Aubrey de Grey, the godfather of the longevity movement, has catered his research on how to put the breaks on ageing. Passionate about slowing the ageing process, the biomedical gerontologist and chief science officer co-founded the SENS Research Foundation to help fund research on living a longer life.
Today, de Grey shares ways we can slow ageing. We discuss the definition of ageing, why we're living longer now than those who lived in the 19th century, and how nutrition plays a part in longevity.
We talk about:
What made de Grey want to study ageing
The definition of ageing and why we age
The lifelong process and late-life process
Ways to extend our lives
The history of age longevity and medicine
