  1. I do wonder how "compressed morbidity" and increased healthspan will impact people's willingness to die. If Tom and Mike are right I would assume as we increase healthspan/compress morbidity and fewer people are living out their twilight years in chronic pain that the demand for anti-aging research will actually increase, since you have less of that "I'm in so much pain just end it already" mindset. In a different vein, and more CR-focused, as anyone read either James Clement's "The Switch" or Valter Longo's "The Longevity Diet"? I'm thinking of picking up the former based on a podcast interview with the author and was wondering if anyone has read both and can compare them? https://www.longevityadvice.com/longevity-books/
  2. Also, figured I'd avoid creating a new thread, but has anyone attended any of these longevity events or conferences? https://www.longevityadvice.com/best-longevity-conferences/ I was super excited to travel to some of them this year but then the pandemic hit and most of them are online now. Any ones that you would recommend?
  3. Thanks for that link! I also think I agree with Gordo in that IF and CR won't be enough, on their own, to get us living to 150, but are nice tools to add to the toolbox so we can hopefully make it long enough for the other breakthroughs to happen.
  4. I should add--of special relevance here--that my research has already got me on intermittent fasting based on the overwhelming evidence of its health benefits, and I'm looking forward to doing a deep dive into IF and CR for a future article, so any good resources I should be aware of please share!
  5. Thank you! It's very exciting and I'm really enjoying learning as much as I am about it; it's such an interesting space that I want to learn everything at once but I'm forcing myself to take a more methodological approach. And yeah we'd love to work with Lifespan.io on something, I love their rejuvenation roadmap (https://www.lifespan.io/road-maps/the-rejuvenation-roadmap/) and we link to it a couple times in the piece.
  6. We put this together as a primer for introducing people to human life extension. Do you think this works for giving someone new to the concept a good overview of the theories and science? https://www.longevityadvice.com/human-life-extension/ I learned quite a bit about CR and IF to put together the guide: did you know the longevity-promoting effects of moderate starvation (caloric restriction/fasting) have been known as far back as 1914, when a study showed that caloric restriction in mice inhibited tumor growth? (here's the study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2125200/)
