What makes you think they haven't already got a similar more advanced drug?
What makes you think that the 'elite' you have been shown is actually the puppeteers?
Although it might seem like science fiction, researchers have already proven that the diabetes drug metformin extends the life of animals, and the Food and Drug Administration in the US has now given the go-ahead for a trial to see if the same effects can be replicated in humans.

The hidden elite and corrupt world leaders will probably steal this drug once they make them announce it doesn't work, so they can have it for themselves and let us all die and they live to 200.
If they give this out to us then believe me they have a drug to live to 500 for the elite
Why? Is that a better anti-aging drug?
Pollak has demonstrated what he and others see as the key effect, which may trigger the other benefits of the drug: It inhibits oxygen consumption in mitochondria, in effect turning down the cell’s metabolic thermostat. “When a furnace is burning,” he says, “it’s heating up and it’s cracking and it begins to degrade. When you keep your house at a lower temperature, your furnace is going to last longer.”
Rapamycin was the most impressive. “It has advanced to the point in which we not only know it extends life span,” Sierra says, “but more importantly, it extends health span.”
Metformin, the drug the group ultimately decided to take to FDA, was not among the compounds that starred in the animal trials. But it has both a promising history and a long, reassuring track record.
His colleagues agreed, sometimes reluctantly. “Rapamycin would have been my first choice, because the animal results have been so spectacular,” Austad says. “But Nir said, ‘We can’t afford in this first trial to kill anybody.’ And I thought, ‘Strategically, he’s right.’”

According to the Bible, didn't people live (then) for 6 to 700 years?
Am I wrong?
