The viability of living to 120 and beyond: addressing some of the optimistic theories [4:45]

Why do you think it’s important to act and live like we might only get to 90-years-old? 

Why does Peter not have confidence in biohacking your way to 120, 150, 180? 

There are things about us, as we age, that we have the capacity to reduce the rate of change on (we can slow them down), but he’s seen no real evidence that we can reverse them in a meaningful way 

So then what would you have to believe? 

Why does all of this matter? 

When you were talking early on about diseases, were those diseases what you call the four horsemen from your book? 

If you manage to not die of heart disease, cancer or neurodegeneration, dementia, and you’re willing to train really hard, Peter thinks there’s a path to be physically robust as a centenarian

Nick’s takeaway

I think that taking all of the steps that I talk about in the book could seriously add a decade to life.”‒ Peter Attia 

What is more interesting and more important (whether your adding 5, 7, or 10 years to your lifespan), is reducing/compressing the period of morbidity late in life 

What Peter feels like he has more control over when he’s in his marginal decade:

Those are the things we want to relentlessly fixate on, because Peter thinks most people would rather live to 90 and die of a heart attack while swimming in the ocean (but otherwise be in remarkable shape) than live to 120 and spend the last 30 years unable to do much 

The potential of mTOR inhibition as a mid-life intervention, and longevity potential for the next generation [13:30]

What are a few of those things that could help someone even at age 50 live longer?
