Scientific integrity and advertising on my sites

It has been pointed out to me that this Blog and my Anti-Aging Firewalls treatise sites are now experiencing enough Internet traffic that I could generate revenue by accepting advertisements such as for proprietary dietary supplements, health cures, anti-aging treatments, anti-wrinkle creams, etc.  While the money would be nice, I will continue to follow a non-commercial model such as that of a professional scientific journal.  There are several reasons for this.  First of all, many advertisements seen on other longevity-related sites make me uncomfortable.  They claim anti-aging results based on science that is shaky at best or nonexistent at worst.  They go against the messages I am trying to deliver.  Services that automatically place advertisements on my site would not give me the option of filtering these out.  Second, I don’t like the idea that any one substance or approach is the central key to longevity today based on the state of science as it is.  And third, I want it to be crystal clear to my readers that my commitment is to the science of longevity and that I will not beholden to any commercial interest.  I think many longevity-related articles appearing on commercial sites are very good.  But I am in this game for the long run and do not want to go in a commercial direction at this point.  So, no advertising.

About Vince Giuliano

Being a follower, connoisseur, and interpreter of longevity research is my latest career. I have been at this part-time for well over a decade, and in 2007 this became my mainline activity. In earlier reincarnations of my career. I was founding dean of a graduate school and a university professor at the State University of New York, a senior consultant working in a variety of fields at Arthur D. Little, Inc., Chief Scientist and C00 of Mirror Systems, a software company, and an international Internet consultant. I got off the ground with one of the earliest PhD's from Harvard in a field later to become known as computer science. Because there was no academic field of computer science at the time, to get through I had to qualify myself in hard sciences, so my studies focused heavily on quantum physics. In various ways I contributed to the Computer Revolution starting in the 1950s and the Internet Revolution starting in the late 1980s. I am now engaged in doing the same for The Longevity Revolution. I have published something like 200 books and papers as well as over 430 substantive.entries in this blog, and have enjoyed various periods of notoriety. If you do a Google search on Vincent E. Giuliano, most if not all of the entries on the first few pages that come up will be ones relating to me. I have a general writings site at and an extensive site of my art at Please note that I have recently changed my mailbox to
