Hi 👋 Prado here

4 bullets to dodge 👇

In a conversation between Tim Ferriss and Peter Attia (Co-founder and president of Nutritional Science Initiatives), he talks about 4 bullets to dodge.

“If you’re over 40 and don’t smoke, there’s about a 70 to 80% chance you’ll die from one of four diseases:

  • Heart disease,

  • Cerebrovascular disease,

  • Cancer, or

  • Neurodegenerative disease.”

There are two ways to live a long life.

  1. Delay Death

  2. Enhance life.

The diseases given above comes under delaying death.

“If you remember nothing else, remember this: If you’re in your 40s or beyond and you care about living longer, which immediately puts you in a selection bias category, there’s an 80% chance you’re going to die of one of those four diseases.
So any strategy toward increasing longevity has to be geared toward reducing the risk of those diseases as much as is humanly possible.”
- Peter Attia

I still haven’t completely figured out what are things I should do to reduce the risk of dying from one of those diseases. I’m constantly having interesting conversations with my Twitter friends who are doctors.

But if there is one thing I’m extremely sure is that If I exercise 3-5 a week, eat good food, be happy with what I have and cultivate relationships then I think I’ll be alright.

Sure, I can add stuff like meditation, yearly vacations, fasting, digital detox, etc.

Doing simple and mundane things consistently is extremely hard but necessary. We all got to tell stories to our grandkids. That’s the end goal

So if you smoke or drink, stop as soon as possible. Start small.

Imagine going into the 80s and throwing a party called 8 over 80 🚀 I’ll see you there ❤️
