The Senior Journal notes the launch of another study on longevity - what factors, genetic or otherwise, enable some people to live longer than others. "We will be looking for genetic risks for cancer, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes&emdash;all the major risks&emdash;as well as asking about personal habits, looking at medical histories, and doing clinical tests.

The Senior Journal notes the launch of another study on longevity - what factors, genetic or otherwise, enable some people to live longer than others? "We will be looking for genetic risks for cancer, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes all the major risks as well as asking about personal habits, looking at medical histories, and doing clinical tests." Personally, I think that researchers should be spending more time focusing on realistic prospects for reversing aging while continuing to examine the current state of affairs. That they don't is a function of the conservative funding environment - more public support for and understanding of serious anti-aging research is needed.
