Abstract: Manolagas provides a succinct review of the book Apoptosis in Health and Disease. He praises the book for the clarity with which it covers the topics, but he also points out two missing health issues for which regulating apoptosis may prove clinically important: One is the health and regulation of the female reproductive system and the other is the treatment of osteoporosis.
