How much of longevity is attributable to genetic factors, and how much to family history, biomarkers, lifestyle or environment?
What are the modifiable risk factors – diet, stress, exercise, medication, human connection, smoking, alcohol, the environment…?
How do we define “biological age?” Do we look at changes in metabolism…vulnerability to infection…immunologic status?
