Sara2 Posted April 14, 2013 Report Share Posted April 14, 2013 I'm posting this here too, since the old email list is not used by some people reading/posting here. J.W. about getting "research info". > Surely we have enough scientists here to do that? > If we don't keep secrets until some later date? Paul: (in a different recent post on the email list about sharing research info...) All the CRONA participants received their results more than a year ago. We were asked not to share our results until the paper was published. The same is true for the 2009 genetic testing done by WUSTL in 2009. People who attended the Las Vegas CR conference have seen the results explained by Dr. Fontana, but he has not published any of it. He expressly asked us not to film or report on his presentation. We have been in contact with both researchers several times to encourage publication. The soon-to-be-launched DNA HACR study is organized differently. Every serious long-term calorie restrictor who is a member of the CR Society and/or livingthecrway.com can participate. Participating researchers will have short limits on deliberation time -- a maximum of months. Further every CR participant will have their results within a short time after testing. And as the years roll by they will be able to compare their results to others without waiting a long time. The reason for research is to gain insights on how to slow aging. We cannot wait. ========================== S2: I want to suggest that all past CR Society (International) conference presentations (two years & older) be put on youtube or sold through iTunes for .99cents each. This will allow any presenter ample time to publish any new findings with ongoing research within 2 years, and there is still going to be a strong attendance incentive to get the latest information about CRon at the conference too. For any research that's not going to be completed within 2 years or that will be published beyond 2 years from the date of presentation, then simply get a confidentiality agreement for CRSI members to sign and get exclusive access to the presentation until publication. These exclusive presentations would be be sold on DVD for a higher price (not downloaded) after signing the "confidentiality agreement" until the research person publishes their research. (Once published then the presentation can be offered for iTunes or youtube.) Using a protocol similar to the above ideas should give researchers protection of their data with ongoing research before publication, but, also, share exclusively with CRSI members with confidentiality too. For long-term research also require the researchers to give interim reports by specific dates, so no one has to wait for important health data that may be useful now or before the study finishes. I agree with Paul that we cannot wait. The Internet offers tremendous opportunity for CRSI to share research information for very low-cost. To spread "the word" we should be using youtube & iTunes to make it free/cheap to learn. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
