Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever

Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever (Rodale Books, ISBN 1-57954-954-3), published in 2004, is a book authored by Ray Kurzweil and Terry Grossman. The basic premise of the book is that if middle aged people can live long enough, until approximately 120, they will be able to live forever—as humanity overcomes all diseases and old age itself. This might also be considered a break-even scenario where developments …

Longevity escape velocity

Longevity escape velocity (sometimes referred to as Actuarial escape velocity [1] ) is a term used in the life extension movement. It is a hypothetical situation in which life expectancy is longer than the time that is passing. For example, in a given year in which longevity escape velocity would be maintained,

Ifood (isotopic food)

iFood ( isotopic food) contains nutrients in which some non-radioactive heats are isotopes (such as 13 C and 2 H , derived from C 4 -plants). Biomolecules that incorporate isotope heavier cells give rise to more stable molecular structures with increased resistance to damage associated with aging . [1]The inclusion of heavy isotopes may be active (selection for heavier isotopes) or passive gold (incorporation reflecting the existing abundance). Consumption of foods relatively rich in …

Hayflick limit

The Hayflick limit or Hayflick phenomenon is the number of times a normal human cell population will divide until cell division stops. Empirical evidence shows that the telomeres associated with each cell’s DNA will get slightly shorter with each new cell division until they shorten to a critical length.[1][2]


Gerontechnology is an interdisciplinary academic and professional field combining gerontology and technology . Sustainability of an aging society depends on its effectiveness, including assistive technology and inclusive design , for innovative and independent living and social participation of older adults in good health, comfort and safety. In short, gerontechnology relates to the environment , health , housing , mobility, communication , leisure and work of older people. Research outcomes form the basis for designers ,builders , engineers , manufacturers , and those in …
