Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Hormone imbalances are unique because they dont heal. When one of more of your hormone levels become imbalanced, they can lead to symptoms that if not addressed can persist or lead to more serious problems. These levels can be balanced with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Bio-identical hormones are substances that are biochemically identical to your bodys own hormones. Because of this, BHRT has been found to be safer and more effective than synthetic hormones with fewer side effects.

After taking an in-depth history to assess your specific situation and ordering lab testing to check your hormone levels, Dr. Hopp can recommend a specialized regimen to help optimize your hormone levels. For many men and women, addressing hormone imbalances can have a major impact on their symptoms and overall improve their lives!

The short answer: yes! The use of hormone replacement to address hormonal symptoms was used as early as the 1950s. During the 1970s in Europe, many practitioners switched to bio-identical hormones after they were shown to be safer than synthetic hormones. Studies have demonstrated that the use of BHRT reduces the risk of many leading causes of illness and death for both men and women. These include:

Many patients, especially women, are familiar with the clinical trial published by the Womens Health Initiative in 2002. The conclusions of this study showed that hormone replacement therapy can cause increased risk of breast cancer, heart attack, stroke and blood clots. Many practitioners immediately stopped prescribing hormones after this trial was widely publicized. We want to make an important distinction here: synthetic vs. bio-identical hormones.

The WHI trial used oral synthetic estrogen and progestins. At TLC, Dr. Hopp prescribes bio-identical hormones. Your body sees these supplemental hormones the same as hormones produced naturally in your body. The use of bio-identical hormones does not increase the risk of cancer or cardiovascular disease and the use of bio-identical progesterone may be protective against breast cancer.

If you think you may benefit from BHRT, please call our office at 720-351-2411 to set up an appointment!

What are Bio-identical Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones (BHRT) are substances that biochemically identical to your bodies own hormones and therefore have been found to be safer and more effective with less side effects. A compounding pharmacist can formulate a personalized prescription that our office will prescribe by taking an in depth history and evaluating cutting edge functional labs. We also offer hormone pellets and have more experience than anyone in our area using bio identical hormones.

Hot Flashes,Night Sweats,Mood Swings,Insomnia,Depression,Headaches,Fatigue,Loss Sex Drive,Brain Fog, Memory Lapse,Hair Loss, Weight Gain,Joint Pain, Stress Incontinence,Vaginal Dryness / Pain, Acne or Dry skin

The Womens Health Initiative Study found that the use of oral synthetic non bio identical estrogen and progestin increased the risk of breast cancer, heart attack, stroke and blood clots. However, the use of bio identical natural hormones does not increase risk and the use of estriol has even been found to be protective against breast cancer.

The use of hormone replacement to relieve symptoms (there are 400 functions of estrogen) has been done since the 1950s with a change made to bio identical hormones in Europe in the 1970s to improve the safety. Studies have since demonstrated that the use of BHRT reduces the risk of all the leading causes of death for men and women such as:

At Rejuv Medical Louisville, we have been caring for women and men with hormone issues for over 15 years and take a comprehensive approach to your health care. We will work with you to identify what your hormone imbalances are, explain our findings and build a unique program just for you. We call this Personalized Medicine. Dr. Baird is board certified in Anti Aging Medicine and is one of a few local physicians who have completed the International Society for Sexual Medicine training as well. He was one of the first physicians prescribing BHRT in our area and is able to give you the choice of hormone pellets, crmes, pills, shots or even the type Suzanne Somers uses (TS Wiley). We use bio identical hormones and nutritional supplements to balance to address all your personal concerns and recommend lifestyle and dietary changes with education and coaching to enhance your well being to meet your goals to optimal health.

Target Audience:

The termNano medicineencompasses a broad range of technologies and materials. Types of nanomaterials that have been investigated for use as drugs,, drug carriersor other Nonmedical agents. There has been steep growth in development of devices that integrate nanomaterials or other nanotechnology. Thenanotechnology-based medical devices market is categorized into three major segments, namely, therapeutic applications, diagnostics applications, and research applications. Rising incidence of lifestyle and age-related disorders (such as cardiovascular and hearing disorders) has contributed significantly to the growth of the nanotechnology-based active implantable devices market. Nanotechnology, or systems/device manufacture at the molecular level, is a multidisciplinary scientific field undergoing explosive development. The genesis of nanotechnology can be traced to the promise of revolutionary advances across medicine, communications and genomics. On the surface, miniaturization provides cost effective and more rapidlyfunctioningbiological components. Less obvious though is the fact that Nanometer sized objects also possess remarkableself-ordering and assemblybehaviors under the control of forces quite different from macro objects.

