This month on the Rejuvenation Roundup Podcast, Ryan O’Shea of Future Grind talks about Lifespan.io’s new writer, Lifespan News discussing the effects of alpha-ketoglutarate on lifespan and healthspan, Science to Save the World, the positive effects of caloric restriction on DNA repair, epigenetic clocks, the effects of temperature on osteoporosis, and other rejuvenation topics.

Age-related diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and cancer, are some of the worst drains on our society, both in terms of personal suffering and socio-economic effects. One of the reasons why our work is so important is that, historically, research aimed at tackling these diseases has been focused at the end stages of such maladies, when it is too late to reverse the damage that has been done. A good analogy is a tree: what makes more sense — spending a ton of money trying to cure a branch of a branch, or directing that focus to the trunk of the tree itself? Aging is the greatest risk factor for all of these major diseases, and in many cases, it is ultimately the primary cause. While it may seem hard to believe, biological science has finally progressed enough to begin targeting the root mechanisms of aging, and — thanks to the efforts of the world-renowned researchers and labs we work with, such as Drs. David Sinclair, George Church, and Aubrey de Grey — is beginning to bring aging, and therefore these diseases, under medical control. Everything we’ve done thus far, and everything we will do in the future, is thanks to your support, and that is why we are asking you to stand with us – to be a Lifespan Hero and help us improve the lives of not just ourselves and our family members, but everyone in the entire world. Together, we can do this. Be a Hero.
Join us, and together, we can overcome diseases like Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and cancer by addressing their shared source: the aging processes themselves.
