A new website from the editors of Longevity Medicine Review—http://www.lmreview.com — can provide medical practitioners, clinicians, nutritionists, and anti-aging enthusiasts with concise reviews & analysis of the latest in anti-aging and longevity medicine research.
The website already features more than two dozen thoroughly researched anti-aging and longevity science related articles and interviews, the majority of which were written by managing editor and anti-aging expert Lara Pizzorno, MDiv, MA, LMT.
In addition to its ever growing collection of anti-aging articles, the Longevity Medicine Review website also has a calendar of upcoming anti-aging medical conferences and symposia related to longevity medicine.
The website allows medical professionals and others interested in anti-aging and longevity medicine to comment on the posted anti-aging articles. The website also welcomes the submission of articles, books, and essays that contribute to the growing scientific understanding of anti-aging and longevity medicine.
Longevity Medicine Review publisher, John Morgenthaler, himself a long-time longevity medicine and anti-aging writer and author, says the goal of the http://www.lmreview.com website is to provide a forum for those interested in longevity medicine and anti-aging to come together and understand the affects of aging on the human body, the biological processes that contribute to human aging, and natural solutions to longevity and life extension.
“We are just now beginning to understand the science of anti-aging and longevity medicine, and the potential for disease prevention and human life extension is tremendous,” said Morgenthaler.
The articles on the website are written for medical professionals and clinicians in a technical style and thoroughly referenced. The site also offers links to other anti-aging articles written for a more general audience. Says Morgenthaler, “A lot of what’s new in longevity medicine, particularly in the area of anti-aging herbs and nutrients, can be put into practice right now if you understand what to take and how much of it to take.”
The Longevity Medicine Review website dedicated to anti-aging and longevity medicine is at lmreview.com.
About Longevity Medicine Review’s Publisher John Morgenthaler, Publisher:
John Morgenthaler has been active in the field of anti-aging and longevity medicine since 1986 when he launched a business that assisted AIDS groups in sourcing hard-to-get, experimental treatments. One of those treatments was DHEA, which did not become an over-the-counter nutritional supplement until 1995.
In 1990, John teamed up with Ward Dean, M.D. to create the book Smart Drugs & Nutrients, which became an international bestseller. The book shocked and offended people on both sides of the "drugs versus nutrients" divide because it did not take sides. The book discussed many pharmacological tools that are effective and particularly safe, and discussed many beneficial nutrients that have solid science behind them. The tension between these two camps was so strong that health food stores initially refused to carry the book.
The controversy put John in the limelight. He appeared on the Today Show, Larry King Live, 20/20, and Phil Donahue, and was interviewed in Time, Newsweek, Playboy, New York Times, Rolling Stone, Details, and Cosmopolitan.
It was this book that launched Smart Publications, John’s publishing company, which to this day remains neutral and unbiased in the “drugs versus nutrients” debate.
Over the next few years John co-authored several other books including Smart Drugs II, Stop the FDA, Better Sex Through Chemistry, and Natural Hormone Replacement for Women over 45 with Jonathan V. Wright, M.D. He has also published articles in respected alternative medicine journals such as the Townsend Letter.
Today, John and his team of editors and researchers at Longevity Medicine Review have dedicated themselves to reviewing, interpreting, publishing, and disseminating the latest discoveries and breakthroughs in anti-aging and longevity medicine. He also continues to publish cutting-edge nutrition and medical science books and periodicals. The most recent book from John’s publishing company, Smart Publications, is Stay Young & Sexy with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement — The Science Explained by Dr. Jonathan V. Wright M.D. and Lane Lenard, PhD.
