Abstract

The aging theories are a very high number, and also many scientists proposed different ways of dividing and categorizing them. As a major subset of these theories, the genetic theories of aging include three main concepts: (1) the genetics of aging can be interpreted in the light of the evolutionary theories; (2) the genetics of aging and longevity can be informative if ecological and anthropological views are considered; (3) the genetics components underpin all the theories of aging even if not specifically stated.
