Scientists back wild new theory that we could choose to live forever by the 2030s

If you were offered the chance to live forever, would you take it?

Some people would dearly love to live as long as the universe lasts, while others think that they’d be ready to move on after their allotted time on this little chunk of rock hurtling through space is done.

There are people who have gone to extreme lengths to increase their lifespan, spending vast amounts of money and living their lives by a strict regime in order to try and reverse the aging process.

That’s not really an option to the general public, who haven’t got a vast fortune to blow on treatment after treatment.

It sounds a bit far-fetched, doesn’t it?

Increasing life expectancy faster than the progression of time itself seems a tall order.

According to Insider, aging science has made some leaps and bounds in recent years as we’ve learned how to rejuvenate our cells and stave off the aging process to a certain extent.

People might have a ‘chronological age’ which keeps going up, but their ‘biological age’ could be halted or slowed meaning that you have the physiology of someone much younger.

Now, before you start thinking this means the world is your oyster and you’ll never die, while we’ve managed to achieve some de-aging in other species there hasn’t been any definitive example of it being achieved in humans.

Never say never though, and if it does happen you could end up living much longer than you expected.
