Is the fountain of youth literally around the corner? Could we really live to 125 years and beyond?

Fact. Did you know that scientists have been able to turn old mice in to young mice, and immortalise human cells?

Dr. Bill Andrews Phd, a world leading biologist in Telomere Research is visiting New Zealand to share his amazing 'life extension' discoveries.

Due to huge demand to hear Dr. Andrews speak about his discoveries, 4 public seminars have been scheduled in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Last time Dr. Andrews visited NZ his event sold out in 2 days – so get in fast!

His discoveries are being touted as the world’s biggest medical breakthrough to date, that will lead to cures for many age related and non age-related diseases.

One of the most highly respected scientists in the USA, described as ‘The Man Who Would Stop Time’ by Popular Science Magazine he has been featured on the Today Show, BBC, NBC and recently starred in the award winning documentary ‘The Immortalists’ which was short listed to the top 100 documentaries for an Oscar.

For thousands of years people have told tales of a fountain of youth, the ability to restore a person to there younger days. And life extension is something scientists around the world have been working on for decades. And it seems, with great success.

Dr. Bill Andrews, who at 63 is an Ultra Marathon runner, has focused the last 20 years on finding ways to extend the human lifespan and health-span through telomere maintenance.

Scientists have known about Telomeres since the 1930s and that they shorten with age since the 1970s. Yet none have been able to actually figure out a way to stop the shortening – that is, until now.

Dr. Andrews discovered an enzyme called Telomerase, that actually stopped the Telomere shortening in humans.

Dr. Andrews explains, “Just like the caps on your shoelaces, the older the telomeres get, the more worn out and shorter they become, until they are rendered useless. Telomere shortening is one of the biggest, yet most unknown killers of humans today. By putting a halt to the shortening of our telomeres - or even better, lengthening them - the cures for a long list of telomere shortening related diseases is one step closer. Plus, you could extend your healthy life indefinitely.”

To many, aging is just something that happens, an unavoidable part of life that brings with it all the un-niceties. But there is growing noise amongst the scientific community that perhaps aging doesn’t have to be so unpleasant. Perhaps, it doesn’t even have to happen at all. The term ‘growing old gracefully’ may for once, have some truth to it.

As one of the principal discoverers of both the RNA and protein components of human telomerase, Dr. Andrews was awarded 2nd place as “United States Inventor of the Year” in 1997. He is also a named inventor on 45 US issued patents on telomerase and author of numerous scientific research studies published in peer reviewed scientific journals.

This event will include a presentation from Dr. Andrews about his latest discoveries, plus a Q & A session that will allow you to get you burning question answered!

Fact is, people alive today will be able to extend their lives by 25 to 50 years. Not only that, they will be able to stay looking younger and avoid debilitating age related diseases. If you interested in the anti-aging industry then don't miss out on this once in a lifetime event to get up close and personal with the man leading the Telomere Biology Research field.
