The transcript of the latest SAGE Crossroads webcast, a discussion on the war over anti-aging medicine, is now online. In essence, the quackery, false claims and over the top marketing associated with much of the commercial "anti-aging" industry has damaged the legitimate, scientific fight against aging. Funding for meaningful research rests on public opinion and public understanding of the near time possibilities of healthy life extension. Large segments of the commercial "anti-aging" industry have muddied the waters, engaged in unethical practices and generally made life harder for the rest of us. Unless this problem is overcome, we will all suffer the consequences: less funding, less research, less progress, shorter and more unhealthy lives.
