Viagra er mer viktig enn å kurere kreft?

Vi bruker mer penger på å forske fram bedre viagra enn vi bruker på å forske fram hvordan man kan utføre denne kreftkuren som ville kurert ALL kreft. Er det et tilfelle av “ikke tenk på helsa så lenge du får den opp”?

Her er et bilde som viser hva aldring er:

Kan man kurere kreft?

Å kurere kreft har lenge vært et mål. Er det mulig, og hvis det er mulig, hvorfor har det ikke hent til nå?

If not to chase the fountain of youth, what else?

If we are not to chase the means to live forever, what is a good enough endavour for our nonrefundable lives? Just drink and be merry until we die and then it didn’t matter? Or make children that suffer the same finite fate as us? Nay, I say we focus our resources on researching the aging process, cardiovascular disease, cancer, in order to find medicines against it, so we have younger, healthier bodies, even when our chronological age (clock-age) is over a hundred.
When your final day comes, would it not be nice to think “I live today because I did all that I could to live as long as I possibly could” instead of “If only I did all that I could to live as long as I possibly could, then I would have another day to drink and be merry”.

I could have a motorcycle, or I could spend more time getting funding for rejuvenation biotechnology research.
I could have a large house, or I could spend more time getting funding for rejuvenation biotechnology research.
I could study hard to become the best in something that gets me money and fame and a place in the history books, or I could spend more time getting funding for rejuvenation biotechnology research.
I could have children, a huge family, who I shape and educate to become world-leading chess players, artists, mathematicians, or I could spend more time getting funding for rejuvenation biotechnology research.
I could have a beer on a saturday night, or I could spend more time getting funding for rejuvenation biotechnology research.
I could have a party on a saturday night, or I could spend more time getting funding for rejuvenation biotechnology research.
I could take a drive, or I could spend more time getting funding for rejuvenation biotechnology research.
I could go fishing, or I could spend more time getting funding for rejuvenation biotechnology research.
I could do what I want, or I could spend more time getting funding for rejuvenation biotechnology research.
I could do what you want me to do, or I could spend more time getting funding for rejuvenation biotechnology research.
I think I am right in choosing the latter as much as I do. I only wish people were so intelligent I did not have to argue with them in order to get them to agree that more life in a young body is a good thing. They choose cars, phones, jobs, houses, clothes, based solely on their own wants and needs, almost without regard for the future or the rest of the world. But if you sell them a way to live longer in a younger body, then they are suddenly worried about the year 2100 when they think it will be overpopulation, lack of resources and energy.
Somehow people have decided before you mention it, that aging is set in stone, yet they know nothing about it, its not in any textbooks before very specialized college degrees, its not in many popular science books, its not on TV in documentaries, its not in the news, its almost unheard of. People know nothing about the aging process. All people have to go on, is myths and what they can deduct from their extremely poor knowledge-base on the subject.
Aging is plastic, calorie-restriction proved as much in numerous species, all it takes is the right technology, the right knowhow, and we can mold it. We can repair the 7 types of cellular damage that constitute aging.

We need a new genome project of sorts. The Human Rejuvenation Project. It needs a few billion dollars and 15 years. If we can repair just a little of each type of damage, which there are 7 types in total, then the rejuvenation project will figure out how for further development and implementation as a part of industrialized countries’ pension plans. The Human Genome Project took 10 years, from 1990 to 2000, and cost 5.5 billion United States Dollars (inflation adjusted 2013 dollars). Today you can sequence a human genome for under 7 000 USD.
