Anti-Ageing Trope Promoting Ageism

Here, on the cover of the April 30 issue of New Scientist, the story "How to Grow Younger" features a young lass reaching into the pond at her reflected image, not as a female Narcissus, but as a rescuer of her future, aging self. Oh, the tragedy! Grow younger! Turn back the clock! Don't miss the other story listed: "Are Pet Dogs An Invasive Species?" Who knew?

The title of the article in the magazine: "Growing younger: Radical insights into ageing could help us reverse it

"New insight into how we age suggests it may be driven by a failure to switch off the forces that build our bodies. If true, it could lead to a deeper understanding of ageing – and the possibility of slowing it."
