Publisher's Summary

DNA is "life's blueprint", encoding our genetic inheritance for health and life expectancy. Throughout life, DNA reproduces and replaces itself continually. In optimal conditions, DNA copies itself, making perfect reproductions. But as people age and their DNA is gradually damaged by the environment, diet, and physical and emotional stress, the DNA begins to reproduce poorly and ultimately stops reproducing completely. The result is disease and aging. In this groundbreaking book, Vincent Giampapa, MD, presents a radical new theory on how we age.

Contrary to current thinking, late-stage research suggests that the body is not irreversibly programmed by a finite number of cell divisions to age and die but rather is built for longevity and self-repair. Moreover, we can regulate which aging genes to "switch off" and which to "switch on", thereby altering how our genes are expressed and influencing how we age, the quality of our health, and how long we live.

In Breaking the Aging Code, you will learn not only about these amazing scientific breakthroughs but also about applying this information to your life. From the intimate level of the cell outward to environmental toxins, Dr. Giampapa describes the key components responsible for the breakdown of and damage to DNA. He also explains how you can use diet, nutraceuticals, exercise, and mind-body techniques to control these harmful processes and to optimize a healthy state of DNA.
