Research on aging

The search for the fountain of youth.

The good news is we are living longer. The bad news is that we are not necessarily living better as age-related diseases often limit the quality of life. Studies of successful aging — physical and cognitive success — indicate that genetics account for only part of what determines how well we age. Thus, many experts encourage healthy lifestyle habits, including physical conditioning, diet, stress management and mental stimulation for better cognitive health and longer life expectancy. Noted expert, UCLA Dr. Gary Small, discusses the available methods for living longer in this UCTV program (see video above: first air date, Nov. 10, 57 minutes).
