How To Live 1,000 Years: Becoming Immortal In Our Lifetime By Biohacking The Problem Of Human Ageing — Dr Aubrey De Grey | #077
Manage episode 235566142 series 2485681
Dr Aubrey De Grey is one of the world's leading experts in solving the problem of human ageing. A biomedical gerontologist, as well as Chief Science Officer and co-founder of the SENS Research Foundation (https://sens.org/), Dr DeGrey is at the forefront of research in solving diseases and disabilities related to human ageing, that will likely lead to us living much longer and healthier lives in the very near future.
A few years ago, Dr De Grey put forward that the first person to live to be 1,000 years old has already likely been born, and if you're under 40 years of age now and in reasonably good health, you have a good chance of staying young and healthy forever. And while that may sound like science fiction to some, and was controversial in some fields, the fact is that as Dr De Grey will explain in this episode, we don't need to solve ageing tomorrow for this to happen — we only need to extend life by a decade or so with new advances in technology, and keep succeeding in that respect to make this a reality.
In this episode, we discuss what it may take for humanity to live to be 1,000 years old, the kinds of problems we need to solve to achieve this, some of the breakthroughs SENS has been responsible for so far, why we may be only a few years away from some serious breakthroughs in solving the problem of ageing, why extending life won't only be something for the super-rich, some of the consequences of having a population living to be much longer, the things you can do now to extend your life — which may surprise you — and so much more.
I urge all of you to check out the phenomenal work SENS is doing, which you can learn more about via the links below.
