Aubrey de Grey: "Ending Aging" | Talks at Google
Aubrey de Grey has drawn up a roadmap to defeat biological aging. He provocatively proposes that the first human beings who will live to 1,000 years old have already been born. In this talk he describes ongoing research into extending healthy human life, and describes how therapies which can add 30 healthy years to the remaining lifespan of a typical 60-year-old may well arrive in the next few decades.
Dr de Grey's book "Ending Aging" is available on Google Play Books: https://play.google.com/store/books/d...
The quest for eternal youth | Dr. Bradley Willcox, MD | TEDxMaui
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Using lessons from the worlds longest lived people and animals, world-renowned longevity researcher and physician Dr. Bradley Willcox shares some of the secrets to living long, healthy lives, and shares some of the latest research from his laboratory.
World-renowned longevity researcher, physician, co-author of The Okinawan Diet Plan and The Okinawa Program.
As the co-principal investigator of the groundbreaking Okinawa Centenarian Study, Dr. Bradley Willcox is a leading expert in identifying factors that help us remain healthy, vigorous and disability-free at older ages. He has been investigating mechanisms of aging for almost two decades and his research teams have identified several important genetic and environmental risk factors for aging and aging-related chronic diseases.
Bradley is now the principal investigator of the National Institute on Aging-funded Kuakini Hawai‘i Lifespan Study and Kuakini Hawai‘i Healthspan Study, which are ancillary studies on aging from the Kuakini Honolulu Heart Program. Clinically, he runs the Long Term Care Hospitalist Program at The Queen’s Medical Center, where he is a three-time nominee for Physician of the Year.
Bradley trained in Medicine at the University of Toronto, Internal Medicine at the Mayo Clinic and Geriatric Medicine at Harvard Medical School. His work has appeared in cover articles of Time, National Geographic, and on Oprah, Good Morning America, NOVA Science, BBC and other media.
Reverse Aging | Dr. Shai Efrati | TEDxWhiteCity
Reverse aging, taking the biology back in time, can be achieved by inducing the body for self rejuvenation.
Dr. Shai Efrati: Director of the Sagol Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Research, Assaf-Harofeh Medical
Under the management and guidance of Dr. Efrati, the Sagol Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Research has become the largest most occupied hyperbaric center in the world, currently treating more than 120 patients a day. Dr. Efrati initiated a research program focusing on the neuroplasticity (regeneration of brain tissue) of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). In the first clinical study it was proved that HBOT can induce neuroplasticity in stroke and traumatic brain injuries even years after an acute incident. The vital clinical results gained from the research program have shed fascinating new light on regeneration of the injured brain as well as aging tissues.

He consults for biotech and pharmaceutical companies, and is researching aging in the Pacific Rim.
The Most Powerful Strategy for Healing People and the Planet | Michael Klaper | TEDxTraverseCity
Dr. Klaper says he had an awakening while putting people to sleep. When we awaken to the damage that a meat-based diet creates in our body and the toll that the industrial production of animal flesh inflicts upon our planet, we then become aware that the single most effective action anyone can take to improve their personal health and help heal our injured planet is to reduce, or better, eliminate their consumption of meat. Dr. Michael Klaper is a gifted clinician, internationally recognized teacher, and sought-after speaker on diet and health. He has practiced medicine for more than 40 years and is a leading educator in applied plant-based nutrition and integrative medicine. He is also the author of a successful book on cholesterol-free nutrition and an upcoming title (to be announced in 2018), as well as numerous DVDs and Videos on Demand, a series of “Healthy YOU Webinars,” and dozens of articles. A source of inspiration advocating plant-based diets and the end of animal cruelty worldwide, Dr. Klaper contributed to the making of two PBS television programs Food for Thought and the award-winning Diet for a New America movie based on the book of the same name. Dr. Michael Klaper teaches that “Health Comes From Healthy Living” and is dedicated to the healing and flourishing of all living beings and our planet. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
Undoing aging: Aubrey de Grey at TEDxDanubia 2013
Undoing aging: Aubrey de Grey at TEDxDanubia 2013
British biologist Aubrey de Grey talks about a question that people usually try to avoid although it affects all of us. Aging kills the largest number of people and causes many other's suffering day by day. Searching for a solution, de Grey refuses to think about aging as a disease to be cured. He presents a new idea of maintenance to repair the prime cause of aging: the damages of the human body.
