Epigenetics of Aging

Researchers continue to hunt for genetic mutations that contribute to or cause diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disorders and psychiatric problems. Biologist Stephen Baylin, M.D., decodes what epigenetics — the result of external factors that can modify your DNA — can reveal about diseases often encountered in aging.

Mindfulness

The practice of staying present in the moment benefits individuals by lowering chronic stress, anxiety blood pressure and pain intensity while also improving focus, memory and even immune function. Learn how to tap into the power of mindfulness with clinical psychologist Neda Gould, Ph.D.

Rheumatologist Dana DiRenzo explains the process of inflammation, its causes and symptoms, and efforts to lessen its affects.