Advances in technology have increased our ability to manipulate the world around us . Nanotechnology is rapidly emerging within the realm of medicine. Nanomedicine is the process of diagnosing, treating, and preventing disease andtraumatic injury, of relieving pain, and of preserving and improving human health, using molecular tools and molecular knowledge of the human body. An exciting and promising area of Nano technological development is the building of Nanorobots. Highly precise positioning techniques are required in Miniaturing in chip technology, optics , micro mechanic, medicine , gene and biotechnology. The new manipulation technology is the desire to enter the micro and Nano world not only by viewing but also acting, alteringmicro andNanosized objects. Nanorobots plays a critical roles for many applications in the human body, such astargetingtumoral lesionsfor therapeutic purposes, miniaturization of the power source with an effective onboard controllable propulsion and steering system have prevented the implementation of such mobile robots.

The therapeutic properties of light have been known for thousands of years, but it was only in the last century that photodynamic therapy (PDT) was developed. It is an emerging modality for the treatment of a variety of diseases that require the killing of pathological cells (e.g. cancer cells or infectious micro-organisms) or the removal of unwanted tissue (e.g. neovascularization in the choroid or atherosclerotic plaques in the arteries). It is based on the excitation of nontoxic photosensitizers.Photodynamic therapy(PDT) uses the combination of dyes with visible light to produce reactive oxygen species and kill bacteria and destroy unwanted tissue. Nanotechnology plays a great role insolubilizing thephotosensitizers, metal nanoparticles can carry out Plasmon resonance enhancement, andfullerenescan act as photosensitizers, themselves.

Nanotechnology is becoming increasingly important for the several sectors. Promising results and applications are already being developed in the areas of nutrient delivery systems through bioactive Nano encapsulation,biosensorsto detect and quantifypathogens organic compounds. The sensitivity and performance of biosensors is being improved by using nanomaterials for their construction. The use of these nanomaterials has allowed the introduction of many new signal transduction technologies in biosensors. Many scientists have involved themselves to know the application and the benefits of nanotechnology in different areas of food industry that include bioactive Nano encapsulation, edible thin film, packages andNano sensors.

Green chemistry and Nano science are both emerging fields that take advantage of molecular-level designing and have enormous potential for advancing our science. Nano science is the study of materials that are on the length-scale of 100 nanometers or smaller and have properties that are dependent on their physical size. The principles of green chemistry can guide responsible development of Nano science, while the new strategies of Nano science can fuel the development ofgreener productsand processes.Phytochemicalsoccluded in tea have been extensively used as dietary supplements and as naturalpharmaceuticalsin the treatment The parallel development of green chemistry and Nano science and the potential synergy of the two fields can lead to more successful and profitable technologies with reduced environmental impacts and improved conservation of resources. In recent years, green synthesis ofmetal nanoparticlesis an interesting issue of the nanoscience.

Nanotechnologyis enabling technology that deals with Nano-meter sized objects. It is expected that nanotechnology will be developed at several levels: materials, devices and systems. The combination of biology and nanotechnology has led to a new generation ofNano devicesthat opens the possibility to characterize the chemical, physical, mechanical, and other molecular properties. And it can be even used to characterize the single molecules or cells at extraordinarily high throughput.Nanoparticleswith distinctive chemical compositions, sizes, shapes, and surface chemistries can be engineered easily and this technique has wide range of applications in biological systems.Utility of nanotechnology to biomedical sciences imply creation of materials and devices designed tointeraction in sub-cellular scaleswith a high degree of specificity.

Biopolymer nanoparticles are offering numerous advantages which embrace the simplicity of their preparation from well-understood biodegradable, biocompatible polymers and their high stability inbiological fluidsduring storage. Since the emergence of Nanotechnology in the past decades, the development and design of organic andbioorganic nanomaterialshas become an important field of research. And several types of polymers have been tested and are used in drug delivery systems; including nanoparticles, dendrimers, capsosomes and micelles. Researchers have found, the synthesized polymers even serves as a good carrier and plays a vital role in carrying a drug. And in other hand they are used in food industries too for food package purposes. There are thousands of organic chemicals are in present in various pharmaceutical to consumer product and are being used in dyes, flavoring agents. It can be explained in organic compounds ranging in diameter from 10 to 1m.Ultrafine particlesare the same asnanoparticlesand between 1 and 100 nanometers in size, fine particles are sized between 100 and 2,500 nanometers, and coarse particles cover a range between 2,500 and 10,000nanometers.

