“There will be a revolution in healthcare which will
dramatically extend human life spans.
A combination of gene-based therapies, stem cell
medicine and molecular-nanotechnology will introduce
a new model of medical science which will prevent
disease from occurring and will offer significant life
extension and even physical and mental rejuvenation
(at least for the wealthy people in the developed world).
A child born in 2030 will have a life expectancy of 130
years (at the point of his or her birth) and, long before
they reach old age they will be offered rejuvenation
treatments to maintain their biological age at thirty or
forty years old, no matter what their chronological age.”
