Researchers are saying that the first drugs that can slow the ageing process are likely to be available within five to ten years. They believe this could result in people eventually living to 150 or more.
Peter Smith, dean of medicine at the University of NSW, said a girl born today in Australia could reasonably expect to live to 100 already, due to advances in medicine, lifestyle and public health. In addition, new drugs to help the body repair itself were in the early stages of development, along with new stem cell therapies.
”I think there is real hope we can extend human life by some decades further,” Professor Smith said. – Sydney Morning Herald
So, what do you think? If you could stay reasonably healthy, would you want to live for 150 years?
I’m hoping I’ve still got a good many years ahead of me but I’m not sure about hanging around for 150 years. What about you?
