"Aging is a very complex process. We know that the rate of aging is influenced by our genes and our behavior and more specifically by how and what we eat. Powerful interventions that slow down the aging process will come to see light in the coming decades. For now, the most potent tool at our disposal to impact the rate of aging is our diet.”
