Subject: Sears book

As I recall, not long ago Doug Skrecky posted a negative review of Barry 
Sears' book, THE ANTI-AGING ZONE. Now the current issue of LIFE EXTENSION, 
magazine of the Life Extension Foundation, led by Saul Kent and Bill Faloon, 
has a long, positive review. 

This highlights a chronic problem--how to evaluate alleged life extenders, or 
how to evaluate the evaluators. I don't know the credentials or background of 
Ivy Greenwell, the reviewer for LIFE EXTENSION, or how her talents and 
efforts compare with Doug's. But all of the people mentioned here are 
apparently serious students of the field. As I recall, Doug came close to 
calling Sears a charlatan; I think he did call him dishonest. Could we have 
some fresh comments from Doug and someone at the LEF?
