Dietary Components and Healthspan: Honoring the Work of Bruce Ames

There are many trajectories to living out the years of your life. While some factors are not under your control, many of them are. Discoveries over the last few decades have underscored the vital role of diet in extending the healthspan – living more years of your life free of disease and disability.

In this session, we honor the work of Dr. Bruce Ames on improving our knowledge of key mechanisms involved in aging, and nutrients that impact heathy aging. Dr. Ames has long been a champion for improve healthspan through dietary factors – both essential micronutrients and non-essential phytochemicals and bioactives to improve our health as we age.

As we are in the midst of celebrating our 25th year of the Linus Pauling Institute coming to Oregon State University, the Institute is making this webinar series free to all registrants.
