More on Anti-Aging Confusion

Following up on Monday's article on deep divisions between merchants, doctors and researchers, here's another good one from the Seattle Times. Quotable quote from the NIA: "Wait for research that demonstrates this is safe and effective." (Of course, if they actually funded a decent amount of aging and anti-aging research, we wouldn't all be waiting around...) I'm a late adopter, as you all know. I'm unwilling to try strategies to extend my healthy life if they have not been proven and proven again by reputable scientists. So far, only calorie restriction, good diet, modest supplementation, modest exercise and fighting to support medical research pass that test.
