It outlines proposed therapies that could, if fully developed, repair or work around that damage in order to remove its contribution to aging.
Since its publication in English, volunteers have translated Ending Aging into a number of other languages, and a Portuguese edition is now the latest to be published. Scientific translation is particularly challenging, and people who have both the requisite scientific knowledge and are multilingual do not exist in great numbers – so many thanks to the team who persevered to carry out this work.
Some months ago, we announced an initiative by Nicolas Chernavsky and Nina Torres Zanvettor to translate Ending Aging into Portuguese. As of today, the translated book
