Description

Dramatic increases in life-expectancy are shaking the structure of societies around the world and changing our ideas of life and death. But despite the successes that allow countless lives to be lived to the full, which might have been cut short by early death, the future is uncertain. Predictions range from doom-laden images of economic and social disaster to fantasies of technological fixes for the problems of ageing. To understand what is happening we have to harness science. Why and how do we age? Where will the lifespan increase end? Why does ageing make us frail and increasingly vulnerable to disease? Can we slow or even stop the clock?show more
