Vineyard lecture on Weds July 11 @ 5pm
The summer heats up as the hottest new magazine, N, debuts Dr. monto's new book, The Fountain: A Doctor's Prescription to Make 60 the New 30.
Here's an excerpt..." I am afraid of dying. It’s not the end that concerns me, it’s what happens before. You see, getting older is a relatively new thing, and we really aren’t that good at it. To be sure, modern medicine has done a great job helping us all live longer. Clean water, antibiotics and modern surgery have postponed the ultimate checkout time for most of us. The problem is that while lifespan has increased, our health span hasn’t kept pace.
Our parents, who worked their whole lives for a retirement they thought would be filled with joy and fulfillment, wither away while their frail bodies and minds disintegrate. They linger on while heart disease, hypertension, strokes, renal disease, diabetes, dementia and depression are more common than ever. Aging has become a disease. But it doesn’t have to be like this. We can turn the tide. How do I know? Because I’ve done it."
N Magazine is available online and at newstands and booksellers throughout Nantucket and Cape Cod.
Now you can multitask while you upgrade your life!
Narrated by the amazing Patrick Lawlor, The Fountain is sporting a new cover design and a new slot as the #1 new Amazon release on aging. That's pretty damn cool.

"After a concussion you need to rest until ALL your symptoms have resolved for at least 24 hours. This period can be as brief as a day or two, or as long as a month depending on the severity of injury. You should discuss the recovery protocol with your doctor and training staff and inform your family, coach, and team of your status."
"Concussions often go unreported because 90% do not result in a loss of consciousness and players, coaches, and family members are not aware of the many different expressions of brain injury. While more than 60% of varsity soccer players have sustained a concussion playing soccer, only 19% realized it at the time."
"There is no denying the irresistible power of empathy. It can enlighten, connect, seduce, or heal. Empathy can be an invaluable tool for a physician dealing with a difficult patient, a businessman negotiating a complex international deal, or a parent struggling to understand a troubled child. The complex world of empathy is only now yielding to science..."
"We are all emotional detectives...A casual twirl of the hair, a gentle tilt of the head, or the flash of a playful smile can trigger flirtation and spark romance. The accuracy of our mood sensing and mind reading is crucial for building trust and relationships. Empathy is woven into the fabric of our family life, work, play, and health."
"You have to understand that like most orthopedic surgeons, I’m a denier. It’s my preferred coping style. I do dangerous things in a dangerous world. It works for me. I guess I’m a little jaded but I tend to take the long view and most problems seem to work themselves out. But this was different. I could sense Barry’s anxiety. Feel his distress. Frankly, I was getting a little anxious myself."
"...with the explosive global growth of soccer world combined with generally poor field conditions and an increasing number of synthetic surface fields, skin injuries seem to be increasing in number and severity. A Dutch study reported that 84% of professional soccer players sustained at least one major turf burn during the season with goalkeepers at highest risk. Several outbreaks of antibiotic resistant staph infections in athletic teams have been directly linked to frequent turf burns..."
