Doug Vining Telomerase to reverse aging

Harvard scientists have discovered that by controlling certain genetic processes in mice, they can not only slow down the aging process, but "dramatically" reverse it throughout the body. It's a massive discovery, but it won't be able to be used in humans yet without some pretty scary consequences.

Doug Vining Solving death

Maybe Google can, or at least help delay aging.

Doug Vining Turning back the clock

Would you like to turn back the clock on your life? Perhaps just a little bit?

I don't regret the past, but wouldn't it be nice to just recover some of those lost years, at least physically? Or maybe just press pause for another decade or two, while we get some serious work done, or complete our bucket list before it's too late.

Scientists have discovered that DNA tracks the age of our cells, and maybe we could use this to slow done the ageing process. Perhaps, in the future, we can live 'forever' as this MindBullet suggests!

Doug Vining Long live longevity

The possibility for humans to extend their lives by hundreds of years is becoming less of a fantasy and more like a future reality. According to this article, a new enzyme and a hormone offer the chance of preventing aging and extending life in mammals. Will our scenario published nine years ago become a hot topic in the near future?

The implications of technology like this becoming affordable for the general population raises many questions. If you deny the poor free life-extension hormones, are you guilty of murder? What if you are physically frail but being kept alive by enzymes in the water? Can you demand to die?

Wolfgang Grulke Long live longevity

Surely the 'right to live' must be coupled with the 'right to die'?! Certainly the legal system in many countries is tending towards this belief. By the timeline in this MB (2025) voluntary euthanasia will be commonplace.
