Sample Insights:

1) Natural selection favors genes that help you pass on your genes by reproducing, not genes that make you live longer. This is why we age.

2) Yet the human body, though it’s far from perfect, carries a survival mechanism that allows it to stay alive for decades past the age of reproduction. Given all the odds stacked against us, it’s a wonder we survive to reach our reproductive years, let alone reach the age of 80.
