Hi Johnny.


All the best for your presentation tomorrow.  Sure wish I could
be there.  I tried to reschedule, but sadly it would inconvenience too
many people too much.


I can’t wait to see the video.

Next GRG meeting Monday Jan 30, and Steve Coles traveling and


Dear GRG


Steve is
traveling, and when he returns we will continue to get his new computer
going.  Look for communication from him


Next GRG

Date: Next
Monday, June 30, 2014

Time: 8:00

Location: UCLA
Boyer Hall


In addition to
Steve’s usual discussion about what’s happening in aging R&D, I will be
making a presentation.  The title is Increasing Healthy


It was created
to inform and entertain members of the community about increasing healthy
years of life, and offer news about research and development.  The talk
was created mainly for a scientific minded general public to provide
information, generate interest and raise money.   Scientists and
physicians will find it useful.


Some topics:

light hearted spoof of the OUTRAGEOUS claims being made for “anti-aging”
products – Low T, skin cremes, youth elixirs.

shared mission in the aging education and research

and the future: Healthy years vs. sick years

“Silver Tsunami”

Google “solve death” – and transform the grim reaper into a playful

Bourhenne Medical Research Foundation (dba Aging Intervention

What happens
when we age

Some successes
in biomedical and aging research

o   Conventional
methods available now to slow aging

§  How to slow the
aging processes while new therapies are

o   Replacement
parts – organ engineering, stem cells

o   Intervening in
the underlying causes of aging

creating healthspan and lifespan solutions
