Making Sense of SENS – Ending Aging & Starting Rejuvenation

One of the 6 Steps in the R.E.C.I.P.E. formula I discuss in my Retirement Singularity: End of Retirement FREE Report (coming out very soon) is the idea that we should have money set aside to pay for new medical treatments that are not available in our country and/or covered under medical plans (assuming we have a medical plan!).
One current example of this is stem cell therapy.
