A New Era of Health
Hello and welcome to a new era of health for those of us lucky enough to still be alive on planet Earth!
In the past decade, we have also entered a new age of biology.
It’s one in which we can measure what really matters in health, and make changes towards a longer and healthier life.
The science of longevity is extraordinary, but few have heard of it outside of the scientific and research communities. We can now go way beyond measuring our temperature and body mass index.
Expert on your own health
I hope this blog will give you an idea of where to start in becoming an expert on your health, and what tweaks you can make every day – informed by data.
It should not be easier to find out about pensions, retirement and funerals than it is to learn how to live a long and healthy life!
No two bodies are the same, so I invite you to become an expert in yours. For, as we live in our bodily home for a long time, we might as well understand its key performance indicators.
Prevention is personal
Thanks to the breakthrough tools in the consumer science market, it’s no longer down to your doctor to keep you healthy. And, to be honest, it never really was your doctor’s job to keep you healthy. Doctors help people who are sick. The only person who’s going to track your health in depth is you. Prevention is personal.
While we can’t track every biological process, and consumer health certainly can’t prevent every disease, we can help to prevent some of the common, chronic diseases.
Lifespan vs healthspan
This blog is all about increasing your healthspan: in other words, how long we stay healthy during our lifespan.
We know aging isn’t uniform. Women, for example, live about four years longer than men on average. But those extra years of life for women are not necessarily healthy ones. Living longer increases a woman’s chances of chronic conditions like heart disease, cancer, stroke and Alzheimer’s disease.
Research shows that we can expect to live one fifth of our longer lives with a disease. And we know around 80% of those will be heart disease, cancer, diabetes or a chronic lung condition.
If we can focus our efforts on reducing the chances of one of these four big killers, we’ll greatly increase our chance of living a long AND healthy life.
So dig in and read on.
Where to start
A good place to start is to establish your baseline health data, how old you are biologically, and what levers do you need to pull to get your health on track. Then, potentially, you can reduce your biological age.
