In this section we explore the anatomy of human body as well as the anatomy of other species and are working towards writing comprehensive articles on rejuvenating each organ and system of the body for each species. The desired outcome is of course robust human rejuvenation and research in other species is seen as the intermediate or stepping stone.

This section includes information subsections on the Genome, Proteome, Microbiome and mineral homeostasis. It also covers mitochondria, extra-cellular biology and cancer. This section helps to gather information that will help us to understand exactly what we are working with when we look to envisage rejuvenation therapies based around these niche environments.

Just as important as having a healthy body is to have a healthy mind. Staying in good mental shape is also crucial for meaningful and constructive relationships with other people in both your personal and professional life. We pursue rejuvenation of a healthy mind and staying a well balanced person that is a joy to be around.

The health section covers diet and supplements as well as drugs and medications. We also look at exercise and living conditions.

In one aspect of human rejuvenation we seek to restore and enhance intelligence both on the level of the individual and the entire

community. The type of tools we will use initially are related to neurobiofeedback. This is an exciting time for EEG related technologies as they are finally becoming available to the general public. We plan to become early adopters and innovators in this area.

Here will discuss theories on how cells and systems within the body stay youthful and healthy and what we can do to keep them that way. By maintaining a focus on the study of youthfulness we hope to make a big difference in the life extension scene and through positive and encouraging discussion and enlightenment.

Rejuvenation isn't just for people. We also plan to collect information about rejuvenation of natural environments, biospheres, atmospheres and ecosystems! We are most interested in raising the water table to irrigate the land using passive permaculture techniques.

From now on the Rejuvepedia project will stop ignoring the planet Mars. We whole heartedly support a manned mission to Mars and the establishment of permanent

human settlement there. We then want to Terra-form mars to Rejuvenate the planet to make it suitable for life as we know it.

I was sick off work today and I spent most of the day sleeping. One thing I would like to talk about is getting motivated more with my training and body building. I have recently started training with a personal trainer.

My trainer has made up a program for me and I have written this out again in libre office. I am going to show the program here. Rejuvepedia deals with body building as well as Rejuvenation. While I don't want to go encourage people to go overboard and train in a way that is unhealthy (e.g. taking steroids and stimulants) I don't like the other extreme of life extension advocates being very skinny due to following calorie restriction. I want to encourage people to develop a youthful and fit, athletic muscular body. Rejuvenating people so that they have the opportunity to build muscle is important. I am 31 and I would be a lot bigger today if I had of worked out a lot more in my 20's. If I can ensure my own rejuvenation I will get that opportunity again.


I have started to draw up a table with my new program here. I will expand on this showing more about these exercises and post videos as well as show which muscle groups these build on.

I intend to write about improving skin elasticity. Avoiding and repairing sun damage go a long way towards this. So does diet and supplementation. You can also exercise muscles under the skin. Some good supplements are magnesium citrate, CO-enzyme Q10, vitamin C and vitamin k2.

I would like to formally annouce project in-utero. Project in-utero is about enabling very Robust regenerative medicine.

I have found an interesting article about reprogramming cells about to become scar tissue in mice that have suffered a heart attack:

Reversing a heart attack: scientists reprogram scar tissue into working muscle

http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/science-sushi/2012/04/18/reversing-a-heart-attack-scientists-reprogram-scar-tissue-into-working-muscle/

"The researchers were able to use a virus-based system to deliver three key genes that guide embryonic heart development—Gata4, Mef2c and Tbx5 (GMT)—to areas of mouse hearts that were damaged in a heart attack. Within a month, cells that normally became scar tissue were beating away again as if they were not knocking on death’s door just 30 days before."

I don't think this works on already existing scar tissue just tissue that is about to scar but I should look into this further.

Body building and artificial sweetener concerns

I bought a 1kg tub of body building supplement today only to discover when I got home that it contains aspartame. I sent the following to their feedback form:

[quote]

I bought one of your products today for the first time. Max's muscle growth GTE from a health food store in Victoria Park Perth called Natural Choice. Later when I got home I had another look at the ingredients and I noticed that it contains sweeteners 950 and 951. I did a search from these and it says they are Aspartame 951, Acesulfame 950. I've read some bad stuff about aspartame and that it increased rates of leukemia in lab rats and that it is defended by war criminal donald rumsfeld. I am keen to build up muscle but want to be careful that I don't cause other health problems. Do you sell a product that does not contain aspartame?

[/quote]

I will update this with the response.

Cloning a Trachea

In the news there is a story about a man from Eritrea going to school in Iceland recovering from surgery in Sweden where a surgeon born in Italy recently gave him a new trachea grown in a bioreactor from the United States composed of synthetic scaffold designed in the United Kingdom and the man's own stem cells! The world is certainly getting smaller and the smaller it gets the more specialists like surgeon Paolo Macchiarini and others can collaborate to make stories like this possible. I'm posting this because it's a relevant update to a blog entry I made recently on Cloning.

NPR has a great podcast on this story where they cover the more human side of the science (see here). You might also be interested in earlier advances in cloning organs that go back to 1999 in cloning bladders: first, in dogs, now humans.

This cloning case is unique because until now, all trachea transplants involved using cadaver trachea as the "core" scaffold to grow stem cells around. So far there have been a handful of successful organs cloned in the same manner as this trachea. The technique basically starts with a synthetic material which serves as a scaffold for new cells to grow on. In the case of children where the organ will need to grow with the child, a biodegradable material is chosen for the scaffolding. Such

There are two main advantages for such a transplant

  • No wait for organ donors to become available.
  • No anti-rejection drugs needed.

Whether or not this kind of procedure can illuminate the need for all organ donors is yet to be seen.

There is a new p2p currency available called solidcoin. I would like to see this take off more as a currency rather than another speculation toy.

SolidCoin has faster blocks and difficulty changes.

Please try it now at http://www.solidcoin.info

We will soon accept donations in solidcoin and may even offer solidcoins to people that blog here.
