We have consulted with a number of industry leading healthcare professionals, scientists and experts in the antiaging field as to their specific “Theories of Aging”.
Links to these can be found below:
MICANS, MS, PharmB, Philip A
Phillip Micans, MS, PharmB, is the Editor-in-Chief of Aging Matters™ magazine, co-editor of the ‘Lifespan Medicine Journal’ and a founder and VP to the IAS Group. He is an expert in the food and nutrient field and has been heavily involved in the antiaging field for over 25 years.
This article looks at the theories and practice of antiaging medicine, looking at some of the most ‘forthright and treatable’ theories of aging as well as the biomarkers of aging.
Dr. Denham Harman
Denham Harman, also known as the “father” of the Free Radical Theory of Aging (FRTA), was an expert in the field of aging, particularly its cause and possible “cures”.
In this video from the 2nd Monaco Anti-Aging Conference & Expo, June 2001, Denham Harman, MD and Marios Kyriazis, MD discuss aspects of the FRTA including Carsonine, carnal DNA and testing for free radicals.
James South, MA
James South, MA, was regarded as one of the greatest authorities in the field on the topic of nutrition, due to his professional knowledge, training and personal experiences. In this article, Mr South looks at the Free Radical Theory of Aging as developed by Dr Harman, also known as “the father ” of the free radical theory of aging (FRTA) first proposed in November 1954.
Dr Harman’s FRTA looks at the causal power of free radicals and the role they play in the FRTA as well as the mitochondrial, membrane and cross-link theories of aging.
James South, MA
In this article, he discusses the Mitochondrial Theory of Aging (MTA) first developed by Denham Harman, the “father” of the free radical theory of aging (FRTA). This includes a look at the basics of Mitochondria, evidence to validate the MTA and the role that Vitamins, ALCAR and other chemicals have to play.
Dr Walter Pierpaoli, M.D., Ph.D. has a lifetime’s experience researching aging and related topics – he is recognised as being one of the world’s foremost antiaging physicians. He has spent over 50 years focusing on areas such as the impact the pineal gland has on human life and health, as well as the links between the neuroendocrine system and the immune system.
Dr Pierpaoli’s Rotational Theory of Aging is discussed in this interview with the Editor of the Aging Matters™ magazine, Phil Micans (PM), looking at areas such as the pineal gland, circadian rhythms and Melatonin.
Dr Dean Ward, M.D
Dr Dean Ward, M.D is a world-renowned expert in the antiaging field. He is extremely knowledgeable on the subject of the Neuroendocrine Theory of Aging, originally developed by Vladimir Dilman (Soviet scientist and physician).
In this video from the 2nd Monaco Anti-Aging Conference & Expo, June 2001, Dr Ward discusses the Neuroendocrine Theory of Aging, amongst other topics including the definition of aging and secrets of life extension.
Don Kleinsek, Ph.D
Don Kleinsek, Ph.D is an expert in the nutrition and aging fields, including caloric restriction. He is extremely knowledgeable on the Cross-Link Theory of Aging, originally created by Dr. Johan Bjorksten and has made advances in the fields of altered gene expression during cell senescence and cholesterol lowering agents.
In this video from the 2nd Monaco Anti-Aging Conference & Expo, June 2001, Don Kleinsek discusses the conceptual basis of the Membrane Hypothesis of Aging. Topics include crosslinking, it’s growth effects enzymatic crosslinking.
Dr Imre ZS Nagy, M.D
Dr Nagy is a retired Professor Emeritus at the University of Debrecen, Hungary. His research and expertise in the aging of cell membranes has spanned over 45 years.
Dr Nagy’s Membrane Hypothesis of Aging has its roots in the experimental gerontology research he conducted in the 1960s. The basic concept of MHA realistically represents the basic process of cell differentiation and aging.
Dr Imre ZS Nagy, M.D
In this video from the 3rd Monte Carlo Conference, Sept 2002, Dr Nagy discusses the conceptual basis of the Membrane Hypothesis of Aging. Topics include free radicals, genetics, brain aging and cellular organization.
