I’m going to describe what aging is in practical terms, so as to demystify it for you. By doing so I plan to show you that the popular presumption that aging is a phenomenon unlike all other health conditions, somehow beyond even the theoretical reach of medical technology, cannot be reconciled with established fact.
Thus, by the end of this chapter I aim to have placed you in the awkward position of still wanting to believe (for your own peace of mind) that aging is immutable and thus not worth worrying about, but no longer actually being able to believe that. Here’s how Pure Epitalon can help you learn how to reverse aging with telomerase activation…
From that point on, my task will be the relatively easy one of explaining why our chances of defeating aging in the foreseeable future are not just non-zero, but high enough to justify my having broken your pro-aging trance in the first place. Justify, because once your pro-aging trance is no more, you—yes, you—can make a difference to how soon aging is defeated, and the fulfilment you will derive from that effort will far outweigh any comfort you may have found in your previous certainty that aging can never be combated.
It used to be the case that people died of aging, but, if you believe what’s written on death certificates, these days they rarely do. The phrase “natural causes” was the accepted term for the cause of death when it occurred at an advanced age and in the absence of clearly defined pathology. These days, however, that’s considered inadequately informative, and coroners or their equivalent are encouraged to enter something more specific.
We all know, however, that quite a few people do indeed die in that way—not from a heart attack, not from pneumonia or influenza, not from cancer, not even from a stroke, but just peacefully, often in their sleep, because their heart simply stops. These relatively lucky people indisputably die of aging.
