Description

Everything that lives will die: that's the fundamental fact of life. But not everyone dies at the same age: people vary wildly in their patterns of aging and their life spans... and that variation is nothing compared to what's found in other animal and plant species. What accounts for these variations-- and what can we learn from them that might help us understand, or better manage, our own aging?
