Getting older without getting old - with Andrew Steele

  • Am Vor 4 Monate

    The Royal InstitutionThe Royal Institution

    Ageing is not a biological inevitability. Scientists are studying every aspect of the body which could lead to treatments that could slow down, or even stop, the ageing process.

    In this talk by Andrew Steele, discover how understanding the scientific implications of ageing could lead to the greatest revolution in the history of medicine. One that has the potential to transform the human condition.

    Watch the Q&A with Andrew here: de-film.com/v-video-ZcO-KwYOVN0.html
    Andrew's book 'Ageless' is out now: geni.us/t50pxZv

    Andrew Steele is a London-based scientist, writer and presenter.

    After completing a PhD in Physics, he decided to make the unusual leap to biology as he saw understanding ageing as the greatest humanitarian mission of our time. A recent Research Fellow at the Francis Crick Institute in London, he has used computers to decode our DNA and unravel the secrets hidden in some of modern biology’s biggest data.

    He has featured in or on the Guardian, Sky News, The One Show, and Discovery’s Impossible Engineering and Through the Wormhole, BBC Radio 4’s Inside Science and Newshour.

    His latest book 'AGELESS: The New Science of Getting Older Without Getting Old' is available from Amazon at geni.us/t50pxZv .

    This talk was recorded at the Royal Institution on 16 March 2022.

As several of you pointed out, the original title of this video was inaccurate! Instead of 'Getting old without getting older', we've changed it to 'Getting older without getting old'. Apologies to Andrew Steele for getting it wrong - perhaps our brains need some of that anti-ageing science.

I'd heard about one or two of the possibilities in reversing the aging process over the past few years and was wondering how the various things in trial were going, but obviously wasn't aware of how many different areas of research there were that are likely to now to be developing ways to treat each specific symptom, and it is very nice to see how excited Andrew is about the possible near future advancements. Thanks so much to him and The Royal Institution for sharing this information, he is very articulate, easy to watch, and his excitement is contagious. I just hope that people will start donating to research into curing ageing, rather than donating so many billions to curing each of it's individual symptoms! There's another few trillion dollars into the world economies once/if a cure for ageing can one day be found. 🙏✌

When I started "restudying" biology as an adult many pennies finally dropped compared to what I learned in school, to break it down I realized yes you are literally what you eat and more on the philosophical side of things, yes we really are all one. It made me think about ageing and what those implications would be if we lasted even a decade longer. If everyone had the more reasonable life span of 100 years instead of maybe making it to our 80s/90s I think it may have the opposite effect on the population. I think most species only breed out of nessecessity and lack of time. We "know" we only have so long to have a family and on an emotional level it may be to replace the family already lost etc. But what if we have more time? That might change. Also on the most selfish side some people try to live their youthful dreams through their kids, again what if we have more time to realise those dreams for ourselves? As far as America and where it throws money, I don't think all the Healthcare companies would let money go to that research when they make so much from diseases and suffering. Vicious cycle.

When I was a young man I worked at a Health food store. Over and over again I would meet these 80+ year old people (couples) who looked 40 maybe 50. I asked them what their secret was and they all said eating healthy foods in their natural form and taking some vitamins. They all took vitamin C and flaxseed and a few other antioxidant type vitamins. And they exercised daily in moderation. They looked and moved like athletic middle aged people.

​@eyeshalfwayopen eyeshalfwayopenI love helping out on the net! if it's ok to keep talking - what's the issue with the flax? Maybe I can help? For me, the highest would be milk (I really don't recommend it). The internet also says sesame, chickpeas, garlic (not recommended by me) apricots, red grapes, and nuts (the ones that're botanically seeds, like walnuts and pistachios). Fiber's antiestrogenic they say. Sounds like a lot of hummus would help!

Fascinating. Thank you for pointing out this subject is actually as far developed as it appears to be. On the one hand, one may wonder if there won't be unintended consequences since after, all it took Nature millions of years to establish lifespan to what it is now and it seems to me such 'shocks' would not go without consequences we can't fathom yet. But let's say it could be done without biological repercussion. What would it mean? well obviously we can't all live longer for ever without getting true malthusian nightmare scenarios. We would need to spread out over the galaxy for resources. Alternatively (or in parallel) those with the most money would secure their position for them and their siblings before this technology diffuses to the lower classes, meaning we would see intentional organized lower life expectancy of the ordinary people. You can't have it all. And would such disasters not inturn reflect back onto the elite themselves at some point. And even if not, what kind of 'happeniness' and fulfillment of life would that mean for those remaining on the top of the mountain. Morally? Religiously? And what if some of the elite got the better drugs than the others; how about internal intrigues? For me any human life is valuable. Not sure how well this would pan out. I do see some inevitability of application. We need to think long and hard how this longer life would fit into happier life. For all of us. Because it cannot be restricted to only a few as they would not lead happy lives even though they might think they would. It is a fork in the road of our evolution. That much would appear to be clear...

