Public Lecture:  You Are As Young As You Feel

Professor Rose Anne Kenny is an award winning physician and researcher.

She recently led a public lecture which covered a wide variety of issues.

  • Why do some people have a lower biological age than chronological age ??
  • Role play by food,  genetics,  sex,  physical exercise,  cold water,  friendships + more.
  • Why do some of us live longer than others ??
  • Why do we live twice as long today as our ancestors did 200 years ago ??
  • Can the latest science teach us to live longer lives.
  • And to live fitter,  healthier and happier lives,  deep into our later years.

You can hear and see it all on the link below.

Why not give it a try ??
