Biomedical Gerontologist and Chief Scientist of Strategies for the Engineered Negligible Senescence Foundation said that scientists have nearly all of the necessary tools to cure aging, Reuters reported July 4.
DreGrey said that the first person who will live to be 150 has already been born and that the first person who will live to be 1,000 years old will be born within the next 20 years.
DeGrey also said that life extension will be the enabled by lightning-speed advances in gene therapy, stem cell therapy, and immune stimulation, adding that aging is a product of molecular and cellular damage.
The anti-aging industry, dressed in black and holding a black cane, is expected to reach $291.9 Billion by 2015. The industry has done nothing to stall Old Age but has increased the rate of body image disorders such as anorexia and Body Dysmorphic Disorder.
Body Dysmorphic Disorder, a debilitating psychological disorder which perpetuates delusional obsessions and compulsions aimed at neutralizing imagined ugliness is present in one percent of the population. The disorder is maintained by the belief that looks are the most important aspect of a person and remits when this belief is obliterated, usually through cognitive-behavioral therapy.
Promising striking improvements in patient health, energy level and a sense of well-being, the industry refuses to go back to the hell that it came from.
