From today’s Wall Street Journal:
What if there were a way to stave off the creaks and calamities of old age? Nir Barzilai, director of the Institute for Aging Research at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, is working on it.
With word leaking out, seniors from all over the globe have been hounding Dr. Barzilai and his colleagues to get in on the action—with many writing to prove their worthiness. Never mind that formal patient recruitment is still perhaps a year away.
There was an old man who decided
the worship of youth was misguided.
For, he said brightly,
although I sleep lightly
my worries and wants have subsided.
