The objective of antiaging medicine is not to increase longevity but eventually to maintain adeguate quality of life throughout the entire lifespan of a person. Modern medicine has focused on curing acute diseases by applying a specialistic and selective approach. It succeeded in many field and contributed at least to some extent to the increase in average lifespan but it has not been effective enough in reducing the incidence of chronic diseases caused by the degenerative processes of the body through the prescription of personalized preventive programs. Today the scientific and methodological knowledge is sufficient to kick off this preventive approach while science will continue to offer us new and more sophisticated diagnostic and therapeutic tools. Remaining passively anchored to old ideas and approaches is anenormous risk not only for the health of single individuals for the one of the entire society.
Keywords: Antiaging medicine, health, prevention, degenerative diseases, aging.
