good and simple: We want to live our lives like an incandescent light bulb—burning brightly our entire lives and suddenly going out. We don’t want all the fl ickering that we see with the fl uorescent light bulbs at the end, which is emblematic of being bedridden, in hospitals, in nursing homes, etc.

Like many, I’m busy with my career, a growing family and the desire to be healthy. I happen to be fortunate enough to travel the world and learn from the very best scientists and people who are very successful at living long and well, or at “chasing life,” as I call it in my book.

There are some common threads among those who live the best lives. I’ll share with you a few that are not so obvious, but easily integrated into the most hectic lifestyles.
