Aging has nearly universal features in humans and other organisms. Aging causes an exponentially rising risk of death and diseases that slows at very old ages. I’ll describe experiments and a theory of aging that can explain several nearly universal patterns in terms of fundamental principles. I’ll discuss current approaches to slow aging and increase health at old age.
