Summary
Let's face it: almost everyone fears growing older. We worry about losing our looks, our health, our jobs, our self-esteem - and being supplanted in work and love by younger people. It feels like the natural, inevitable consequence of the passing years, but what if it's not? What if nearly everything that we think of as the 'natural' process of aging is anything but?