The biological synthesis ofnanoparticlesis synthesis method through which we can control, size and shape of nanoparticles and it increasingly regarded as a rapid, ecofriendly, and easily scaled-up technology. Over the past few years researches have shown their interest inmetallic nanoparticlesand their synthesis has greatly increased. However, drawbacks such as the involvement oftoxic chemicalsand the high-energy requirements of production. Synthesizing living organisms such as bacteria, fungi and plants is an alternative way to overcome the drawbacks. Plant mediated synthesis of nanoparticles is the green chemistry that connects. Generally, metal nanoparticles are synthesized and stabilized by using physical and chemical: the chemical approach, such as chemical reduction,electrochemical techniques,photochemical reactionsin reverse micelles. There is a growing attention to biosynthesis the metal nanoparticles using organisms. Among these organisms, plants seem to be the best candidate and they are suitable for large scale biosynthesis of nanoparticles.

Nanoparticles used asdrug deliveryvehicles are generally below 100 nm , and are coated with different biodegradable materials such as natural or synthetic polymers (PEG,PVA,PLGA,etc.), lipids, or metals , it plays significant role on cancer treatment as well as it holds tremendous potential as an effective drug delivery system. A targeted drug delivery system (TDDS) is a system, which releases the drug in a controlled manner. Nanosystems with different compositions and biological properties have been extensively investigated for drug and gene delivery applications. To achieve efficient drug delivery it is important to understand the interactions ofNanomaterialswith the biological environment, targetingcell-surface receptors, drug release, multiple drug administration, stability of therapeutic agents. Nanotechnology refers to structures roughly in the 1100 nm size regime in at least one dimension. Despite this size restriction, nanotechnology commonly refers to structures that are up to several hundred nanometers in size and that are developed bytop-down or bottom-up engineering of individual components.

Nanosuspention formulation can be used to improve the solubility of the poorly soluble drugs. One of the major problems associated with poorly soluble drugs is very low bioavailability. The Preparation ofNanosuspentionis simple and applicable to all drugs which are water insoluble. It consists of the pure poorly water-soluble drug without any matrix material suspended in dispersion . Various techniques are used for the enhancement of the solubility of poorly soluble drugs which include physical and chemical modifications of drug and other methods like particle size reduction,crystal engineering, salt formation, solid dispersion, use ofsurfactant, complexation A range of parameters like solubility, stability at room temperature, compatibility with solvent, excipient, andphotostabilityplay a critical role in the successful formulation of drugs. Use of some drug which is potentially restricted because of its toxic side-effects and its poor solubility, making it unsuitable for intravenous use in patients withdrug malabsorption.

Nano medicine drives the convergence of nanotechnology and medicine it is delineated as the application of nanotechnology in healthcare. The field of tissue engineering has developed in phases: initially researchers searched for inert biomaterialsto act solely as replacement structures in the body. Tissue engineering is classified as an associate field of biomaterialsand engineering. It focuses on the use of cellular and material-based therapies aimed attargeted tissue regenerationcaused by traumatic, degenerative, and genetic disorders.It covers a broad range of applications, in practice the term has come to represent applications that repair or replace structural tissues (i.e., bone, cartilage, blood vessels, bladder, etc.). Today, these Nano scale technologies are coming to the forefront in medicine because of their biocompatibility, tissue-specificity, and integration and ability to act as therapeutic carriers.

Polymeric nanoparticles (NPs) are one of the most studied organic strategies for Nano medicine. Intense interest lies in the potential ofpolymeric NPsto revolutionize modern medicine. Polymeric NPs include drug delivery techniques such as conjugation and entrapment of drugs,prodrugs, stimuli-responsive systems,imaging modalities, and theranostics.The use of biodegradable polymeric nanoparticles (NPs) for controlled drug delivery has shown significanttherapeutic potential. Concurrently, targeted delivery technologies are becoming increasingly important as a scientific area of investigation. Polymericnanoparticles-based therapeutics show great promise in the treatment of a wide range of diseases, due to the flexibility in which their structures can be modified, with intricate definition over their compositions, structures and properties. Advances in polymerizationchemistries and the application of reactive, efficient andorthogonal chemicalmodification reactionshave enabled the engineering of multifunctional polymericnanoparticles.

In recent years,microbubbleand Nano bubble technologies have drawn great attention due to their wide applications in many fields of science and technology, such as water treatment,biomedical engineering, and nanomaterials.Nano bubblesexhibit unique characteristics; due to their minute size and high internal pressure, they can remain stable in water for prolonged periods of time. Nanobubbles can be created whengold nanoparticlesare struck by short laser pulses. The short-lived bubbles are very bright and can be made smaller or larger by varying the power of the laser. Because they are visible under a microscope, nanobubbles can be used to either diagnose sick cells or to track the explosions that are destroying them.

