How the World Defeats Aging by 2035 – Aubrey de Grey Interview

Aubrey de Grey has been the leading voice for antiaging, aging reversal and aging damage repair for over twenty years. He founded the SENS non-profit (Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence (SENS). There have been six antiaging companies that have been directly spun out of SENS. SENS is researching the hardest problems related to fixing aging …

Scientific Progress to Radical Antiaging, Aubrey Sees 50+% of Longevity Escape Velocity by 2035

Antiaging expert Aubrey de Grey says antiaging science is considerably closer to robust mouse rejuvenation than we were 10 years ago and the gap between the achievement of robust mouse rejuvenation and the achievement of robust human rejuvenation is also coming down quite fast. Aubrey de Grey is the co-founder of the SENS research foundation …

US Life Expectancy Has Biggest Drop Since WW2

In the first half of 2020, life expectancy at birth for the total U.S. population was 77.8 years, declining by 1.0 year from 78.8 in 2019 according to the CDC. There has not been a full-year drop in life expectancy in the US since WW2. The pandemic still continues so there has been a continuing …

Comparing the Life Extension Era with the Pre-Life Extension Era

Life extension has been happening for over 100 years. It doubled in the UK from 40 years to 80 years from 1850 to 2015. It has almost tripled in India from 24 to 69 from 1920 to 2015. An article written by Matthew Bacher on increasing life expectancy is like many other articles that do …

Life Extension Reporter Hates Life and Work

There is an article at Value Walk that reports on chinese researchers using CRISPR gene editing to extend the lives of mice by 25%. Matthew Bacher, the writer of the Value Walk article then discussed a Lancet article from 2018 that forecasted life expectancy in 35 industrial countries would increase by 4 years by 2030. …

Rapid Aging Reversal Achieved With Human Cells

Transient reprogramming, mediated by transient expression of mRNAs, promotes a rapid reversal of both cellular aging and of epigenetic clock in human fibroblasts and endothelial cells, reduces the inflammatory profile in human chondrocytes, and restores youthful regenerative response to aged, human muscle stem cells, in each case without abolishing cellular identity. Old human cells can …

Rapamycin and Two Other Drugs Extends Lifespan Twice As Much As Any Other Drug Combo

A triple drug combination has been used to extend the lifespan of fruit flies by 48% in a new study led by UCL and the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Aging. The three drugs are all already in use as medical treatments: lithium as a mood stabilizer, trametinib as a cancer treatment and rapamycin …
