Fight nature and create craziest sicknesses. You can't cure hiv can't really cure cancer, can't care ALS. Old fags wanna be young. Even if possible you will serve the 1% not the 99 %. 99% people fighting to bring food to the table everyday not trying to become young. Fool people again again and again. Making millions from peoples hope. Fuck you all.

And how do you plan to feed the massive overpopulation of the planet? Stop the young from breeding like rabbits.

To stop aging and death, you have to remove sin. This is what Jesus came to do for his people. The only way to live forever is by faith in Him. This is another example of rebellious man trying to save himself because he hates God. Impossible foolishness. Gen 2:16  And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:  Gen 2:17  But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

what an narcissistic, stupid and shallow bimbo. She will never understand life and reinforces the always young movements, that have a tendency to devalorize people older then 40. I wonder what the Enzyme she shot herself will cause in terms of other mutations in her bod as she ages. There must be a selective reason in evolution that made us not living forever, some ecologic advantage, otherwise death would not exist.

we might , if we really succeed finally get us extinct. How will the world wupport all those people if nobod dies anymore or lives so much longer. Would these people not procreate or colonize Mars,or the most probale situation, we all kill each other for space, water and food.

But if it does become available, then people who take treatment, should not be able to breed, you either have children and die at 80 or you don't have children and get to live on....too many people on this planet

Why many people are obsessed with staying alive is a mystery, or a disease that needs to be cured. Living is a sin, and death is the only salvation.

Delayed?..yes, but at what cost. Stopped...no. Reversed?...now you're pushing your luck. So many variables with the reversed theory, it's borderline worse than just accepting the inevitable. You don't have to like death to accept it, just know it will happen, any time, any circumstance...but why live to die, when you can be dying to live. Make the most of here and now, can't change the past, future is not written, but today...you can change that, you can be happy, or not, your choice.

Oh no
30 minute video and barely any talk of ethics and about testing. Overpopulation is a major issue Class differences are already terrible Global warming is destroying the planet and the people most responsible are going to be the ones to have access to these cures (are we even worthy?) I wish I didn't have to lose any people to aging or sickness but I wouldn't like to live in a world where time is our new currency (watch the movie) or a place where the poor get old while the rich live for centuries. BBC made a disappointing attempt to talk about a major issue presenting it as a sci-fi venture, a dream and not a reall possible future issue with its major positives but also potentially catastrophic negatives.

For what? So that people can act like chimps for a longer time? Childless fools using sexual market value of appearance for pleasure have no purpose in the world beyond that of a chimp, and there is no reason to give them a longer life.

Look into all prospectives. Karma, Healthy Lifestyles (Food + Water + Vitamins + Exercise), Place u live in (mountain areas with lots of good oxygen), I will be interested in Karma because by doing some activities in prelonging others life or savings lifes or sustaining life, it can built up our life span store house (accumulation of purity) into our genes of longevity. I know of one elderly eat only half in his every meals a day and he is now 90+ over & healthy and one old lady whose job is helping pregnant woman give birth (receive life) to countless babies. She also is very old and remain healthy. I have seen a monk who lool very young whose he believe that releasing animals that are being slaugther for food can reverse old age increase lifespan and beat sickness. I m just an observer pls hv no negative comment.

place to start:  1. Diet & 2.Excercise - if you want to do these two peoperly , that should keep you occupied for at least 1-2 years of gathering the knowledge and implementing it. Once these two are a natural part of your daily routine I recommend you have a look at  nmr3 - health foods and supplements (that in it self should take you about 1-2 years of gathering the knowledge and implementing it into your lifestyle and routines) nm 4. experimental therapies = hormone optimisation, peptides, stem cells (during/after 40s) nmr 5. corrective/ aesthetic surgeries to keep a youthful appearance (believe me it's not a big fuss and it does make a big difference to you and the people around you!) nmr 6. we'll have to wait and see what is the next big breakthrough going to be (most likely more sophisticated therapies using own stem cells and DNA modification)

This may well work just like many other drugs that have been developed that work to fight illnesses . There is one big roadblock to this and that is the pharmaceutical industry in the USA. They dont want cures they want costumers . You find the cure for cancer or find the cure for the common cold and let it be known and they will kill you and destroy your work. if they cant do that they will have congress make it illegal

Jump on internet, see something vaguely interesting, try dangerous therapies, then make totally unfounded wild conclusions about it whilst having no medical knowledge at all. Yep its 2019.
Во Имя БОГА. Хвала БОГУ, Справедливому. БОГ одинешенек, не ровняйте ЕМУ никого. БОГ сотворил Землю, Небеса и существование. Вы ли способны что или сотворить, либо владеете ключами от богатств БОГА. Бойтесь БОГА, и Ада. День расплаты наступит, и огнь возмездия в которую не верили свергнет горы. БОГ Велик. Наступит денек, и зарыдают будто Тереза Мэй все кровососущие вельможи. Беззаконные правительства Земли падут. Но будете вытерпеть либо будете лить слезы, вам уже никто не поможет. Тереза Мэй не взяла обязаность за грехи народа, этак уйдут и другие, лишив всех счастья. Бойтесь БОГА и повинуйтесь Мне Пророку. Быть может и вы добьетесь прощения. Пророк Камил.

I would not want to live far beyond my contemporaries - friends & relatives. At 66, I sometimes find myself with memories of events where ALL of those present then are now gone. There's no one to talk to who can relate if I want to rehash something funny that happened.

It is the fear of death and uncertainty after death that worries everyone about aging. However, what if climate change cannot be reversed? What if we are going to face more natural catastrophe and wars? Will we consider longevity a blessing or a challenge which everyone fights for the resources for the many? Will we enjoy the fact that tyrants or monarch to dictate and rule our lives forever if aging is not a concern? I think these issues can be a concern.

Limit your calorie intake by no more than 1/3, eat whole natural not overcooked food, exercise moderately and regularly, sleep 8-10 hours per night and be a good Christian. These are the only things proven to improve health and longevity.
