The Bottom Line

We all have to die at some point, but a leading scientist in the field of aging argues that we can double our life expectancy and live healthy, active lives right up till the end.

I. Introduction

David Sinclair has devoted his career in science to researching the phenomenon of aging: Why does it happen, how does it affect the body, and what can be done about it. A professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School and a leading expert on aging and longevity, Sinclair has developed a theory that examines the cellular basis of the aging process.

Sinclair in unequivocal in his assertion that aging is a disease that poses a greater threat to our well-being than any other disease. And he’s equally unequivocal in asserting: “Aging is a disease, and that disease is treatable.”
