- If you were born within the last few decades in the developed world, your life expectancy is about eighty years!
- Aging happens not just on the outside but on the inside – at the cellular level. When our cells stop dividing, we begin to experience the symptoms of aging. This is regulated by telomeres.
- The danger is that cancer cells have very long telomeres and can divide almost indefinitely. The problem is that cancer cells are mutated and dangerous so you don’t want them to divide indefinitely.
Life expectancy is a statistical phenomenon. You could still be hit by the proverbial bus tomorrow. -Ray Kurzweil
