Prevention is a way of life

Age is just a number. Prevention is a way of life.

For a second consecutive year the congress “Youth in the Middle Age” took place successfully on March 30, 2019 in Athens, Greece. The congress was open for the Greek general public and it was organized by the Greek Academy of Anti-aging based on an idea of the journalist-writer Anna-Maria Papiri. The core message of the Congress was ¨Prevention is a way of life¨.

On Saturday, March 30, 2019, at the N.J.V. Athens Plaza Hotel, in Athens, more than 1100 men and women visited from 10.30 am until 6.30 pm the Congress and had the opportunity to attend lectures of distinguished scientists, participate in workshops and visit the exposition area. There was double the number of visitors than last year which demonstrated the public’s need for valid, accurate and timely information regarding scientific anti-aging methods. Congress sent out the message that “youth is a way of life.”

The multifactorial nature of a healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Valentini Konstantinidou explained the multifactorial nature of a healthy lifestyle. She describes that healthy lifestyle includes not only absolute measurable concepts, such as diet, exercise, and sleep but also feelings of well-being, joy, and happiness; although they are not measured by the same criteria, they are capable of determining the quality of our life and its longevity.

Announcing the nutrigenetic results of her research, Dr. Konstantinidou highlighted the beneficial effects of extra virgin olive oil consumption in the context of the traditional Mediterranean diet, such as changing the expression of genes associated with inflammation.
