The Quest for Immortality - One Scientist's Views

Want To Live 500 Years or More?

Dr. Aubrey de Grey says it is possible.

From a recent news story on CBS News:

While most scientists talk about increasing longevity by a few years, de Grey says he is talking about the "indefinite extension of longevity."

"Average life spans would be in the region of 1,000 years," he says. "Seriously."

De Grey believes he has unlocked the mysteries of immortality.

"The aging process is really a buildup of side effects of being alive in the first place," he says.

De Grey has identified the biological processes he thinks are responsible for aging, including the mutations that cause cancer and the gradual buildup of useless, toxic junk.

Dr. De Grey has become a leading scientist on the scientific quest for immortality. He is discovering answers, using science, to unlock the secrets of immortality and how immortals could exist today. Dr. De Grey has published a book on his findings titled "Ending Aging: The Rejuvenation Breakthroughs That Could Reverse Human Aging in Our Lifetime".

I intend to keep posting Dr. Grey's findings as I uncover them, from time to time.
