Hi All

The average lifespan of a human being is seen as being about 80 and the maximum lifespan is seen to be about 124. Yet over the last century huge advancements in our knowledge of aging have occured. Scientists have been saying in the media that immortality in people is 30-40 years away from being achieved. In fact they already know how it works but the experiments with people arent due to be finished for another 30-40 years.

So what do they know?

Telomeres - These are lengthened by testosterone but high levels of the hormone are required. Unfortunately even if you get the high levels your body has a sex hormone thermostat build into it to return them to normal. Testosterone lengthens telomeres in here - http://www.totalhorm...ignificance.pdf

Aspartic Acid -  This wonderful amino-acid is found in high amounts in strawberries and milk. Its also sold as a gym supplement and its a well known aritifical sweetener (aspartime). This stuff makes the human body pump out huge amounts of testosterone. D-aspartic acid increases testosterone in here - http://www.ergo-log....stosterone.html

Aromatase - This is the sex hormone thermostat. Inhibitors to prevent it are nicotine and nicotine like chemicals. For those who dont want to buy nicotine gum or patches then the blue pigment in blueberries works. Aromtase destroys testosterone in here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aromatase

Its that simple for men. For women estrogen is produced by aromatase breaking down testosterone so they cant take an aromatase inhibitor. They need to stop the break down of estrogen instead but unfortunately those chemicals can only be attained with a prescription.

I would love to live to 1000, however, I think that's a very, very low possibly nowadays.

Just imagine all that you could learn, with that amount of time, at hand  :D

No thanks.  The government would have us working until we are 995yrs old.  Plus, just think how much Christmas would cost with all those offspring!

Shouldn't **** with nature. If we are supposed to die we will die. Why are people so afraid of facing that?

If someone wants to live longer that does not mean they are afraid of being dead.

I think most people wouldent want to live to 1000
because they are afraid of living

I'm bored with life as it is.

I can't even imagine trying to blow out 1000 candles.

I gather you've never had a vaccination in your life.

If we can reincarnate, to me that'd be all the more reason to not prolong my life much. Maybe 100 years prolonging at most, dont know... but being stuck in this same personality can get old.

I never remember being asked whether I wanted that vaccine or not.

I've been born again 31,8,2014 approximately 21:35 local time. A moment free of clutter in the mind, emancipating myself like an escapist, allowing myself to breathe life in a stronger, less physical level... though it does resonate to physical world. It's the oomph.

They did it too mice.

They gentically engineered them so instead of sex hormones lengthening their telomeres it was the chemotherapty drug tamoxifen. They had to design the experiment like that to isolate and show that the gene pathways they expected to lengthen telomeres actually did. The experiment de-aged the mice back to youth. Its been done on other mammals too and we have the same identical gene pathways as them (we're mammals).

In my OP the first link I gave was about the awarding of the Nobel prize for discovering testosterone lengthens telomeres.

Pass. I wouldn't want to live a 1000 years. And I wouldn't want to live for 900+ years on a chemical program to make it happen. And I would have to imagine population problems would become rather terrible if a lot of people were living that long.
