Aging Is Not a Disease: Promoting Optimal Function Throughout Life
Presented by: Jeffrey Bland, PhD
It is well known that people are more likely to get sick as they age, and therefore there is an assumption that aging is a disease. There is no data that confirms this assumption. Rather it is now recognized that diseases of aging are more related to the connection between our genes and our lifestyle, diet and environment. Successful aging is therefore related to identifying the specific needs that an individual has within their genes to promote optimal function.
In this presentation, a discussion of the biological discoveries of the early 21st century that demonstrate how to personalize health care to increase the health span of an individual that results in putting life in our years and years in our lives will be provided.
