The views of professor Roy Walford of UCLA
This article was a feature in the Journal of Longevity Research.
"As we draw closer to the reality of genetic intervention and life extension, one of the key players in human genome research explores the mythologies and classical failures of those who, in the past, sought their own magical anti-aging elixirs. He also examines the reality of the anti-aging revolution to come."
