Janic, the fantasies of the present are often the reality of the future!

It seems to me that we had spoken of "telomerization" in this subject: Health-pollution-prevention / the-mystery-of-old-how live-plus-old t10885.html

In the same genre there is also the immortal jellyfish: Science-and-Technology / jellyfish-a-immortal-yet-more-strong-as-the-tardigrade-t12494.html

(maybe they talked about it in the doc you cite?)

christophe hello
Janic, the fantasies of the present are often the reality of the future!
I was talking about the hopes of the documentary. I have enough km on the odometer to have read and heard this kind of speech which leads to some cases highlighted and silence on the failures or dangers which result from these attempts. Remember the billions of dollars invested in cancer research and for a deplorable, if not zero, result (considering the number is not decreasing) or for the papillomavirus, the same goes for vaccinations which are not only a major failure, but in addition were used to develop auto immune diseases, much more worrying, and of course the same for the famous HIV which also generates billions of dollars in the juicy pharmacy markets.
(Look, I hear news, autism, another scandal!) : Cry:

No, no mention of the jellyfish!
What I learned (as usual) is the opposition between the use of isolated telomerases which develop healthy cells as much as cancer cells, but not when these telomerases are produced by the body accompanied by 'an adequate lifestyle (this is no longer a fantasy!)

Do not get into conspiracy lobbyism too quickly it becomes heavy janic there ...

Well, we talked about telomerase on this subject too: https://www.econologie.com/forums/protee-ang ... 10879.html

Why so much passion for the subject on econology? Maybe the scientific challenge?

life is a deadly disease!

I also saw this show on the 5

the best immortal cells are cancer cells ... fortunately our normal cells have limited reproductive capacity: that protects us from cancer!

another way of seeing, what good is it to increase the lifespan if it is to end with alzheimer ...

there is enough work to do to improve the quality of life at normal age

the real question is rather: is there conspiracy or not? In general, it is the minorities that are considered conspiratorial and not the other way around: why? A truth would automatically be on the side of the greatest number! In this case ecology would be a conspiracy lobbie (as some do not hesitate to say) when it criticizes this world of pollution!
So the anti-nuclear lobbies, the anti-diamond lobbies, the September 11 lobbies, the anti-HIV lobbies, the organic lobbies, etc ... and this page would not be enough to state all these "lobbies" which want to prevent the well-oiled machine from turning. 8)

EXCLUSIVE. A new step towards immortality ?

The French biotechnology company Cellectis announced Monday a world first: the possibility of "making a genetic backup to reset one day".

October 25, 2023. Los Angeles. On his favorite golf course, Edward, 59, a Hollywood star actor, is struck down by a heart attack. He may never get a normal life again. Fortunately, this enthusiast of innovation signed, ten years earlier, a contract with the company Scéil. Suddenly, his surgeon will be able to restore his coronary tissue, with heart cells containing Edward's own DNA. Zero risk of immune rejection ...

Science fiction? Partly only. Because the French biotechnology company Cellectis announces, this evening, a world first! Its CEO, André Choulika, is on tour this week in New York and Los Angeles to launch its new subsidiary Scéil, which offers this futuristic contract. A bold bet on the progress of pharmacy and medicine, which tomorrow, he says, will routinely develop personalized drugs and regenerative therapies.
