Your DNA is not your destiny, and aging doesn’t need to be an eventuality we begrudgingly accept. We can get in front of it, control it; steer the ship towards death rather than be led by the hand.Professor David Sinclair is here to show you that “if we studied aging as a disease in its own right, and really sought to understand its mechanics, we could not only treat it, but beat it.
