Journal of Longevity: A little for a lot

May 7, 2000
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Up to date medical news

Cons:expensive, small

For some reason unknown to me, I recieved an issue of this magazine for free in the mail. Having just retired from nursing, I thought it might be one I could learn from, and therefore be might be interested in buying in the future.

The Journal of Longevity is a fine magazine in that the articles are varied and easy to understand. However, this magazine is basically just random articles on specific illnesses or health problems, and would seem to be "hit or miss" regarding articles that would be pertinent to the average consumer.

I do like that each article is backed up with reference information from extremely reputable sources, and this somewhat makes up for the articles themselves not being very in depth. The actual studies and reports can be looked up through the resources given, where you can find additional information.

I find the magazine helpful in the area of "medical news", however-this information is generally obtainable through the usual avenues of media and therefore it seems a bit ridiculous to pay a whooping $4.95 for it!

This magazine is also unusually small-around 50 pages, with the ratio of advertising to information being about average. The last few pages are dedicated to an order form for vitamins, books, and other health care products for anti-aging, skin care, and special "package formulas" that concentrate on various areas of the body (heart, lungs, brainpower, etc).
Personally, I feel this is a little dangerous, as interactions with other vitamins and medications should be monitored by your physician-or at least a qualified pharmacist.

All in all, I'm glad the issue I got was free. I would not pay $4.95 for it!
