"Itâ€™s a seemingly undeniable truth that aging is inevitable. But what if everything weâ€™ve been taught to believe about aging is wrong? What if we could choose our lifespan? In this groundbreaking book, Dr. David Sinclair, leading world authority on genetics and longevity, reveals a bold new theory for why we age. As he writes: â€œAging is a disease, and that disease is treatable.â€ This book takes us to the frontlines of research many from Dr. David Sinclairâ€™s own lab at Harvardâ€”that demonstrate how we can slow down, or even reverse, aging. The key is activating newly discovered vitality genes, the descendants of an ancient genetic survival circuit that is both the cause of aging and the key to reversing it."
