THIS BOOK IS a promise and a warning. It is a promise of a time when we will live longer and much healthier lives--of one hundred, two hundred, possibly five hundred years. It is also a warning of what could happen when we do. It tells little about diet, very little about coping with aging, and nothing about whether one should choose to age or not. What it says is that we will have a choice.
We will be able to prevent, even reverse, aging within two decades. At the same time, and as part of the same process, we will also cure most of the diseases that now frighten and destroy us. Cancer, a disease in which malignant cells refuse to age, will be among the first to go. Instead of being a source of terror and tragedy, it will become a bad memory, an inconvenience. Diseases that we think of as part of growing old could soon disappear. By profoundly increasing our "health span," we will also increase the human life span. When we do, we will change human society in ways we will applaud, ways we will regret, and ways we cannot foresee. This book is the story of how we are conquering aging and of what the consequences will be. It is the story of our hopes and our fears, and of change that will soon shake our world. We are about to change history forever.
