Can we delay aging?

Ninety percent of major diseases are related to aging; understanding the genetics of aging is key to a longer and healthier life. Age is the number-one risk factor common to the major diseases. Our approach of treating one disease at a time doesn’t work. One audience member asked, “What is the best way to prevent aging?” Dr. Blaum said exercise and diet are important as they aid in the prevention of diabetes and other illnesses. “Exercise especially is the one thing you can do to slow down the effects of aging,” she said.
