    Hello Maria, Thank you very much for your efforts and sharing this information. Finally someone who thinks about aging and death! I would hope that Science will one day be able to prevent death.

    Curing aging (well, death) is incredible complex (of course:)).
    This level of complexity should be attractive in it’s own right, an unresistable challenge for the planets brightest minds, even if some of them pretend to accept death.
    Attracting the powerful ones might help our case in regards of resources.
    But most politicians in power are bound by some kind of average mindset when it comes to visions. Some are really contraproductiv and so on. You know that…
    That’s no reason to give up!

    cheers from Sweden
