image of women in 3 age stagesAll animals, including humans, age. However, our understanding of the aging process is very incomplete. Recently, some researchers have even proposed that aging should be considered a disease with the implication that perhaps aging could be cured. In this five part series we will address several questions. What is aging? What is disease? In addition we will examine the critical role that cultural innovations have played as the primary driving force of human evolution and aging.
