Medical doctor and researcher Kris Verburgh is fast emerging as one of the world's leading research authorities on the science of aging. The Longevity Code is Dr. Verburgh's authoritative guide on why and how we age-and on the four most crucial areas we have control over, to slow down, and even reverse, the aging process. We learn why some animal species age hardly 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/or 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.

Interesting mix of the current and future science of aging. Discusses causes and prevention based on research studies' results and then the author speculates where the science might lead in the future.
