Does Aging Stop? reveals the most paradoxical finding of recent aging research: the cessation of demographic aging. The authors show that aging stops at the level of the individual organism, and explain why evolution allows this. The implications of this counter-intuitive conclusion are profound, and aging research now needs to accept three uncomfortable truths. First, aging is not a cumulative physiological process. Second, the fundamental theory that is required to explain, manipulate, and probe the phenomena of aging comes from evolutionary biology. Third, strong-inference experimental strategies for aging must be founded in evolutionary research, not cell or molecular biology. The result of fifteen years of research bringing together new applications of evolutionary theory, new models for demography, and massive experimentation, Does Aging Stop? advances an entirely new foundation for the scientific study of aging.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"As an attempt to justify the existence of plateaus as direct outcomes of natural selection, the book is as good as it gets. The authors do a thorough job of presenting their ideas, along with the models and data they believe back these ideas up." -- Thomas B. L. Kirkwood, Institute for Ageing & Health, Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
