"The greatest wealth is health."
"Ageing research is clearly gaining momentum … bringing hope that at some time in the future we will be able to keep age-related diseases at bay by suppressing ageing itself."

"Addressing aging will transform medicine and healthcare since most diseases result from aging. Aging is a 100 percent heritable, 100 percent deadly multi-systemic disease caused by evolutionary neglect that accounts for 86% of healthcare costs.”
