No one should have to read during the holidays. That’s why we made you a video! I spoke to our own James Peyer about how he got started in the longevity world, the unique challenges of bringing new anti-aging therapeutics to the public, and how his role as an investor allows him to help projects

Keeping one eye on your calories, and the other on that delicious-looking pumpkin pie? Don’t worry–your Thanksgiving sins probably won’t hurt your longevity as long as you’re fasting sometimes. You can thank your gut bacteria. What do insulin resistance and 17th century Prague have in common? The first rare variant that dramatically increases human lifespan…

Can we “unlock a human’s inner salamander” with stem cell therapies? 3D-printed organs, uploaded brains, and disease-fighting nanobots: just a few of the tools Silicon Valley hopes to put in our anti-aging arsenal. Entrepreneur and biohacker Serge Faguet shares practical tips on what he sees as the six key areas for maximizing one’s own longevity…

With three decades of experience as a professor of clinical medicine under his belt, Dr. Michael Fossel takes a fundamentally pragmatic approach to tackling human aging. It’s with this attitude that he has championed telomerase therapy, in the process writing multiple well-received books on the biology of aging and its clinical implications, as well as…

Part of the Hallmarks of Aging series. What–and why–are telomeres?
