      Looking at this... You explained cancer as "I don't want to die" cells that keep on splitting. Wouldn't it be ironic then to cure aging with cancer? Know what I mean?

    I'd like to die of old age in my sleep, ready, without diseases or pain but still look young. I just don't want to live forever, forever living in an imperfect society.

    I 100% think that during my lifetime, and since I’m only a kid, that there will be stuff like immortality will be available, and if they don’t, we don’t die, just our souls go into a different vessel on another planets
    , no death, just a different life

    If you want to help speed this up so that we have a cure for aging sooner, I recommend that everyone donates 1$ daily to SENS research.

    Great vid. However: eat healthy, exercise regularly,band you have gained 30% of your health span. Unfortunately people want to have a pill instead of doing the investment.

    • Jochen Schütz

      This is not about gaining 30%. This is about gaining way longer life spans.

  • Ivan Klochkov

    I believe that secrets of the eternal life or at least significant lifespan extension have been discovered long time ago. Simply they can't be revealed to the public. Nor used for any celebrity person ( we'd already have noticed if someone stopped again). Revealing the information would cause terrestrial overpopulation and a war for the resources.
    However, in further future... if we start colonization of other planets and migration out there becomes a global tendency, then why not? Our descendants will be able to live much longer lives, if not even perpetually.

    Mice share a lot of the same DNA as humans, but the tiny bit that's different is very important. Therefore those trials they did on mice might not work the same on humans. Sorry, science!

  • Dino World
    Dino World 14 days ago

    I personally dont want to live forever but Im afraid of being a failure in life, and 80 years, only 50-60 years of it being the only time I can have a great job, a great marriage and be a good father. Then I have 20 years either pondering about whether I had a good life or not, while I decay slowly. So, I would want to prolong my life, so that I have time, and there is room to mess up sometimes.

    I wish to add, that i read a lot on these trials, and right now the max is 30% extended life span, but also have to add, these mice are regulated to have a healthy diet and movement. AKA : Sports and food are atleast as important as the therapy itself.

    You can slow down aging a lot right now with healthy diet, exercise, intermittent fasting, proper sleep and calorie restriction. You can also just avoid unhealthy lifestyle choices like drinking, smoking, and skin damage from the sun. If you are in your 20s now and practice this lifestyle, then take advantage of stuff like metformin and NMN in the coming decades then you will be well on your way to being extremely healthy even in old age. At that point you will also be able to undergo advanced therapies that will make you look like you're 25 again.
