Very well-done summarization of what science currently knows about aging and possible anti-aging interventions, done by a panel of experts:

Don't know if it's already been posted.. if so please someone delete the topic.

It seems insteresting, but it seems devoted only to slowing aging, not reversing it. Many pages are devoted to age-slowing drugs, lifestyle, etc. and only 2 pages (p. 30-31) to gene therapy and stem cell therapy, and it seems that only for slowing aging (see p. 36). It doesn't talk about other SENS-like therapies, nor nanotechnology nor cryonics.

It seems like it was prepared by someone who wasn't very familiar with the field.  The really didn't seem to grasp the significance of damage repair strategies, as opposed to mere slowing of aging, as Antonio pointed out.  They devote ink to such things as resveratrol, statins, and DHEA.  That doesn't bode well...

Side question. Been out of the loop for a few years; how dead is resveratrol now?

It's fairly quiet.  The big thing now is C60 olive oil, which is kind of like what people hoped resveratrol would be, minus the hype.  It's not discussed in the media at all, but has the animal results that resveratrol never had, and has major effects in humans.

One of our members is doing another rat study regarding c60oo... http://www.longecity...e-3#entry701123 like the other one done by a member a little while back, it is not looking very promising. Two rats have died pretty much as one might normally expect. The older test done before by another member also yielded similar results. I have been using it for some time and cannot say it is doing anything note worthy (but nothing harmful either). While it may have uses such as boosting energy...personally my hopes are fading regarding c60oo as the original study claiming extended life, so far, has been unrepeatable. I have two more bottles left and am thinking I will not be re-ordering. Olive oil itself seems to be good for the body according to many articles, both older one's and newer ones. 

 

I think we are still up against a wall regarding life extension. Another of my hopes, telomeres. But...telomere studies seem to have slowed ...none of the companies involved with it are bringing anything more to the table in terms of proof their products work...just excuses while they profit. While telomeres may hold one key...at this point I would say the products available today don't really work the lock.

 

Here is an article out today discussing telomere's 

 

"There are hints in a new study that eating the much-lauded Mediterranean diet may help boost longevity.

Researchers found that the regimen -- rich in whole grains, vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, fish and olive oil -- appears to be associated with longer telomere length, which are indicators of slower aging.

 

Telomeres are located on the ends of chromosomes -- much like the plastic tips on the end of shoelaces. According to geneticists, telomeres prevent chromosomes from fraying and scrambling the genetic codes they contain. These bits of genetic material naturally shorten with age, but they tend to shorten more slowly in healthy people.

But of course, people on those diets don't live much longer than the norm...perhaps just a hair. Not the results we here are looking for. 

 

For now I think we might look better and be more healthy as we age...but live noticeably longer...I don't see it yet. Just my opinion and I remain hopeful. The clock...or clocks, in each of us keep ticking away...as of this moment the devil still has a date with me.
