Can Scientists End Aging by 2029?

Via H+ magazine:

“For the past 9 years, many of the world’s leading researchers have been quietly collaborating on a scientific roadmap to reverse — yes, completely reverse — the human aging process,” explains David A. Kekich. He’s the founder of new California biotech project that hopes to end the 100,000 lives lost to aging every day — and within 20 years! And according to this article, “It’s serious enough that members of the Obama Administration consider it to be one of the major global destabilizing forces of the next 25 years.”

Many of the project’s researchers believe we’re approaching “longevity escape velocity” — where medical advances outpace aging itself, “potentially making death-by-aging a choice rather than a date with destiny.” Two University of California researchers shared their findings at a kick-off event in November, where the group’s colloboration was disclosed to the public.”

Can you stay healthy enough to make it to 2029? Then you may be able to live forever …

    I have a few questions about this sort of advancement.

    Does that mean life imprisonment could mean a very, very long time?

    What about “til death do us part?” Hmm.. I wonder if they can stop the heart for a a few seconds and then bring you back. That would be “death,” right?

      If people have a chance to live longer, there will be very little motivation for committing crime & thus punishment.

  2. I love Word Eater's comment below – on pondering the implication here for prison life sentence terms.
