Will it ever be possible to stop ageing altogether, or is everlasting youth strictly science fiction? Many scientists believe that living free from disease until the age of 100 is achievable within our lifetimes. Vivienne Parry joins scientist, writer and broadcaster Andrew Steele and pharmacologist Lauren Walker to discuss what happens when we age and to consider the practical things that can help us age well. They explore the revolutionary use of drugs and medical interventions that could defer or prevent many of the world’s deadliest diseases and consider how these advances are paving the way for us all to live healthier, longer lives.
