It's somewhat sad that journalists feel the need to play the "balanced reporting" game for longevity science. This Newsday article presents outrageous minority views - calls for the enforced continuation of mass death, suffering and disease - as though they have equal weight and merit as support for medical research and longer, healthier lives. Meanwhile, to quote aging researcher Richard Miller: "For every $100 [the National Institutes of Health] spends on research in biomedicine, exactly 6 cents are spent on research focusing on the mechanism of aging. If what we do in mice were applied to people, many 100-year-olds would be as vigorous as today's 75-year-olds." We need more support and more research!
