To Live Forever

Public interest attorney Steven M. Druker, as executive director of the Alliance for Bio-Integrity, initiated a lawsuit that forced the FDA to divulge its files on genetically engineered foods. In the first half, he discussed what he considers to be the biggest scientific fraud of our age - how politically appointed administrators have covered up the warnings of their own scientists about the risks of GMO foods.

In the latter half, Rosemary Ellen Guiley, a leading expert in the metaphysical and paranormal fields, talked about nightmares and dreams, and the messages they convey.

To Live Forever

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - November 20, 2004
Host: Art Bell
Guests: Dr. Terry Grossman

Founder of the Frontier Medical Institute, Dr. Terry Grossman, said the prospects for dramatic life extension are not far off, and suggested several changes one should make in order to live long enough to take advantage of future anti-aging technologies.

Grossman prescribed a lower calorie diet devoid of simple sugars, supplements, and bio-identical hormone replacement for those who wished to live longer, healthier lives. He said the population of Okinawa has an extraordinarily high number of centenarians, people who live to be 100 or more, and credited their remarkable longevity to diet. Grossman also cited one of his patients who, after following the recommended anti-aging therapies, reduced his "biological age" by 15 years.

The ultimate goal, according to Grossman, is to live long enough to take advantage of developing technologies that will reverse the aging process, and possibly allow one to live forever. He theorized that biotechnological revolutions will allow people to repair worn out and damaged parts of their bodies with brand new tissues and organs developed from stem cells. Eventually, advances in nanotechnology will allow humans to remain youthful for an indefinite period, Grossman concluded.

Diet & Longevity

Researchers who have studied the effects of caloric restriction (CR) are convinced that a diet limited in calories but possessing all necessary nutrients can extend the lifespan of a variety of organisms, possibly even humans.

According to a online report at iangoddard.net, "CR not only extends the lifespan of laboratory animals but also reduces the incidence of virtually all diseases of aging such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, auto-immune disorders, neurological decline and diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's."

Scientists think the anti-aging mechanism triggered by CR is an enzyme called Sir2. In a study conducted by the University of Connecticut Health Center, researchers discovered that an increase in Sir2 levels extended the lifespan of fruit flies. These findings could one day lead to the development of a drug that would extend one's longevity without having to adhere to a strict CR diet.
