Today, I am delighted to have the privilege of embarking on a journey through scientific discovery and the secrets that shape our existence with the esteemed Dr. Morgan Levine!
Dr. Levine is an assistant professor of pathology at Gale University School of Medicine, where she stands at the forefront of a groundbreaking exploration into the enigma of biological aging. Armed with the tools of bioinformatics, she has unraveled the intricacies of aging, deciphering its code. She is the author of the book True Age, and her insights have enlightened those fortunate enough to peruse its pages!
Our discussion delves into the recesses of Dr. Levine’s profound expertise, exploring the domains of biologic aging and epigenetics, unlocking the mysteries of cellular senescence, revealing the connections between lifestyle and longevity, and unearthing the reasons behind aging being considered a veritable disease state. We navigate the landscape of gender-specific aging research, gene influence exemplified by APOE, and the intriguing permanence of our youthful fat cells. We also get into the efficacy of blue zones and hormesis and the importance of exercise and sleep optimization.
Today’s conversation with Dr. Levine promises a symphony of insight and discovery! Join us as we traverse the landscapes of longevity, epigenetics, and the science that might one day render age no more than a number.
