Time of Our Lives: The Science of Human Aging
Tom Kirkwood (au). A demographic revolution is underway, with the number of people living into extreme old age increasing dramatically. By the year 2050 one in five of the world’s population will be 65 or older. Here Kirkwood overturns the belief that aging is either necessary or inevitable -- it isn’t. We age because our genes, evolving at a time when life was “nasty, brutish, & short,” placed little priority on the long-term maintenance of our bodies. Genome research can help us devise ways to target the root causes of aging & of age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s & osteoporosis. Explains how aging occurs, & answers fundamental questions. Considers the possibility that humans will someday have greatly extended life spans or even be free from senescence altogether.
