NY Times Incorrectly Slams Anti-Aging Experts

A recent New York Times article, titled Aging: Disease or Business Opportunity?, that slams two anti-aging preventative medicine doctors and their work in the anti-aging field is a prime example of why it’s so important to question everything and anything you read.

The article spins a biased story that attacks the entire anti-aging field -- which is usually one based on fine-tuning the diet, optimizing exercise and using targeted supplements -- and makes it seem like a dangerous, money-hungry venture.

In reality, as this article from Mylonglife.com points out, the NY Times piece is littered with important omissions and biased statements that end up overwhelmingly supporting the conventional medical model and casting doubt on everything prevention-based.

Of course, many, if not all, major media outlets, including Fox News and Reuters, are often heavily biased.

Clearly, it is up to you to do your homework and dig beneath the surface to uncover what’s really the truth -- something I strive to do on a daily basis with this blog and the open discussions that follow.
