Ending Aging: The Rejuvenation Breakthroughs That Could Reverse Human Aging in Our Lifetime. By: Aubrey de Grey

Can you imagine living a healthy life to the ripe old age of 1,000? How about a world without cancer, Alzheimer’s or diabetes? Our guest on this episode of the podcast believes we are only 25 years from making this dream a reality. This man is Aubrey de Grey, an English author and theoretician in the field of gerontology, and the Chief Science Officer of the SENS Foundation ( In 1999, Aubrey completed a book titled, The Mitochondrial Free Radical Theory of Aging which prompted the University of Cambridge to award Aubrey a PhD. His most recent book titled, Ending Aging: The Rejuvenation Breakthroughs That Could Reverse Human Aging in Our Lifetime gives a much more in depth look at the subjects we cover in this weeks interview.  Enjoy!

  1. Very thought provoking interview, although after listening to Episode 7 in it’s entirety, I find myself wanting to give this podcast all of my money… strange….

    Keep up the great work!

  2. Wow… you weren’t lying about the beard.

    Love this podcast more and more! I’m routing my amazon ordering through your widget. My addiction… is your gain. It’s the least I can do.

  3. Dear Aubrey!
    Your company SENS foundation working to develop artificial organs. OK. It is justified for internal organs when the organ is not working and the organism dies. But the external organ, our skin that will eventually wear out and destroyed the organism can repair and rejuvenate itself. If it has our help. But this unfortunately no one does. And if you do, first rejuvenate the old skin and internal organs will rejuvenate, and the entire body. I tried to convey this message to you, but to no avail. There are no any aging programs in our organism. No genes of aging, there are no limits on life span. The organism can work the century, if it gets the right service. Skin combines the internal organs in one organism, feeds them and its destruction (visible to the naked eye) causes senile disease of internal organs and death of the organism. As for the old oil filter stops the motor vehicle. It is easy to understand. Sorry you do not understand this. The skin is the lungs, and kidneys, and external brain and nervous system. Its destruction leads to the death of the entire body. It is our death. It is very desirable rejuvenation of the old man to begin with its rejuvenation of the old dilapidated skin. It’s easier and cheaper and more effective, and tested by medicine.
    Best regards, Valery Chuprin

  4. Gentlemen:

    I am inquiring as to what could be done in regards to living a 1,000 years or more, or even longer as long as medicines or herbs will allow. I am quite interested in this theory of age reversal process. I would appreciate your brief reply at
