SCIENTISTS are developing drugs to reverse the ageing process which could double the human life span
Top biologist Andrew Steele predicts that scientists are on the cusp of making a breakthrough which will effectively reverse the ageing process in humans and effectively double the expected lifespan. In his book, Ageless: The New Science of Getting Older Without Getting Old, Mr Steele says that the “dream of anti-ageing medicine” is very close to becoming a reality.
Mr Steele told The Guardian that drugs being developed could prevent the usual health issues associated with getting older, such as arthritis and brittle bones, essentially “increasing a person’s healthspan.”
“We can come up with treatments that slow down the whole ageing process, deferring diseases into the future,” he added.
“I think we are very likely to have a drug that treats ageing in the next 10 years,” Mr Steel predicted.
