Orlando, FL (PRWEB) April 30, 2009 -- More than 2,600 participants from the medical, scientific, and business arenas convened for the 17th Annual World Congress on Anti-Aging Medicine's Spring 2009 Session. Held April 23-25th in Florida, this event was sponsored The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M; www.worldhealth.net), the academic leader in a worldwide movement in life enhancement and life extension that impacts more than 550,000 physicians and health practitioners in 105+ countries.
In Opening Remarks welcoming the scientific delegates to the academic program, Dr. Ronald Klatz, M.D., D.O., President of the A4M, reported on the publication of a groundbreaking paper in the May/June 2009 issue of Archives of Gerontology and Geriatrics, published by Elsevier. The first time in any peer-reviewed scientific journal that the covert misdeeds and extreme abuse of academic and political power by the gerontological establishment has been exposed, the founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Archives, Prof. Dr. Imre Zs.-Nagy, MD, blows the whistle on fourteen years of censorship and repression of the science of anti-aging medicine, and advanced preventive medicine, by the gerontological establishment.
Quoting Prof. Dr. Zs.-Nagy, who states that: "a complete disregard by certain individuals bearing some of the most prestigious affiliations in the gerontological establishment, for truth, academic integrity, and scientific professionalism … in a wanton effort to sabotage and retard a global movement of clinicians, practicing physicians on the front lines who have embraced that aging is not inevitable, and is indeed, preventable," Dr. Klatz relays that Prof. Dr. Zs.-Nagy concludes that: "there has been little else as dramatic, important, beneficial, and significant as the anti-aging medical movement. … Anti-aging medicine has flourished in its sixteen-year long history, garnering the support of more than 100,000 physicians and scientists worldwide who practice or research life enhancing, life extending interventions."
Robert Goldman, M.D., Ph.D., D.O., FAASP, Chairman of the A4M, observed that: "Because A4M's Congresses are recognized as the world's premier scientific events on topics relating to medical interventions to prevent and treat the diseases and disabilities associated with the biological process of aging, the Spring 2009 Session of the 17th Annual World Congress on Anti-Aging Medicine and Regenerative Biomedical Technologies drew over 2,600 scientific delegates representing more than 25 nations. In 2009, the A4M will train more than 50,000 physicians via more its Global Series of co-sponsored/co-supported physician education programs taking place worldwide."
The 17th Annual World Congress on Anti-Aging Medicine's Spring 2009 Session presented scientific educational programming in some of the most promising arenas of preventive medicine. With presentations sharing the newest breakthroughs in laboratory diagnostics, nutritional and hormone therapies, stem cell technology, and molecular medicine, the event offers a broad range of topics that are specifically relevant to the practice of anti-aging medicine in the clinical office setting. More than 80 world-renowned clinicians and researchers presented the latest data on cutting-edge scientific breakthroughs in human longevity.

The worldwide anti-aging marketplace is estimated at $96.89 Billion in 2008. Growing at a compounded annual rate of 8.78% over the period 2001-2010, the global anti-aging marketplace is projected to reach $291.9 Billion by 2015 [Global Industry Analysts, Inc..
