Towards a sociology of "anti-ageing"

Press/Media: Research


Over the last two decades, the term ‘anti-ageing’ has gained considerable currency. There is a huge and burgeoning number of interventions labelled as ‘anti-ageing’ (or the more common Americanised spelling ‘anti-aging’) advertised online. The term is also widely used ‘off line’, with specialist clinics labelled as such together with products found in chemists, supermarkets and other retail outlets. Readers may remember that in 2013 the Australian Crime Commission identified ‘anti-ageing clinics’ as one source for peptides, hormones and performance- and image-enhancing (PIEDs) drugs used by athletes (ACC, 2013).
