Medicine: How we can extend lifespan and live longer and healthier lives
Theodore C. Goldsmith
Aging is a treatable condition! For centuries aging and a particular human lifespan have
been widely thought to be an inescapable and fundamental aspect of human
existence. However, today there is an increasing understanding that aging is
treatable, like a disease, and that therefore anti-aging medicine and
lifespan extension are possible.
Why do we age? Although Darwin’s evolution theory explains
the vast majority of observations concerning the evolved designs of living
organisms including humans, scientists have struggled for more than 160 years
to explain why we age in evolutionary terms. Modern theories of biological
aging are based on relatively minor modifications to Darwin’s ideas about the
nature of the evolution process, and there is still no wide scientific
agreement on any single aging theory. In addition, these theories have
drastically different predictions regarding the treatability of aging and the
nature of the biological mechanisms that cause aging and highly age-related
diseases like cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. Modern thinking
has been greatly affected by relatively recent discoveries especially in the
area of biological inheritance (genetics). This book describes the history
and current status of aging theories and explains why the newest theories are
much more likely to be valid and much more optimistic regarding our ability
to treat aging.
What can we personally do to slow aging? This book explores the increasing evidence
that personal behaviors including diet and exercise can generally delay aging
and age-related diseases. In addition, there is evidence that some
pharmaceutical agents can act to delay aging. Major research efforts are now
underway to exploit these possibilities.
How does anti-aging medicine relate to
current medicine and health care? Current
health care systems as they have evolved for centuries are still largely
based on the idea that aging is an inevitable unchangeable part of life.
However, there are now anti-aging medical practices that can provide guidance
for personal efforts to delay aging including diet, exercise, and applicable
