Bioethics; Anti-aging "treatments"
Thing that I don't care about that much:

Thing that worries me:
* An eventual spurious positive result on one of these trials leading to desperate middle- or lower-income people re-mortgaging their houses to pay for 6-figure-level costs of ineffective "life-extensions" on the assumption that they'll live long enough to pay it back
