I want to live forever as much as the next person, but I can't convince
myself that LE is more worthwhile than my own personal rule of thumb:
"Everything in moderation." Not being a nutritionist, chemist or biologist
myself, I'd basically have to rely on what someone else said is the real
good stuff to ingest. And as for CR, well I'm too much the Epicurean to
want to live forever if it meant thousands of years of wheat germ and carrot

But perhaps if the research were compelling enough to show that one or
another LE method was sufficiently likely to add a chunk of years onto my
life, I'd be interested in looking into it. I know Durk & Sandy of the LEF
have been researching/experimenting on themselves for a couple decades now.
Anybody know whether they (or any other long term LE'ers) are reaping any
