Full Description

This study offers the reader a balanced presentation of the different aspects of gerontology. As the field of gerontology has developed in recent years, the evolutionary basis of ageing and the connections between biochemical damage and pathologies are emerging, the central theme being DNA errors, their detection and repair. This reference subdivides the subject into four main categories: ageing as a problem of genes and environment; ageing as a loss of systems precision; ageing as increased disease; and ageing as a repairable defect.
