A Pill to Extend Life? Don't Dismiss the Notion Too Quickly

- The Extropian PR Dept.

>From the article:

Dr. Tomas A. Prolla, a geneticist who studies aging at the University of
Wisconsin, said Dr. Guarente's report was the first to link the life
extension effects of caloric restriction to a single gene.

"If the find can be translated to animals, it will be very important," Dr.
Prolla said, because it would provide "a starting point in the design of
drugs which would have a broad effect on human health, including cancer."
