Norman Swan on living longer [Recorded at Montalto]
‘Exercise is like a vacuum cleaner for aging tissue and renews your tissue. You can look at the biopsy of muscle and your muscle is frail and old. After you’ve done weight training, your muscle is indistinguishable from a young person’s.’ – Norman Swan
With a career spanning over thirty years as a radio and television presenter, health journalist Norman Swan is a stalwart of the Australian media landscape.
Over lunch at Montalto, Swan discussed his career as a medical professional in the public eye and his latest book So You Want To Live Younger Longer?
Combining wellbeing and health tips with scientific insights, the book provides a practical and factual perspective, sans sensationalism, about how to live a healthy and positive life – at any age.
Join one of Australia’s most trusted medical voices for a conversation about lifelong health and communicating in a crisis. Hosted by Sally Warhaft, this conversation was presented in partnership with Montalto.
This event was recorded on Thursday 29 September 2022 at Montalto.
The bookseller for this event was Antipodes Bookshop and Gallery.
