The new issue of Newsweek has an interesting article on "superhormone
therapy" -- the use of hormones to slow, stop, or reverse aspects of aging,
especially in men. The article covers testosterone, DHEA, human growth
hormone, and melatonin. Extropy columnist Dr. Ray Sahelian, gets a mention
-- his book on DHEA is the first one out.

I was pleased to see a report on a promising set of anti-aging treatments in
such a large circulation magazine. The report is reasonably balanced, and
should give the reader the impression that hormone therapy will become routine.

You male readers can also now add another easy biomarker test to see how
youthful and vital you are (in addition to the easy tests for reaction time,
static balance, and visual accommodation): Check the angle of your erection!
