What I would wonder is how the mind would handle it? I think it would be a serious mental strain to be honest. People may end up going a bit crazy from such a long life.
With the huge strides lately in gene therapy and reverse aging techniques we may be faced with a dilemma.
Of course even now we are over populated.
But if the methods become available to extent the human life span a hundred or even thousand years? Then what?
Until we find a method to spread into the solar system how can he keep up the current birth rates AND increase life expectancy.
So we may have to face a choice. Forced sterilization in exchange for living many times past the 70 or 80 years we normally would or scrapping the current research and banning further developments in life extension.
We cant have both as it just unsustainable pure and simple.
So what would you all prefer?

I prefer people who shout: "overpopulation" learn how many percent of our Earth is actually inhabited...
we can start from there.
