Optimal Performance

Apr 17, 2018

In this episode of the OPP I talk with Dr. Michael Fossel.  We have an amazing conversation about longevity, a possible cure for Alzheimers and other cognitive degenerative diseases.  Dr. Fossel is the author of The Telomorase Revolution and is the founder and former Editor in Chief of Rejuvenation Research.

He's best known best for his views on telomerase therapy as a possible treatment for cellular senescence in human age related disease.  Our conversation moves really quickly, and I get to ask how we include our longevity, his stack, personal work, and the potential for human trials into the reversal of Alzheimers.

Alzheimers is brutal and this is pretty big stuff.
