The Sheekey Science Show on Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Recently on Lifespan.io, we reported the rather overhyped findings of a study that presented hyperbaric oxygen therapy as an effective way to reverse human aging. The Sheekey Science Show offers its own explanation on this study and the reactions of multiple media publications to it.

Certainly, there is evidence that there is a bacterial element in some cases of Alzheimer's disease, and a new study further reinforces this link. The Gut MicrobiomeThe gut microbiome is a complex and ever-changing...

On November 25th, Dr. Aubrey de Grey from SENS Research Foundation gave a talk that be began with his usual discussion, with which the community is very familiar, about what aging is and...
Science to Save the World on Sleep and Alzheimer's
On this episode of Science to Save the World, Lifespan.io's general science show, we examine Alzheimer’s disease and how some recent studies have shown a direct correlation between poor sleep and the build-up of amyloid plaques, which are a well-known indicator of this notorious diesase.
Death clock
A new study published in the Journals of Gerontology has shown that the epigenetic clock GrimAge is a strong predictor of the effects of aging, particularly all-cause mortality: the likelihood of dying from any cause. Did previous clocks use the wrong target? As the researchers explain, the first-generation epigenetic clocks of Drs. Horvath (who contributed...
