When asked how long they want to live, people often say no more than ten years above their country’s average lifespan. This, mind you, is in a world where aging is still inevitable; people know that they won’t be in top shape during those ten extra years, and yet, perhaps hoping that they might be…

Even with an increasing number of articles about aging and rejuvenation technologies in mass media, the general public’s lack of information remains a problem.
