Abstract:

"'Why we age' explains the biology of aging in an all inclusive way for the first time. ... 'Why we age is a scientifically based explanation of the cellular mechanisms underlying aging to which the author has contributed some significant research. In Part A, Dr Ford explains how the aging processing involves cell division ... In Part B, Dr Ford looks at populations of long-lived people and the world rates of common age-related diseases and cancers. ... Part C is a more general guide to living a healthy lifestyle that accommodates everything that is learnt from Parts A and B plus more. In this book as well as finding a comprehensive (new) explanation for how aging progresses, as in Dr Ford's previous books, you will receive practical and easily adopted advice on how to increase wellbeing while you minimize the effects of aging."--Back cover.
