Abstract:

This is not an anti-aging audiobook. It's a groundbreaking guide to functional aging--extending our healthy and active lives longer than ever thought possible. Practical immortality may be within our grasp due to cutting-edge scientific research and amazing medical breakthroughs that are coming at an astonishing speed. In Chasing life, prominent neurosurgeon and medical journalist Sanjay Gupta, MD, blends accounts of discoveries from around the world with advice for optimal health and longevity. Dr. Gupta's findings are provocative and even counterintuitive. For instance, did you know that the secret to living longer may not be about eating well, but about eating less? That those nutritional supplements you're taking could be a waste of money? That one single exercise technique could be sufficient to prolong life? Dr. Gupta also predicts advances that will revolutionize our health--including application of stem cell therapy to make degenerative diseases a bad memory, and advances in gene sequencing and nanotechnology.
