Carl Bourhenne's Fitness and Long Life Manual
Youthful and Attractive
It was in 1972 that I first noticed my parents beginning to show their age, and adopted the study of fitness and long life as my primary hobby. I wanted to know all of the important ways to live the longest life possible, youthful and attractive. In 1976 I founded the "Carl I. Bourhenne Medical Research Foundation", a California tax exempt non-profit Corporation (originally named "Health, Beauty, and Aging Control Medical Research Foundation") to perform research on fitness and anti-aging.
Realizing how much I did not know, and aspiring to become the world's leading expert on how to live a healthy long life, youthful and attractive, I returned to school and earned a Master's Degree in Gerontology - the study of the aging process - from California State University. During my Master's program I concentrated on the biology of aging, and on scientific research methods. I became so adept at evaluating the research of other scientists that my leading research professor asked me to give a demonstration in class on detecting badly done research.
My Master's thesis "How To Live The Longest Life Possible" contributes to this web site. My fond wish is that you will have many more years of fitness and long life, youthful and attractive, than you would have if you had not met me.
My more than twenty years of research on HOW TO LIVE THE LONGEST LIFE POSSIBLE, and a Master's Degree in Gerontology - the study of the aging process - have yielded 17 major subjects which significantly affect how long we live, and how we ourselves can influence both the length, and the quality of our lives.
