Can we really slow aging? That question has driven humanity to some amazing actions through the centuries. That’s because, for most of that time, mankind was certain the answer to anti-aging always lay beyond the horizon.
We had to find the Fountain of Youth, or dine on the Peaches of Immortality, or (better send your daughter out of the room right now) eat a mermaid. Think of all the trouble that could have been avoided if our ancestors had known they needn’t look any further than their own gardens, streams, and farms.
