Why We Age - Solving the Puzzle of Aging
by Dr Judy Ford.
In this book, Geneticist Dr Judy Ford puts forward a new concept of aging that explains the overall biology of aging. Dr Ford also identifies the real causes of ten of the most common age-related diseases, which you will find are not quite as we've been told!
The first section (which is a little more difficult than the rest of the book) gives an overview of the mechanism of aging. Dr Ford has previously published most of this in scientific journals and this is a more holistic version. The book Why We Age aims to reach a wider audience and you don’t need to have any specialised knowledge to understand it. But the book also goes beyond the biology to look at how the advice we receive on 'lifestyle' actually relates to world statistics. This reveals fascinating information - copper piping and over-heating from air-conditioning are each implicated as causes of some common illnesses and vitamin K2 and Maple Syrup provide some solutions.
Why We Age gives a truthful insight into health and growing old, based on years of international scientific study. Please note this book is quite "technical" in terminology.
