Would you be willing to do a very risky therapy to get younger?

The guy follows the most up-to-date research. In his videos, the doctor goes over the new published research, and he does a good job in explaining how to interpret the data. His content is high quality, but hey, I was just trying to help you out. I thought you would find his content useful and you might really need Rapamycin in the near future.

Do you consider NAD+ infusions very risky?

Thanks for thinking of me, DT, but I'm not afraid of old age or dying. I've adopted some kind of mix of buddhist and Epicurean philosophy. Change is part of life, and that includes growing old and dying. If you're lucky, you'll be in the generation that sees the population of the planet stabilize and perhaps even fall. You get the chance to try and make the earth sustainable place for human life. The last thing the world needs is billions more people when population levels out -- that would make your challenge even harder.

I've consumed more than my share of resources in my life. The last thing I want to do is consume an extraordinary amount more trying to wring a year or two more out of my life. I'm at peace with that.

There are numerous substances that prevent aging. Cyanide, arsenic, and strychnine are a handful that come to mind.
Religion is for people whose existential fear is greater than their common sense.

Alright, can't argue against that. What matters is your happiness.

I don’t know if there’s any clinical evidence to support the following musing, but my initial aversion would be that it could throw some reductase enzymes out of whack, and cause a spike in NADPH. The anabolic aspects would certainly be beneficial (especially for things like muscle wasting that happen as we get old and crotchety), but tinkering with cholesterol synthesis when our arteries and tickers are on borrowed time seems counterproductive to longevity.

Whenever you tinker with one thing, there's always something rascally our bodies might do.
