Hindustan Times feautred Valter Longo, who spoke during a session on the third day of the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit. He said that nutrition may be the key factor that determines whether or not we develop age-related diseases. “We can argue, based on over 100 years of research, that nutrition is by far the most powerful way to alter how fast we age, and also alter whether we will develop age-related disease like diabetes, cancer, cardiological and neurodegenerative diseases,” he said, adding that reversing ageing and controlling weight is crucial for saving lives not only from dozens of disease, but also from Covid-19.
