Summary
What makes our bodies age has long been a scientific mystery. This program looks at discoveries suggesting that the aging process can be manipulated, if not completely switched off. Examining the role of diet, the film profiles a married couple who have maintained a low-calorie regimen for 16 years - with results that are open to interpretation - as well as two scientists who have largely debunked the myth of oxidative stress. Other researchers include Dr. David Sinclair of Harvard Medical School, discoverer of the molecule resveratrol, which has been found to have life-prolonging effects in mice. Progeria, or rapid-aging disease, and age as a "state of mind" are also investigated
