Dawn Harper:  Live Well to 101

We are living longer than ever before so it's more important than ever that we take good care of our bodies and our health - and enjoy those extra years by keeping fit and well for as long as possible. Leading media medic, Dr Dawn Harper, from Channel 4s Embarrassing Bodies shows you how to invest in your health now to improve your chances of enjoying life in your later years to the full.

Dr Dawn Harper draws on scientific research, her eight years experience on Channel 4s Embarrassing Bodies and over twenty-one years as an NHS and private GP to give you the latest advice on diet, exercise and lifestyle choices that have been clinically proven to improve longevity and quality of life.

She will answer the following questions:

*If longevity is pre-programmed in your genes, is there anything you can do to change it?

*Do people who have more sex live longer?

*Does where you live make a difference?

*What is a healthy diet?

*Is it worth paying for private health care or expensive medical scans?

*What can we learn from people who are living well to an older age?

*Will getting a dog or cat add years to your life?
