The concept of healthspan – the number of years that we enjoy optimum health – has come a long way, in recent years. In fact, Dr. Nir Barzilai, founding director of the Institute for Aging Research at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, believes we are “ushering in a future where the norm will be for people to be healthy, active and mentally sharp, during the last quarter of their lives.” In his new book, Age Later: Healthspan, Life Span, and the New Science of Longevity, he argues that aging can be “targeted, improved and even cured,” and that it should be thought of as not “as a certainty but as a phenomenon.” In this LLAMA podcast episode, with Peter Bowes, Dr Barzilai, discusses his life’s work studying some of the world’s super agers, people who are enjoying active and productive lives well into their nineties and beyond.
