Having read the article at hand there are a few things that could be stated:
While living to 150 may seem like a good idea, there are so many different problems that is not mentioned or addressed, it should be. With the aging
of the body, there are changes that occure steadily, from the brain to the bones, and all parts in between. So while it may seem like a good idea,
will it halt the progress of stay bone lose? Will it reverse say bad eye sight, or even prevent the skin from thining out? Then there is one final
problem that is not mentioned and it should be and that is the brain.
Of all of the organs of the body that is the least known it is the brain that should be of the most concern. As a person ages, the rate of dementia
increases, right now it is projected that a silver tsunami is about to hit hard with the numbers of persons affected by diseases like Alzheimers is
going to affect many countries around the world, including the USA, as the baby boomers start to retire and get to that age, and there is not enough
health care professionals around to assist in that.
Do you prolong the life of a person who has either started to develop or may develop that horrible disease, to where they are 90, could live to be 150
and have the mind of a child, unable to function? There are so many things that have not been addressed or considered in this process it may not be
the blessing it is proported to be, but a curse that could come back to affect us all.
