«Youth would be an ideal state if it came a little later in life.» — Herbert Asquith
The question ‘How to stop the aging processes?’ has engaged the human mind since inception of recorded civilization. Man has tried to find solution in mythology, religion, yoga and of late in scientific breakthrough.
During the last century medical science managed to double the life span of human species mainly due to prevention of diseases. Will the trend continue in future? Will we manage to double the human life expectancy again in this century? Few renowned scientists are already saying that babies have been born who will live beyond 150 years. Is there any truth in these predictions?
Anti-aging is an important issue because it has huge implications for us as individuals and society as a whole. There is no doubt that we will live much longer than our fore fathers.
If we are going to live longer then it important for us to understand how the aging process works within our bodies. How it affects our mind and bodies? We don’t have to grow old with health problems and memory loss. By understanding the aging process we can increase our youth span and live a healthy and productive life.
According to the theories, aging is a complex interaction of genetics, chemistry, psychology and behaviour. This book examines facts from fiction as to what is happening in the field of anti-aging.
