On this exciting and informative episode of Living Beyond 120, Dr. Jeff Gladden and Dr. Mark Young welcome guest Dr. Brian Berman, MD, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus of the University of Miami – Miller School of Medicine and also the president of the American Dermatological Association.

The show begins with a discussion on the increased diagnoses in the senior citizen communities of Alzheimer’s Disease and other neurological complications secondary to the government COVID-19 lockdowns.  They stress the importance of keeping in frequent contact with the seniors we love in order to decrease the impact of isolation and depression.

They also discuss the benefits of polypodium leucotomos - a natural extract that is packed with antioxidant properties that maintains your skin’s ability to protect itself against the aging.

The discussion then continues to the importance of skincare.  They explore how ultraviolet light – types A and B – affect the skin, not only on an anatomical level, but also on a DNA level.  They examine other effects of ultraviolet light, such as basil cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and actinic keratosis.