Natural productshave been used in medicine for many years. Many top-sellingpharmaceuticalsare natural compounds or their derivatives.. And plant- or microorganism-derived compounds have shown potential as therapeutic agents against cancer, microbial infection, inflammation, and other disease conditions. Natural products had huge success in the post-World War II era as antibiotics, and the two terms have become synonymous.While large pharmaceutical companies have favored screening synthetic compound libraries for drug discovery, small companies have started to explore natural products uses against cancer, microbial infection, inflammation, and other diseases.The incorporation of nanoparticles into a delivery system for natural products would be a major advance in the efforts to increase their therapeutic effects. Recently, advances have been made showing that nanoparticles can significantly increase the bioavailability of natural products bothin vitro and in vivo.

Nanoscience and nanotechnology are new frontiers of this century and food nanotechnology is an emerging technology. Food technology is regarded as one of the industry sectors where nanotechnology will play an important role in the future. The development of new products and applications involving nanotechnologies holds great promise in different industrial sectors, Nanotechnology may revolutionize the food industry by providing stronger, high-barrier packaging materials, more potentantimicrobial agents. Several possibilities exist to exploit the benefits of nanotechnologies during different phases of the food chain with the aim to enhance animal nutrition and health. Several complex set of engineering and scientific challenges in the food and bioprocessing industries for manufacturing high quality and safe food through efficient and sustainable means can be solved through nanotechnology. Bacteria identification and food quality monitoring using biosensors; intelligent, active, and smart food packaging systems; and Nanoencapsulationofbioactive food compoundsare few examples of emerging applications of nanotechnology for the food industry.

The main current applications of Nanotechnology for surgeons are in the areas of development of surgical implants using Nanomaterials, Imaging, Drug Delivery and development of Tissue Engineering products, such as scaffolds with enhanced materialcell interaction. An example of this is the development of a scaffold for delivery of stem cells to replace defective retinal pigmented epithelial cells in age-related Macular Degeneration. In Dentistry research has been done, liposomal Nanoparticles that contained collagenase and performed tests with them in rats, and found compared to conventional surgery, collagenase weakened the collagen fibers, making it easier to shift the teeth afterward with braces.

Nanoparticles with their unique size-dependent properties are at the forefront of advanced material engineering applications in several fields. Metals, non-metals, bio-ceramics, and manypolymeric materialsare used to produce nanoparticles of the respective materials. These are functional in producing liposomes, PEG and many more. Due to their small size nanoparticles has found to be interacting with human bodies same like of gases. Nanoparticles of the same composition can display behavioral differences when interacting with different environments. Nanoparticles can enter the human body via inhalation, ingestion, or skin contact. The range of pathologiesrelated to exposure tonanoparticles encompasses respiratoryand even several organs and leads to diseases. Accurate in vitro assessment ofnanoparticle cytotoxicityrequires a careful selection of the test systems. Due to high adsorption capacity and optical activity, engineered nanoparticles are highly potential in influencing classical cytotoxicity assays.

One of the exciting features of nanotechnology is its utility in the field of Nano medicine, therapeutics, and medical devices . When these small size materials are introduced into biological systems, their extremely small size and their unique Nano scale properties make it possible to use them as delivery vectors and probes for biological diagnostics,bioimagingand therapeutics. In fact, when size decreases, thesurface area to volume ratioof materials becomes very large, so that a vast suitable surface is available forchemical interactions withbiomolecules. This critically implied that nanotechnology is facing a transition into the tangible advancement ofhuman therapeutics. Recently, There are multiple clinical trials of nanomaterials have done; both for therapeutics and for medical devices.

Testosterone Replacement: Options for Treatment Have …

The first thing to understand about testosterone replacement is that oral testosterone (pills taken by mouth) doesnt really work because it is broken down so quickly by the liver. The solution to this problem involves patches, gels, shots, and even nasal sprays. Here are your options, with some new players in the game.

Androderm patches are meant to be worn on the arm or torso. Androderm patches deliver approximately 5 mg of testosterone per 24 hours and result in normal testosterone levels in the majority of hypogonadal men. These have been around for a while.

Four testosterone gels are available: AndroGel, Testim, Fortesta, and Axiron.

The option of intramuscular injections is a good one, though it requires office visits. Injections are usually given one shot of 100 mg, once a week for 12 weeks. Regimens of 300 mg every three weeks and 400 mg every four weeks can also be used. An advantage of the shots for men is the freedom from daily administration of a gel or patch, while the disadvantages are the need for a shot of an oily solution every one to three weeks.

