Hi, Dr. Meredith Warner here –
I am a board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon who is passionate about helping you live well mentally, physically, and emotionally.
Today, about 16% of the US population is over the age of 65. This will increase to about 21% by 2035. This means that 1 in 5 will be Medicare age. In 1960, one could expect to live until age 79. Now, one can expect to live until age 85 – meaning that if you are 75 today, you can expect to live until the age of 87.
Since we are expected to live to the age of 87, would it not be nice if we aged vibrantly and gracefully?
The Science Behind Aging Gracefully
At the Well Theory, we are concerned with both how to live longer and how to live better.
Humans seemed to have plateaued in terms of aging to the mid-80s. That is, we can’t seem to get into the 90s and 100s without difficulty.
There is a lot of work being done in anti-aging. Most of this work comes from companies like The Well Theory in terms of product development and research. But now, ‘big-pharma’ and their lobbyists want to become involve in the anti-aging movement.
Previously, this was ignored by the larger corporations. Today, there is research being done into patented compounds that isolate single molecules for mass-manufacturing. Rapamycin compounds, sirtuins, senolytics and even metformin are being looked to for abilities to help us age longer.
Although Mark Zuckerberg has stated that ‘young people are smarter’ than older ones, the data does not support this. Most successful start-ups are actually started by those who are middle-aged. Hopefully, a longer and better life will let them reap the rewards of their considerable efforts.
