Business Jumps on the Youth Bandwagon

Red Herring is back on its feet, and talking about the near future market for real, working anti-aging therapies. Note that most of what passes for "anti-aging" in the marketplace these days is cosmetics, junk, nonsense, scams and adventurous marketing - but a small core of new ventures are working on real medicine that could extend the healthy human lifespan. The most interesting thing to take away from this article is that business commentators are now seeing that there is a bandwagon, and can separate the old, bad anti-aging market from the new, real anti-aging market. This bodes well for venture funding in the future.
