    I am a long time devoted listener, but was disappointed by the show of 2/23/08 covering Dr Liponis’ book dealing with Ultra Aging. After providing the first 6 steps, which were largely unproven, general heath tips, you left only 40 seconds to cover the 7th step which was the only one of a scientifically based, technical nature. You mentioned 1 or 2 supplements then said “buy the book”. It had the feel of a cheap infomercial and was not your finest hour.
