I really enjoyed reading “Why We Age – Solving the Puzzle of Aging” by Dr Judy Ford. Even though I do not have a background in Science, the unfamiliar terms in Section 1 were so clearly and promptly explained in the text that I felt confident to continue reading and understand the solution to the puzzle. The insights promised in Part B possibly causing various disease across the world were thought provoking and the recommendations in Part C can be trusted.


In this book, Dr Judy Ford (the academic) becomes Judy Ford (just another woman going through the aging process) who comforts and encourages us all to be more positive and proactive in caring for our own aging bodies and minds. Judy’s final words of advice clearly come from her sound empirical evidence and respected research, as much as her personal life experience, keen sense of humor and a refreshing “good old dose of common sense”.
