Default 150 supps a day - Google exec Kurweil

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...mortality.html

Meet the Google executive who plans to cheat death: Ray Kurzweil takes 150 vitamins a day so he can 'hold out long enough for invention of robots that will keep humans alive'

Quote:
Google engineering director and futurist Ray Kurzweil believes we are close to realizing everlasting life and is dead-set on getting us there.

The inventor and noted author believes the key to such a scientific breakthrough is a system of 'bridges' that enable the body to move from strength to strength over time.

The youthful 65-year-old currently takes 150 supplements a day, which he argues if the first bridge.

The idea is to build enough bridges to ensure the body holds out long enough for life-lengthening technology to come into its own.

He has likened the biology of the body to computer software and believes we are all 'out of date'.

150 a day jeez, I bet they're not the cheap varieties either...that guy must rattle a bit. They're obviously not working, he wears glasses and if his sight is going, so is everything else.

Good luck to him, but I don't think the odds are that great of it succeeding.

You can go on Pubmed and find research studies on hundreds of compounds that might potentially offer life extension effect. Many of these are in animal models or in humans but looking at a limited range of parameters over a short period of time. Whether these actually translate into a measurable impact on life expectancy is an entirely different question.

Vitamin supplements looked hopeful in reducing the incidence of cancers, but the big long-term trials have produced very mixed results and as things stand there isn't any robust evidence that they help. I suspect that this guy, bright as he undoubtedly is, might be doing a lot of hopeful extrapolation on the basis of some fairly limited data sets.
