Top biologist Andrew Steele said that the scientific world is already very close to creating a drug that can double the lifespan of a person. This event will take place in the next decade.
According to British scientist, in the near future, slowing down the aging process will become a reality for humanity. The scientist stressed: this does not mean that people of old age will return to a youthful state of the body.
Steele believes scientists will create a drug that will prevent the health problems associated with age-related changes in the body. For example, arthritis, joint pain and brittle bones will go away.
Soon, researchers will be able to find the root causes of diseases and create effective medicines. This will significantly slow down the aging process, and senile ailments will manifest themselves only in the distant future.
Now scientists are testing innovative developments that can prolong human life. Andrew Steele believes it will be very unusual at first to meet an elderly person who does not complain of arthritis, cardiovascular disease, or cancer.
At the same time, the biologist believes that 150-year-old retirees will not be like 20-year-old boys and girls. There will certainly be differences in appearance.
