I'd also like to add that we have also survived millions of years without vaccines.

IMHO there was something called survival of the fittest. I know that it is hard to understand in today's world, where in many areas people can live into their 80's. Our bodies were not dependent on drugs, and if needed there was trail and error in learning about herbal medicines.
Nowadays there is more of a chance of a mass pandemic due to us not having a "survival of the fittest" immunity. Our bodies can no longer take bacteria, or things that normally would have either made people more immune or killed people.
What would have made a generation stronger, is now open to undiscovered diseases that could kill most of the planet. Somethings as simple as antibiotics is now becoming unusable.
BTW, something that is not talked about, is that we have a tendency to forget that very long ago, people would die from something that their bodies could not handle, but now people can "live" with a disease that cannot be cured, by prolonging their demise with drugs that only make pharmaceutical companies richer.

OP is founded on the idea that "the beach is under the pavement"....a classic fallacy.
with regard to humanity remaining subject to "survival of the fittest", it will be important to recognize that many (if not most or all) of the technologies listed in this thread are moving us in a direction away from Darwinism.
it is my belief that the divergence from Darwinism will ultimately result in a TRANSHUMAN organism....the penultimate goal (telepathy) of the universe itself.
but the beach is most decidedly NOT under the pavement.
