Scientists are trying to reverse aging so that we can live decades longer: NPR

Scientists understand better why we are aging – and they also better explain the cellular changes that cause our body and brain to lose weight. This research has people like David Sinclair, a geneticist at Harvard Medical School, and Peter Attia, a longevity doctor and oncologist, to challenge the conventional wisdom that aging is inevitable. Sinclair believes that thanks to …
