"Why to treat aging as a disease and how to prolong your healthspan in the office"

Specialized in geriatrics and internal medicine, Andrea Maier investigates age related diseases and prolonging healthspan. She states that aging is actually a disease and we already should be capable to become 130 years old. A major barrier to achieve this, is our lifestyle. 70% of a long life is in our own hands, so what can business professionals with long hours in an office, behind a computers and high demanding jobs do for themselves and their teams?
