Lifespan & Healthspan: The Science(s) of Healthier Aging, From Cells to Centenarians

Paul and Howard talk about healthy aging, from cell death, to diet, to centenarians, and exercise in-between. Financial geek that he is, Paul sneaks in a little riff about pension fraud too. There is a fairly crap transcript here.

  • Cellular housekeeping and whether it can be catalyzed
  • Diets — good, bad, and simple
  • What we can learn from centenarian studies, and where are their flaws
