About the Author
In 2010, Jeff T. Bowles began a series of ebook bestsellers to publish health issues that deal with the problem of healing and aging from an evolutionary perspective. By joining the simple logic of evolution with a large number of diverse facts as well as the results of his 25-year-old private research, Jeff was able to demonstrate a wide range of new, simple and very effective ways to relieve many chronic diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, asthma or age-related diseases such as Alzheimer's and ALS. Jeff was the first person who could show in a rat experiment (1997-2001) that rats whose water intake is restricted, live significantly longer (even longer than restricting food). 1998 in the journal Medical Hypotheses his article "The Evolution of Aging - A New Approach to an Old Problem of Biology" was published. Later he published there two other articles. His hypothesis that the suppression of a certain hormone can stop the progression of Alzheimer's disease, resulted in the founding of the company Voyager Pharmaceuticals, which showed in a 50-Million dollar project, that the suppression of the hormone LH in women actually prevented the progression of Alzheimer's disease. In his proto-book about ALS he predicted in January of 2013 that progesterone would be the first effective treatment for ALS ever. Six months later some Korean researchers showed that progesterone dramtically extended the lives of male mice in a mouse model of ALS-the equivalent of 17 human years whereas most ALS patients only survive 2 to 4 years.

Book on high doses of vitamin D, he has reached new grounds in this explanation of aging and evolution.
I have read the author's earlier publications on aging but he really has uncovered many new and exciting theories in this publication.
More scientists should be examining his work and maybe we can slow the aging process.
Jeff's new book is about aging, or a way to prevent aging. In the sci-fi novel world we call this immortality! Is it possible? According to Jeff it is. He lays his case out by taking Evolution down! (Jeff, I'm a Christian, Dah! The Big Bang Theory will never make sense!) But Jeff thinks it scientifically wrong based on the group selection as well as the selfish gene theory.
So what am I talking about? I'm not really sure, but here's my Evolution for Dummies perspective:
Selfish Gene Theory: Some theory that was "invented" by Richard Dawkins and states-This way of looking at selection, from the perspective of the gene, gets extended to such emergent behaviors as kin selection, eusociality, and altruism, by way of the fact that an allele not only gets propogated through the gene pool by helping the immediate organism survive, it also helps other copies of itself survive in other members of its species. Meaning, altruistic behavior is a natural outcome of selection, even if it is bad for the individual organism, because the genes themselves are acting selfishly by protecting other copies of themselves. Of course most genes don’t directly influence behavior, meaning that most genes are, at best, indirectly selfish – but in the case of parochial altruism (within a family or other inbreeding group), most organisms benefiting from altruism likely carry copies of the same non-behavioral genes anyway.
Whenever the author makes a point, he provides a large number of visual examples
I have no doubt that this is the missing half of the theory of evolution.
This book will likely be a textbook for evolution classes in the future.
