Why We Age (Hardcover) by Dr Judy Ford


‘Why We Age’ explains the biological mechanims that underlie ageing. It is written for intelligent lay people and academics and allows the reader to understand why and how ‘telomeres’ are reduced in length whenever cells divide. The reader learns that this ultimately causes age-related inflammation and critical changes in fat metabolism but also learns what can be done to minimise the negative effects.

This book offers new knowledge. Adding the ‘Why We Age Workbook’ helps the reader make the necessary changes in lifestyle that are recommended in the book.
