You're Looking Very Well
Lewis Wolpert, acclaimed scientist and broadcaster, investigates a topic close to all our hearts - why must we age and how should we cope with our physical decline?
We now live longer today than at any time in history. In the UK, there are more people aged over 65 than under 16 and by 2050, over a third of the developed world will be over 60. How should we deal with this phenomenon? What are the scientific reasons for ageing? And can - or should - we prevent it?
Lewis Wolpert, distinguished biologist and octogenarian, explores the scientific background and the implications of our ageing population. In this engaging investigation, he tackles every aspect of the subject from ageism to euthanasia to anti-ageing cream and, through it all, tries to better understand his own ageing. Witty, frank and often inspiring, Lewis Wolpert is the perfect guide to ‘looking very well’.
