Aging is just another illness

we'll have none of this

We can live forever, at least several hundred years, possibly a millennium. And our first 150 year old has already been born.

This is according to very optimistic researcher, Aubrey de Grey a biomedical gerontologist and chief scientist of SENS (Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence) which is dedicated to longevity research. He believes that doctors already have all the tools to cure aging, they just need to be fine tuned and applied better.

“I'd say we have a 50/50 chance of bringing aging under what I’d call a decisive level of medical control within the next 25 years or so,” de Grey said. “And what I mean be decisive is the same sort of medical control that we have over most infectious diseases today.”

He envisions a world where people go to their doctors for regular “maintenance” which might include gene therapies, stem cell therapies, immune stimulation and a range of other medical treatments to keep their bodies safe from the ravages of aging. Aging after all is simply a lifelong accumulation of various types of molecular and cellular damage throughout the body.

“The idea is to engage in what you might call preventative geriatrics, where you go in to periodically repair that molecular and cellular damage before it gets to the level of abundance that is pathogenic,” he concluded.
