Aging is slowing down every day, and technology helps
This is a fact. Human life is lasting longer, and if some of the researchers’ expectations are met, a qualitative leap could be made in the next 20 to 40 years.
I’m sure someone could say: “! doubt if we’ll be here to see it “
But it’s not so long if we see it with the proper perspective.
Currently there are many researchers working on new drugs that are capable of delaying normal diseases of old age, such as osteoarthritis, dementia, cancer, etc …
In general, they are looking for drugs that counteract the aging of human cells and allow us to stay “young” for longer.
Some intelectuals have written books announcing immortality. I think it is a way of exaggerating to sell more books, but they take on the meaning of what is behind all this research. Extend life without limitations.
I have entered the website of the company Unity Biotechnology (a start-up from San Francisco, USA) that works on therapies to combat senescent cells and delay aging.
It is not the only one, there are many others doing similar jobs. And human trials are underway with apparently promising results.
Of course, in my opinion, what’s important in life is not to live long, but to do so with a certain quality. If these therapies lead to delaying old age and its physical limitations, that’s fine.
What happens is that these new medicines are going to be a little late for me and I will not be able to take advantage of these new potions. But I’m not complaining at all.
