Life expectancy is on the Up Global life expectancy has increased significantly over the past 50 years or so. According to research, the first person to reach 1,000 years of age will be born in the next two decades.

However, by early 2030's or more, it is expected that they could become a reality. with an existing neural function to restore cognitive abilities and functions. Through this technology brain damage will never be permanent thus prolonging life. Printing Organs Anti-Aging Enzymes Research has concdluded Researchers recently discovered how skin cells can be transformed into embryonic stem cells. This process will enable doctors to repair worn and damaged organs; and when necessary, regrow new ones. that two enzymes SIRT3 and SIRT4 are responsible for the process of aging. The cells' ability to divide and reproduce when hindered shows the signs of aging on humans. If science can restore the depleted cells, the effects of aging can be eliminated.
