As Chinese population is aging, questions regarding how to live a long and good life — especially in one's late years — have received increasing attention in recent years.

Last year, Outlive: The Science and Art of Longevity by US longevity expert Peter Attia was published. Based on years of clinical experience and medical research, the book explores a new approach to preventing chronic diseases and extending long-term health, becoming a New York Times bestseller.

Recently, a Chinese translation of the book has been released by China Translation & Publishing House at the 36th Beijing Book Fair.

Liu Yongchun, chief editor at the publishing house, said in the launch ceremony that the idea of seeking treatment after diseases develop that often prolong life span at the expense of health span (quality of life) has been replaced by a new idea — preventing diseases with a well-founded strategic and tactical approach to extending life span while enhancing people's physical, cognitive and emotional well-being.

Tian Tongsheng, the founder of a Chinese community that seeks to prolong life span and health span with science and technology, said that pursuing longevity does not simply mean prolonging people's physical life, but extending their health span, so that they can get rid of the plight where although they live a longer life, they suffer from bad health and have to rely on the care of other family members and thus are not able to live a quality, decent life in late years.

He regards the book as a good guide to daily practice. For example, during the exercise of running, people can refer to the suggestion in the book to monitor their heart rates, assess their sleep, and know their maximum oxygen uptake to improve cardiovascular fitness.
