74-year-old defies time with hormones

Jeffry Life, age 74, uses performance enhancing drugs that are similar to the ones used by athletes like Lance Armstrong. The physical results are easy to see, but he says the rock hard body isn't the only effect. Life claims his mind is sharp and he feels like a man half his age.

"I'm not against aging. I'm against getting old," he tells CNN's Kyung Lah. Life uses testosterone and human growth hormone (HGH) accompanied by a daily fitness regimen and a low-carb diet. The physician considers himself a trailblazer for others who want a better quality of life in old age.

The FDA regulates the use of HGH and has not approved it for anti-aging purposes. Watch Lah's report to see how Life's company, Cenegenics, has found a "natural loophole" to give their patients HGH, and why some critics don't support their use of hormones as a fountain of youth.
