This paper basically addresses how our beliefs about the drugs we take impacts how they affect us at a real level, not just at a subjective level, but at a biological level.” —Andrew Huberman

Early detection is going to allow our same toolbox of drugs to be massively more effective.” —Keith Flaherty

#266 – AMA #50: Genetics: how they impact disease risk, what you can do about it, testing, and more

#262 – AMA #49: Heart rate recovery, strength training, rucking, kidney function, and brain health

[Heart rate recovery] is one of the metrics that we should care about just as we care about VO2 max and just as we care about resting heart rate.” —Peter Attia

#261 ‒ Training for The Centenarian Decathlon: zone 2, VO2 max, stability, and strength | Peter Attia, M.D.

I would never want anybody to come away from this thinking, ‘I’m too old to do anything about it.’ I think as long as you’re breathing, you have a chance to do something about it.” —Peter Attia
