All in all our relationship with aging leaves much to be desired. A majority of the public thinks of aging as inevitable and even desirable, a fact of life written in stone rather than a medical condition that may one day be curable. Comparatively few people know that the effects of aging can be very modestly slowed by lifestyle choices such as calorie restriction, just as is the case for many other medical conditions. While this is beginning to change, ongoing research aimed at repairing known types of age-related cellular damage in order to produce true rejuvenation, the prevention and reversal of frailty and disability in the old, does not receive the widespread publicity and support it deserves.

History

Fight Aging! began as a longevity science and advocacy blog in 2004, an outgrowth of a similar initiative called the Longevity Meme that ran as a news service and online resource from 2001 to 2011. Fight Aging! continues in its stead. Both projects originate with Reason, a patient advocate with a long-standing interest in the development of health- and longevity-enhancing medical technologies.

Mission

The Fight Aging! mission remains the same as it was at the outset: to encourage the development of medical technologies, lifestyles, and other means that will help people live comfortably, healthily, and capably for as long as they desire, well beyond the current limits of mortality.

Fight Aging! exists to help ensure that initiatives with a good shot at greatly extending healthy human longevity become well known, supported, and accepted throughout the world. To this end, Fight Aging! publishes material intended to publicize, educate, and raise awareness of progress in longevity science, as well as the potential offered by future research. These are activities that form a vital step on the road towards far healthier, far longer lives for all.

Fight Aging! also from time to time supports fundraising initiatives that expand relevant scientific research and related advocacy programs, such as the work of the Methuselah Foundation and SENS Research Foundation.

Immediate Aims

Fight Aging! pursues the following goals at the present time: 1) introduce more people to the present cutting edge of longevity science and the associated community of researchers, advocates, and supporters; 2) make it easier to find useful, reputable, scientific information on efforts and means to extend healthy life span; and 3) drive more funding into longevity research and the development of rejuvenation biotechnology.

Until longevity research and advocacy movements become louder, more active, and more mainstream, progress in developing the means to postpone and reverse the biological damage of aging will continue to be frustratingly slow. A great deal of work remains to be accomplished.

Financial Relationships

Where Fight Aging! has established relationships with other organizations, these relationships exist because support for their efforts will help speed progress towards the realization of rejuvenation therapies.
