  1. without causal proof then growing telemers is like keeping your skin healthy to prevent death.
    we are not the first generation to think of this. proof rather than belief pls.

  2. Unity's anti-senescent cell approach is very promising. Calico, sadly, is on the wrong track and unlikely to deliver. I don't think the mouse telomerase results will translate to humans. The People Unlimited / Raadfest guys are kinda cringey.

  3. I find the proponents of those who find death & perpetual ageing a "natural" and inevitable outcome to life, rather sad & disheartening. Much more likely, these peoples are perhaps halfway or so thru their predicted lifetimes, ignorantly unaware of what awaits them. No doubt individuals living in the middle-ages thought the same things…"Why would you want to live to 65 years old?" Why would one want to live vastly longer?….all the little things everyone wants, learning, exploring, knowing & experiencing everything. There is no nobility in exiting this life under the duress of a failing mind & body…there is no "naturalness" of acquiring a disease…one is very shocked upon contracting a notable affliction of any sort…the gravitas becomes quite apparent when it strikes "the young". Ourselves as mammals could live considerably longer as there are several examples as such within nature, calling it unnatural is unfounded.

  4. The Elite will only use it to live longer so they can stay in control longer while the average person will be kept living longer to serve them and keep them wealthy.

    The reason also people want this is the fear of death.
    We need to accept it, everything comes to an end.
    If you live a good life then you can look back and say it was worth it.

    I think we need to stop playing with nature and let nature to what it does, creates balance.

  5. People in some in family's have a short life span while other family's live close to and even over 100 years old, I come from a family with long life span, 2 grandmothers one 103 the other 98 at time of death. My father is 93 and my mother 91 at present still getting around and their mind is sharp. I don't know about my great grandparents they lived in another country. I'm not a scientist but genetics must have something to do with it.

  6. Before we are born we are basically immortal. The telomeres continually repair themselves otherwise, with all the cell divisions it takes to grow a baby, we would be dead before we are born. As soon as we are born that ends and the clock starts ticking with 120 years. That's based on the number of cell divisions the body is capable of (science fact). Every disease, stressful event and toxin in our lives shortens that time. I`m not a bible thumper but, it's interesting to note, the book says we were supposed to live forever but after screwing up our years would be 120. I am a believer in God and I don't think we'll beat him at this game. Striving to live a happy, healthy life is the best way to enjoy as many of those years as possible. Be kind, stay away from @$$holes, eat what God gave us and exercise. It's pretty simple really.

  7. Stop being selfish trying to live for ever the earth is over populated as it is. Eat right , drink 3L of water a day , exercise and you probably won’t get cancer and will live a healthy life , die happy and make room for the next gen.

  8. This is an invitation to see a theory on the nature of time! In this theory we have an emergent uncertain future continuously coming into existence relative to the spontaneous absorption and emission of photon energy. Within such a process the wave particle duality of light and matter in the form of electrons is forming a blank canvas that we can interact with forming the possible into the actual! The future is unfolding with each photon electron coupling or dipole moment relative to the atoms of the periodic table and the wavelength of the electromagnetic spectrum. As part of a universal process of energy exchange that forms the ever changing world of our everyday life the ‘past’ has gone forever. At the smallest scale of this process the ‘past’ is represented by anti-matter annihilation with the symmetry between matter and anti-matter representing the symmetry between the future and the past as the future unfolds photon by photon. In such a theory the mathematics of quantum mechanics represents the physics of ‘time’ with the classical physics of Newton representing processes over a period of time, as in Newton’s differential equations. In my videos I explain how this process is relative to temperature and the phase changes of matter.

  9. To live longer, take 10 grams of Vitamin C per day, and take 5 grams of Virgin Organic Coconut Oil per day. Here is the one million dollars secret that I give you for free !

  10. Have you noticed that people that tell themselves they age…getting old sucks are actually aging much faster?!
    Instead people need to tell themselves that they are young and healthy!
    Our cells respond to what we command them to!

  11. Steve jobs lived about 60 years and made history !
    my grand father lived for 114 years and no body knows about him !
    She's looking after well being but don't even exercise….these kind of research are more about attracting money rather than helping humanity.

