Erratum: This reference appears in Ageless for the text ‘… deaths … peak around flu season …’. In the book, the reference given is Pera et al., which is a review of the ageing immune system. The actual reference is Nguyen et al.’s analysis of relative timings of flu and cardiovascular deaths in the US. The original, erroneous reference is given below for completeness.
