    Yes, understanding life extension techniques will benefit all of us. Life extension should be open to those who are interested in extending their lifespan.

    Attempting to extend the length of an organisms life boils down to survival at it's most basic level. The longer a person can be a productive member of a society, the more value can that can be generated by each individual. The more labor a person can perform, the more value they have.

    Improving the quality and quantity of life is important to the field of gerontology. Life extension should be a part of mainstream gerontology as medical science, nutrition and lifestyle choices can be made to extend life by 10 to 20 years beyond the norm in all parts of the world.
