    Description

    In this paradigm-shifting audiobook from acclaimed Harvard Medical School doctor and one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people on earth, Dr. David Sinclair reveals that everything we think we know about ageing is wrong, and shares the surprising, scientifically proven methods that can help listeners live younger, longer.

    For decades, the medical community has looked to a variety of reasons for why we age, and the consensus is that no-one dies of old age; they die of age-related diseases. That's because ageing is not a disease - it is inevitable.

    But what if everything you think you know about ageing is wrong? What if ageing is a disease? And that disease is curable.

    In Lifespan, Dr David Sinclair, one of the world’s foremost authorities on genetics and ageing, argues just that. He has dedicated his life’s work to chasing more than a longer lifespan - he wants to enable people to live longer, healthier, and disease-free well into our hundreds. In this audiobook, he reveals a bold new theory of ageing, one that pinpoints a root cause of ageing that lies in an ancient genetic survival circuit.

    This genetic trick - a circuit designed to halt reproduction in order to repair damage to the genome - has enabled earth’s early microcosms to survive and evolve into more advanced organisms.

    But this same survival circuit is the reason we age: as genetic damage accumulates over our lifespans from UV rays, environmental toxins, and unhealthy diets, our genome is overwhelmed, causing gray hair, wrinkles, achy joints, heart issues, dementia, and, ultimately, death.

    But genes aren’t our destiny; we have more control over them than we’ve been taught to believe. We can’t change our DNA, but we can harness the power of the epigenome to realise the true potential of our genes.

    Drawing on his cutting-edge findings at the forefront of medical research, Dr Sinclair will provide a scientifically proven road map to reverse the genetic clock by activating our vitality genes, so we can live younger longer.

    Readers will discover how a few simple lifestyle changes - like intermittent fasting, avoiding too much animal protein, limiting sugar, avoiding x-rays, exercising with the right intensity, and even trying cold therapy - can activate our vitality genes.

    Dr Sinclair ends the audiobook with a look to the near future, exploring what the world might look like - and what will need to change - when we are all living well to 120 or more.

    Dr Sinclair takes what we have long accepted as the limits of human potential and mortality and turns them into choices. Lifespan is destined to be the biggest book on genes, biology, and longevity of this decade.

    "If you ever wondered how we age, if we can slow or even reverse aging, and if we can live a healthy 100 plus years, then David Sinclair’s new book Lifespan, which reads like a detective novel, will guide you through the science and the practical strategies to make your health span equal your lifespan, and make your lifespan long and vibrant." (Mark Hyman, MD Director, Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine and number one New York Times best-selling author)

    "This is the most visionary book about aging I have ever read. Seize the day - and seize this book!" (Dean Ornish, MD, founder and president, Preventive Medicine Research Institute, and New York Times best-selling author of UnDo It!

    Aging is not a disease!

    The book is really great I would recommend it to everyone. Even if I actually disagree with the author on two occasion. First, aging is not a disease in itself because it’s make other disease worst. Changing the definition is needed to grant access to funding therapy against aging itself. Cardiovascular disease for exemple have been shown to be reversible with a whole food plant based diet, fact that the author ignore, people can be totally free of the disease, but still age without getting it. Same for type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. Blood pressure get better (sic) with age on a no added salt diet plant based diet. A whole food plant based diet, if widespread, would give exactly the same result that the author is arguing for: longer and healthier lives, which result in a better society for all. But the author has clearly a point, maximum lifespan can indeed be extended for human as seen in other species. Other things worst noting is that the author make the same point than lobbyist for the GMO industry, saying that it will save the world from malnutrition, this has been debunked and it’s mainly a scam in order to patent the most basic human stable food. Other than those two caveats , the book is well written and documented. Extremely interesting and inspiring. Highly recommended!
