  • I Read that Dr. Ames said coffee is the 2nd leading cause of cancer….any thoughts on that? I’m a coffee addict and now feel I should stop. Would love to hear Kiefer or a podcast talk about Caffeine, skin health (like whether all that hype about sun exposure and the raw deal on lotions anti aging etc)

    Just a fan leaving feedback!

  • Dr. Ames is advocating an approach that Life Extension ( has and continues to pioneer. I am glad this message is spreading.

    I did chuckle to myself when I heard the doctor say, “eat a balanced diet, eat your veggies, but I am developing a formula (in case you don’t)”. I am not criticizing, I supplement. In today’s fast-paced world(where we really do not eat as we should) it does come down to supplementation. I guess I’ll keep chuckling when my doctor continues to tell me I am making expensive urine.
