Working Towards the Medicine of Physical Immortality

A good, balanced article from The Age gives an overview of current research and opinions within the scientific community on medical research that will lead to (effectively) physical immortality. Many commentators feel that a crude form of physical immortality - based on stem cell therapies, replacement organs grown to order and other forms of regenerative medicine to repair the effects of aging - may be only a few decades away. This is, of course, provided that the US and other governments do not continue in their misguided, damaging attempts to hinder or ban these forms of medicine. Read the article; some food for thought and sensible advice.
