Looking Forward to Anti-Aging Pills

To the press, it's not real medicine unless it's in a pill. The first real anti-aging treatments will more likely focus on stem cell and regenerative medicine rather than compounds you can swallow. Still, this article from the New York Times is a very good overview of current efforts to develop and market working healthy life extension treatments. It's worth noting the problems that exist due to the historical association of life extension and "anti-aging" with quacks and fraudsters: something that, unfortunately, still continues today.
