As part of our ongoing advocacy for aging research and reaching new audiences, LEAF president Keith Comito has appeared on Generation Bold Radio, which is hosted by Adriane Berg.
One focus of the show, among other topics, is on the popular concept of healthy aging. Of course our regular readers know that healthy aging is an oxymoron, though, to be fair, there is plenty of evidence showing the rate and way in which we age are things that we can influence through lifestyle, diet, and other decisions.
Staying in shape, optimizing health and diet with the aim of increasing healthspan, the years of life you spend healthy, is the common ground here. Anyone serious about living a long, healthy life should be doing many of the same things that the Generation Bold audience is doing; after all, doing what we can with the limited tools we have now may allow us to live long enough to benefit from more advanced technologies against aging, which could arrive in the upcoming decades.
There has been an increasing level of interest in healthy aging in recent years, and, hopefully by engaging people interested in “successful aging” with interviews such as this, we may introduce them to the more ambitious goal of ending age-related diseases in order to give us longer and healthier lives.
Adriane is also interested in our the goal of ending aging and, to that end, is directing Targeting Metabesity 2020, a virtual conference happening on October 12-15 and is offering our readers a free registration using the code CODE MT20-LEAF#.
The event includes a number of interesting speakers from the aging research world, including Aubrey de Grey, Nir Barzilai, Laura Deming, Vadim Gladyshev, Steve Horvath, Brian Kennedy, and Morgan Levine. So, if you are still hungry for more research after Ending Age-Related Diseases 2020, which will be hosted by LEAF on August 20-21, then be sure to check out Targeting Metabesity 2020 on October 12-15.
