Longevity

My newest Futurismic column looks at longevity.  This is feeding a bit off of a question I asked the twitterverse (and the land of Facebook) about whether or not people would want to live to be 150 (assuming no negative consequences to us or our progeny or the earth).  Pretty much everybody said yes.

I’ve to change a few things to get to 150, or else the world around me has to give me more options.  But I just played “The Longevity Game” and clocked in as likely to live to 89. So there’s 40 years for things to change in, at least according to the game and assuming I don’t die in accident

During my research, I came to the conclusion that the proven factors for longevity are all based on lifestyle choices rather than science.  But there are some interesting science bits including growing and even printing organs (no, that’s not a typo).

I think it will be a nice ride.
