Prophet of Loss: Not all cell in the body are regenerative, even if we stop telomere related cell death.

Body of a 20 year old, mind of 130 year old pudding.

That's a misconception, that brain cells don't grow in adults.

And really, it should be no surprise that hormone therapy raises the risk of cancer. Hormones are chemicals that stimulate cell activity. It's not a leap to think they would have a hand in promoting cancer growth.

"In light of insufficient scientific evidence [that] HGH in older adults offers long-term anti-aging benefits, and with studies indicating that low growth hormone levels may actually protect the elderly from aging diseases ... the risks of using HGH as an anti-aging strategy outweigh the potential benefits," said Dr. Sofiya Milman, lead author of the new study and an assistant professor of endocrinology at Albert Einstein.

I think they're missing the point. The desire to recapture youth when old outweighs the desire of simply living a longer time at the baseline. It's human nature to burn the candles on both ends for quality over quantity.

I'm really glad that I'm not a woman nor was I ever so good looking that I have something to "cling to."  I'd hate to feel compelled to spend money on sh*t like this.
