Why many of us will live past 100--and enjoy our extra years. In Stopping the Clock
, two pioneers of anti-aging medicine show how we can start now to regain energy and vitality, halt or reverse damage to our bodies, and avoid the diseases--heart attack, arthritis, cancer, diabetes--that do most to reduce current life expectancy.

The key anti-aging hormones: Melatonin, DHEA, and human growth hormone, how to take them and precautions to use.
