Aging and dietary supplements - correcting some myths. With Michael C Price.

Venue: Room 416, Birkbeck College, Torrington Square, London WC1E 7HX
Date: Sunday 28th March 2010
Time: 2pm-4pm

About the talk:

This talk will review where we are (and aren't) with respect to
understanding aging. It will cover theories of aging, and the (largely
failed) promises of gerontologists and immortalists, past and present.
It will then make some suggestions for what we can do now - including
a discussion of which dietary supplements may work, which may not, and
why dietary supplements are generally discredited.

About the speaker:

Michael Price trained as a physicist and has a BSc and MSc from
Imperial College, London, where he studied unified field theories. He
has been involved in UK cryonics, extropianism and futurism for 30
years.

There's no charge to attend this meeting, and everyone is welcome.

There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and to make comments.

Discussion will continue after the event, in a nearby pub, for those
who are able to stay.

** Why not join some of the Extrobritannia regulars for a drink and/or
light lunch beforehand, any time after 12.30pm, in The Marlborough
Arms, 36 Torrington Place, London WC1E 7HJ. To find us, look out for a
table where there's a copy of the Stephen Hall's book "Merchants of
immortality: chasing the dream of human life extension" displayed.

** About the venue:

Room 416 is on the fourth floor (via the lift near reception) in the
main Birkbeck College building, in Torrington Square (which is a
pedestrian-only square). Torrington Square is about 10 minutes walk
from either Russell Square or Goodge St tube stations.

Reminder:

As a break with recent custom, this Extrobritannia meeting is
happening on a Sunday, rather than on a Saturday.
