Is it true that fish don't age since their population is naturally so rapidly culled by predators that evolutionary processes don't require the elimination of earlier generations and the genetic experiments they embody? If so, then studying fish physiology might provide a clue to slowing the human aging process. A lot was written about a decade ago about a putative human 'death hormone' secreted by the pituitary gland, which sets the timer for us to age and die, but in patients who have had pituitary ablation for diabetic retinopathy in the 1960s the aging process continues.

 

What ever became of the work of Aslan on Gerovital to slow the aging process? It also occasioned great interest some years ago but I haven't heard anything about it recently.

Gerovital is still sold to the public for 'anti-ageing' purposes. However, there is very little new research about its effectiveness.
