Well ageing probably doesn't limit the amount of time you can spend on Facebook, but dying definitely does!

When I read this piece by my friend Riva-Melissa Tez, I felt that I'm going to cry. Now read it too and think about how you would feel if somebody close to your heart died. This very thought makes me sick to my stomack, but it also makes me work hard to try to prevent death. It is our chance to do something about it and we should get involved now. Otherwise we will be the ones to blame for the deadly inaction.
What if your inaction is to blame for the death of your loved ones?

I was going on and on about the importance of clinical trials for perspective aging therapies, and there you go - a large study of metformin is being planned under the supervision of Nir Barzilai from Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

"The trial aims to test the drug metformin, a common medication often used to treat Type 2 diabetes, and see if it can delay or prevent other chronic diseases."

But most importantly this trial may pave the way to official recognition of aging as a disease or a condition that needs treatment. This will be a real gamechanger.

"Sandy Walsh, an FDA spokeswoman, said the agency’s perspective has long been that “aging” isn’t a disease. “We clearly have approved drugs that treat consequences of aging,” she said. Although the FDA currently is inclined to treat diseases prevalent in older people as separate medical conditions, “if someone in the drug-development industry found something that treated all of these, we might revisit our thinking.”

I really wish this trial will receive enough funding so that we all benefit from its results. So far only the planning stage has been funded. The importance of this work is hard to overestimate - our lives probably depend on this trial.

I posted this on my reshare but I though I'd put it here too: the research article that supported this is at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/dom.12354/abstract

We have put together a survery on stranshumanism strategy. I’d like to ask everybody who is interested in radical life extension to answer the questions. They are 30 simple “yes” and “no” questions. We see transhumanism as the idea of increasing human capabilities using advances in science and technology. The main goal of transhumanism is increasing human viability. We would appreciate your answers and will be happy to collaborate.

+Shankt I tend to agree that "movement" is probably a misnomer. Maybe we should call it a "cause", since there is a case to be made for accelerating evolution through global awareness. When enough citizens of this planet start believing that radical life extension is an achievable goal for themselves, then they have a motivation to make it happen (and the "motivation" being the "motor" of a cause, I guess it can be called "movement"). Words can get in the way...
