In this special episode of Bulletproof Radio, microbiologist and geneticist David Sinclair, Ph.D., gives a thoroughly researched perspective on the coronavirus, plus concrete steps you can take and lifestyle changes you can make to potentially lower your own risk.
We cover food, fasting and fitness. A range of supplements. The research behind and benefits of a vaccine, the red tape of regulation, availability of home test kits, and much more.
David is a professor in the department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and founding director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biological Mechanisms of Aging at Harvard. He’s best known for his extensive research on lifespan extension and treatment of diseases for aging. He’s an award-winning researcher whose work on resveratrol, NAD, and reprogramming to reverse aging have been widely hailed as major scientific breakthroughs.
“Before this [coronavirus] happened, it was pretty obvious to me as someone who was already working in a company that was detecting viruses that these things were going to attack,” David says.
Listen on for an in-depth discussion of recent coronavirus research and the COVID-19 strain that’s making its way around the world.