@dražen zagreb The reason why people, in general, are not worried enough about environment or other major o minor problems related to this planet, is precisely that they don't expect to last long in this world. We are quite selfish as a species and tend to ignore the consequences of many of our acts, specially if these are still far away in time to be noticed. But what if I expect to remain here for a much longer period of time? Well, then ... I would surely like to make sure I stay in a proper place to live in, at least whie I'm here.

Interesting talk on the subject of aging. It’s primarily about anti-aging drugs that will be available in the future. If that’s the case, and they’re affordable, I’ll try it. In the time being, it makes sense to take good care of yourself and stay active to slow down the aging process as much as possible. Now for my story. As a teenager and preteen kid I was one of those wimpy weakling types, largely useless at sports and school physical education class. Fast forward to the present I’m 61 years old, healthy and quite fit, and from what others have told me I look about 8 years younger than my actual age. Why? What happened? It’s because I smartened up, have taken decent care of my health, and keep active, ignoring all those ageisms that someone my age shouldn’t be doing the things I do like mountain biking. If I can do it, so can anyone else. I recently saw a video about a woman 73 year old mountain biking down steep slopes in British Columbia. Also I see Paul McCartney is still rocking at 80 years old and last but not least I saw a clip on TV of a 100 year old man still driving the tractor and working his farm near Teeswater, Ontario. See what happens when you stay active?

@2Cupo'Joe "George Burns smoked cigars and drank. He lived to be a hundred. Vices are important." I never mentioned merely living long, but living fully. That is why I mentioned Leni Riefensthal, it's not important she lived up to 101, but that she would dive and pilot planes and do all sort of stuff without ever losing energy and vitality. One can smoke cigars and drink while living a life all seated on a sofa watching TV. Those who have a healthy lifestyle can live a very active life also in their old age. In any case, I looked on Wikipedia about Burns and I read: "Burns remained in good health for most of his life, in part thanks to a daily exercise regimen of swimming, walks, sit-ups, and push-ups."

What he should have hammered home in that last section is that anti-ageing efforts are not just about extending the life span, the main objective is to allow people to live more % of their lives without lingering problems forcing them to just countdown their last years.

He didn't seem to be singling any particular group out (for who would you give this treatment to). I've seen some other talks by a demographer (Peter Zeihan) that suggests many parts of the world are heading for hard times demographically so although longer life expectancy might not be desirable right now (in terms of resource consumption etc) by the time any treatments become available it might not be such a bad thing.

Serious fasting (2 weeks at a time or more, only water) is the medicine we already have. Fasting "eats" senescent cells and "rejuvenates". I fasted two times (29 days and 14 days), and both times my relatives told me I "looked younger", and I felt younger, too. I am planning to fast once a year for 14 days for the rest of my life, if circumstances allow for it.

Look up Dr Jason Fung and Dr Paul Mason on YouTube as they present the science on fasting really well, in my opinion. I am hooked on their lectures. Anecdotally I have been eating less meals a day, going with out food for 16- 20 hours most days and sometimes I have done two or three day fasts and I do feel it has done me lots of good. This is combined with eating less carbohydrates. I sleep better, lost a bit of weight, have loads of energy all day. Noticeably better than before I started fasting.

@Davis Germain so human beings have been around for hundreds of thousands of years, do you think they all ate three meals a day in all that time?, or even early humanoids, they would have eaten even less,….fasting has been adapted over hundreds of thousands of years by the human body to rid itself of toxins and to renew itself on a cellular level through autophogy, there is your answer thank you very much

