don’t get me wrong. i’m a total fan of rapamycin.
especially once you hit 50, it seems like rapamycin does little other than help you out a great deal. And the risks are worth it.
and I know that there’s a downside of less resistance to bacterial infections. that’s a pretty widely known caution to rapamycin.
But I’ve rarely heard of people disliking rapamycin. I mean Dr. Saladino here is no god, but I’ve found him to be a pretty smart guy when it comes to understanding good nutrition. I was kinda surprised on his take on rapamycin. Start with the time spot in the link. Do mTOR, IGF 1 and dairy accelerate aging? - YouTube
I know that the whole reason we have rapamycin is organ transplant patients and taking it every day pretty much completely takes out your immune system (which is a pretty scary thought - but I’m sure it beats death from an organ transplant).
I’m kinda wondering how worried I should be about tb and pulmonary infections. I also do know that rapamycin has not been well studied in the general population and there are big huge risks just jumping in and trying it.
It’s just kind of interesting in the end I guess.
I’m definitely still going to take it. But probably every 2 weeks. And with breaks of a month every now and then I’m thinking.
My grandpa lived past 90, but it was a lung infection of some sort (unknown therefore untreatable) that brought him to the end. He was my favorite guy.
I’m not so sure about rapa every single week anymore.
I’m sure others are taking it less than weekly. Since this whole thing is a big gray area, and since this is a message forum, I’m interested in other people’s thoughts and guesses
