THE POSSIBILITY OF LIVING
by F.O. Havens
The Possibility of Living 200 Years, by F. O. Havens was published in San Francisco in 1896. Very informative book on maintaining health with an objective towards longevity.
This work represents the labor of many odd hours in a life devoted to business pursuits. No claim is made that the discoveries and suggestions relative to diet are new or original. Much reading and observation in regard to this subject showed the possibility of condensing the salient features of the works of leading authors on the subject of longevity – a subject of more importance to humanity than any and all others.
There is no royal road to health or long life, but neither is there any need for people to grope their way blindly along, and make both a matter of mere chance, as the vast majority of the human race are now doing. Such writers as De Lacy Evans, and other scientific investigators, point out a path to perfect health, and prove age to be a controllable disease.
