What are the costs of anti-research policies pursued by Western governments over the past five years? What are the results of a five year delay in bringing the first (or the last) regenerative therapies for age-related conditions to market? Read my opinions on the subject at the Fight Aging! blog. The bottom line is, as always, that shaping the future is in our hands. Will medical research be funded, supported and widely understood? Will cures be developed for the degenerative conditions of aging? Will we live longer, healthier lives? We decide, through our actions, the answers to these questions.
