I’m listening to it, but really struggling with how much to believe. When, say, Matt Kaeberlein or Peter Attia say something, I trust that it’s a mostly clean representation of current knowledge. But with Sinclair I really struggle to parse out what is reproducible science and what is hyperbole and wishful thinking. Does anyone else have this hesitation?

Yes, i have followed David Sinclair for over 15 years (started following the Guarente lab back in the day…). None of the compounds David has focused on seems to have panned out… Resveratrol, Sirtris small molecules… and now the NAD/NMM stuff, that still hasn’t shown any significant life extension effects in third party labs (that I’m aware of).

So yes, his actual track record is not so great. Few of his results seem to be reproduceable.

I think the issue is that he typically has some sort of commercial interest in the outcome , so has a tendency to overplay the results (which is just human nature, and is the problem behind conflict of interest, even if they are identified - nothing nefarious).

I find his analysis in areas he doesn’t have a commercial interest to be much more accurate (i.e. on rapamycin).

Neither Peter Attia or Matt Kaeberlein have much if any financial interest in the most interesting small molecules / aging therapeutics that they focus on - which seems to be a good thing, and makes their information much less biased and skewed (in my opinion).

This seems to be a reasonable summary …