Natestois the first nasaltestosteronegel approved in the United States for the treatment of male hypogonadism andtestosteronedeficiency.Natestois a metered-dose pump applicator that places the gel into the nostrils.

The good thing?Because this gel is applied inside of the nostril, there is little chance of transferringtestosteroneto women or children who come into close physical contact with the person using the intranasal gel. That can occur with the gels and patches used on the skin.

There are some disadvantages.Some men wont like that it needs to be used three times daily. People with allergies or underlying nasal or sinus problems also may not likeNatestoas a runny nose, sore throatand sinusitis are among the most common side effects.


Dr. O.

Most options for testosterone replacement are considered Tier 2 drugs by many insurance plans, though they may fall under higher copays or may not be covered with some plans. Androderm patches and all gel options run about $550-$600 per month or per prescription (for 30 patches or one container of gel). Testosterone shots are significantly less expensive, with generic versions sometimes available for as little as $20 per dose.

Men, Low T, and the Facts | Lifespan

What is testosterone?

Testosterone is a hormone. For men, it is primarily produced in the testicles. It is most often associated with sex drive, but also plays a role in bone and muscle mass and can affect how the body stores fat. Even a mans mood can be impacted by testosterone levels.

It seems as if recently we have heard a lot about Low T. That is the more popular name for a condition known as testosterone deficiency, or hypogonadism. This deficiency can be seen through laboratory findings as well as through physical symptoms, which may include:

In addition to the typical symptoms of Low T, men who have below normal levels of this hormone may experience a sense of ill-being, foreboding, or feeling as if something is terribly wrong, but not knowing what. Men may also report fatigue, inadequate sleep, increased irritability, and poor mood.

If a man exhibits symptoms of testosterone deficiency, the best way to confirm is with morning blood tests, drawn on two separate days, to measure the levels of testosterone. If both tests show levels below 300 ng/dl (nanograms per deciliter), the diagnosis may be confirmed.

Causes include:

There are two types of low testosterone. The first is due to reduced production of testosterone from the testes, known as classical, or primary hypogonadism. This often appears in younger men, from conditions such as testicular cancer, testicular trauma or torsion (strangulation), or a congenital condition.

The second is decreased stimulation of the testes from the pituitary gland within the brain. This is known as secondary hypogonadism and it occurs more often in middle-aged and older men. This is the kind of Low T that is usually associated with obesity and other medical conditions described above.

The basis of Low T may be inflammation due to the other diseases present with Low T, or some men may have a genetic predisposition to low testosterone levels. Not all men with low levels will show the signs and symptoms of testosterone deficiency.

Like with so many other conditions, weight loss, adequate regular physical activity, and a healthy diet are the best ways a man can prevent Low T. Weight loss can also help men to improve other medical problems that are associated with Low T, including high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and elevated lipids or blood fats.

Fortunately, there are several options for treatment of Low T. To be most effective, a healthy diet and exercise is recommended with any form of testosterone treatment.

It is important for a man to be checked when he is showing signs of testosterone deficiency. If Low T is left untreated, men often experience a sense of impending doom, poor health, and fear. Men may also experience increased weight gain in the mid-section, have difficulties with focus and concentration, poor motivation, reduced memory, and perhaps difficulty engaging with others.

Men should seek medical attention when clinical signs and symptoms are present and before illness progresses too far. Men notoriously wait until the last moment to seek medical care. It is recommended that men see a physician once every three years until age 40, every two years after age 40, and every year or two after age 50, or more often as needed for managing other medical conditions.

It is important to remember that help is available. If you are experiencing signs of Low T, our Mens Health Center, now celebrating its 10th anniversary, can help. Learn more about our center here.

Importance of Good Nutrition |

Your food choices each day affect your health how you feel today, tomorrow, and in the future.

Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Combined with physical activity, your diet can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases (like heart disease and cancer), and promote your overall health.

Unhealthy eating habits have contributed to the obesity epidemic in the United States: about one-third of U.S. adults (33.8%) are obese and approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 219 years are obese.1 Even for people at a healthy weight, a poor diet is associated with major health risks that can cause illness and even death. These include heart disease, hypertension (high blood pressure), type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and certain types of cancer. By making smart food choices, you can help protect yourself from these health problems.

The risk factors for adult chronic diseases, like hypertension and type 2 diabetes, are increasingly seen in younger ages, often a result of unhealthy eating habits and increased weight gain. Dietary habits established in childhood often carry into adulthood, so teaching children how to eat healthy at a young age will help them stay healthy throughout their life.

