Academic review style[edit]

This article has the tone and style of an academic review, not an encyclopedia article. For example "Descriptions of decrements in function, characteristic of aging, associated with accumulation of DNA damages, are given later in this article." Having a Conclusions section is also more in the style of a review article than an encyclopedia article.Trashbird1240 (talk) 18:58, 6 March 2013 (UTC)


Not to mention that citations as in here "Here, we mention only some recent studies involving rodents plus one human study. Rutten et al. (2007) showed that single-strand breaks accumulate in the mouse brain with age. Sen et al. (2007) showed that DNA damages which block the polymerase chain reaction in rat brain accumulate with age.", without any link to the corresponding journal article are useless. --174.115.226.233 (talk) 17:40, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

I have found that citations like that often are copypasted directly from articles - and constitute copyviolation... Lova Falk talk 11:11, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
