The Rift Between Science and Business

The Courier and Press prints an interesting overview of the deep rift between the world of science and the world of business - between anti-aging science and "anti-aging" marketing. As the article points out, "aging research has been slow to gain credibility, in part, because scientists have had to counter a history of charlatanism and profiteering that goes back centuries." The billion dollar "anti-aging" business is aggressive marketing of health products at one end, and outright fraud at the other...and all of it makes legitimate scientific research in the fight against aging that much harder.
