Heart disease rate about only 76% of that of non-diabetics, overall cancer rate 94% etc. And this is a review of all quality trials combined (free full text).

 

Why aren't everyone who wants to combat aging on this?

 

What age should you start on this?

 

Market price / mo, china sourced price?

Because it's a prescription used to treat diabetes. Not many doctors will prescribe this for longevity.

I’m a non diabetic and I’ve been taking metformin for 6-7 years. Life Extension recommended that all middle aged adults should consider taking it years ago.
One should review their research before taking it.

Unfortunately, there are a series of related flaws in the underlying studies in this report — notably, various time-related biases of the kind embedded in this widely-cited study, and other similar ones ("immortal time bias," "time-lagging bias," and "time-window bias" (notable in this study and most of those in the meta-analysis)), as well as prevalent user bias.

Things are not as black and white as you present...

 

I've given a peek to some of these stuff... of course presenting the honored critiquing professor that we must emphasise has such a high social status...

An elephant in the room question: If the primary action of metaformin is to reduce high glucose sugar levels and your blood sugar levels are normal, exactly what do you expect metformin to achieve?

If metaformin is having some other effect, what is it?

Complex I inhibitor, AMPK activator, but nobody knows for sure. You could look at Attia’s podcast with Nir Barzilai for more information
