    This book takes the crucial step back to challenge how people think about aging. The Aging Syndrome, the core idea in this book, explains the aging process by using three pillars: intrinsic aging, the aging process that no one understands; disuse, both physical and mental; and chronic disease processes, which begin in childhood or sometimes in the womb. Using practical steps and plain language, this volume is a guide for developing a plan for growing older. By presenting a better way to think about aging, it reveals what everyone can do to live a longer life--Excerpted from publisher.