  12. The interviewees in this documentary all had a financial interest in calling age a „disease“. What a weird idea! If you manage to stay healthy getting older is such fun, because one has the chance to get to know ones self and learn to live with it. The actual diseases mentioned are lifestyle diseases (diabetes II, cardiovascular, alzheimers and – to a certain degree – cancer). It is easy to think of them as age related because they are so slow to develop symptoms, but diabetes II patients are getting younger and younger, heart patients are getting younger too. It is extremely misleading therefore to lump all these illnesses together and say it is the aging that is at fault. And when you look these lifestyle diseases in particular, you‘ll find that most of them are caused by some kind of chronic inflammation. At present the western world is in the stranglehold of rapacious disease management industries. Don‘t let these up and coming companies lobby politicians into spending tax money on any of this stuff! I know, I know, it is very difficult to change your lifestyle, but it will give you such autonomy!

  13. Its funny how non-aging older people just look like older people, that have had work done 🙂 I think aging comes from life experience and changes your outlook on life which then changes your looks. I hope the look of having work done doesnt stop looking funny and becomes normal. Yuck.

  14. That blonde is 41 and thinks she looks good (she looks 41), fishing for compliments. Even after all that treatment she still looks her age. I'm 47, don't do any therapy, I just eat lots of real food which is raw fruit and veg. I even eat junk food sometimes but mostly I don't. I gave up dairy a year ago and may give up meat soon. I never get ill, ever ! And look and feel 27, 30 max! It is all in the mind. I laugh at people with stuck attitudes (once they reach 40), I'm always learning and feel great about myself and my future. All ageing and death are slow suicide. People programme themselves by their beliefs (usually negative ones). I've noticed the racists and the selfish people get the most illnesses. Their subconscious must feel as guilty as hell and kills them from the inside. When you think bigger than worrying about how many foreigners live in your country, then you have a reason to live longer and be fit in order to do what you love doing and positively contributing in this life. Selfish gossipy people die sooner

  15. I listen to Lee Caroll' s channeling KRYON on this subject, and the act of understanding and using your multidimensional self is discussed over and over again. Spiritual masters appear perfect in higher frequency dimensions. Most of us, according to the messages, function only at 30% DNA efficiency. We all have the ability to improve that efficiency by acknowledging our mastery and addressing what is termed "the innate body" or the "smart body." It is the innate body, according to the source, that becomes activated when a spontaneous remission of a terminal disease occurs. Accepting in faith that death is unnecessary is also a key component in reprogramming "the mercaba." We were designed by our creator to live joyously, but, by free will, have created the program of birthing, aging, and dying that we now experience.
    Find this commentary interesting or crazy, as you will, but I share it because, for me, the information rings with an element of truth that cannot be proven. My aim is to give hope to those interested.

  16. Time will take the life you have from you, nomatter how much you object. It will not go away anymore than it will care.
    I have to say that I don`t like the idea of ageing further – especially since I am now 54 years old and am beginning to feel it. But what can I do about it ? There is only one cure for ageing, and I like it even less than I do ageing.
    Its either age or die.

  17. Delusional people. Even the world richest and royal couldn't stay alive -not for love nor money. Not a single person since the beginning of time has lived beyond their lifespan between birth and approx 100 years. Get over it. The sooner you accept the inevitable, the sooner you can enjoy life. Key to longevity is simple-respect your body and mind, eat moderately and take care of your heart.

  18. Please stop trying to find solutions in complicated technologies.. Think logic, look at nature, eat natural, rest, be in nature, grow emotionally, enjoy your age and the stages of your life.. +20-30 years life will be the result

  19. human being can only become civilized with time so living longer hopefully will make us wiser and if it make people more healthy that will make people happy, and also break the cycle of history repeating its self if human lived to 400 years healthy what would we learn about yourself. The travelers that modified our dna 350.000 year ago, lived to over 60,000 year there are over 1 million earth like planets in our own galaxy so we are not the only one staring at the star it take 100 light year to travel from one edged of our galaxy to the other so anything is possible all we need is the will
