This quote was taken from a recent article written by Dr. Aseem Malhotra an NHS cardiologist and member of the board of trustees of the King’s Fund:
A combination of eating well with the right type of exercise and stress reduction is not only a powerful treatment of chronic disease; it may also slow down the ageing process.

The excerpt below was taken from American College of Lifestyle Medicine President Dr. David Katz, MD, MPH:
“Lifestyle as medicine has the potential to prevent up to 80% of chronic disease; no other medicine can match that. In addition, it is potentially inexpensive and even cost-saving; free of all but good side effects; safe and appropriate for children and octogenarians alike. It is, quite simply, the best medicine we've got.”
