Your partner may have every intention of being faithful but, without any warning, someone else comes along and turns it all upside down. What will you do?
In recent years, public and press interest in medicine to treat aging has been growing, and so more popular science and general interest articles - such as the one linked here - have been published. This is a new phase in the bootstrapping of longevity science, in which the media and the public conversation becomes more of a factor. Show More Summary
To what degree does the age-related decline of the immune system contribute to mortality and loss of longevity? How important is it in comparison to other aspects of aging? This study offers one useful data point, as the authors describe a genetic alteration that can boost the supply of new immune cells in old mice. Show More Summary
In this day and age, the biggest difference a billionaire can make to the near future is to fund medical research. The costs of that research are falling rapidly with progress across the board in biotechnology, and the foundation for transformative new medicine can be created with a fraction of one billionaire's net worth, if spent wisely.

Somewhere among the tiniest twists of our DNA, we are programmed to fear death, to avoid it at all costs and to live. To Live! To live is, borrowing from Star Trek, the prime directive. In addition to the practicality...
Researchers recently published evidence for variants in the FOXO3 gene to correlate with modestly reduced mortality due to cardiovascular disease. FOXO3 is one of the very few longevity-associated genes in which the statistical associations have been replicated in different human study populations. Show More Summary
