Unleashing Embryonic Superpowers UPDATE

January 29, 2018

Last week, Michael West, PhD, the scientist who pioneered stem cell medicine and telomerase research and CEO of BioTime (*see disclosure within), gave a presentation to the World Stem Cell Summit (WSCS). Included in that presentation was information indicating that he may be much closer to solving the problem of aging than I had believed.

Don’t Trust Government Science, Especially in the Gym

January 22, 2018

One reason I don’t do social media or watch television regularly is that it’s impossible to avoid the “I Heart Science” crowd. You know who I’m talking about. They enthusiastically support “science” and are condescending or derisive toward those who don’t. Apparently, they also watch a lot of documentaries on the Discovery Channel.

The Curry Clue to True Anti-Aging Biotechnologies

January 15, 2018

The ongoing revelation regarding the importance of mitochondria may be the biggest scientific story of our era. These intelligent, bacteria-like colonies of energy producers inside our cells, passed down by our mothers since the dawn of humanity, may be the key to nearly unbelievable medical and anti-aging breakthroughs.

The Embryonic Gene-Switch That Will Change the World

January 8, 2018

Last week, the world got the first peer-reviewed look at what I believe is the future of medicine. Specifically, I’m talking about the discovery that the COX7A1 gene is a switch that controls embryonic healing processes.

The Cure for Fat and Broke, and a Prediction

January 2, 2018

For me, like so many others, the New Year is a time for self-assessment. Traditionally, of course, I spend it wracked with guilt and shame over how much I ate and drank over the holidays. And soon, we’ll all move on to the ceremonial Abandonment of the Resolutions.

Activating Embryonic Genes for Better Hair and Health

December 4, 2017

I wrote recently about Eldad Tzahor, PhD, the developmental biologist at the Weizmann Institute of Science. Tzahor is working on a drug candidate that reactivates embryonic gene pathways. In animals, this allows hearts to repair themselves following a heart attack. We assume that the same thing is possible in humans.

If You’re Hot, Science Can Help You

November 27, 2017

The role of heat regulation in exercise and fitness is one of the most interesting biotech breakthroughs of the last few decades. It was, as is often the case, discovered by accident.

Everybody Out of the Gene Pool

November 20, 2017

Are we evolving? Scientists ask the question because, by historical standards, the modern era is ridiculously safe. Most of the risk factors that affected our predecessors have been eliminated or mitigated.

Tapping Hidden Embryonic Powers for Perfect Health

November 13, 2017

My trip back from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel was brutal. It was a 26-hour trek complicated by a nasty cold, but it was worth it. While in Rehobot, south of Tel Aviv, I found unexpected support for what may be the most important scientific theory of our era. It is the theory that aging can be reversed by accessing embryonic gene pathways.
