Dr. Greger is a sought-after lecturer and has presented at the Conference on World Affairs and the World Bank, testified before Congress, and was invited as an expert witness in Oprah Winfrey's defense in the infamous "meat defamation" trial. A graduate of Cornell University School of Agriculture and Tufts University School of Medicine, Dr. Greger is also an acclaimed author.

All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from the sales of his books and speaking honoraria are donated directly to charity.

 

TALK DESCRIPTION: The term "anti-aging" should be reserved for interventions that target one or more of the established aging mechanisms. Nonpharmacological means to target these Hallmarks of Aging will be discussed, common denominators of the diets and lifestyles of healthy, long-lived populations teased out, and dietary approaches will be explored to preserve bladder, brain, and bowel function as we age, along with bone and muscle mass, as well as tips to combat skin aging and vasomotor symptoms of menopause.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

- Identify diet and lifestyle interventions that may increase autophagy - a natural, self-preservation mechanism whereby the body removes damaged or dysfunctional parts of a cell and recycles other parts toward cellular repair.

- List the top five dietary factors identified by the Global Burden of Disease study as contributing to the greatest annual death toll

- Name nonpharmacological interventions that may help with BPH, constipation, sarcopenia, skin aging, urinary incontinence, and vasomotor menopausal symptoms
