Ageing has lengthy been thought-about a pure and inevitable a part of life. However with growing developments in biotechnology alongside enhancements in understanding of the cellular processes that cause ageing, a rising subject of analysis is starting to discover how the process might be slowed or stopped altogether.
Whereas consultants debate whether or not or not ageing should be considered a disease, some “longevity fans” are taking issues into their very own fingers as they make plans to establish their own independent state the place they’ll pursue novel therapies and applied sciences with out the restrictions of regulation.
However as with all organic intervention come moral issues about the potential for unintended consequences, who has access to treatments and even what the meaning of life can be with out ageing.
