Jellyfish Age Backwards

£16.99

Humanity has always been obsessed with the concept of immortality and the secrets to longevity have largely remained a mystery – until scientists begun looking to nature for answers. Molecular biologist Nicklas Brendborg takes us on a journey from farthest reaches of the globe to the most cutting-edge research as he explores what nature has to teach us about aging. We meet jellyfish who display reverse aging; the Greenland shark who is older than America; naked mole-rats and lobsters who are virtually ageless; redwoods that survive thousands of years; and in the soil of Easter Island, the key to eternal youth.

Molecular Biologist Nicklas Brendborg takes us on a journey from the farthest reaches of the globe to the most cutting-edge research to explore everything the natural world and science have to offer on the mystery of aging.

With mind-bending discoveries and physiological gifts that feel closer to magic than reality, Jellyfish Age Backwards will reshape everything you thought you knew about aging – and offer nature’s secrets to unlocking your own longevity.
