For as long as modern medicine has existed researchers have been looking for the Holy Grail of health: an anti-aging pill that will effectively stop time in its tracks for those that take it. Is such a Fountain of Youth in a bottle possible? Can we hope to slow the aging process down substantially and significantly extend human life in the process?
