Who among us wouldn’t want to live a long, fulfilling and healthy life? Our guest, Marta Zaraska, is joining us to share the latest scientific research on health—much of which reveals we are fixating on the wrong things. In truth, longevity isn’t necessarily the result of the latest miracle diets, super foods, supplements and/or exercise craze. 

Marta is a science journalist whose articles have appeared in The Washington Post, New Scientist, Scientific American, and The Atlantic, as well as other highly regarded periodicals. Her just published book, Growing Young: How Friendship, Optimism and Kindness Can Help You Live to 100 demonstrates that the so-called “soft” health drivers are even more important to our wellbeing than diet and exercise.

If you care about your health, the impact you have on others and making the world a better place, you’ll want to make sure you hear what Marta has to share!
