Issue 5 of the Longevity Bulletin is now available on the research section of our website. The latest issue includes a thought-provoking piece by Ross Matthews, consultant at Punter Southall, on gender and longevity. His article considers a number of factors that affect longevity - from cigarettes, alcohol and obesity to telomeres and testosterone. With the IFoA Mortality and Longevity Symposium in Birmingham on 15-17 September, this issue of the bulletin offers members a sample of some of the research in the longevity and mortality area that can be applied to our day-to-day work.
