Finished reading: Outlive by Peter Attia 📚
Outlive is about being proactive in your health and doing what you can to try and prevent the Four Horseman of Chronic Disease (heart disease, cancer, metabolic disorders, and neurodegenerative disease). It is a long and detailed read. I would recommend starting with the audio version, and if you want to dig deeper, grab a copy of the print edition later.
My biggest takeaways:
- Heart disease is mostly preventable, and it is baffling that it is still the leading cause of death in the US. The phrase no one dies of a sudden heart attack sounds so wrong initially, but when you realize it was likely 20+ years of bad habits that led to the sudden heart attack, you may want to kick yourself.
- Metabolic disorders, like heart disease, are mostly preventable and lead to other issues besides diabetes.
