InfoAging On Anti-Aging Medicine

InfoAging presents a carefully conservative take on aging and longevity research. Given this, it is interesting to see the way in which this organization presents the ongoing dispute between mainstream gerontologists and factions in the anti-aging marketplace: the focus in their eyes is very much on calls for increased aging research funding from some of the most conservative gerontologists. To quote Leonard Hayflick (who believes - in contrast to folks like Aubrey de Grey - that aging cannot be cured): "Most physicians believe that the greatest risk factor for age-associated disease is the fundamental aging process. Yet research on this - the greatest risk factor for all of the leading causes of death - is virtually ignored."
