How diet & lifestyle can promote aging & deteriorating brain function – UCSF healthy heart talk
Bruce Ames on triage theory, longevity vitamins & micronutrients supplements
Rhonda Patrick, Ph.D. discusses how diet can affect human DNA damage, a well-known initiator of cancer, and dietary changes that can lower DNA damage. She talks about her recent publications on how vitamin D controls serotonin and how this affects brain function and behavior. She also explores the intersection between genetics and environment: how your diet, micronutrients, exercise, and sleep can change the expression of your genes, how this has profound effects on the way your body functions and ages, and how these effects can be passed on to your grandchildren.
