Money rule the world, so it's not a secret that immortality, longevity and anti-aging research desperately needs money.

Governments, as being generally sluggish are not investing enough into immortality research. They are putting money in medical research, but in wrong one. Instead of seeing the big picture and solving the cause of the aging related diceases, which is aging itself, they focus on fighting the symptoms of those diceases, which gives only short terms results.
Educating governments and getting funds from them is surely number one goal for every organization that does anti-aging research. But until they will understand the problem we need the help of companies and people like you.

We recommend you to donate your funds to SENS Research Foundation.
