Item description for The Causes of Aging by A. J. Wickens...
In life, aging is our constant and often unwanted companion that increasingly forces us to confront the unpleasant truth of our own mortality. Aging is first and foremost a biological process and this book is essentially a guide to some of the most important scientific theories that have emerged to explain this process. We all know the effects of aging but it is only through understanding the causes that we can challenge the prevalent idea that aging is an inevitable part of the cycle of life. The scientific understanding of aging offers the only real hope of intervention, which could ultimately lead to an extended, healthy lifespan. Aging is undeniably complex and the science behind it encompasses many separate scientific disciplines. The Causes of Aging teaches only as much basic biology as is needed to allow comprehension of the concepts discussed, making it simple and easy to follow.
