The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Legends tell of people who lived a long time, like Methuselah. Some are just lucky (Lazarus Long), some have it thrust upon them (Lestat), some just naturally come by it (cats and bristlecone pines), and some rightfully earn their immortality (Shakespeare). Is life extension possible via diets or genetic manipulation, and will there be side effects? Give us your speculative take (SF/F/H) on longevity and how it is achieved.
