We learn why some animal species hardly age at all while others age and die very quickly and about the mechanisms at work that slowly but definitely cause our bodies to age, making us susceptible to heart attack, stroke, cancer, pneumonia, and dementia.
Dr. Verburgh devotes the last third of The Longevity Code to what we can do to slow down the process of aging. He concludes by introducing and assessing the wide range of cutting-edge developments in anti-aging technology, the stuff once only of science fiction: new types of vaccines and the use of mitochondrial DNA, CRISPR proteins, stem cells, and more.

Excellent overview on the science of Longevity
Easy to understand and packed with useful information about diet and lifestyle changes we can make right now to increase our lifespan. The author provides many insights in to the latest (as of 2017) scientific discoveries to reduce/reverse aging, and explores some of the (mostly positive) social, political, economic and environmental impacts of humans living beyond 200 years.
