A startling chronicle by a brilliant young scientist takes us onto the frontiers of the science of aging, and reveals how close we are to an astonishing extension of our life spans and a vastly improved quality of life in our later years.
A startling wake-up call… Writing with the vim of a Bill Bryson and the technical knowledge of a scientist, Steele gives us a chance to grasp what’s at stake ~ Independent
Ageless by Andrew Steele
Ageless is a guide to the biggest issue we all face. Ageing, not cancer, not heart disease, is the world’s leading cause of death and suffering. What would the world be like if we could cure it?
Living disease-free until the age of 100 is achievable within our lifetimes. In prose that is lucid and full of fascinating facts, Ageless introduces us to the cutting-edge research that is paving the way for this revolution. Computational biologist Andrew Steele explains what occurs biologically as we age, as well as practical ways we can slow down the process. He reveals how understanding the scientific implications of ageing could lead to the greatest discovery in the history of civilisation – one that has the potential to improve billions of lives, save trillions of dollars, and transform the human condition.
