That’s a question that was more science fiction than reality, but that’s no longer the case. Obviously, the technology that will allow humans to live forever* is still yet to be realized, but technologies of various types in development will allow people to live longer and healthier lives are here, or just around the corner.
A recent conference called RAAD Fest brought together some top scientists and thinkers on the topic of aging and dying (or not dying!) to discuss the wide range of technologies and other topic surrounding extending human life. Below is a talk by Bill Faloon of the Life Extension Foundation (LEF). LEF is a company I have done some consulting work for, use their products, and occasionally write for their magazine. As a rule, LEF is my go to company for supplements among a small handful of companies I use and or recommend. I found Bill’s talk very interesting, so I decided to share it with BZ members!
* = Obviously “forever” does not exist technically. By that we mean extended periods of time that greatly exceed current life spans and could be in the thousands of years.
