Selling the Fountain of Youth

Come to hear Arlene Weintraub, author of “Selling the Fountain of Youth: How the Anti-Aging Industry Made a Disease out of Getting Old and Made Millions”.  Weintraub, who spent more than ten years as a science reporter at Business Week, will tell how the beauty industry has become the anti-aging industry, overrun with steroids, human growth hormone injections, and “bio-identical” hormones—all promoted as “cures” for getting old, and she will reveal the shady practices that run rampant when junk science and dubious marketing meet consumer choice.  BrooklineCAN is sponsoring this free event on Monday, April 11, 6:00-8:00 pm, at the Public Library of Brookline, 361 Washington Street.  Call 617-730-7220 to register.
