After happiness, love and miracles, the Doctor of the Nation is dedicated to the greatest topic of our time: time! What does time do to us, what do we do with our time. Why is the famous biological clock ticking, and how do we wind it up again? Everyone wants to grow old - but no one wants to be old. From Botox to brain jogging, from anti-ageing creams to the diet craze - Dr Eckart von Hirschhausen humorously brushes the promises of success of our time against the grain. Do married people live longer or does it just seem that way to them? Hirschhausen scientifically separates the nonsense from what actually makes life worth living. Life expectancy has increased, but so have expectations of life, of medicine, of eternal youth. Did you know that most people are happier at 60 than at 16? In the Neandertal, with a life expectancy of 30 years, puberty and midlife crisis took place at the same time. And today? Only we have the problem between student ID and senior citizen pass: What do I get a discount for now, please?
