Michael Rae Appointed as CR Society VP for Research



The CR Society International is pleased to announce that we have appointed Michael Rae as CR Society International's new Vice President for Research. Most of you will know Michael as a long-term CR practitioner and contributor to the List and Forum. Michael was also a member of the Society's Board for several years.

Michael is heavily steeped in the science of CR, as well as the broader field of aging research. As most of you know, he is also Science Writer at SENS Research Foundation, a biomedical charity developing a new class of therapies to remove and repair the cellular and molecular damage of aging.

To further the Society's mission of supporting the science and practice of human CR, Michael will be coordinating with researchers to help promote, initiate, and advance this new science. We are all aware of just how little is known about CR in humans, and how much less the general public knows. More research is needed to guide our own practice, to raise the public profile of CR, and, ultimately, to help inform the development of new anti-aging drugs that could help bring the promise of CR's benefits to everyone, whether they choose actually to practice CR or not -- and, finally, to determine, to the extent possible, whether or not CR itself works in humans to the degree seen in other species.

Sincerely, The CR Society International Board of Directors, October 2014

Welcome to the CR Society International!

Our goal is to provide guidance for better health and longer life based on evolving knowledge garnered from continuing research in various branches of science. Our information archives date back to our beginning in 1995 and can be searched by specific topics, author or range of dates. The archives record every email conversation held on our email lists. There you can search any subject related to nutrition, CR science, age related diseases, exercise and so much more. It is a wonderful research tool whether you just want to learn more about CR or have been a long term practitioner.

Another great aid is our DVD collection of previous CR Conferences sponsored by the CR Society. You can watch and learn directly from the CR researchers. You may be offered opportunities to become directly involved with these same researchers in ongoing human CR research as future funding become available.

Most of you reading this are about to enter a fascinating world of discovery. It is a journey that will take you from what you think you might know about food and health and disease and death and will lead you to the absolute certainty that the first directly affects the following three. You can assert control over your health and sense of well being. You can forestall and even avoid the onset of many age related diseases. Your death can be postponed for many healthy, vibrant years. All of this is based on irrefutable lab animal evidence and a growing body of human lab evidence.

Welcome again to what is likely the most important web site you will ever visit. Enjoy the journey.
