Synopsis

From acclaimed journalist Bill Gifford comes a roaring journey into the world of anti-aging science--a place filled with extraordinary breakthroughs and dangerous deceptions. SPRING CHICKEN: How To Stay Young Forever (Or Die Trying)SPRING CHICKEN is a full-throttle, high-energy ride through the latest research, popular mythology, and ancient wisdom on aging and lifespan--from wrinkles and baldness down to the innermost workings of cells--that examines how human beings might be able to live longer, healthier lives. In his funny, self-deprecating voice, veteran reporter Bill Gifford takes readers into cutting-edge labs where scientists are working to achieve miraculous breakthroughs, like purging "senescent" cells from mice to reverse the effects of aging. He'll reveal what has happened with resveratrol, the "red wine pill" that made headlines a few years ago, how your fat tissue is trying to kill you, and how in the near future, doctors will be able to prescribe life-extending medications uniquely tailored for each individual. Gifford separates the wheat from the chaff as he exposes hoaxes and scams foisted upon an aging society, and arms readers with the best possible advice on what to do, what not to do, and what life-changing treatments may be right around the corner. A mixture of deep reporting, fascinating science, and prescriptive takeaway, this is a brilliant examination of a universal obsession: what can be done about getting old?