The link between good nutrition and healthy weight, reduced chronic disease risk, and overall health is too important to ignore. By taking steps to eat healthy, you’ll be on your way to getting the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy, active, and strong. As with physical activity, making small changes in your diet can go a long way, and it’s easier than you think!

Now that you know the benefits, it’s time to start eating healthy: start your PALA+ journey today and use these tips on ways to eating healthy and resources to earn it.

The Ethics Of Transhumanism And The Cult Of Futurist Biotech

Cryogenic pods. Computer illustration of people in cryogenic pods. Their bodies are being preserved by storing them at very low temperatures. They will remain frozen until a time when the technology might exist to resurrect the dead, a technique known as cryonics. Alternatively a new body may be cloned from their tissue. Some companies offer to store dead peoples bodies.

Transhumanism (also abbreviated as H+) is a philosophical movement which advocates for technology not only enhancing human life, but to take over human life by merging human and machine. The idea is that in one future day, humans will be vastly more intelligent, healthy, and physically powerful. In fact, much of this movement is based upon the notion that death is not an option with a focus to improve the somatic body and make humans immortal.

Certainly, there are those in the movement who espouse the most extreme virtues of transhumanism such as replacing perfectly healthy body parts with artificial limbs. But medical ethicists raise this and other issues as the reason why transhumanism is so dangerous to humans when what is considered acceptable life-enhancement has virtually no checks and balances over who gets a say when we go too far. For instance, Kevin Warwick of Coventry University, a cybernetics expert, asked the Guardian, What is wrong with replacing imperfect bits of your body with artificial parts that will allow you to perform better or which might allow you to live longer? while another doctor stated that he would have no part in such surgeries. There is, after all, a difference between placing a pacemaker or performing laser eye surgery on the body to prolong human life and lend a greater degree of quality to human life, and that of treating the human body as a tabula rasa upon which to rewrite what is, effectively, the natural course of human life.

A largely intellectual movement whose aim is to transform humanity through the development of a panoply of technologies which ostensibly enhance human intellect, physiology, and the very legal status of what being human means, transhumanism is a social project whose inspiration can be dated back to 19th century continental European philosophy and later through the writings of J. B. S. Haldane, a British scientist and Marxist, who in 1923 delivered a speech at the Heretics Society, an intellectual club at Cambridge University, entitled Daedalus or, Science and the Future which foretold the future of the end of ofcoalfor power generation in Britain while proposing a network of windmills which would be used for the electrolytic decomposition of water into oxygen and hydrogen (they would generate hydrogen). According to many transhumanists, this is one of the founding projects of the movement. To read this one might think this was a precursor to the contemporary ecological movement.

The philosophical tenets, academic theories, and institutional practices of transhumanism are well-known.Max More, a British philosopher and leader of the extropian movement claims that transhumanism is the continuation and acceleration of the evolution of intelligent life beyond its currently human form and human limitations by means of science and technology, guided by life-promoting principles and values. This very definition, however, is a paradox since the ethos of this movement is to promote life through that which is not life, even by removing pieces of life, to create something billed as meta-life. Indeed, it is clear that transhumanism banks on its own contradiction: that life is deficient as is, yet can be bettered by prolonging life even to the detriment of life.

Stefan Lorenz Sorgneris a German philosopher and bioethicist who has written widely on the ethical implications of transhumanism to include writings on cryonics and longevity of human life, all of which which go against most ecological principles given the amount of resources needed to keep a body in suspended animation post-death. At the heart of Sorgners writings, like those of Kyle Munkittrick, invoke an almost nave rejection of death, noting that death is neither natural nor a part of human evolution. In fact, much of the writings on transhumanism take a radical approach to technology: anyone who dare question that cutting off healthy limbs to make make way for a super-Olympian sportsperson would be called a Luddite, anti-technology. But that is a false dichotomy since most critics of transhumanism are not against all technology, but question the ethics of any technology that interferes with the human rights of humans.

Take for instance the recent push by many on the ostensible Left who favor surrogacy as a step on the transhumanist ladder, with many publications on this subject, none so far which address the human rights of women who are not only part of this equation, but whose bodies are being used in the this faux-futurist vision of life without the mention of female bodies. Versos publication of a troubling piece by Sophie Lewis earlier this year, aptly titled Gestators of All Genders Unite speaks to the lack of ethics in a field that seems to be grasping at straws in removing the very mention of the bodies which reproduce and give birth to human life: females. In eliminating the specificity of the female body, Lewis attempts to stitch together a utopian future where genders are having children, even though the reality of reproduction across the Mammalia class demonstrates that sex, not gender, determines where life is gestated and birthed. What Lewis attempts in fictionalizing a world of dreamy hopefulness actually resembles more an episode of The Handmaids Tale where this writer has lost sense of any irony. Of course pregnancy is not about gender. It is uniquely about sex and the class of gestators are females under erasure by this dystopian movement anxious to pursue a vision of a world without women.

