easier said than done but it's really important because it will it will get you and what do you do to reduce your stress to actually I I'm I meditate and I also tell myself don't do that you know I

sorry I'm so sorry Cynthia well I believe what I said about Brussels sprouts number one number two exercise number three taking time to be happy having good social bonds actually does increase your your lifespan education is correlated with lifespan staying active mentally I think is is is good I think diet is important all right personally I think you should just keep your eye on it they're all sorts of different kinds of diets I personally at a low glycemic index diet which may or may not be good for you there's that but I think it is but I don't know because there aren't very good studies really if it's very difficult to do studies of diet some people just hard on intermittent fasting is another thing that's become very popular diets ketogenic diets keep your eye on the literature people are starting to do real studies now scientific studies about these inspecting your food can be quite important so those are the things and also I think I just want to win one more little point about our breed with a reset I shouldn't do this but he said that we have a duty to predict how long it's going to take I think we don't have a duty to protect I think what we have a duty to do is to tell you what can happen in animals and that there are many different ways of slowing down aging in animals the really different from one another with enough time to go into all of them and we're animals right so maybe they'll work in us but they might not but to me that's the responsible thing to say and if they do it through thick right thank you very much Cynthia so I hope you've all

certainly the day or two after some of the quotes from some of the more radical members of Congress that's not the way to do it and this poisons the atmosphere as people said during his recent impeachment fiasco impeachment was supposed to be rare and now I fear that when Republicans get back in control of both houses of Congress and there's a democratic president they're going to go the same route and that that will polarize and poison the political atmosphere even more than it is now which is bad enough afterwards airs Saturdays at ten PM and Sundays at nine PM eastern and Pacific
