Nanotech Primes The Fountain Of Youth

Abstract:
Josh Wolfe: A recent report from the U.S. Census Bureau noted that the number of people age 65 and over is expected to double within the next 25 years. That's one out of every five Americans, or about 72 million people. While it is impossible to stop aging, the demand for anything that disguises aging or prolongs life is likely to get stronger. This is good news for nanotech investors.

In the past decade alone, nanotechnology has enhanced the application and efficacy of cosmetic products designed to conceal and even erase the marks of aging. But the ability to manipulate and manufacture nanoscopic materials has begun to blur other lines, namely those dividing cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
