Diseases & Conditions: Prevention tactics, treatments, and more
Over 80% of deaths in people over 50 who do not smoke can be grouped into 4 main categories, what I like to call the four horsemen of chronic disease. If you want to live longer, delaying the onset of these chronic diseases is critical.
Extending Lifespan (Length of Life)
One of the foundational concepts of longevity is that if you want to live longer, you have to live longer without chronic disease, not live longer with chronic disease. This knowledge, combined with one’s family medical history and individual labs can then help focus attention on the specific chronic disease(s) you are most at risk of developing.
