Longevity happiness elixir
Immunizing against MAO-B could cause greater cheerfulness and immunize against depression, it could cause greater longevity as well.
Dperenyl, also known as the Esam patch, is an
antidepressant. It inhibits monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B).
Soaking up all the MAO-B another way could also be
anantidepressant. That suggests that immunizing against
MAO-B could cause greater cheerfulness and immunize
causes four species of mammals to live 9-30%
longer! There is a possibility that immunizing against
monoamine oxidase B causes greater longevity as well.
If everything went right with an MAO-B immunization
one oral dose, once, could cause greater happiness and
greater longevity for a lifetime..

||//immunizing against MAO-B// Well, you're going to have a
problem immunising against a normal human protein. Also, if
you managed it you'd (a) have a permanent autoimmune
disease and (b) would have a permanent MOA-B deficiency. If
you decided that it wasn't right for you, you'd basically be

ability to bone.
||I never bone but it's tempting in this case. One thing
this does make me wonder about, though, is whether
depression has a biological function.
||Here is what Wikipedia says:
||"people lacking the gene for MAO-B display no abnormalities except elevated phenethylamine levels in urine, raising the question of whether MAO-B is actually a necessary enzyme."
||Like others, I tend to doubt that the neurologic system is producing a completely uneccessary enzyme.
||Addendum: before attempting this, perhaps someone should survey whether people who lack the gene for MAO-B are much happier than the general population, live much longer, feel drained of phenethylamine, etc.
||[4and20] great idea! There are 2 records at pubmed about
MAO A and B gene deletion. It is really bad for people.
||There remains optimism though, I would look to see if
different SNPs (gene variants) had any benefit.
||I have heard of an idea that depression may in some cases
be adaptive, making it easier for the person to think about
what's causing problems in their life. I can't easily find any
mention of it in Wikipedia, though.
