The Science of Longevity

View Slide Presentation

Changes in diet over a mere 11 days significantly decreased the growth of prostate cancer cells in human serum (blood minus red blood cells), according to William Aronson, left, of the Olive View UCLA Medical Center. Joining him are Luigi Fontana, center, of the Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine and David Heber of UCLA's David Geffen School of Medicine.

We all want to live past our 100th birthdays. But unless we take care of ourselves, the quality of life in our later years is destined to be compromised. This panel of experts outlines the real facts on nutrition, longevity and the prevention of disease, including evidence-based outcomes research on nutritional strategies and supplements. Separating truth from myth, their discussion reveals the secrets of living much longer — and living well.
