      I read that positive things happen. Not yet understood completely. Stem cells have less damage because of ageing.
      Perhaps Bram Stoker was not to something?

      It read somewhere that its in process with the FDA,
      but still no cure to tinnitus? XD

      well its still very exciting to see the outcome from this study.

      I'm very excited as well. The area of aging research needs more money. Honestly, most of the chronic diseases people get happen later in life when people are "old." You rarely see young people with diseases like cancer, heart disease, arthritis, etc. Perhaps it's because young people are better able to bounce back from injuries. Of course there will always be things that affect all age groups, like tinnitus, however imagine being able to stay 25 years old for the rest of your life.

      I use 25 because it's young enough physiologically, but also old enough for your brain to mature.

      It does appear that way because modern medicine has increased our life expectancy to the point that we now live, when we used to be dead. The downside is that we now face "old people's ailments", but that's arguably better than being dead.
      When people died at 50, presbycusis wasn't an issue...

      Now the next step is to trick our body into maintaining a young body and not aging. In principle this should be possible.

      I understand this is because of unavoidable damage of DNA or RNA in cells. This is why this trial is interesting. To see if less damaged stem cells can "reset" our clocks.
      I believe that eventually we can become immortal. If science understand how we age and we can regenerate damage that is caused by ageing.
      Just look at what we want to happen with hearing. We want regeneration. Cells that are not there any more, we want regenerated. How far can we go with regeneration? I think very far.
      Later today I will have a look at the Aubrey the Grey clip.:bag:
      I am curious.

      if this technology ever became affordable to the general public (and not just the .01%), we'd be completely boned. We're already running out of clean air / water / etc.

      Upon doing more digging into this trial, there are many concerns. There's NO CONTROL GROUP! Also, you have to pay $8,000 to participate!

      Aubrey de Grey's first goal is to age "better". What use is it getting older if every day is a struggle. I can understand that.
      In the video he also comments about over population concerns.

      So what ?

      Without this technology we are completly dead.

      Worse than overpopulation and being short of ressources is not having this technology.
