The First Person to Live to 1000 May Be Alive Today
Immortality could indeed be a possibility!
In a new report out of Australia, researchers are saying its likely that the first person to live to be 1,000 is alive today. So, with some medical, scientific and technological help, we could indeed become immortal and subject to this incredibly attractive idea (for some of us anyway) of immortality.
The Australian report says that a growing number of researchers believe a biological revolution will enable humans to eventually experience everlasting youthfulness or immortality. The article quotes researcher Aubrey de Grey, a Cambridge gerontologist and co-founder or the California-based Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence Research Foundation, who said that while immortality zero risk of death from any cause is not an accurate term for his goals, he is working on one particular cause of death, namely aging, in an effort to undo the damage done by the wear and tear of life, as opposed to stopping the aging process altogether. Success in this type of research can therefore provide us the ability to regenerate our cells and become part of a new species whose genetic make-up is now providing us immortality.
The researcher is developing a therapy to kill cells that have lost the ability to divide, allowing healthy cells to multiply and replenish the tissue.
