Overview

For most of the past century, it was widely thought that delaying the human aging process was scientifically impossible. More recently, it has become increasingly clear that delaying aging is not only possible but a near-term reality. This book describes how theories of biological aging have evolved to support anti-aging medicine and summarizes the steadily increasing experimental evidence confirming that slowing the aging process is medically feasible. These developments are leading to fundamental changes in the way we think of age-related diseases like cancer and heart disease.

The author goes on to describe possible approaches to finding anti-aging agents and ways modern technology, including the Internet, could be applied to the search. Second edition 5/2014

    Some Very Interesting Ideas. This book describes recent advances

    Some Very Interesting Ideas.
    This book describes recent advances in scientific aging theories that lead to the realization that aging is a treatable condition. We do not age because of some law of nature that says aging is inevitable but instead we evolved “suicide mechanisms” that impose life spans that vary from species to species. These mechanisms evolved because they create a group advantage. Even though aging and a limited life span is obviously bad for the individuals involved, it produces a survival advantage for the group. The medical problem is to find “pharmaceutical agents” that can generally delay aging by interfering with the operation of the suicide mechanism. In other words, delaying aging is like delaying puberty, slowing growth, or retarding the operation of some other biological mechanism as opposed to trying to change a law of nature. The book goes on to describe ways in which the Internet and other modern data collection methods could be used in the search for such agents.
