The first part gives an overview of the complex biological mechanisms of aging and of the consequences of tissue and system aging in humans. The role of genetic and environmental factors that influence the rate of aging in several species is discussed. The second part of this book evaluates the various means, including life styles, behavioral variables, medical interventions and vitamin supplementation, that may slow down the physiological and psychological effects of aging. Biotechnology and gene therapy are also becoming a part of medical interventions to prolong life. This book is aimed at readers with some knowledge of biology and medicine, as well as to a larger audience eager to know more about how to live a healthy, happy and productive life in their old age."@en ;
