First Person One on One: Andrew Steele

    Aging—not cancer, not heart disease—is the world’s leading cause of death and suffering. We think our genes and behavior predict whether we will get skin cancer or have a stroke. We accept it as inevitable that as we advance in years, our bodies and minds begin to deteriorate as we are felled by dementia or disease. But we never really ask: is aging necessary? that is the question Andrew Steele sets out to answer in his new book, Ageless; The News Science of Getting Older without Getting Old.
