Diseases

#138 – Lauren Miller Rogen and Richard Isaacson, M.D.: Alzheimer’s disease prevention—patient and doctor perspectives

“Believe it or not, there are 46 million Americans with Alzheimer’s disease in their brain right now, but no symptoms.” — Richard Isaacson

Aging

#123 – Joan Mannick, M.D. & Nir Barzilai, M.D.: Rapamycin and metformin—longevity, immune enhancement, and COVID-19

“I think what the mTOR inhibitors are doing is not stopping people from getting infected [with a virus], but if you get infected, there’s a better immune response and your symptoms will be milder.” — Joan Mannick

Ketosis

#120 – AMA with Dom D’Agostino, Ph.D., Part II of II: Ketosis for cancer and chronic disease, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and the effect of ketosis on female health

“The function of the mitochondria and mitochondrial health are the ultimate mitigator of neurodegenerative diseases…just by reducing the potential for reactive oxygen species related damage.” — Dom D’Agostino

Ketosis

#116 – AMA with Dom D’Agostino, Ph.D., Part I of II: Ketogenic diet, exogenous ketones, and exercise

“If you restore insulin sensitivity, you’re better able to access and burn fat.” — Dom D’Agostino

Fasting

#114 – Eileen White, Ph.D.: Autophagy, fasting, and promising new cancer therapies

“I would like to translate what we’ve learned about the role of autophagy in cancer and that involves developing small molecules to inhibit autophagy for cancer therapy.” — Eileen White

Diseases

#111 – AMA #14: What lab tests can (and cannot) inform us about our overall objective of longevity

“Metabolic health really matters. It is the common thread that links all of these chronic diseases.” — Peter Attia

Nutritional biochemistry

#94 – Mark Hyman, M.D.: The impact of the food system on our health and the environment

If we were eating what the government actually funded in agricultural supports, we’d be having a giant corn fritter, deep fried in soybean oil. And it’s like, that’s not exactly what we should be eating.” —Mark Hyman

Treatments

Metformin and exercise – déjà vu all over again?

Metformin blunts muscle hypertrophy in response to progressive resistance training

Aging

#67 – AMA #8: DNA tests, longevity genes, metformin, fasting markers, salt, inflammation, and more

“If you are genetically blessed to become a centenarian, the gift you got is that you have genes that delay your receipt of chronic disease by what appears to be about 20 years.” — Peter Attia

Aging

#66 – Vamsi Mootha, M.D.: Aging, type 2 diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease – do all roads lead to mitochondria?

“We have 300 different forms of monogenic mitochondrial diseases. . .and these are terrible diseases and we need therapies for them. . .but it’s also our hope that studying some of them will provide insights into the common form of aging as well.” —Vamsi Mootha
