Aging is an Enemy

Aging is an enemy. It saps our strength and ability to enjoy life, cripples us, and eventually kills us. Tens of millions die from age-related conditions each and every year. Comparatively few people know that degenerative aging can be modestly slowed with diet and lifestyle choices, as is the case for many medical conditions. Comparatively few people are aware of serious scientific efforts, presently underway, aimed at understanding and intervening in the aging process - in order to one day reverse its effects.

One day, scientists will find a way to defeat aging. We would like this breakthough to happen while we are still alive and in good health to benefit from it. How will we achieve this goal?