While many transhumanist ideals remain purely theoretical in scope, what is clear is that females are the class of humans who are being theorised out of social and political discourse. Indeed, much of the social philosophy surrounding transhumanist projects sets out to eliminate genderin the human species through the application of advanced biotechnology andassisted reproductive technologies, ultimately inspired by Shulamith Firestone’sThe Dialectic of Sex and much of Donna Haraways writing on cyborgs. From parthenogenesisto the creation ofartificial wombs, this movement seeks to remove the specificity of not gender, but sex, through the elision of medical terminology and procedures which portend to advance a technological human-cyborg built on the ideals of a post-sex model.

The problem, however, is that women are quite aware that sex-based inequality has zilch to do with anything other than their somatic sex. And nothing transhumanist theories can propose will wash away the reality of the sexed human body upon which social stereotypes are plied.

Immortality Medicine –

Humans have wanted to live forever for as long as weve lived at all. Its an obsession that stretches back so far that it feels like its somehow hard-coded into our DNA. Over the years, immortality (to a greater or lesser extent) has been promised by everyone from religions and cults to the cosmetics industry, big tech companies and questionable food blogs.

Its also a staple of fiction, all the way back to the earliest surviving great work of literature. The Epic of Gilgamesh, carved onto stone tablets in 2100 BC, depicts its titular king hunting for the secret of eternal life, which he finds in a plant that lives at at the bottom of the sea. He collects the plant by roping stones to his feet, but then a snake steals it while hes having a pre-immortality bath. Gilgamesh has a little cry, then gives up.

A cuneiform tablet containing part of The Epic of Gilgamesh.

The reason why we age is still the subject of major scientific debate, but it basically boils down to damage accumulating in our cells throughout our lives, which eventually kills us. By slowing that damage first by making tools, then controlling fire, inventing writing, trade, agriculture, logic, the scientific method, the industrial revolution, democracy and so on, weve managed to massively increase human life expectancy.

Theres a common misconception that to live forever we need to somehow pause the ageing process. We dont. We just need to increase the rate at which our lifespans are lengthening. Human lifespan has been lengthening at a constant rate of about two years per decade for the last 200 years. If we can speed that up past the rate at which we age then we hit what futurist Aubrey de Grey calls longevity escape velocity the point we become immortal.

Theres a common misconception that to live forever we need to somehow pause the ageing process. We dont. We just need to increase the rate at which our lifespans are lengthening.

That all sounds rather easy, and of course its not quite that simple. Its all we can do at the moment to keep up with the Moores Law of increasing lifespans. But with a major research effort, coordinated around the world, who knows? Scientific history is filled with fields that ticked along slowly and then suddenly, massively, accelerated. Computer science is one. Genetics is another recent example.

To understand what we need to do to hit longevity escape velocity, its worth looking at how life expectancy has increased in recent history. The late statistician Hans Rosling made a powerful case that average lifespans rise alongside per capita income. Take a couple of minutes to watch this video and youll be convinced:

Reducing the gap between the global rich and poor, therefore, is probably the fastest way to boost the world average life expectancy figure, but its limited. And it wont do much for people in rich countries.

To boost the lifespans of the people living in countries that are already pretty wealthy, we need to look closer at the countries that are forecast to have the highest life expectancies in the coming years. A study published earlier this year in the Lancet shows what life expectancy might look like in 2030 in 35 industrialised countries, using an amalgamation of 21 different forecasting models.

South Korea tops the chart with women living on average beyond 90, while France, Japan, Switzerland and Australia are not far behind. Most of the countries at the top of the chart have high-quality healthcare provision, low infant deaths, and low smoking and road traffic injury rates. Fewer people are overweight or obese. The US, meanwhile, is projected to see only a modest rise due to a lack of healthcare access, and high rates of obesity, child mortality and homicides.

The study results are interesting, not only because theyre the best possible guess at our future but because they clearly show how social policies make a massive difference to how long people live. There are unknowns, of course no-one could have predicted the 80s AIDS epidemic, for example, and no doubt further pandemics lurk in humanitys future. But ban smoking, fight obesity, and introduce autonomous cars and personalised medicine, and youll see lifespans rise.

The US is projected to see only a modest rise in lifespan due to a lack of healthcare access, and high rates of obesity, child mortality and homicides.

