Antigeria is a medical condition that I would like to have. It means
perpetual youth. It is a term that I coined for lack of a better one.
It is a condition that Geron Corp (NASDAQ) is seeking to develop. There is a
biotechnical term for it. A4M is a coalition of scientists working to
lengthen human life expectancy.
Many researchers globally are seeking ways to stop the aging process
(eg., Curing the Old Age Disease Society - COADS). Breakthru would be worth
$billions in windfall profits.
Then, again, if I were a scientist who discovered the way to stay young
and stop the aging process, I don't know if I would let the world know
about it for many years to come. The ramifications are incomprehensible.
I'm not sure that it hasn't already been developed. Govt's have a way of
suppressing research or solutions.
Even with the cellular aging process arrested, people would still have
opportunites to extinguish themselves in socially acceptable ways, such
as overconsumption of foods; regular ingestion of toxins like alcohol,
smoke, fatty foods, and high cholesterols; sedentary lifestyles; as well as
careless driving and going to high crime areas and participating in
