Yahoo - "If Aubrey de Grey's predictions are right, the first person who will live to see their 150th birthday has already been born. And the first person to live for 1,000 years could be less than 20 years younger."

This isnt really tech related...

How? You need to broaden your definition of Technology.

Technology is the making, usage and knowledge of tools, "techniques", crafts, systems or methods of organization in order to "solve a problem" or serve some purpose. This is exactly that, tech is not just limited to gadgets.

This is tech related, no clue what you think of as tech.

This is medical technology and it's science, both things that are good for TechSpy in my book.

Did you know the wheel is tech. The amish use tech, very low tech.

Isn't the world already overpopulated? Could you imagine a lady 123yrs old flying past you at a stop sign.........

That's when you apply laws for population control. And I doubt this would be cheap, but who knows.

You still have people dying from accidents murders ect and it will not be cheap and won't be worked out for many yrs. It's not overpopulation that should be a concern it's the food supply status thats affected by the population that is the problem.

I can't see people wanting to live forever at least not without their loved ones, i think everyone on this website will be a pile of bones before this is a serious issue.

There's also a problem of misinformation which varily includes purposely reducing certain resources and putting "class" like restrictions on their distribution to keep this idea going that there isn't enough of 'said thing' to go around.

Well by what account? The edible plant life on this planet far out number, far and wide the human population but still there are a large number of people in the world starving.

Not because there is no food to go around, but because in their own country certain resources are kept from them.

Think of it as a board game, monopoly or something. If you don't have the chips to trade, then you don't play.

This is why Im against privatizing any type of natural resource. Especially when it's done by proxy(e.g. the U.S. controlling viable African farm lands).

And as much food that is sent to grocers year round that is thrown out and trashed is embarrassing.

Yes, we have a food and resource problem, but it isn't strictly a problem of not being enough rather than purposeful wastefulness and misuse.

Better management of what we have will put a lot more food on more people's tables. The have AND the have-not's.

As far as living forever, I think the human life span is growing shorter every decade. But for some reason we've been told we live longer as apposed to hundreds of years ago when the average age was over 100. That's with war, and disease, etc. etc.

With cancer on the rise and god knows what else, how we gonna live forever when cant even keep people from getting(and staying) sick?
