WATCH Episode 2 NOW: A User's Guide to Cheating Death: THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH with Prof Tim Caulf
Health law expert, author, CNTRP Core 1 Lead and debunker-extraordinaire Prof. Timothy Caulfield hosts “A User’s Guide to Cheating Death”, a new documentary series that casts light on increasingly controversial procedures, diets and revived ancient therapies that are being sought by people desperate to dramatically alter their bodies or radically improve their health, and the booming industries that are more than happy to accept their business. Prof Caulfield dives deep into the science, and the social issues behind today’s cutting edge health trends in order to separate the truly good advice from the excess of high-priced placebos.
In the second episode, Prof Caulfield focuses on THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH.
Youth may be wasted on the young, but luckily, you can buy it back. People are using everything from face-lifts to second skin tech to keep their youthful advantage. However, with the many unproven therapies on the market, how many actually work? This episode examines our evolutionary leanings toward finding youth appealing and pop-cultural portrayals of youth, before diving head-on into the strange, fascinating and unregulated world of the anti-aging industry. “A User’s Guide to Cheating Death” is in search of the truth for those who try to defy aging.
