Peter and Dan recap the recent Abundance Platinum Longevity trip, where Peter and a select group spent five days learning from the top longevity and immunity experts in two of California’s top biotech hubs.
In this episode:
- Peter offers his biggest takeaways from the trip, including one insight from Dr. Deepak Srivastava, President of the Gladstone Institutes, who explained why heart disease remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the U.S. A tremendous feat, Dr. Srivastava’s recent discovery involves using gene therapy to convert fibroblasts into heart myocytes, reversing scar tissue in the heart, and helping heart attack victims rapidly recover to live healthy lives.
- Dan and Peter agree that mindset is one of the most important pillars of living a long and healthy life. Peter explains why the most important goal is to “not die from something stupid,” as advances in longevity technology will have dramatic impacts on the human healthspan in the next 5-10 years.
- Peter talks about the power of intermittent fasting, citing a majority of featured scientists who have touted its health benefits.
