This book offers a broad-ranging assessment of current efforts of the molecular, cellular, hormonal, nutritional and lifestyle strategies being tested and applied by biogerontologists in the search for effective means of intervention, prevention and treatment of age-related diseases, and for achieving healthy old age. Employing a semi-academic style, the book presents data from experimental systems, while focusing primarily on their applications to humans in the prevention and treatment of age-related impairments.
