Public Policy And Aging Report

The latest Public Policy & Aging report is out, as reported by Medical News Today. It represents, for the most part, the views of the conversative side of biogerontology - those scientists and bioethicists who don't believe that radical life extension or interventions in the aging process are possible in the near future. The focus is on preventing age-related conditions and attacking the more dubious components of the "anti-aging" marketplace rather than extending the healthy human life span per se. Still, I think that we can take some items in the report as evidence that Aubrey de Grey is making progress in changing the minds of the biogerontological community.
