ExtroBritannia - London event: life-extension

The next ExtroBritannia event is scheduled for Saturday the 24th of April at 12,00pm in Holborn, London.

The theme of the meeting is life-extension. Michael Price will give a presentation based on his "The Role of Enzymic Cofactors in Aging or How to Live to 200":

"To live longer we know we should cut down on tobacco, alcohol and calories, drink water and drive carefully. Less well known are the benefits of various micronutrients in our diet: micronutrients such as the B-vitamins, minerals and other dietary precursors to enzymic cofactors; yet the health and longevity benefits of the cofactor-yielding B vitamins and minerals are much greater than the more widely publicised anti-oxidants, such as vitamins C and E. We survey the dietary cofactors that have extended lifespan in animals, apparently by slowing aging. We examine the experimental methodologies used and their relevance to, and implications for, humans. We examine a number of theories of aging in relation to various dietary-derived enzymic cofactors. In the light of the role of enzymic cofactors in aging we look to see what other dietary micronutrients may slow aging, or at least improve health. Finally we examine some prevalent misconceptions before concluding."

WHERE & WHEN

If you want to attend, you have two choices:

1) you can show up at the Wetherspoon pub at the address below from 12,00 noon to just before 2pm for a pre-event chat over lunch/caffeine/drinks

2) you can go directly to Conway Hall at 2,00 pm where we have hired the "Artists' Room".

If it's your first time at an ExtroBritannia meeting and you are going to the pre-event lunch, I'll be the guy clearly displaying a copy of Kurzweil's "The Age of Spiritual Machines" on the table we'll be sitting at.
