Founder of the Institute for Aging Research at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and one of the leading pioneers of longevity research, Dr. Nir Barzilai's life's work is tackling the challenges of aging to delay and prevent the onset of all age-related diseases including "the big four" diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer's.
One of Dr. Barzilai's most fascinating studies features volunteers that include 750 SuperAgers--individuals who maintain active lives well into their nineties and even beyond--and, more importantly, who reached that ripe old age never having experienced cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, or cognitive decline.
In Age Later, Dr. Barzilai reveals the secrets his team has unlocked about SuperAgers and the scientific discoveries that show we can mimic some of their natural resistance to the aging process. This eye-opening and inspirational book will help you think of aging not as a certainty, but as a phenomenon--like many other diseases and misfortunes--that can be targeted, improved, and even cured.
