>>7803338 Well we've got the whole telomerase thing down, so extending cell life won't be too terribly hard. You're right about cancer being in the way, but unfortunately I doubt we'll be seeing a "cure" for every cause of cancer anytime soon. So unless you think that there's a way to remove the imperfections in the DNA transcription process, I say we focus less on actually curing cancer and more on creating more efficient and less harmful ways of getting cancer cells out of the body once they develop.
>>7804980 >creating more efficient and less harmful ways of getting cancer cells out of the body once they develop. What the fuck do you think people are talking about when they talk about "curing" cancer?

>>7807704 I'd say some of his work has some good insights. Like changing some your lifestyle at a young age will help (eating better, exercises etc.) One of the more interesting theories that I want to do with my offspring, Is provide them with the perfect balance for what a body needs to function properly (of course it won't be perfect) but if we tackle some of the beggining outliers that cause cancers and "old age" we could actually see some people who could live past 150. However this doesn't account for the random mutations that could occur. I admire aburey for attempting to tackle an almost unrealistic problem that can be solved in our lifetime.
