In the future, we want people to live a long and healthy (mentally, physically and emotionally) life, in which their biological aging is slowed down and age-related diseases appear much later in life than they do now.

What obstacles stand in our way, as we strive to fulfill that future?

We ask you to share and discuss any and all obstacles to long life, whether natural or social, environmental or political, legal or ethical.

Examples could include age being culturally undervalued, an aging population putting stress on natural resources and government budgets, and innovations in life extension exacerbating inequality.

Welcome to the XPRIZE Longevity Community!

For much of the last century, Earth's population experienced tremendous increases in life expectancy. Is it possible to extend human lifespan even further, or reverse aging altogether?

In this initiative sponsored by Sergey Young, XPRIZE is studying the future of longevity to discover innovative and accessible ways to radically extend everyone's healthy lifespan.

Study links sleep-disordered breathing to age acceleration

    Thank you for sharing, @ymedan.

    Let me quote the opening paragraphs here:
    Increasing severity of sleep-disordered breathing and sleep disruption are associated with epigenetic age acceleration, according to preliminary results of a new study.

    Results show that each standard deviation increase in the apnea-hypopnea index, a measure of sleep-disordered breathing severity, was associated with the equivalent of 215 days of biological age acceleration. Similarly, each standard deviation increase in the arousal index, a measure of sleep disruption, was associated with the equivalent of 321 days of age acceleration.
