Why We Age - Solving the Puzzle of Aging

After gaining my PhD in Genetics, I worked as a Research Scientist for 25 years, undertaking research and solving genetic problems. However I soon found that as well as writing scientific articles, I greatly enjoyed giving talks and writing books about health science for intelligent lay audiences. 


Unlike many 'health books' everything I write has been supported by extensive laboratory data and published research findings. Wherever possible I write without using big words and jargon but sometimes it is necessary to include specific terms (such as 'telomeres') in order to be precise and accurate. However I believe that any intelligent person can enjoy reading the books —from doctors and health practitioners to lay people. 


If you are interested in health-related topics and you want to read the facts from someone who isn't trying to sell you anything else, then you are likely to enjoy reading my books. They are not just 'more of the same'.

I have just completed a new book called Why We Age – Solving the Puzzle of Aging. In this book, I put forward a new concept of aging that explains the overall biology of aging. I also identify the real causes of ten of the most common age-related diseases, which you will find are not quite as we've been told!


The first section (which is a little more difficult than the rest of the book) gives an overview of the mechanism of aging. I have previously published most of this in scientific journals and this is a more holistic version. The book Why We Age aims to reach a wider audience and you don’t need to have any specialized knowledge to understand it. But the book also goes beyond the biology to look at how the advice we receive on 'lifestyle' actually relates to world statistics. This reveals fascinating information - copper piping and over-heating from air-conditioning are each implicated as causes of some common illnesses and vitamin K2 and Maple Syrup provide some solutions. 


I learnt such a lot writing Why We Age that I wanted to share it with people who wanted to know more about the Biology of Aging and those who were more interested in what they needed to do to improve their own health. Of course it's best to know it all but on Amazon, as well as finding Why We Age you will find two smaller books and kindle e-books for each section. The first is called A-Z of Aging and the second is called World Facts and your Health.


Why We Age gives a truthful insight into health and growing old, based on years of international scientific study. It is also very easy to understand. If you want to learn more, buy my book.
