A press release from Yahoo! News describes some new aging science. Andrzej Bartke, respected in the field, says, "The theory of aging developed by Drs. Bowen and Atwood is striking in its novelty ... The authors use this new and different way of looking at endocrine changes that accompany aging to suggest novel therapeutic interventions." This work is apparently in the context of Alzheimer's treatment and early drug trials at Voyager Pharmaceuticals - we shall see where it all goes in due course. An outgrowth in the number of theories of aging (such as the reliability theory of Leonid Gavrilov) is fine in my book: It shows that scientists are working on the problem.
