Constructive Thoughts on Raising Awareness
Permalink | View Comments (0) | Post Comment | | Posted by Reason

As we continue to raise awareness and support for healthy life extension science, it is important to expand the public dialog. Some thoughts from researcher Attila Chordash: "One strategy (call it Life Extension Gets Personal) to raise awareness for the idea and technology of healthy life extension is to publicly encourage life extension 'coming outs' on behalf of mainstream celebrities ... As a first target Craig Venter, the genomics pioneer seemed unconventional and free minded enough to approach with the idea of a LE blogterview. On the other hand I found definite signs of his interest in longevity and life extension suggesting that if Craig Venter had been given a technological-medical chance to extend his healthy lifespan significantly he would definitely not like to die due to accumulating functional declines associated with aging within the next, say hundred years. Maybe I am wrong here, maybe I am not but to figure this situation out I translated these signs into the following blogterview questions and tried to contact him in early December, 2007. So far I reached only his nice and diplomatic PR agent, who said that maybe we have a chance to get the blogterview done in the near future." Making this sort of modest effort is more than most people are doing - an excellent initiative.
