Every day, new innovations in technology and aging make the news. Whether it’s the way the science of epigenetics is redefining how and why we age or how big data, machine learning and artificial intelligence are taking the customer experience to the next level. This is where I share the disruptive new inventions that are helping us to live longer, healthier lives.

In the scientific journal Aging, Dr. Steve Horvath from UCLA’s school of genetics published his research on the discovery of predictive biomarkers for all-cause mortality: DNA Methylation and Mortality Prediction. The study involved the review and study of over 13,000 individuals, reviewing their epigenetic biomarkers and associated mortality rates. The study has been hailed as […]Read More
Ernst & Young recently published its 2016 Life Insurance and Annuity CEO Survey. The survey furthers the insurance innovation imperative espoused in the findings of its E&Y’s 2015 CEO Survey. The 2016 Survey tag line states: In search of innovation life insurers and annuity providers seek new ideas, technologies and ways to operate. The finding […]Read More
Biomathematician Dr. Steve Horvath has discovered a strikingly accurate way to measure human aging through epigenetic signatures. Nature, the international journal of science, profiled the discovery of Dr. Horvath in Biomarkers and Ageing: The Clock-Watcher.Read More
Recently, Dr. Horvath presented at Duke University about the Epigenetic Clock’s relation to aging and the technology’s ability to predict mortality! Title: Epigenetic clock analysis of race/ethnicity, sex, and chronic diseases Abstract: Epigenetic biomarkers of aging (the “epigenetic clock”) have the potential to address puzzling findings surrounding mortality rates and incidence of cardio-metabolic disease such […]Read More
I highly recommend this video of Dr. Bruce Lipton presenting at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. As he discusses the groundbreaking new discoveries that have been made regarding the interaction between mind, body, and the processes by which cells receive information, we learn that genes and DNA do not control our biology, but rather, DNA is controlled […]Read More
ThinkAdvisor recently published a great article by Warren S. Hersch that explores the evolution of life insurance underwriting. Read the full article below. LexisNexis shifts life insurance underwriting into high gear Compliance isn’t the only pet peeve of insurance agents and advisors. Another is underwriting. The rating of a life insurance policy, which can make a […]Read More
