Cheating Deathby Marvin Cetron, Owen Davies, C. M. Herbert
Living forever is one of man's oldest aspirationsand it might become a reality. With advances in medicine and new gene research, the human life span could extend to hundreds of years. Cheating Death examines every side of the dilemma of agingfrom the promises of science to the consequences of living an extended lifespan. Topics covered include the science of aging and how melatonin is guiding the drive to extend life; how society will support the aging if they are retired for decades; food, pollution, population, and resource depletion around the world; the widening gap between poor and wealthy nationsand how life extension will increase that gap; whether people will still believe in a Creator and an afterlife; and how increased average life spans will affect national and global economies and job markets.
