    Cannot we age with peace and perhaps a bit of class.Age is in the mind.The body does not follow .....why should you push nature to limits.Vitality yes.......but immortality .??????????? A mind that stays young is better than a body pumped up with chemicals tostay young. Like botoxes and lifts and blabla,..........?Cannot anyone in Western world take life gracefully.Put money into finding cures for varios sicknesses.Only the rich will be able to afford .Youngsters will have to pay bill .

    Ageing is an adaptation by natural selection. Any intelligent species which did not age would find the older and more experienced individuals would outcompete their offspring which would therefore die first. In such a scenario few new adaptations would survive beneficial or not. Of course this hardly applies to the human species where genetic defects are sent willy-nilly into the next generation.

    the first step to reverse aging is stop counting birthdays, be playful and eat healthy, I literally check how old i am because i forget, I check my age to tell people cause society needs to know but i could care less how old i am. Aging is your fault! keep eating garbage and ask yourself when was the last time you took a swim? exercise and do joyful things?

    Its just like the song says. Where sunscreen. Too much exposure to the sun unprotected will make you wrinkle faster, and increases chances of cancer. You may not be aging faster but you look it. I have a friend who is 10 years younger but when we go out people think she is 10 years older, always has a deep tan and lots of wrinkles and spends a ton on homeopathic remedies to make her feel and look younger. She's super fit and does yoga everyday, but also loves to sunbake and does UV tanning.

    As long as evil people is running our government we will always die. Each generations will die. It's sad that we get to enjoy our besr years at youth time. And we dont even know if there's life after death. Yeah some people will say yes. Cause they are religious. But what gives us 100%. The only way to know is to experience yourself. We are afraid to queston these things. We live by occupying ourselfs with things thar are only temporary. I know that if the world wanted to. We would be forever young and immortality would be achieved. The gov made up religions so people have a purpose to live for. So that people wouldn't pannick and look for answers. We live and die . Life is Pointless. Maybe someday a person will read this from the future and will see how life was bad. So to all ppl on earth. Just take care of urself because life is too short and unfair.

Do the reasearch without bias and make it available and testable by all avenues for all scientists. Then and only then will I accept its validity.

    I think there are serious consequences to messing with things like aging. It just doesn't feel right.
    I imagine a world where the "rich" people finally have all the vain things they want but then start to die rapidly and the solution becomes neutralizing their crap with a better breed then they will go to people who have isolated themselves for so long to " rebalance" themselves. The only issue is these pure breeds won't know why they are being sought after...

    The only possible way to stop aging is to relatively stop or slow time around your body molecules/cells.
    Aging is a natural process of decay and change. a baby is born. starts growing [which is positive aging because you do not want your child to remain a child like that girl in Interview with a vampire], reach prime health/youth [peak of positive aging], then it is downhill negative aging afterward. middle age and if lucky to be spared by some disease, become elderly. so either stop time or transfer yourself in a virtual body inside a computer that has a zero decay battery or a powerfull solar panel. then you have to make sure the sun doesn't die out. oh dear! but what you gonna do if you lived a thousands of years? while probably very lonely, since 99% rest wont be able to afford Immortrality. write books? watch TV? play Tennis?

So its not the fountain of youth, you wont live forever. And the deseases that are plagueing us is mostly created by humans.

    The truth is that our cells are limited because of time, but you can change it by beliefs like that you are young, but the most affectly is to generate electricity inside your body by hearting yourself by physical beliefs of practice physical exercises, another way is to heart yourself by cooling using cold weather and remember to eat healthy.
