Notice: Please do NOT enrol on this course on impulse, thinking you might watch it later. Maybe show an interest on impulse, yes, but before you enrol, watch the Preview videos, read the Course Description and then make a decision. If you then enrol then please start the course as soon as possible. Watch the lectures, look at the workbooks and join in the discussions. Joining my courses is a serious business and I want you to get the most out of your study – but I also want you to enjoy the course.
That is why I am asking that you only enrol because you really want to and that you start the course intending to make full use of all the resources.
You will be very welcome.
This is a very very very unusual course.
I started making a course about the key factors leading to a longer life. It was only when I had looked at various studies and read about the Blue Zones that I received an email from someone who is actually ON one of my courses. He – Fernando – asked about this course – extending your life – and then pointed out that his grandfather was 103 – still alive – and was living in a country where the life expectancy is (for male) 70.
Venezuela – a country where millions are fleeing and thousands are dying owing to the deteriorating conditions.
Fernando told me he was coming to Oxford (UK) and would I like to make a course about ageing, using him for anecdotal evidence?
I agreed and this course is the result.
I go through nine factors that affect longevity and see - with a sample size of 1 - whether they are followed by Fernando's Grandfather.
Throughout the course I refer - a lot - to published studies as well as anecdotal evidence.
