As an attempt to stimulate some activity in this group (and save it from
reaping) I pose the following question:
In the book Modern Biological Theories of Aging (eds. Warner, Butler, Sprott
and Schneider, New York: Raven Press, 1987), the authors survey the then
current status of some of the main theories of aging, including:
developmentally programmed aging, free-radical damage, error catastrophe,
DNA damage and repair, and organ systems as pacemakers of aging.
I am not a professional in this field, but rather an interested student.
Would anyone like to post their views on the current status of any of these
