Lasker:

Yes, but we haven't resupplied ourselves with anything that we were losing as we went on, and we have the longest life span that we've ever had this year in the United States, because we prevented death from stroke and from heart attacks. But that isn't really interfering with the deficiency, with other deficiencies, in our body that we're not supplying. They may be right, but I think it's a good idea to try a variety of things to resupply the body with what it uses up as it goes on, don't you? Why not?

Q:

Lasker:

I'm interested in seeing what comes of that. They've got me interested in anti-aging, because. I was never particularly interested. I was glad if they did something, but I never really was going to do much about it. Well, I'm doing about Fokers and this Co-enzyme Q, and I'm going to do a little more about it.

Q:

And you said last time that Cranston was so dedicated to the task.

Lasker:

He is. He's determined to live to a hundred. He probably will.

Q:

Does he plan to be in politics all that time?
