    Breakthroughs for the Decade with Peter Diamandis and Jim Mellon

    Jim Mellon, co-founder of The Longevity Forum interview Peter Diamandis, Founder of the XPRIZE Foundation on breakthroughs for the next decade.
    There is no greater gift on the planet than adding healthy years to one's life. Our inability to live extraordinarily long is either a software problem or a hardware problem. Breakthroughs in diagnostics will help people understand early signs of ageing so we can catch disease from the beginning. In addition, therapeutics are evolving that may help with long term health.

    Ageism in History with Pat Thane and Andrew J Scott

    Ageism in History with Pat Thane and Andrew J Scott

    Pat Thane, visiting Professor in History at Birkbeck, University of London chats with Andrew J Scott, co-founder of The Longevity Forum & Professor at LBS on how an ageing society has changed throughout history.
    The narrative on an ageing society should not be negative. One of the greatest achievements of the 20th century is longer lives. Grandparents and great grandparents are spending more time with their families than ever before in history. People used to age faster partially due to poverty but today humans into their 80's are remaining youthful and active. We must value this group as a society - the older age bracket is becoming the biggest demographic on the planet.

    Business of Longevity with Dafina Grapci and Andrew J Scott

    Dafina Grapci and Andrew J Scott, co-founders of The Longevity Forum discuss the new course at LBS, Business of Longevity. A healthy and long lifespan is not just a personal endeavor but is beneficial for society. Ageing well for one year is worth 38 trillion US dollars in the economy. If we are going to be healthy when we are old, we need to start earlier. People of all ages need to consider the many aspects of longevity. Longevity is not just health, it also involves skills, engagement and relationships.

    Ageing in Animals with Andrew Steele and Steve Austad

    Ageing in Animals with Andrew Steele and Steve Austad

    Ageing whether in animals or humans is not a fixed process. Looking at American possums on islands versus the mainland, they are ageing at different speeds leading to the conclusion that safer environments increase longevity. With animal insights guiding medical research, we may see humans live up to 150 years old. Medical progress has been growing tremendously including blood rejuvenation which may lead to additional years of life that we never thought would be possible.

    Mission Menopause with Louise Newson and Claire Mellon

    Mission Menopause with Louise Newson and Claire Mellon

    Claire Mellon, Gynecologist at Miss Claire Mellon and Associates interviews Louise Newson, co-founder of the Newson Health Menopause and Wellbeing Centre on how menopause it changing with longevity.
    We have the common goal of preventing problems rather than treating them. Women loose their hormones in menopause which can speed up the ageing process. HRT had a bad reputation in the past but has been modernized to be a viable treatment for menopause to prevent inflammation which leads to later in life illnesses. Hormones could be the way forward for improving health.
