• Aging Well Suzuki Style
    David Suzuki is eighty-three. That’s three years beyond the life expectancy for the average Canadian
    male. So he’s ahead of the game. At the same time, he’s the first to admit that he’s officially old. He’s
    also quick to point out that, “Aging is not a disease. It’s just a natural part of life.” While everyone would
    like to have a long life span, David Suzuki is more interested in a longer health span. In other words he
    wants to stay as healthy as possible for as long as possible.
    So he’s going on a journey to discover if he’s still alive and kicking because of the choices he’s made or, if
    he’s just been lucky to have inherited good genes. Along the way he meets scientists who put him
    through a battery of tests. “I’m hoping to find out what’s working, what’s not, what I can do, and
    probably should have done to age well.”
