About This Site

Aging Research: Scientists today are discovering much more about aging than ever before, thanks to huge advances in basic biological sciences and research tools. No one knows which findings will prove most important in the future. Meanwhile fascinating hints from laboratory and animal studies might contribute to healthier and longer human lives. But serious obstacles to human trials keep knowledge inconclusive, and therefore outside of standard medical practice. Many lives will be lost unless we learn to do better. offers easy search and access to over 3,000 recent news reports on aging research, healthy aging, and related issues. Most of our news comes from press releases issued by universities when their scientists publish research findings in peer-reviewed journals. Most of the articles we link to were written for the general public, not only for doctors or scientists.

For example, click the "Parkinson's" button to see about 90 science and news articles on Parkinson's disease, published in 2016 or 2015 (more recent news is near the top of the list). If we had Parkinson's we would certainly want to know that this information exists - same for other health conditions as well. Doctors often don't know, as they are discouraged from using new research information that is not part of the accepted standard of care - a good policy sometimes but not always.

Do we see all the important medical news? No, there is too much. We want to hear from you about what we missed; see Contact, below. But this site is a place to find interesting leads, not as a comprehensive listing of credible medical advances in the news.

Because we are ad-free not commercial we can focus on providing value, not ads. Compare user experience here with that of major news sites. (And this site should scale well to heavy use.)

Our background: For 20 years we published and mostly wrote AIDS Treatment News, a similar newsletter on a different fatal disease, AIDS. We made thousands of judgment calls on what was credible and important for our readers. See Underground Press Leads Way on AIDS Advice, New York Times, 1991. That experience helps us report on aging (which is more complicated than AIDS, since less is known about the cause, and there are many competing theories). It helps that at age 75, we have a personal interest in this information.

Theories of aging: We don't have one. No one knows the answer. So we look for interesting findings, capabilities, and other advances, from whatever theories they come. With so much unknown about aging today, unexpected advances may be the best opportunity to further scientific understanding, together with analysis and theory. In other words, let empirical observation and discovery guide the development of theory - especially with aging, where we have so little understanding and agreement about critical root causes and where to intervene.

User Experience: the Usability Crisis Today

When commercial news sites abuse their readers to sell ads, we link to another report of the same news on a better site if possible. Examples of abuse include:

Most of the owners and operators of sites that do this would never treat their personal or business associates with such disrespect. What does that say about the human future and quality of life in an increasingly automated world?

A Path Forward

Without intrusive ads, how will companies earn money for online content?

The most effective online ads we have seen are no usability problem at all: recommendations from Amazon's "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought," for example. We almost never respond to other online ads but have learned about and purchased many books referred that way. Imagine the value of something similar for entertainment and beyond - people who like movies X and Y also liked movies A, B, and C, websites D and E, musicians and artists F, G, and H, hiking trail I, online courses J and K, local coffeehouses or restaurants L, M, and N, and professional careers O and P.

The modern world is so complex that many people (maybe most) miss their calling just by chance - and here, big data could help. People might even be willing to pay to receive such recommendations - if they are not just another excuse for an ad but high quality and useful, like the Amazon book recommendations are.

Getting the data may be hard, but probably can be done. Many adults don't much care about their own online privacy and might be willing to share (for example, GPS data that shows what stores, movies, concerts, or other venues they went to, how long they stayed, and almost everything they purchased), in return for a low-price phone that works very well and has plenty of free data. A 5% to 10% sample of the buying population might be enough, and could be corrected statistically for selection bias as it proceeds, so that results will apply to a larger group, not just the sample. Such customer targeting could be open, not sneaky, because it would be based on legitimate informed consent.

Separately, we proposed a less harmful way to charge for online art, journalism, or other content; see The idea is to offer sponsors (anyone) a chance to get their message out to highly targeted and otherwise-unreachable audiences, reducing the need to make all end users pay (in money or wasted attention).


Appearance: Note larger type for older visitors (since aging has not been stopped yet). And the reddish background reduces the blue light that interferes most with sleep if screens are used near bedtime. (Red text on a black background might be best for sleep, but doesn't work for everyone; so we may add optional color themes in the future.)

Javascript should be running: About 1% of Web visits these days don't have Javascript running. In that case the blue and green buttons will stay faded and this site's search will not work. But you can still use your browser's search. All the information is there, but without Javascript, searching is less convenient. Easiest workaround: turn on Javascript in your browser, or use another browser.

Known glitch, August 2016: With the Google Chrome browser or Microsoft Edge browser, if you do a search and then read one of the found news articles, and return to this site from that article with the Back button, the browser refreshes our site, and you may have to scroll up to the buttons and then do your search again, to read more of the articles found by the search. We tested Chrome on Windows 10, a Macintosh desktop, and an Android phone - always with the same result, so the problem is with the browser not the operating system. Firefox (tested on Windows 10 and Linux Mint) and Safari both work fine.

So if you need to use Chrome or Edge, the best workaround for now is to open the news articles in separate windows, by doing control-click instead of click on the link to those articles. Then your search results on this site remain unaffected.

We are looking for a fix that does not require our visitors to change the settings on their Chrome or Edge browsers.


We do not save or share IP addresses or other information that may identify users. But we do use statistics from the logs, and do not control the privacy policies of ISPs or other companies that the data passes through. So if you want to keep medical searches confidential, we suggest: (1) Use a computer and network access not easily traced to you, if possible. (2) Use https instead of http whenever possible. And (3) if you are using a public computer, erase the history from the browser when you are done. (Or better, use the "incognito" option on Google Chrome, or the similar "Private Browsing" option on Firefox).

Currently these searches are done entirely locally on your computer or phone. So our server only knows that you downloaded the database; neither it nor we see what you searched for. You can even save a copy of our database for offline use - just save it like any other Web page. Of course you do need to be online to obtain the news articles from the external sites [hint: usually writing down just two words in sequence from the title will be enough to get back to that item later when you are online - avoid very common words, for example a search for "of the" finds more than 30 items]. Soon we will add articles we write to this database, and then we will host those articles and keep statistics on their use.
