Beat Ageing with Dr Andrew Steele

Can we beat ageing? This is the topic of today’s discussion and whilst you might think this is yet another dive into our narcissistic tendency to want to live forever and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, the field of ageing and how to reverse it ( known as biogerontology) is actually about beating cancer, dementia, strokes and all the things that become exponentially more likely after the age of 50.

Dr Andrew Steele PhD is a scientist, writer and campaigner based in London, and author of Ageless: The new science of getting older without getting old. After a PhD in physics from the University of Oxford, he decided that ageing was the single most important scientific challenge of our time, and switched fields to computational biology.
His latest book, dives into the history of ageing research, what we understand about ageing today as well as why in as little as the next few years, I as a doctor, might be able to prescribe a suite of anti-ageing drugs.

Today we talk about:
The 10 features of ageing
How we measure ageing
Senescence, Autophagy, Fasting, Mitochondria, DNA damage
Anti-ageing drugs and why senolytics are so exciting
The supplements people are currently using for ageing
Gene and Stem cell therapy

Do check out Andrew’s book, Ageless, and for links to his YouTube channel and further work in the field of ageing.

  2. This was such an amazing podcast! I believe he is so right about anti-aging supplements. We just don’t have enough information on them yet to know weather it will all be beneficial years down the road…and also will they end up being detrimental! We just don’t know. I try to get enough sleep, take my vitamins, eat Whole Foods, fast and exercise daily. I’m hoping this is enough for now and I will continue to listen and learn about the changing information on aging subjects. As a 40 year old female, I’m hoping during my lifetime I will be able to see a huge breakthrough in this area.

  3. Hi I am interested in living much longer I'm not a scientist and also I saw articles about pills in development that can let us live 200 years and beyond by eliminating our senescence cells know anything about it because i want to take the medicine when it is available because i really like the research being done with senolytics
