Lifespan: Why We Age—and Why We Don't Have To
David A. Sinclair
https://www.amazon.com/Lifespan-Why-...9073013&sr=8-3

I'm finding this book really fascinating. His recommendations include IF (Intermittent Fasting), CR (Calorie Restriction), plant based diet, exercise and exposure to cold. The health projections for the coming decades are well worth discussion. Author is a professor at Harvard Medical school, and has a lot of insight into current research.

Everyone ages, and everyone dies at some point. That's a fact of life. Even the godfather of fitness, Jack LaLanne, who once said he would live to 150 died at the age of 96. Quality of life rather than quantity of life should be the focus.

Well, quality of life is served by being not just alive in the last decades, but being healthy in the last decades.

That's pretty much my point. I'd much rather die at the age of 70 while still mentally and physically capable, then to live to 90 or beyond in a state of physical or mental impairment. I'm 65.

My grandfather who’s healthy as a horse, I don’t recall he took any medicine, he died naturally at the age of 93 in his sleep. The longest living male in my family. He always ate a lot of different food, not just vegetables. I’ve read a lot of these claims lately, I don’t buy it. I eat lots of vegetables and fruits, but I hate it when people claim that vegetarian is the way to go. I have cousin who was a vegetarian, a sweet angel, died at the age of 49, of colon cancer. I suspect the reason for her dying too young is that she’s a do gooder, helped everybody she could help, took a lot of stress internally, and she internalized a lot of it.

Jack LaLane was run over by a car when he was out running at 96, preparing for a marathon.

That's not true. Jack LaLanne died at home due to respiratory failure.
LaLanne died of respiratory failure due to pneumonia at his home on January 23, 2011. He was 96. According to his family, he had been sick for a week, but refused to see a doctor. They added that he had been performing his daily workout routine the day before his death.[35] He was buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills, California
