Greasing Aging's Downward Slide

Counteracting the midlife shift in fat processing might improve seniors' health--and forestall decrepitude

Nancy Ross-Flanigan;2003/41/ns6

Researchers are exploring why the balance shifts for the worse around midlife and are searching for therapies to counteract that tendency. Along the way, they're uncovering hints that lipids influence mental agility and longevity as well.
