Dr. Aubrey De Grey (pictured above) is a British researcher on anti-aging.

He claims he has drawn a roadmap to defeat biological aging, and provocatively proposes that the first human beings who will live to 1,000 years old have already been born. 

In today’s podcast, I interview Dr. De Grey, and we discuss his seven “reasons” for aging and what you can do about it. You’ll learn:

-Why aging may not actually be inevitable…

-7 strategies for increasing longevity…

-Which enzymes keep your body from building up junk…

-Cutting-edge strategies to keep you actually feeling good when you live long…

-And much more!

If you want to read more, De Grey expounds upon the following 7 principles and Delivery Systems he is developing:

1. Extracellular Junk
2. Death-Resistant Cells
3. Extracellular Crosslinks
4. Intracellular Aggregates
5. Mitochondrial Mutations
6. Nuclear Mutations
7. Cell Loss and Atrophy

-The Island Where People Forget To Die article

    I think the link to the podcast is not working :)

  2. John Carraway says:

    A lot of echo or feedback from your mic around 46:20.

  3. Thanks Ben. This is hands down the most useful podcast to date. Love to see more like this one.

    What about alkalinity? Any thoughts Ben?

    • I think alkalinity is important (note that for example on the island of Ikeria they're not eating huge hunks of meat a day, but just moderate amounts) but I also think people overestimate the whole "acid-alkaline" effect of foods. Chris Kresser recently had a good article on this. If you eat healthy, real, preferably local food and avoid toxins, your body will maintain a decent pH on it's own.

    I'm sorry, did he say on the podcast that sugar was an essential nutrient?
    I just don't believe that to be true.

      A lot of talk on popular health blogs these days about ketogenic diets and the less sugar you burn for energy the longer or healthier you live. I'm curious as to how much a low carb high fat diet contributes to better aging and if Dr Aubrey has looked into that at all.

      Is there any particular reason why you don't believe that?

  6. Turrican14 says:

    I really enjoyed the interview but why is this article called "7 Natural Anti-Aging Strategies That Will Stop Your Body From Getting Prematurely Old And Worn-Down"? It's more than a little misleading. Dr. De Grey espoused exactly 0 strategies and was very clear in stating that there aren't any that would apply to everyone. The only strategy here would be to help spread the word about his research and try to make it a more widely recognised topic.

    After 30 min. of listening to this show on my Finis, I realized that I was just swimming in some unorganized pattern and not following my prescribed swim set. Wow! it is amazing how the most intelligent minds often fail to grasp the simplicities of life as exampified by the island where people forget to die. I myself, often geek too much over biohacking when in reality it can go back to the old adage of “The Simple Things” done right. Thanks Ben for clarifying that at the end of the podcast of which I almost didn’t listen to but kept hoping you would bring out “The One Pearl.”

  8. Ammae86 says:

    How about Tim Ferriss' recommendation of donating blood?

    Also, isn't autophagy induced by IF or protein cycling going to help with the intracellular junk or is that a different junk?

  9. natmelchiorre says:

    Listeners of this podcast might be interested to know Dr. de Grey just donated $13M of his own money to SENS.

  10. […] about what causes aging (and how at this point we can’t do anyhthing about yet), listen to THIS interview with world-renown anti-aging researcher, Aubrey de […]

  11. Isaiah says:

    I can’t seem to load the podcast. Is it working?

  12. ijparadis says:

    I just found this blog post and I love it! I'm very interested and fascinated by the idea of de-aging and how to live much, MUCH longer than what people expect. My reason is that life is too short and I need more time to accomplish more in my life. I recently found out about the 2045 Immortality Project…pretty cool.
