IEA: How You'll Live to be 700 Years Old
From the Fountain of Youth, to the Holy Grail, to JK Rowling's Philosopher's Stone, the idea of immortality has been ingrained in humanity’s creative consciousness for thousands of years. But in the present day, eternal youth may soon move out of the realms of myth and Sci-Fi, and into a reality, thanks to developing technologies. Joining us today are Dr Steve Davies, Head of Education at the IEA, and News Editor Kate Andrews. Steve argues that within the next few decades, the ability to halt and even reverse the aging process may well be within the reach of science. He also outlines some of the potential upsides of Eternal Youth.
