Whereas chronic stress has well known harmful effects, recent research shows that intermittent exposure of cells and organisms to mild stress can improve various biological parameters. This book brings together some of the world leaders in this area of research who present a critical analysis of the ongoing research with respect to the effects and mechanisms of action of various types of mild stress. Novel approaches to improving health and longevity are introduced.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The present book is timely written by experts in the subject and presents state-of-art status of research on hormesis and aging. ... is thought provoking and opens an exciting new area for detailed study. It is highly useful for young researchers in biogerontology as well as for the established biogerontologists to analyse their results in the light of hormetic effects. Thus the book is worth reading by not only biogerontologists but by all those who are interested in understanding the hormetic approach for healthy aging." (Mahendra K. Thakur, Biogerontology, Juni, 2008)
