This book focuses on the three most important aspects of ageing research: nutrition, physical exercise and epigenetics. The contributors discuss ways that age-related epigenetic imprints such as DNA methylation and histone acetylation are modified by these two interventions. The emphasis on epigenetics helps to illuminate the underlying mechanisms of anti-ageing interventions, as ageing and disease are predominately epigenetic phenomena.

Among the highlights are chapter-length discussion of such topics as: how anti-inflammatory action of calorie restriction underlies the retardation of ageing and age-related diseases (Chapter 3); epigenetic modification of gene expression by exercise (Chapter 5); the role of functional foods and their bioactive components in bone health (Chapter 8); and an account of the first decade of a study of calorie restriction in nonhuman primates, conducted by the National Institute on Ageing.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This volume in the Healthy Ageing and Longevity series is a compilation of the current research highlighting the benefits of nutrition and physical activity on components of health, primarily aging. ... It is appropriate for those who have a very good understanding of current research and methodology. ... This book certainly has a place for researchers who wish to expand upon the growing animal model evidence of the potential benefits of nutrition and physical activity on aging." (Amy Hess-Fischl, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2015)
