Mark my words. When the first real treatment happens people will change their tune. They need to see it work and see that it’s safe.

A new study of about 900 U.S. adults has found that only 33% would use a hypothetical life extension treatment that would allow them “to live forever,” even if it were available today. About 42% said they would not use it, and 25% said they were unsure.

The study, published by University of Texas researchers Michael Barnett and Jessica Helphrey, appeared in the Journal of Aging Studies on April 21.
