Life extension and reversal of the Epigenetic Clock. Good or bad?
Hey, I dont know if this has already been covered on here but it's something I find fascinating since I was introduced to Prof. David Sinclair by the Joe Rogan experience (#1234 and #1349 if you're interested)

I have attached an article about a small study that was done in California. The study only had 9 subjects and no control arm so I dont think we can take it TOO seriously. But the results, quite frankly, were astonishing.

I'm not going to try and explain how all of this works as I'm sure I'll butcher it but here's a key paragraph from the article.

'For one year, nine healthy volunteers took a cocktail of three common drugs — growth hormone and two diabetes medications — and on average shed 2.5 years of their biological ages, measured by analysing marks on a person’s genomes. The participants’ immune systems also showed signs of rejuvenation.'

To me that's pretty crazy, right? And from what I understand there are a couple of effective substances/medications available for reversing the epigenetic clock than were not used in this study.

And if you pay attention to Prof. Sinclair he believes that it is well in the realm of possibility that we could live anything up to 80 years longer in the future.

But what happens when we are all living til we are 180 years old? Will we have enough resources? Will the planet be able to cope with the inevitable mass increase in human population if this is the case? I mean, we seem to be struggling a bit globally as we are.

Just thought it was an interesting topic and would love to know your thoughts.

Happy Monday

Thanks just that genetic measurement of age is an eye opener. Seems once you can do this you can measure everything we do against it.

Hey Han, yes indeed it is an eye opener. From what I've read that will be exactly the case. We should be able to mesure how specific habits etc. directly affect the epigenetic (horvath) clock. Exciting times for sure!

Then hookup an AI to make favorable decisions for us, then... It seems all paths lead to the same place :()

Why? shouldn't we all be asking why we want to live longer, rather than going along with that reactionary action from deep in the psyche of 'Yes ofcourse I want to live longer!' and I don't care why I do........

if you aren't suicidal you want to live, what more do you need than that?

yes sounds like a survival instinct. but isnt that the idea around this evolutionary space?

To evolve we pass on our genes and die. An understanding of genetics shows no other purpose for life. Old age, indeed any age beyond reproductive usefulness is a human conceit. The body degrades quickly like a flower wilts but we use our superior intelligence for methods to extend our time. It’s all hubris.

If I could recommend one book everyone should read this year it would be Lifespan.
It's science, it's facts, it's perspective shattering and throughouly enjoyable
