What messages work best to convince people of the need to combat aging for you and for other activists? What messages cause the opposition? Which kind of the opposition? How do you or other people counter the opposition?What is the best order of messages to convince people step by step?

Elena MilovaDifferent species age differently, which means that aging dynamics varyThere is proof of concept in animal testing that using geroprotectors you can slow down aging and extend healthy period of lifePeople can live up to 120 and even longerOverpopulation, hunger, bad ecologyDo you mean that people must suffer from age-related diseases because there is a lot of people? Don't you think this sound a little unhumaine? Actually, scientific progress give us the possibility to feed everyone. The only reason that hunger still exist is bad transportation system.As in B column
4
Genes and gene expression are behind these variationsLifespan and health are correlated, if you use geroprotectors you live longer healthier
5
We use drugs to change gene expression - that is how we treat diseasesMost of present geroprotectors are affordably for everyone. Aspirin is very cheap, metformin is cheap, vitamin D-3 for a month costs as much as 2 litres of milk. They can be used massively.
6
By giving animals some substances scientists are able to extend their life even 10 foldAging provokes age-related diseases such as cancer, dementias, diabetes, cardiovascular pathologies, artritis, and if we prevent aging, we also prevent these diseases, prevent suffering and pain.
7
When life is extended the reason is that healthspan is extended
8
If we have such drugs for humans, we could live longer healthier, at 60 to be as healthy as at 40
9
If you are healthy at 60, 70, 80 and look as in your 40s, you can lead an active life, earn money and do more long-term projects

Daria KhaltourinaAging causes chronical diseases like cancer, strokeAging causes chronical diseases like cancer, strokeOverpopulation is not a problem, we can deal with itPeople get frightening images of the future, they think we are not serious peopleWe should first make sure to healthy increase lifespan by 3 years due to aging control technologies, biology is very complex, please relaxAging causes cancer, stroke, Altzheimer's disease, etc. Prevention is much better than treating heavy diseases. We should develop biomedical technologies to save the elderly from disease and suffering. They would be active and enjoy life
11
People can live up to 200 yearsPeople think the aging research advocate is not a serious personWe should focus on preventing horrible diseases to people, people are suffering now. We should not discuss distant future
12
Aging is a diseaseAged people are not sick. Aging is a norm, not a disease. Aging fits all legal criteria of FDA's definition of disease. Disease is a word, a term. This is not important if we call aging a disease, or a syndrom. The main idea is that we shoud focus on treating and preventing it to improve people's health

ILA FB group memberElevator Pitch: We have 1, 2, 3... IP/research findings to extend healthy lifespan, We're open to trade for equivalent IP/HR/other relevant data or resources.

EdouardThe vast majority of people make it to age 55 pretty well, and then everyone deteriorates, gets cancers, alzheimer's, and diseapears due to aging. It is a true tragedy. I am not thinking that the tragedy will be avoided very soon, but if we can at least give a few decades of health that would be good.Everyone agrees but most seem to have internal objections and raise the problem of retirement costs.1.-- retirement costs. 2 -- most people prefer to focus on the short term and don't want to bother on such aspects: why don't you just enjoy about the short term? Why don't you put your energy to make much more money for yourself and your family?Retirement: we "simply" need to increase the working duration. If we live to 170, we should work up to age 120 at least. 2-- well, I find it very interested and very motivating. I enjoy life and it is part of my hobbies.no idea

In worms, flies, and now it is starting in mice, we can extend lifespan in the lab -- they really live longer in good shape. So I don't see why this shouldn't reach us in a few decades; it would be great to accelerate that.Some get it immediately and they generally ask "what about immortality". Others say, yes, perhaps...life extension in animal laboratories will reach humansThis is pure utopia. Things don't work this way. (absolutely no will to go into details) Things are never fast and there are always reasons for things not to workI just say "Perhaps, we'll see"
16
Nature has selected us to rapidly grow, in order not to be eaten when young, but this is at the cost of longevity. Experiments in mice, that have some correspondance in long lived human families, tell us that we can enhance our longevity, at the cost of growing more slowly, which isn't a big issue for us today, especially if we are already adults!This one works the best because people like "tradeoff" and feel there is a logic.Still, there must be some tradeoff that we don't see. But, interesting, really

Novartis is preparing to sell a longevity drug that improves the immune system when aged. It was found to improve the response to flu vaccination among other things. I guess in a few years it will be like taking vitamin C, and we'll have others to live longer and healthierjust like a better (much better) vitamin C1. We have to see. There might be negative consequences we don't know yet. 2. I am not at ease with improving health without effort -- I am more at ease with lifestyle choices and sport: at least there is a logic: those who make efforts benefit, those who don't don't.1. Yes. It has a series of very convincing results 2. We live longer than hundred years ago, not because we make more efforts- we rather make less.

Oge NnadiPeople can live longer than 120 yearsThe body has a programmed limit of 120 years and the body is too complex to be made to last longer

Paul SpiegelExtending lifespan is a fundamental human endeavor that mankind has pursued successfully for many thousands of years. Simple longevity techniques, such as agriculture, cooked food, hygiene, public sanitation, and even toothbrushing (!) have been used for so long to extend the human lifespan that we don't even think of them any more as "science" and take them for granted. Modern science allows us to continue the human endeavor to extend lifespan, and to make advances that would have been unimaginable even 100 years ago. As humans, we have an obligation to do this.A long, healthy and productive lifespan is not merely personal vanity. It helps to improve the human condition. Experience is valuable. Vital "elders" help younger members of the species to expand and thrive. Aging is a disease that can - and should - be fought and conquered, for the good of humanity.Scientific advances are making it possible for human beings to live healthy, vital lives in excess of 120 years. The goal is to extend lifespan while reducing decrepitude and misery.Man was meant to suffer and die. Death gives meaning to life. It is necessary to avoid overpopulation. Longevity is simply a caprice of the wealthy. Who wants to live longer if long life just means extended decrepitude and misery?If humans meekly accepted "the natural order of things", we would still be living in caves and eating raw meat. It is human nature to make things better for our species by whatever means are available to us. Healthy longevity is a benefit to society and aging is a disease that can be treated, managed and maybe even cured. We are working to do this, not only to extend the span of life but to extend its quality, reducing, and perhaps eliminating, decrepitude and misery.
