“Stress, it turns out, turns on genes that make proteins that cause inflammation. Moderating stress — that is, happiness — turns off those same genes and turns on genes that make anti-inflammatory proteins — proteins that decrease inflammation.” 

“The most important things are posse and purpose: having 6 friends you’re vulnerable to every month, having a purpose in life, and a job with latitude.” 

“When you exercise, you change the genes that are on in your microbiome. When you’re stressed, you change which genes are on in your microbiome.” 

“I still think you should shoot for cholesterol less than 70 in your blood.” 

“The most important things you do for brain health are posse and purpose, that’s one. The second one is to add speed to your exercise, that is to stress your muscle; and the third is to add speed to your brain games.”
