1955. That’s the year, Suresh Rattan finds on his birth certificate. At this age physical decline knocks on everybody’s door, but he doesn’t feel old. As a matter of fact he feels like a 20-years-younger spring chicken – and he also knows why. He is a specialist in ageing and associate professor at Aarhus University.

Thanks to evolution we can’t see ourselves as older than 45, and seen from a biological point of view we might as well just take our last breath after we have raised a couple of faithful reproductions of ourselves. For all those of us who would like to live a little longer than that, Suresh has come up with a formula for eternal life. Theoretically, at least. Among other things this involves hot spices, exercise and activation of our grey matter.
