New Book by Jean Hébert

Want to know how we will reverse aging? Jean Hébert, Professor of Neuroscience and Genetics, thinks he has the answer. In his new book, Replacing Aging, which was just published and available on Amazon, Hébert outlines the progress made by regenerative medicine in replacing many (and soon all) parts of the body with lab grown cells, tissues, and organs.

When applied to the whole body, these replacements would reverse all forms of age related damage. Even for the brain, Hébert argues, progressive replacements over the course of a decade or two could be used to reverse the damage caused by time and reset the clock to zero.
