Selling the Fountain of Youth: How the Anti-Aging Industry Made a Disease Out of Getting Old--And Made Billions comes from an author who spent more than ten years as a science reporter at BusinessWeek, and who examines the entire nature of anti-aging health care, from internet marketers behind the rise of acai berries to non-regulated compounds produced in pharmacies. Fads, trends, international marketing, and legitimate players as well are considered in a thorough investigation of the economic and cultural impact of anti-aging medicine which is key to health and social issues collections alike, as well as to many a general lending library.
