Description

We all know that we age- but do you know exactly how, and why? And do you wonder what you can do- whatever your age- to slow the process so you can live well, for longer? This book comprehensively answers these questions. Medical doctor and polymath scientist Kris Verburgh illuminates the biological mechanisms that make our bodies susceptible to heart attacks, strokes, dementia, diabetes, and other aging-related diseases. We learn about the crucial role of poorly functioning mitochondria, shortened telomeres, proteins and carbohydrates, and more. Having explained the aging process at work, Dr. Verburgh then provides the tools we need to slow it down: his scientifically backed Longevity Staircase. This simple yet innovative step-by-step method offers better health and a longer life span through nutrition- currently our best defense in the fight against aging and disease. And with each passing day, advances in biotechnology- once the stuff of science fiction- are emerging as part of the longevity code. Dr. Ve

Professional reviews

"Narrator Pete Cross charms listeners with a combination of self-confidence and humble respect for his audience. His reactions to the startling information in this audiobook bring narrator and listeners together in a state of wonder about the potential to live much longer than is currently expected. The author says that evolution did not program us to live much past our 20s because our ancestors died at a young age from predators and infections. But here he shows how we can delay death from common causes like heart disease and cancer, and avoid dementia and the other ailments that make late life so intolerable. It's inspiring evidence that lifestyle changes plus the latest medical advances (stem cells, designer vaccines, genetic tinkering) will allow us to enjoy life well past 100.
