Program Description: 
This week's program discussed from a scientific perspective how the effects of age can be delayed in humans. The effects of aging are ultimately traceable to irreparable damage to irreplaceable individual cells. Insights into reducing such damage were described based on laboratory experiments and analysis of accelerated aging. The lifestyles in places where many inhabitants retain their physical abilities into advanced years were also described. The lyrics in this week's program were written and set to music by the late Shah Abdul Karim and the songs were sung by Azmir Babu. This week's program was produced and presented by Sadequr Rahman.
