Biological Immortality? It might sound like science fiction, but computational biologist and science writer Dr. Andrew Steele joins today’s show to reveal the scientific research that is being conducted within the little known longevity research community that very well may “cure” aging within our lifetime.
In today’s show, Dr. Andrew Steele explains the “one graph” that triggered his fascination with longevity and the years of research that led to his book. He explains why the human body ages. Discusses existing “ageless” animals in nature. The importance of healthspan vs. lifespan. The concept of biological vs. chronological age. The ground breaking research being conducted today and when it may become available to the general public in the future. Whether or not humans can truly live to be “immortal”. The consequences of an ageless world population and why we need to start planning now. What listeners can do today to live longer and the concept of longevity escape velocity.