Is not the truth of the matter that from the moment that men (human beings) are born, or first draw breath, they embark upon a process identical in every respect to either jumping or being pushed from a very high place, which can only possibly have one result or consequence? What the speaker seems to be contemplating is that it is possible to commence or start that process of falling *without* eventually coming into contact the ground or whatever is adamant at high speed, or that it is or might be, possible to go in for falling *without* landing on the ground. Is it not exactly correct state that there is absolutely nothing that anyone might try after entering the process of life or falling that can possibly alter that inexorable consequences or results of falling which started from the moment that you either jumped or were pushed? Is it not true to say that for all practical purposes, given that jumping or being pushed, or living can only have one possible outcome jumping or falling or living are in every possible respect identical to hitting the ground? - Because one is the inescapable consequence of the other because that was a certainty from the moment that you were born, first drew breath, jumped, or were pushed, or were born, for all practical purposes given that the outcome of jumping is hitting the ground. Furthermore it strikes me that while you are alive or falling, no amount of worrying or being afraid and no amount of doing anything can possibly affect the inescapable consequence or outcome. Why would anyone be frightened something that they have never experienced? Is it not true to say that no amount of fear or care can possibly alter the inevitable outcome of jumping or being pushed or living? – Do you not hit the ground the very second you jump or are born or commence what is called living which in point of fact and reality(whatever that might be) that it can only possibly have one *absolutely certain* outcome unless of course you happen have a note from your mummy saying that diddums is excused gravity, so the title the piece is best rephrased as “how to jump or fall/jump from a higher place without hitting the ground which is identical to saying: “how to go swimming without getting wet” Thus birth is jumping, and living is falling. Right now dear reader you and I are rather like the man that jumps from the top of a very high building of say, two hundred storeys and going by an open window on the 50th floor and saying to whoever happens to be looking out of the window: “so far so good.” That being the case the title of the piece is little more than: “how to jump from the top of a skyscraper without actually hitting the ground.” I rather suppose that there is a word or someone that supposes or imagines that that is possible given that for practical purposes jumping or falling and landing, are one and the same thing, or some might suggest that is possible to fall more slowly and that to them, they appear to be falling so slowly that they may suppose that they will never get the ground, and I also suppose there is a word for someone like that. You and I, dear reader are falling at this very moment, are we not? Do you suppose that there is *anything* that you and I can possibly do that can materially alter the inevitable outcome of jumping or being pushed, or living, or falling? Do you perhaps suppose that it is possible to fall*Up*?

This was a really interesting, well-delivered and thought-provoking talk, well worth a watch. Having studied both aging and demography, I understand how much it is to fit in an hour talk BUT...the arguments for extending life are quite misguided, poorly constructed, deflective and cherry-picking statistics. You absolutely cannot be seriously suggesting that the burden created on the planet with a +16% change in projected 2050 population (i.e. actually ~40% increase on today's population) can be solved by working 16% harder to solve the world's problems?! Also, a straight "no" to the ethical counter argument "Would you invent ageing?" or "annually remove 100,000 people each year from the population" is complete nonsense unless you are also willing to consider the question "Would you end fertility?". Population growth is a function of births and deaths, and the population will ALWAYS increase exponentially unless there is some way that births

@Yellow Rose Well, if over a prolonged period of time you eat fewer calories than your body needs to maintain itself, your body will compensate by slowing its metabolism, which makes you not as hungry. It can be self-reinforcing. The converse of this is the way some obese people are continually hungry. It can be self-reinforcing.

We may not like the idea of ageing and dying, but the idea of NOT ever dying seems even worse from a number of perspectives.

I love boffins who can make complex subjects accessible to duffers like me! On the ethical question (ie with reference to the global warming issue) there is strong evidence to suggest that birthrates decline with increased life expectancy - particularly where that life expectancy is accompanied by improved health outcomes in later years. The fear of growing old alone, with no support system and no social support network often drives the perceived necessity for larger families. The thought that we might be able and capable in later life is, I would imagine likely to reverse that trend.

I have to say that at 70 plus plus and increasing by the second, the prospect of not dying or landing fills me with absolute horror, as it does my friends in their 90s and they and I don't expect to continue or be forced to continue for long, and all of us agree that it is a *kindness* that we are allowed to land or die. We also all agree that it is as futile as it is asinine to be frightened of what being frightened cannot possibly alter which for all we know may be perfectly pleasant. It is a *kindness* to men (human beings) that they can die – must *inescapably and inevitably* die, or hit the ground high-speed having commenced the process of falling by being born or first drawing breath.

Is not the truth of the matter that from the moment that men (human beings) are born, or first draw breath, they embark upon a process identical in every respect to either jumping or being pushed from a very high place, which can only possibly have one result or consequence? What the speaker seems to be contemplating is that it is possible to commence or start that process of falling *without* eventually coming into contact the ground or whatever is adamant at high speed, or that is or might be, possible to go in for falling *without* landing on the ground. Is it not exactly correct state that there is absolutely *nothing* that anyone might try after entering the process of life or falling that can possibly alter that inexorable consequences or results of falling which started from the remote that you either jumped or were pushed? Is it not true to say that for all practical purposes, given that jumping or being pushed, or living can only have one possible outcome jumping or falling or living are in every possible respect identical to hitting the ground?= Because one is the inescapable consequence of the other because that was a *certainty* from the moment that you were born, first drew breath, jumped, or were pushed, or were born, for all practical purposes given that the outcome of jumping is hitting the ground. Furthermore it strikes me that while you are alive or falling, no amount of worrying or being afraid and no amount of doing anything can possibly affect the inescapable consequence or outcome. Why would anyone be frightened something that they have never experienced? Is it not true to say that no amount of fear or care can possibly alter the inevitable outcome of jumping or being pushed or living? – Do you not hit the ground the very second you jump or are born or commence what is called living which in point of fact and reality(whatever that might be) that it can only possibly have one *absolutely certain* outcome unless of course you happen have a note from your mummy saying that diddums is excused gravity, so the title the piece is best rephrased as “how to jump or fall/jump from a higher place without hitting the ground which is identical to saying: “how to go swimming without getting wet” Thus birth is jumping, and living is falling. Right now dear reader you and I are rather like the man that jumps from the top of a very high building of say, two hundred storeys and going by an open window on the 50th floor and saying to whoever happens to be looking out of the window: “so far so good.” That being the case the title of the piece is little more than: “how to jump from the top of a skyscraper without actually hitting the ground.” I rather suppose that there is a word or someone that supposes or imagines that that is possible given that for practical purposes jumping or falling and landing, are one and the same thing, or some might suggest that is possible to fall more slowly and that to them, they appear to be falling so slowly that they may suppose that they will never get the ground, and I also suppose there is a word for someone like that. You and I, dear reader are falling at this very moment, are we not?

