Modern medicine has had great success in fighting infectious disease and this is part of the reason why we have nearly doubled our lifespan in the last 150 years. But when it comes to the problem of aging, modern medicine has failed because it only treats the symptoms of aging and slows it down somewhat… As a result of this ineffectual treatment, the elderly die a slow and miserable death (usually from organ failure). What we need is much more POWERFUL regenerative medicine that can completely repair ALL the damage of aging!
Let’s never forget that each and every day that aging is allowed to continue on this planet, 100,000 people are involuntarily snuffed out of existence.
If we actually took care of the elderly, they could continue to be productive members of society without draining the economy. Any amount of money invested into SENS Research Foundation would eventually pay for itself.