The other interesting thing is that the studys results are a shot across the bows of scientists who claim that there are hard limits to human lifespan.

As recently as the turn of the century, many researchers believed that life expectancy would never surpass 90 years, lead author Majid Ezzati of Imperial College London told the Guardian back in February.

That prediction mirrors another, published in Nature in October 2016, that concluded that the upper limit of human age is stuck at about 115 years.

By analysing global demographic data, we show that improvements in survival with age tend to decline after age 100, and that the age at death of the worlds oldest person has not increased since the 1990s, wrote the authors Xiao Dong, Brandon Milholland & Jan Vijg.

Our results strongly suggest that the maximum lifespan of humans is fixed and subject to natural constraints.

The maximum length of a human lifespan remains up for debate.

Other researchers, however, disagree. Bryan G. Hughes & Siegfried Hekimi wrote in the same journal a few months later that their analysis showed that there are many possible maximum lifespan trajectories.

We just dont know what the age limit might be. In fact, by extending trend lines, we can show that maximum and average lifespans, could continue to increase far into the foreseeable future, Hekimi said.

Three hundred years ago, many people lived only short lives. If we would have told them that one day most humans might live up to 100, they would have said we were crazy.

Thats all big-picture stuff, so lets dive down to a more personal level. Assuming that you cant change your genetics or your life up until the point that youre currently at, what can you personally do to live longer?

Heres the list: Dont smoke. Exercise your body and mind on a daily basis. Eat foods rich in whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and unsaturated fat. Dont drink too much alcohol. Get your blood pressure checked. Chop out sources of stress and anxiety in your life. Travel by train. Stay in school. Think positive. Cultivate a strong social group. Dont sit for long periods of time. Make sure you get enough calcium and vitamin D. Keep your weight at a healthy level. And dont go to hospital if you can help it hospitals are dangerous places.

All of those things have been correlated with increased lifespan in scientific studies. And theyre all pretty easy and cheap to do. If you want to maximise your longevity, then thats your to-do list. But there are also strategies that have a little less scientific merit. The ones that people with too much money pursue when they realise they havent been following any of the above for most of their life.

Inside the Cryonics Institute.

Cryonics is probably the most popular. First proposed in the 1960s by US academic Robert Ettinger in his book The Prospect of Immortality, it involves freezing the body as soon as possible after death in a tube kept at -196C, along with detailed notes of what they died of. The idea is that when medicine has invented a cure for that ailment, the corpse can be thawed and reanimated.

Calling someone dead is merely medicines way of excusing itself from resuscitation problems it cannot fix today, reads the website of top cryogenics firm Alcor.

The problem is the brain. First, its so dense and well-protected that its extremely difficult for the cryonics chemicals to penetrate it. Its almost impossible that it doesnt get damaged in the freezing process.

The 21,000,000,000 neurons and ~1,000,000,000,000,000 synapses in the human brain means that itll be a while until we have the computational resources to map it.

Secondly, your neurons die quickly even if youre immersed within minutes of death, youre still likely to suffer substantial brain damage. To which cryonics proponents argue: What do I have to lose? If the choice is between probably never waking up again and never waking up again, and its your money to spend, then why not give it a shot?

An alternative to deep freeze is storing your brain in a computer. Not literally a lump of grey matter, but a database detailing in full all of the connections between the neurons in your brain that make you you (known as your connectome). Future doctors could then either rewire a real or artificial brain to match that data, resurrecting you in a new body (or perhaps even as an artificial intelligence).

A close look at a slice of mouse brain. Credit: Robert Cudmore

So far, weve only managed to map the full connectome of one animal the roundworm C. elegans. Despite the worms mere 302 neurons and 7,500 or so synapses, the resulting data is about 12GB in size you can download it in full at the Open Connectome Project, and even install it in a robot, which will then act like a worm.

Unfortunately the human brain is a somewhat larger undertaking. The Human Connectome Project is making a start, and AI is helping, but the 21,000,000,000 neurons and ~1,000,000,000,000,000 synapses in the human brain means that itll be a while until we have the computational resources to get it done. Its worth noting that this isnt an unassailable goal, especially if we can somehow figure out which bits are actually important to our personality and who we are as individuals and which bits are just used to remember the lyrics of Spice Girls songs.

For now, though, my recommendation would be to stick to the list of simple life extension strategies above. Its probable that in time well have new ways of augmenting our bodies that will extend our lifespans (weve already started with cyborg technology just look at pacemakers and artificial hips).

But if you want to be at the front of the waiting list then youll need to arrive at that point with as youthful a body as possible.
