Many people want to live longer - I don't know what you mean about people going crazy. If someone were very wealthy, I doubt they'd be in a hurry to
die anytime soon!
The age and diet related problems would still be there even if you lived longer. Telomeres do not keep you from getting dementia or genetically
caused imbalances of brain chemicals. They also do not make you smarter, although wisdom comes with age I do know many older people that never wised
up. The longer you live, the more chance of having a major accident that kills or cripples you.
If you are healthy and can get around it is nice to live longer. Being crippled or unhealthy makes it more of a curse. Another thing is that your
good friends die and after a while it isn't fun to make new friends knowing they will die on you. Could get very tiring watching the same stupid
mistakes being made over and over again in the USA also. Just think of the people who experienced the great depression having to watch it again. Now
if you lived for eight hundred years, how many times would you witness the same stupid things happening with a different twist....and nobody would
listen when you try to tell them.
