Aging: Theories and Potential Therapies
The Science of Aging tackles this fascinating subject, from natural processes to technological developments, and describes past and present research on extending the human life span. Different theories about aging and the studies of the fruit fly and housefly, which have provided a basis of knowledge in this field, are presented in a clear and concise manner. The use of hormone therapy is explored as a possible way to reverse the effects of aging, the use of antioxidants is discussed as another area being pursued by scientists seeking to find the key to extending the human life span, and possible side effects and monetary expenses are also examined. This volume presents the full story about the hopes, efforts, progress, and realities of this timeless topic.
