Summary
Providing an overview of current public health research on ageing, "Ageing Well: Nutrition, Health, and Social Interventions" explores the application of this research to public policy. The book focuses on the biological issues in ageing: diet, exercise, and cognitive health. It offers an in-depth exploration of social issues relevant to policy, discussing social inequalities, economics, the importance of quality housing, quality of life, cost of living, and social support for older people. Consisting of proceedings from the annual symposium of the Society for the Study of Human Biology, this interdisciplinary volume also addresses methodological, research, and policy questions
