Aging as a curable disease

British biologist Aubrey de Grey argues that aging is nothing more than a pathological disease for which we have simply not found the cure, and that "the first person who will live to 1,000 years old is already among us" — a statement some find controversial.

He says that aging is the result of the accumulation of “garbage material” that our cells cannot break down. De Grey and his team decided to look into the phase after death for a solution to sustaining life and youth: decomposition. They hypothesized that the answer lies in the decomposition of dead bodies, where there are bacteria that can break down everything in the human body, including those our bodies could not break down on their own while we are alive.
