In this authoritative volume, Dr Park explores the revolutionary idea that disease and ageing in humans all arise from one single source: genetic errors caused by shortening of telomeres, or the sequences of DNA at the ends of our chromosomes. The cutting edge information here shows how we can intervene in the ageing process through various techniques and practices. The book is in depth but not hard to read, and uses all sorts of illustrations and metaphors to make its points. We might not want to live in these bodies forever, but almost all of us would like to live there for quite a bit longer, and in a more healthy condition.
