PROVO, Utah — June 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Released today, The Aging Myth is an explosive new book by noted scientist and anti-aging researcher Joseph Chang, Ph.D., that reveals how new genetic discoveries are challenging traditional anti-aging philosophies and helping people live younger longer. In The Aging Myth, Dr. Chang uses a conversational and accessible style to dispel common myths about aging and explains some of the latest groundbreaking research in the field, including:
- Why he believes aging is not an issue of whether or not you have “good genes” – it’s about how your genes function.
- How new science may someday allow us to “die healthy” and maintain a youthful quality of life until our last living day.
- Why some people look much younger than their actual age would suggest.
“I was troubled when my father passed away after a long time of suffering from chronic illness and deterioration,” said Dr. Chang. “I believe there has to be a way to help people die healthy so that while they are alive, they are truly living. I believe that most people are born with good genes, but it’s a matter of how these genes are expressed that determines how well we age.”
Dr. Chang explains how, using gene expression science to decode aging processes, he and collaborators have been able to identify, target and reset important aging-related genes to a more youthful state.
“It has been said that as much as people fear death, they fear the ravages of aging even more,” explains Dr. Chang. “The fact is, everyone eventually dies, but some are still youthful when they die.”
The Aging Myth from Aylesbury Publishing is now available in major bookstores or online from favorite book retailers. Author Dr. Chang will also be on tour with The Aging Myth in an area near you in the coming months. More information is available at www.agingmyth.com.
