LOS ANGELES, March 31 (UPI) -- Cameron Diaz is taking on the taboos surrounding the aging process in her newest book, The Longevity Book, in order to teach others how to live their healthiest lives.
In a letter published to her book website, the Hollywood actress discussed how aging gets a bad rap. According to her, aging "isn't about getting old it's about LIVING."
"You need to have information that helps you to not just live a lifespan but more importantly a HEALTHSPAN," Diaz wrote. Her book, she added, will consist of "data gathered from the most cutting edge research institutions, information about the history of women's health, history that we can look to in order to inform the path of our future."
The 43-year-old star is already the author of The Body Book, which discussed the complexities of the human body on a scientific level and how readers can use that knowledge to live healthier.
In an Instagram photo promoting her new book, Diaz added the caption: "Learning that you can age well, will actually help you age better. If you understand how your body works then you can take action to help keep it in the best possible condition so it can carry you through a long and beautiful life."
The Longevity Book will hit shelves April 5.
