Show Notes 20 June 2010

HAPPY BIRTHDAY "K THE INTERN"
(Even tho she does not do the intern thing anymore)

Tonight on the program, our scheduled music guest had to reschedule so we spoke about some of the more important issues in the news such as the ongoing issues with the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico and how we are awaiting for something to be done to avoid global disaster; which may be already late. We discussed the fact that the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 allows the President to intervene with whatever resources he needs to keep a disaster like this from impacting the United States. Well, it has impacted the United States...severely and why has he not gotten behind this act of Congress and started getting busy?

We also covered some entertainment (movie) news and notes.

In our second hour, we had a close up interview with Dr. Aubrey de Grey. Dr. de Grey is a Biomedical Gerontologist; that is a scientist who studies new ways to combat aging. What Dr. de Grey has come up with is a plan to combat and abolish diseases that kill us, such as Alzheimer's Disease, Cancer and others. The side effect, if you will, is longevity of life. According to de Grey, we have spent so long thinking that we grow old and die and that is the way it is supposed to be. However, he believes that he can prove that if we do things that will help our bodies be free from cancers and illnesses that degrade us, we can in turn live to the ripe old age of 150, 500, 1000 or even 1 Million years young!

de Grey has been studying this for more than fifteen years now so he has the edge. Many scientists agree with him and many do not. We had the absolute pleasure to listen to him and there is no way that what he says doesn't make sense. It makes complete sense. In fact, he believes that we can be within 25-50 years from starting the therapy required to cure our bodies from the things that ail us. That means our first 150 year old could be among us today. That is not science-fiction...that is pure excitement!

If you would like to find out more about what Dr. de Grey is doing and how you can help, please visit his website below. He did tell us that even volunteer help by way of skills are much needed as money; either way, research is going well and money and resources can make things go much faster. So make a donation; $3 today to be cancer free? Sign me up.
