We highly recommend Josh Mitteldorf’s blog and his excellent book, Cracking the Aging Code: The New Science of Growing Old - And What It Means for Staying Young. Josh is a very bright guy who is following aging research closely, and that is why we follow Josh. He doesn’t post very often to his blog, but when he does, it’s an essay worth reading. His book is available for well under $10 through kindle and other outlets. I haven’t finished it yet, but from what I have read so far and Josh’s prior work, it’s safe to say that it is more than worth the $7 in digital credits that it costs at Amazon.
Guys, this article is really important and will bring you up to speed on the quest to understand the exact mechanism that is our biological clock. Josh is always at the cutting edge and presents the (sometimes dense) material in an engaging way. If this is your first dive into longevity research, be sure to read the hot-linked definitions of unfamiliar terms and check out the background links, too.
Not just Siciliani but those whose heritage (like Gina’s and mine) include many parts of the Mediterranean! Sardinia has the most longevity, genetically speaking.
Judging from your picture, his advice must be good.
