The Prospects that Emerging Science Offers Us for Long Healthy Lifespans – PowerPoint presentation for non-scientists

By Vince Giuliano

I rarely hesitate to talk about exciting research developments reported in this blog with my friends.  However, only a few people  in our local community of Wayland Massachusetts have known about the blog or our work on the aging sciences.    A few of my friends have suggested that I do a presentation on our work for the benefit of the local community. I gave such a talk on October 7, 2014 on The Prospects that Emerging Science Offers Us for Long Healthy Lifespans. The talk was the first in a 2014 seasonal series of lectures, “The Great Presenter Series” sponsored by the Wayland Public Library.

The PowerPoint presentation for that talk can be downloaded by clicking on the links that follow.  I had to divide the presentation into two parts so it could be handled by the blog software. You can download both parts and view them with your own versions of Microsoft PowerPoint or Open Office

Longhealhylife10-2-14PT1  Overview on the sciences of aging

Longhealhylife10-2-14PT2 Actions and interventions for extending healthspan and lifespans  – Focus on the personal and practical

Because most members of the Wayland library audience could not be presumed to have a biology science background, I strove to keep the presentation relatively non-technical and general.  The talk was well-attended and well-received, and followed by a long and lively discussion period.  Regular readers of this blog might find the presentation useful for kicking off discussions with their own non-scientist friends about some of the key facts relating to the longevity sciences and easy-to-apply interventions that offer the possibility of longer than average lifespans for those that pursue them.




About Vince Giuliano

Being a follower, connoisseur, and interpreter of longevity research is my latest career. I have been at this part-time for well over a decade, and in 2007 this became my mainline activity. In earlier reincarnations of my career. I was founding dean of a graduate school and a university professor at the State University of New York, a senior consultant working in a variety of fields at Arthur D. Little, Inc., Chief Scientist and C00 of Mirror Systems, a software company, and an international Internet consultant. I got off the ground with one of the earliest PhD's from Harvard in a field later to become known as computer science. Because there was no academic field of computer science at the time, to get through I had to qualify myself in hard sciences, so my studies focused heavily on quantum physics. In various ways I contributed to the Computer Revolution starting in the 1950s and the Internet Revolution starting in the late 1980s. I am now engaged in doing the same for The Longevity Revolution. I have published something like 200 books and papers as well as over 430 substantive.entries in this blog, and have enjoyed various periods of notoriety. If you do a Google search on Vincent E. Giuliano, most if not all of the entries on the first few pages that come up will be ones relating to me. I have a general writings site at and an extensive site of my art at Please note that I have recently changed my mailbox to

    Vince, and chance you could provide the slide in pdf format for those of use who do not have PowerPoint? And do you know if this was filmed for possible uploading to YouTube? I checked, but only saw an older presentation.

    thanks for your great work.

    Very enjoyable presentation. A couple of questions:

    –Why the picture of Freud next on the page quoting Nietzsche? Don’t get the connection.

    –I am not convinced that conventional wisdom on saturated fat is anything close to correct, and the evidence now seems to be driving the other way; I’d be interested in your thoughts.

    (btw to peterz54: Microsoft distributes PowerPoint Viewer for free…)
