Summary

Quickly and easily—find anti-aging and health strategies on the Internet

Even the most sophisticated Web surfer can become frustrated searching for specific health information on the Internet. The Internet Guide to Anti-Aging and Longevity tackles this problem by providing a comprehensive compilation of annotated links on health, aging issues, and longevity. This easy-to-use reference gives health professionals, researchers, or anyone looking for health and aging-related information a full-range listing of Web sites relating to anti-aging and health-related issues, including those with information on disease, longevity research, and experimental health approaches.

Beyond the actual listing of Web sites, the Internet Guide to Anti-Aging and Longevity also provides complete and clear explanations of Web addresses; instruction on evaluating Web content; using search engines and search directories, discussion groups, Web forums, and blogs; and instruction on using the ’invisible Web’—content not easily accessed through regular search engines. The guide includes screen captures, a glossary of health and Web terms you may encounter, a table of site types and geographic suffixes, a list of helpful health organizations, and a bibliography.

The Internet Guide to Anti-Aging and Longevity lists Web sites according to the different types of information you may be searching for, including:
  • general health
  • aging and seniors
  • anti-aging and longevity
  • diseases and conditions of aging
  • conditions that have an effect on longevity
  • experimental/futuristic approaches
  • research on aging
  • institutes, clinics, organizations, and societies
  • publications
  • statistics

The Internet Guide to Anti-Aging and Longevity is a thorough, one-stop reference for health professionals; health educators; public, academic, health sciences, or special librarians; or anyone interested in learning how to find the information to stay young and vital.
