Aubrey de Grey: On Breakthroughs in Longevity Extension
Dr. Aubrey de Grey is a biomedical gerontologist based Mountain View, California, USA, and is the Chief Science Officer of SENS Research Foundation. In this talk Aubrey De Grey details his thoughts on cryo-preservation as well as a synopsis of his thoughts on aging and how he sees technology shaping the aging process going forward. The first seven minutes are focused on cryo-preservation and he delves into the aging process after that.
Arthur De Vany: On Renewing Cycles and Tactics for a Longer Life
The human species is a young species, no more than 200,000 years old; we are also the first species to live long enough to experience aging and significant brain degeneration. The large human brain coevolved with extended human longevity within the last 100,000 years in the harsh world of the Ice Age when intelligence became the basis for survival. Longevity was a requirement to develop a larger brain. The prolonged and complex development required to build the fetal brain left residual stem cells in protected niches in every cell as a reserve for future growth and renewal. What an elegant design — our body is manufactured to have all the spare parts we will ever need in the stem cells hidden in protected niches that can renew or repair damaged parts. Dr. De Vany was one of the first proponents of what has now become the “paleo” diet. He has lived half of his almost 80 years of life in the paleo way. He published his models and methods of an evolutionary lifestyle in his book, The New Evolution Diet, and is now working on a book on aging tentatively titled Renewing Cycles: Healing the wounds of aging through improved cellular defense and systemic renewal signaling.
Aubrey de Grey: On A Post-Aging Planet
Dr. De Grey is known for his view that medical technology may enable human beings alive today to live to lifespans far in excess of any existing authenticated cases. De Grey's research focuses on whether regenerative medicine can thwart the aging process. This video is an introduction to his views on aging and what the world would look like after we have arrested the aging process. He works on the development of what he calls "Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence" (SENS), a collection of proposed techniques to rejuvenate the human body and stop aging. To this end, he has identified seven types of molecular and cellular damage caused by essential metabolic processes. SENS is a proposed panel of therapies designed to repair this damage.

Aubrey de Grey: On Aging with Dr. Rhonda Patrick
In this episode of Rhonda's FoundmyFitness show, Rhonda and Aubrey discuss the types of damage that cause aging, how aging results in a decrease in the capacity to repair damage, what role epigenetics play in aging, how people age at different rates, chronic inflammation as a driver of aging, factors that are in young blood that repair damage, the role of nutrition in aging, and recent technologies such as CRISPR, induced pluripotent stem cells that will advance anti-aging research and more.
Valter Longo: On Fasting-Mimicking Diet & Fasting for Longevity, Cancer & Multiple Sclerosis
Dr. Rhonda Patrick speaks with Dr. Valter Longo, a professor of gerontology and biological sciences and director of the longevity institute at the University of Southern California. Dr. Longo has made huge contributions to the field of aging, including the role of fasting and diet in longevity and healthspan in humans as well as metabolic fasting therapies for the treatment of human diseases. <br> In this conversation, Rhonda and Valter discuss... <br>The effects of prolonged fasting, which refers to 2-3 day fasting intervals in mice and 4-5 days in humans. <br> Dr. Longo’s work on the fasting-mimicking diet, which is 5 day restricted diet that is meant to simulate some of the biological effects of prolonged fasting while still allowing some food. <br> How clinical trials have demonstrated efficacy for this diet for type 2 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and cancer patients. <br> Fasting as an inducer of differential stress resistance, where it can simultaneously make cancer cells more sensitive to death while also making healthy cells more resistant to these same death stimuli (such as chemotherapy) which might otherwise induce cell death amongst healthy cells as collateral damage. <br> Fasting as a biological state which humans historically experienced with extreme regularity and we may ultimately need in order to mitigate various disease states. <br> The effects of prolonged fasting on the immune system, namely, how it clears away damaged white blood cells via autophagy and how this causes hematopoietic stem cells to self renew and make more stem cells and also produce new blood cells to fully replenish the white blood cell population. <br> How prolonged fasting causes a shift in the immune cell population towards one that is more representative of youth by normalizing the ratio of myeloid cells to lymphoid cells. <br> The positive effects of prolonged fasting and the fasting-mimicking diet on markers of systemic inflammation, blood glucose levels and other aging biomarkers. <br> The conclusions of Dr. Longo & Dr. Marcus Bock’s research comparing 1 week of the fasting-mimicking diet followed by 6 months of mediterranean diet to six months of a ketogenic diet in people with multiple sclerosis. <br> The strange, somewhat paradoxical role of autophagy genes in cancer progression and some of the open questions surrounding the exact role that these genes are playing. <br> Dr. Longo’s high level thoughts on metformin as an anti-aging drug. <br> How the growth hormone/IGF-1 axis is one of the most important genetic pathways in aging from yeast to worms to mice to humans.
