A book that caught my eye recently is You: Staying Young (2007) by Drs. Oz and Roizen. This book takes a close, if not hilarious look at the aging processes in your body. It likens the body to a city with highways, buildings, utilities, etc. Then it discusses the causes for breakdown of the various systems. Each breakdown, by itself, may not necessarily be dangerous; but if several breakdowns start occurring at once, conditions may be right to speed up aging and even cause death. Your immune system seems to be the key to the whole process since your body starts producing fewer antibodies as you grow older. That's because we experience a lot of infection at an early age, and build up immunity to many diseases, so our body produces fewer antibodies as we age. The doctors say it's never too late to slow down the aging process, and focus on diet, exercise and mental acuity to keep you young "internally", regardless of your true physical age. It's very easy to read since the authors avoid a lot of technical jargon. The diagrams are entertaining. There's a slight resemblance to the 'dummies' book format. You're never too young (or old) to learn about age reversal!
