Better Healthcare Marketplace is Needed

Better healthcare marketplaces are needed. Challenge Solution Needs to incorporate human longevity approaches Provide a clinic that provides options to a decentralized network of human longevity providers Currently, it’s a blackbox in terms of selecting best practices, transparency of data, and accountability over decisions made Rank top practices, subject to peer review. Share data in… Read More »

Consciousness

Questions: Can consciousness be backed up? Can it be transmitted? Can it be preserved? How can it be modelled/mapped? How can it be duplicated? If someone is frozen and survives upon being unfrozen, what is their consciousness like (eg. http://abcnews.go.com/Health/frozen-man-revived-brink-death-found-snow-pulse/story?id=36380318) by

Approaches to Keep a Healthy Body

What is the most promising method to replace all organs in the body? a) Is it to use gene editing in combination with stem cells (eg. http://www.the-scientist.com/?articles.view/articleNo/46810/title/Using-CRISPR-to-Edit-Genes-in-Induced-Pluripotent-Stem-Cells/) to rejuvenate all organs or b) is simply harvesting new organs through a backup body and replacing them all periodically the better approach. c) combine human body parts… Read More »

Potential CRISPR Healthspan applications

Potential CRISPR Healthspan applications: TFAM (Transcription Factor A, Mitochondrial) – gene engineering allows cells to manufacture a nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) precursor on their own Allows “overall rejuvenation, including reversal of signs of muscle atrophy, inflammation, and insulin resistance” GDF11 (growth differentiation factor 11) – GDF11 has been reported to rejuvenate the heart, muscles, and brain: “GDF11 has been reported… Read More »

4 Pathways to Reverse Damage/Aging

Use Telomerase activators: “Drugs that turn on our own telomerase (using the HTERT gene) and thereby reset gene expression.” Use Telomerase Protein “Use messenger RNA for telomerase (accomplished by Helen Blau’s group at Stanford)” “Deliver telomerase gene itself (either via liposomes or viral vectors) to the body’s cells” Several groups are doing this include Telocyte.  Telocyte… Read More »
