Nearly all scientists who study the biology of aging agree that we will someday be able to substantially slow down the aging process.
Today’s guest is perhaps the most bullish of all such researchers and believes that the key biomedical technology required to eliminate aging-derived debilitation and death – is now within reach. In his book, he and his research assistant Michael Rae describe the details of this biotechnology.
They explain that the aging of the human body, just like the aging of man-made machines, results from an accumulation of various types of damage. As with man-made machines, this damage can periodically be repaired, leading to the indefinite extension of the machine’s fully functional lifetime, just as is routinely done with classic cars.
We already know what types of damage accumulate in the human body, and we are moving rapidly toward the comprehensive development of technologies to remove that damage. By demystifying aging and its postponement for the nonspecialist reader, our guest systematically dismantles the fatalist presumption that aging will forever defeat the efforts of medical science.
We welcome the author of Ending Aging: The Rejuvenation Breakthroughs That Could Reverse Human Aging in Our Lifetime Dr Aubrey de Grey.
