      Looking at this... You explained cancer as "I don't want to die" cells that keep on splitting. Wouldn't it be ironic then to cure aging with cancer? Know what I mean?

    The reason why we have so many health problems at old age is because we eat unhealthy and live unhealthy lifestyles in our society. Look at Japan, where there are cities with many people over 100 and places with more elderly than babies

                                                  It means that the very small amount of cells that die wont make a difference

                                                                I have read that increasing NAD+ increases the functioning of all cells. Unfortunately this may cause senescent cells to excrete more cancer causing toxins and make more cells senescent also. So I suspect killing those off first is key. Then NAD+, then adding stem cells.
