    DescriptionPresents and discusses the hypothesis that the rate of accumulation of spontaneous mutations in mitochondrial DNA is the principal determinant of the rate of human aging. Offers background material, describes development of the theory and recent advances, examines potential predictions, and discusses the medium-term potential, contingent of the correctness of the hypothesis, for the development of therapies which would greatly increase the healthy human lifespan. The author is affiliated with the department of genetics at the University of Cambridge. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
