Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon cane sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted

Science Can Add Years to Our Lives — But We Must Add Life to Our Years

Being able to extend life, of course, is a great success. But simply adding years of sickness, frailty and decline is not a very appealing prospect. Unfortunately, the progress we are making in terms of keeping people around longer is not always matched by advances in personal health and fitness.
