The quest for an elixir of youth is never-ending. Yet there are surprising predictors linked to longer and more enjoyable lives: how much one earns, how healthy one is and how one spends one’s time. Neuroscientist Daniel Glaser discusses the joys and injustices of growing old with health equity expert Michael Marmot and the authors of two new books on ageing, Lynne Segal and Anne Karpf.
