Aubrey de Grey on Aging

Betterhumans has published an excellent interview with aging researcher Aubrey de Grey on the topics of research, attitudes and healthy life extension. He is bullish on the future of medicine for extending healthy lifespan, but at the same time calls for more funding for research in this field. Aubrey de Grey feels that with the right level of funding, we could see real age-retarding therapies (that at least double the current average healthy lifespan) in 25 years. It is an optimistic but quite possibly realistic estimate; read the article to see why.
