AGM and Muir Gray: Sod70! and Sod60! – a Guide to Living Well
Wednesday 17 February 2016
Many people worry about ageing and some try to find the elixir of life, now a big business in California, but ageing is a normal biological process which does not cause significant problems until the nineties. The problems we associate with old age are the result of three other processes – diseases caused by social and environmental factors, loss of fitness and the wrong attitude to life. All of these can be changed by people in their sixties, seventies and eighties and many of the beliefs about old age are myths. We can increase not only lifespan but also healthspan, reducing the duration of dependency on others but need to plan for a good death as well as a good life.

E-mail address list
We are setting up an e-mail address list so that we can make immediate contact with members.
We've put this together from addresses we already have but we're sure that some of these are wrong and others are missing.
If you received a message about the Trials of Galileo from us recently then you are already on this list.
If you prefer to be removed, or if you didn't receive this message and wish your e-mail address to be added, please email us giving your name and address, so that we can identify you on our database of members.
- Have you retired directly from the University or from a college position?
- Are you interested in going on trips in and around Oxford with like-minded people?
