Dr Frank Lipman
Dec 1, 2022

Dr. Peter Attia is a longevity-focused physician, podcast host and expert in exercise and sleep physiology, emotional and mental health, and pharmacology for lifespan and healthspan. Here is what he has to say about people who survive to the age of 100+, “Centenarians”:

  • Centenarians live longer and get chronic disease much later when compared to the general population.
  • Centenarians have genes that are resilient to aging.
  • Understanding centenarian genetics can allow us to infer which strategies are the best to reap similar longevity benefits.
  • In order to extend lifespan, it is essential to delay the onset of chronic illness.
