Thank you for your providing me with importain information. I will read the book you
recommend me. I am very intereted in the neuroendocrine theory of aging. If the cause of
aging exits, it must be a everyday one like plasma glucose. We might not find the cause
because it's so close to us. 'Even normal' level of plasma glucose do us harm in a long
time by producing advanced glycation end products which cause cross links between various
biomoleculs like proteins and DNA. If such a deleterious effect occurs in regulatory units
like hypothalamus, the outcome will be catastrophic!
