About this title

From Library Journal:

Science writer Hallowell reports on the aging process as it affects both the individual and society, with attention to the effect that a large aged population will have on the United States. He notes early signs of aging, like facial lines and receding hairlines, as well as degenerative diseases such as cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer's disease. He reviews gerontological research focusing on nutrition, cytology, and endocrinology; and he lists the risks involved in cosmetic plastic surgery and the benefits of diet and exercise. Hallowell points out that the aged hold an exalted position in some countries, while we segregate our aged in retirement communities. An excellent report on an important subject. Recommended.
