Past and Future,
This review is from: Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever (Hardcover)
The author presents an interesting, futuristic vision of the medicine, its influence at our health, and ultimately, at our longevity. It is an interesting, easily understandable read with a lot of information from the fields of genomics, biotechnology and other sciences. The authors present optimistic views on fighting and conquering such modern plagues as cancer, heart diseases, etc. An interesting comparison to the 'Fantastic Voyage...' is the book 'Can We Live 150' by Tombak, with its similar focus on longevity. This one, however, relies on age old remedies adapted to modern times, rather than on the achievement of the sciences. As it usually is the case, the truth is probably buried somewhere in between.
