A Counterpoint to the Concept of the Late Life Mortality Plateau
'Fight Aging!' Blog
"All the more reason to work harder on the development of rejuvenation biotechnology, capable of repairing the damage of aging. Time waits for no one."
Computation Error Explains Census Bureau's Incorrect Estimate of Mortality Rate

Fewer Centenarians Than Previously Thought
"This makes intuitive sense to me. The more things go wrong in the body the more those things cause still other things to go wrong. Plus, each component is wearing out even without the influence of failing supporting components. So why expect a flattening of the mortality curve? We won't be able to flatten or, better yet, reverse the rising mortality rate with age until we can rejuvenate. Gotta repair or replace aging parts. ...
This report is yet another reminder: We need to develop rejuvenation therapies."

"..this report should give us cause to hesitate before we plunge headlong into policies that have far-reaching effects but are based upon data that is perhaps unreliable. Not only do we not know where our temerity will land us in the future, we do not even necessarily know exactly what position we are jumping from."
