Someday, aging will be defeated

Some day we will defeat aging.  Right now our knowledge of what causes aging and the approach needed to successful stop aging have not been discovered.  But over the last decade we have uncovered a number of ways to slow aging, so I think it reasonable to say that we have started down the road to completely defeat aging.

At this point that is a very bold statement, for our initial steps have a very long way to go before we will see much more modest success.  As a scientist I cringe…but as a person, I applaud our beginnings down this long path.

Can we defeat aging?  Yes.  Can we do things today to help extend our lifespan?  Certainly.  This blog is partly about the techniques that are already here to extend lifespan, and partly about the things that may be coming.
