A Telegraph reporter caught up with biogerontologist Aubrey de Grey at the Eagle - the scene of a number of past interviews - to discuss his predictions for the future of longevity research. "Two people die every second, one of them from diseases that would not afflict a young person. That means that 100,000 people die unnecessarily every day. Or 30 million a year. ... De Grey thinks he can save these lives. In his assessment, there are only seven fundamental kinds of cell damage that occur in ageing (generating such side effects as arthritis, diabetes, cancer). He maintains that we have - or soon will have - practical solutions for each of them."
