I found this excellent video that I think could be very useful as an introduction to the concepts behind and the benefits of supporting scientific anti-aging efforts.

 

This is the sort of video that might have the power to really lay the foundations for a change in awareness and attitudes towards aging; showing that aging is not necessarily inevitable and that it is essentially a technical problem.

 

It has great production values, is narrated by Martha Stewart, features a bunch of highly credentialled interviewees, isn't too long (<15 mins), isnt too technical and gives a nice broad overview of the issues as well as introducing many of the key arguments for anti-aging science.

 

Some here will think the message is too conservative, but I think it hits what might be a perfect balance of accessability and palatability for the average person at the current point in history. I think it may also hit a sweet spot for policy makers.

 

This video could be a powerful tool for advocacy, and I urge everyone here to bookmark it and to share it:
