Our Part in the Ageing Process
Wal Edwards in 102 years old this year, he lives with his wife and still drives to visit members of the community who need his support and his advocacy services. He is also a member of St Ives Rotary Club and has some very simple steps for contributions in life. Listen in to this wonderfully inspiring man as he shares the importance of community, selflessness and love in keeping him young.
Our other guest today is Dr Ross Grant Dr Grant is a Biochemical Pharmacologist in the School of Medical Sciences UNSW, Clinical Associate Professor at the Sydney Adventist Hospital Clinical School, University of Sydney and Head of the Australasian Research Institute. Dr Grant’s research focusses on characterizing, at the molecular level, how lifestyle and environment (eg emotional stress, diet and exercise) produce changes in the body’s biochemistry that lead toward either health or disease. Very much in keeping with what we talk about on this show all the time!
How much are we part of the health and wellness pathway or the pathway to pathway that leads towards disease
"Roughly 9 out of 10 will die from a lifestyle related disease" - gulp
