Aging is a puzzle to solve.
This process is traditionally studied in a couple of biological models
like fruit flies, worms and mice. What all these species have in common
is their fast aging. This is excellent for lab budgets. It is a great
short-term strategy. Who has time to study species that live for
But lifespan differences among species are magnitudes of order larger
than any lifespan variation achieved in the lab. This is the reason for
which I studied countless information resources in an attempt to gather
highly specialized research into one easy-to-follow book. I wanted to
see the forest among the trees. I wanted to expose the aging gap between
species in an easy-to-follow and logical sequence. This book is my
attempt at doing just that.
What are the mechanisms underlying the aging gap between species? I
intentionally chose to write the answer to this question in plain
English. Aging research is too important to hide it behind the closed
doors of formal scientific jargon. This book could not have existed if
green tea, libraries and the Internet were not invented. The amount of
data I had to browse in order to keep the essential patterns is huge.
Yet this book is not exhaustive. This is not a dry academic textbook. I
tried to instill life in a topic that is hugely important for the
extension of human lifespan. Only you can decide if I achieved this.
