Abstract

•The factors best demonstrated to delay aging are fruit and vegetables, exercise, not smoking, drinking one or two glasses of alcohol daily, and fish consumption.•Vitamin D replacement, in persons with low 25[OH] vitamin D levels, decreases hip fractures, improves muscle strength, enhances function, and decreases mortality.•Antiaging medicine has been hijacked by charlatans who promote unproven or dangerous remedies to a naïve aging public.•Too often animal studies that produce longevity are directly ap-plied to humans before appropriate clinical trials have been carried out.•There is no evidence that hormones or megadoses of vitamins prolong life.•Numerous products of varying quality are available to slow -photoaging and remove skin blemishes.
