"Joan Vernikos gives practical recommendations on how we can
best take charge of our health and maintain our independence."
Sen. John Glenn, forward to The G-Connection, Harness Gravity and Reverse Aging
Foreword by astronaut and Senator John Glenn. Non-English Versions below.
Peppered with first-hand anecdotes from astronauts and interesting stories of Vernikos's own voyage of discovery, this book is both a fun and credible resource. The reader finishes the book knowing what to do differently in his or her daily life to slow down or even reverse the aging process.
After 30 years of pioneering research with NASA, Joan Vernikos has written the first book to focus on the fundamental importance of gravity in maintaining youthful vigor. In it, she applies lessons learned from the experiences of U.S. astronauts and Soviet/Russian cosmonauts in space to ordinary people here on Earth. Highly practical, the "What You Can Do About It" section in each chapter is a comprehensive guide that will help young people, baby boomers, the elderly, and professionals make smart lifestyle choices.
