A Special Announcement:  To The Point is co-sponsoring, along with Life Enhancement Magazine, a Life Enhancement Symposium with Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw in Las Vegas, March 22-24.

Shortly after Merv Griffin, the beloved talk show host, passed away in August 2007, I penned a tribute to him in To The Point, How Merv Griffin Enhanced and Extended the Lives of Millions.

I told the story of how I introduced Merv to one of my dearest friends, Durk Pearson.  He was a completely unknown scientist with an IQ so high MIT could not measure it.  It was 1978, and Durk was dedicating his IQ to figuring out how to live healthily for a very, very long time.  What's more, Durk could explain how to do so with incredible clarity.

I convinced Merv to put Durk on his show, and Merv knew he had something amazing within the first few minutes of being on the air. "The fellow is totally unselfconscious on national television," Merv told me. "His ability to articulate his knowledge is as uncanny as the extent of it. He is completely unique. I owe you one, Jack."

Durk went on to appear on Merv's show 32 times. When Merv announced he would send Durk's reading list of scientific journal articles to anyone who requested it, he got over 100,000 letters (this was before email). In his autobiography, Merv, he described Durk as "the most popular talk show guest in the history of television."

No one had ever heard of "antioxidants" and "free radicals" before Durk began his appearances on Merv, or the very concept of "life extension," scientifically slowing down the aging process.  Now millions did, and so did millions more with Durk and his partner Sandy's runaway bestseller in 1982, Life Extension: A Practical Scientific Approach.

I catalyzed this, yes -- and I'm appreciative of the acknowledgement that the Life Extension Foundation gave me, How Jack Wheeler Helped Us Learn of Antioxidants  --  but it was Durk who is responsible for creating the life extension movement, and Merv who made that possible.

35 years have passed since Durk's first appearance on Merv.  The amount of anti-aging research, the number of years added and quality of life improved for so many millions of people stemming from it is incalculable.  But as Durk and his partner in science Sandy Shaw say, there is so much more to come!

The latest advancements in life extension science are astounding - but how do you learn about them?

To enable TTPers and friends of To The Point learn about where Durk & Sandy's latest research is leading, my wife Rebel and I are co-sponsoring, along with my friend Will Block, publisher of Life Enhancement Magazine, a rare public appearance of Durk & Sandy at a Life Enhancement Symposium in Las Vegas next month.  Here is how you can attend.

Durk & Sandy are so engrossed in their research they rarely emerge out of their lab - but we have persuaded them to do so.  On March 22-24 at the Life Enhancement Symposium held at the Platinum Hotel in Vegas, they will talk about:

  • An amazing new antioxidant: powerful, safe, selective, natural, active everywhere (including your brain and mitochondria), and available now.
  • The signal transduction pathway revolution in biology - the radical transformation from traditional empiricism to 21st century mechanistic engineering. New biotech tools have lead to exquisitely precise methods of treating complex diseases by controlling the pathways that cause them and how multi-pronged attacks may be effective against the most deadly of them. It is a conceptually new way of treating complex age related diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and brain degeneration.
  • The eye-opening discovery that animal cells share many of the same signaling and control pathways with plant cells, and how scores of long known plant ingredients are not mere antioxidants - they are new dietary supplement tools for controlling your cells with unprecedented precision and effectiveness. How the presence of epidermal growth factor receptors in your lawn will change your life.
  • New knowledge of the regulation of your body's on-off switches for genetic expression and epigenetic modification (such as methylation) by natural products determines function and can be used to both prevent and target diseases.
  • Why the availability of this new knowledge combined with the latest First Amendment victories following Pearson v. Shalala promises to free us from the stagnation of government regulated "healthcare."

Further, Durk & Sandy will be joined by:

  • Ward Dean, MD, author of Biological Aging Measurements and Smart Drugs & Nutrients
  • Terry Grossman, MD, co-author of Fantastic Voyage and Transcend, (Nine Steps to Living Well Forever) with Ray Kurzweil
  • Richard Kaufman, PhD, author of the Age Reduction System
  • Will Block, publisher of Life Enhancement magazine, and author of The 5-HTP Archives
  • Bill Andrews, PhD, leader of the team at Geron Corporation to first identify human telomerase, and now head of Sierra Sciences, a company that has screened for a natural substance that slows down or stops the telomere aging clock.

From them, you'll find out what you want to know about ...The latest in health supplements
  • Up-to-date knowledge about health and medical research
  • Innovative products related to enhancing life
  • Which products and treatments are conducive to extending life
  • New lifespan-enhancing developments taking place around the planet
  • How medical tourism holds options for optimal health and regenerative medicine
  • What changes in these areas to expect in the coming months and years
  • How to use therapies to regenerate new tissue and leapfrog yourself into the future
  • Taking advantage of new opportunities for vigorous health

You'll get to speak to and hear from some of the greatest experts in the field and advance your personalized Life Enhancement and Life Extension program.  You'll find out how to add years to your life and life to your years.

And you'll be doing this in Vegas, right next to the Strip.

The entire program is only $299, and includes all presentations and meals (except booze).  Here is how to attend. And there's an Early-Bird special: register before February 28th and it's just $269.

The hotel is almost Fully Booked for this weekend.
Please call the Platinum reservation number at 877-211-9211 and mention Life Enhancement.
You may still be able to get a room. It is now ONLY UPON AVAILABILIY BASIS. 

I really encourage you to not miss this extraordinary event. The length and quality of your life may indeed depend on what you learn. The Life Enhancement Symposium , March 22-24, Platinum Hotel, Vegas. If you need more info, call Miko at 202-656-3008. I sure hope you're there.  I want TTPers to be around for a long time to come.