Unrelated to all the moral issues and monetary benefits, I see a huge potential in academics. Usually aging puts a massive damper on your academic career. As I have taught programming to 13 and 40 year olds alike, you can clearly see the slowdown with age. Programming is a especially good indicator since it deviates from almost everything you learn in school and daily life. You really need a flexible mind and children are very good at that. If you could bring just a little bit of that flexibility and curiosity back to a 60 year old researcher, we could narrow the gap to the next breakthrough in anything basically.

@Grizabeebles some, most, old people continue to approach problems with the same methods used in earlier life when they were adapting. They will make the same mistakes of the past and so appear rigid and dense . The other type of old person is one who learns, but maintains inner control and can apply all their knowledge to new situations and build knowledge. They retain the freshness of constant observation, they retain a position of inner observation and awareness of the now. Knowledge and mental development happens naturally up to a point, after that you have to sail that ship yourself.

@T S -- Again, I agree with what you are saying. You also seem to agree with my point that as people live longer lives, the proportion of older people in society will increase. I forsee a problem if the older generations behave as though they are playing a zero-sum game. In a democratic system, a large block of older people that means that more votes will go toward the _interests_ of older people and policies which may benefit the older members of society _to the detriment_ of younger members of society. That is what I see happening. "A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they shall never sit."

@Grizabeebles I think Japan is a very culturally and historically specific example of a modern society, and of late also adopting western values, into traditionally developed structures, dating back to when Japan closed itself off from the world, due to Europe creating havoc, violence and death through its infamous colonial hegemonic MOs. I understand why Japan closed it's borders, because being colonised, exploited and oppressed isn't anybody's goal. The closing of borders allowed Japan to develop and fine tune it's culture and social norms. However that doesn't mean it was all heaven, but it does render Japan a very specific and unique country and society when it comes to assessing it within modern Western agencies. (North Korea also closed itself off due to the horrific attacks it suffered during WWII, and it needed time to rebuild and heal, however that seems to have backfired through bad leadership). Japan faces massive and complicated issues, and its difficult, unfair and impossible to pin so many different issues on only one demographic or source. That said I don't agree that older, the old or elderly people only behave by screaming at youth. I've seen this happen sometimes, but it isn't the norm. We could say that the youth screams at elderly, however that would also be a fallacy. We will always face generational differences, however they're not necessarily problems, and those that are, can be worked around or through or with. The benefits of working across generations, far outweigh the loss of benefits we are experiencing by separating generations. In my own personal experiences and in those I've seen around me, working together has brought with it some amazing results. We need to divert away from dividing, segregating and separating, and rather understand and go back to unity across community and society.

Despite all its amazing advancements it's always struck me that modern medicine is stuck in the past with its almost exclusive focus on treatment rather than prevention. I think perhaps the idea of preventing the illnesses of old age would be much more attractive to most people than preventing old age itself, even if they effectively mean the same thing.

it is - I have a an environmental health degree - because it is a type of degree that focuses on disease prevention - the diseases caused by the environment. The issue isn't prevention - it's that people don't want to and fight it - due to making money off of people's misery. Look - if we separate money from our need to survive, we'd not have vested interests that get in the way of focusing on prevention. If you'd like to know how to prevent illness, let me know and I can give you my personal website.

Very nice speech which summs up what everyone with 2 brain cells must clearly see... and yet 99.99% people seems more interested in all the other things than this. My head sometime hurt trying to imagine mind processes of this wast majority :( or does they lack self preservation instinct? Ah....

@bookzdotmedia Sola Fide yes sleep is fasting but it’s during the sleep cycle that things in your body have a chance to repair. The sleep needs to be somewhere from 9PM and on for this to happen.

And just eating less in general. So much of our life force goes into digestion.

Computational biology is a gift. I will be very fortunate if I can live like I'm in my 20s while in my 90s.

Almost a full house. Awesome. Andy knows his stuff and walks the talk. He's actually 68 yrs of age, so he knows what he's talking about and didn't just read this somewhere. ty 4 vid
