The reality of our aging touches all of us, and when beginning to explore this topic as mentioned in the first blog in this series, it has many different aspects: Personal, family, social, economic and scientific.
For instance, who is it that ages? Are our mental and physical aging different phenomena? What are the social, economic and environmental costs of our living longer? And so on.
One of the most aggressive proponents of dealing with aging and not simply accepting it as the way it is, is Dr. Aubery de Grey.
In his fascinating book called Ending Aging, he explains how his thinking process shifted on the often complex subject of biological aging. So, rather than only focusing on understanding the metabolic process which creates our aging, what if we sought to understand and to address the damage which aging causes to our bodies.
This paradigm shift in thinking, which moves away from the seemingly endless complexity of the underlying biological processes, to the relatively simpler issues of damage management is explained in detail in his book.
Running alongside this approach is also the concept that addressing the aging issue is not only about adding digits to our total age. It is also concerned with reversing the side effects of aging, so we live healthier and active lives for longer.
