here's a howdy-doo. scientists have been talking for some time about life extension -- and, in that context, about people now alive perhaps extending their life-spans beyond 100 -- but perhaps to 120 or so. now comes aubrey de grey, with the notion that a THOUSAND-YEAR life-span is a realistic expectation in the foreseeable future.

[the first of three related posts about the dangers of plastic, BPA and otherwise -- each posted here with its own link.] i never seem to hear people talking about the health dangers of BPA. even brief contact with food or drink can increase these. please download, read, & circulate this pdf file. & bear in mind that other plastics besides BPA also present health dangers - they are just not well documented yet.
