Lynne Cox discusses cell senescence and how studies show the removal of these cells can help healthy ageing. Professor Cox is a biogerontologist at the University of Oxford.
"Global average life expectancy increased by 5.5 years between 2000 and 2016, the fastest increase since the 1960s" This presents opportunities to individuals, employers and policy makers to help ALL live longer, healthier lives.

Interesting article @Telegraph on five different anti ageing concepts “Many of the wealthiest and brightest people in Silicon Valley are turning their attention to perhaps the most difficult problem of all: how can we live longer?”

A great article @independent on how Prof Sarah Gilbert is leading the way on the COVID19 vaccine “When you’re in the situation that you need to do things which could potentially have a large impact, you just get on with it.”

Longer lives and changes in how we live can influence population. Experts predict the world population may start shrinking before 2100. These great visuals on the world population in 2100 help explain.
Factors such as #healthcare, #poverty and #pollution can cause drastic differences in life spans. These images portray the differences of two Chicago neighbourhoods that are only 8 miles apart that have a #life-expectancy gap of about 30 years. @nytimes

This year's virtual Longevity Week will be themed "The Age of Resilience"
We will be focusing on the challenges presented by COVID19 & discuss ideas on how we can prevent & combat future pandemics to ensure healthier, longer lives can be achieved by all.

Estimated cost of recent epidemics/pandemics:
SARS (2003) - $40 billion
H5N1 (2006) - $40 billion
H1N1 (2009) - $45 billion
Ebola (2014) - $55 billion
COVID-19 (2020) - $8.8 TRILLION
Investing in public health preparedness is FAR cheaper than the economic impact of a pandemic.
A throwback to Longevity Week last year! Podcast with Laura Deming, a venture capitalist leading the way on longevity investment.
With longer lives, we need to financially prepare for a long retirement. An interesting article @MilkenInstitute on how we need to rethink our financial needs for later.

#Covid has resulted in more older people using #tech creating a new market for start ups. 15% of the population today is over 65 but will reach 22% by 2050. “[This is] a sector that has long been ignored by venture capital money” says Patricof @FT

Even in a #pandemic older people are flourishing "AARP found that 57 percent of those 60 or older actually reported feeling younger than they are, compared to only 42 percent of respondents 40 to 59 and 27 percent of those 18 to 39." @nytimes
Another diet tip towards #longevity...olive oil! "Compounds in the fat of this high-grade oil can flush out proteins that gum up the communication channels between brain cells" @aarp https://www.aarp.org/health/healthy-living/info-2020/olive-oil-benefits.html
