I was talking about extension to *maximum* life span (as were Aubrey and
Michael). Yes, no doubt for some people with health issues, moderate CR
could produce a substantial book in life expectancy. If CR is done too
strongly, I think the results will look worse for humans than for animals,
since it makes you less robust in case of disease, accident, or other
trauma. We don't live in cages in laboratories.
