About the issue:
In this issue of Asian Scientist Magazine, we delve into the latest science and technology of aging, a topic of particular importance to rapidly greying Asia. With advancements in healthcare, people are living longer than before.
In our special feature (Turning The Hourglass Sideways, p. 16), we take a closer look at six promising ways to slow down the inevitable march of time. Although there is still much to learn about the aging process and how we can age gracefully, we’ve included two feature stories on encouraging developments in healthcare: anti-aging pills in clinical trials (Longevity In A Bottle, p. 30) and a potential blood test for Alzheimer’s disease (Searching For Signs, Not Symptoms, p. 26).
