I recently found this great TED Talk on avoiding aging given by Aubrey de Grey, a researcher from Cambridge University, a few years back. I know I often talk about specific things that medical research has shown us about aging and increasing longevity so I thought this lengthy monologue would a nice compliment to what I've blogged about in the past.
One note that I have, which has absolutely nothing to do with trying to or wanting to avoid aging, is that I love they way Aubrey looks in this video. He seriously reminds me of Methuselah or something. :)
On a related note we may not be able to stop aging entirely yet but I did review some of the best anti aging products on the market. This is the usual stop-gap and the science of skin care really has advanced a good deal in recent years.
