JOAO PEDRO SAID: "...One of the major failures of gerontology has been in
cornering where are the causes of aging located...."

CYMM SAYS: That's not strictly true, Joao. If it's one thing that
gerontology has taught us is that ageing - and the diseases of ageing - are
MULTIFACTORIAL in aetiology.

If you're looking for one major "cause" and one major "cure" for "ageing"
you'll never find it. The "failure" lies in the interrelating of the
multiple factors to produce a very useful medical model.

But that situation comes closer to resolution with each passing day.
