The report examines the relationships between aging and exposure to environmental agents (including natural and man-made agents, as well as life-style factors). Several relationships were considered--the impact of intermittent or lifelong exposure to environmental agents on the rate of aging, the impacts of lifelong exposure on health status when one reaches more advanced age, and the special response of the aged compared with that of the young when exposed to environmental agents. The report gathers in one document the pertinent data that do exist, examines them for clues and directions for future research, and seeks some theoretical and practical frameworks for addressing the issue, and suggests a course of research.
