What can we learn from a group of people in Ecuador with a rare genetic mutation that affects their growth, but also makes them less susceptible to age-related diseases like cancer and diabetes? 

We know that a balanced diet and exercise is key to a healthy life. But can a certain specialised diet guard us against disease and slow down the ageing process itself? And what have a group of people in Ecuador got to do with it?  Peter Bowes explores this intriguing subject in his latest feature for Mosaic. Join us as we speak to him about diet, ageing, and disease. 

Hosted by Dr Buddhini Samarasinghe. Recorded on Friday 15 April 2016.
