Can modern medicine find a way to delay or even stop the aging process of the human body? So far we’ve made some gains in longevity over the last century to one primary factor — the reduction of infectious diseases.
The past 150 years we’ve doubled our life expectancy
With infectious diseases largely gone in the developed world, we need to turn our attention to the main cause of death. Aging, which is caused by the accumulation of various types of molecular and cellular damage. According to research and theories, molecular and cellular damage can be repaired with new regenerative medicines, including stem cell therapies, gene therapies, drugs and vaccines. As this technology improves we will live longer and if you’re lucky enough you will be young enough that you can reverse the aging live forever.
At a certain point we will hit an inflection point and we can have the potential to live forever
It’s not just about living forever but also about having a healthy life
