Luigi Fontana: Physician and longevity scientist

The art and science of aging well is a complex business - a nuanced melding of a finely tuned diet, essential exercise and a healthy mind. For over twenty years, Prof. Luigi Fontana has been studying the lifestyle regimes that could help us live a longer, healthier life. 

One of the world’s leading experts in the field of human longevity, Dr. Fontana, a physician and professor of medicine and nutrition at the University of Sydney, takes a pragmatic approach to the aging process, railing against aspirations to live an excessively long life. 

The author of ground-breaking research on fasting and nutrition, he explores the wider issues involved in the aging process in a new book, The Path to Longevity: The Secrets to Living a Long, Happy, Healthy Life. In this LLAMA podcast interview, with Peter Bowes, Prof. Fontana argues that medical systems based on treating sick people should be replaced by a more holistic approach to the human body. He also philosophizes about life's "beautiful journey.”
