A common concern in the community is that the FDA, the EMA, and other bodies, such as WHO, do not classify aging as a disease and that this poses a problem for developing therapies that target aging. However, this is not really as serious an issue as some people would suggest; today, we will have…

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a motion picture is surely worth at least tens of thousands of words, and thus, a video may be enormously more effective and persuasive than a written article trying to convey the exact same message. If you are an advocate of healthy life extension and have…

If you ask most people what they think about aging, they will shrug their shoulders and say that it is a natural process. With complete tranquility on their faces, they will agree that, yes, in old age, we are haunted by many diseases, but nothing can be done about it, so it makes no sense…
