Aging has long been considered a normal process. We think disease, frailty, and gradual decline are inevitable parts of life. But they're not.
Science today sees aging as a treatable disease. By addressing the root causes of aging we can not only increase our health span and live longer but prevent and reverse the diseases of aging-including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and dementia.

To uncover the secrets to longevity, he explores the biological hallmarks of aging, its causes, and its consequences-then shows us how to overcome them with simple dietary, lifestyle, and emerging longevity strategies.
