Public Presentation Of Healthy Life Extension Science

S. Jay Olshansky was kind enough to comment on one of my Fight Aging! posts critical of his mainstream media declarations on the prospects for healthy life extension. This extended into an educational three-way commentary between myself, Olshansky and Aubrey de Grey (proponent of the Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence initiative). We each have interesting differences of opinion on this topic - differences that I feel have a material effect on the prospects for funding in rejuvenative research. If you take an interest in the way in which science, activism, funding, the mainstream media and healthy life extension interact, I suggest that you take a look.
