Yes. It can be done. It HAS been done. But first we must understand the tremendous need for it and then we will discuss what discoveries led us to this fantastic future.

In the past, people were not expected to live much further than the age of 65. Today the average American passes that age substantially. Since 1996, the baby boomer generation has been turning 50 at the rate of 300,000 a month. Since people from the generation of the Great Depression are still alive, we have in America an unparalleled paradigm shift - both the parents and their children are members of the senior population. At the beginning of the 20th century the life expectancy was 46 years of age. Now it is about 76. By 2030, people over the age of 85 will double. By 2040 40% of the population will be older than 50 years of age. America cannot afford to treat such large numbers of people with the typical aging diseases. There must be a breakthrough if the finances of this country and others in the world is to survive. As Dr. West has said there is a tsunami wave of seniors approaching the healthcare industry. If through a medical breakthrough, the senior population of the world can be rejuvenated, it will produce a surge in productivity and economic benefits unheard in the history of humanity.
"Organic bodies are perishable, while life maintains the appearance of immortality, in the constant succession of similar individuals, the individuals themselves are passing away."History of Regenerative Medicine
Our present state of research was inspired by the transformation of a mortal somatic cell into an immortal one through the disease of cancer. The cancer has no limitations as to its duplication. So the idea is that if a somatic cell can be reversed into an immortal one, then there must be a process that can be understood and perhaps replicated to rejuvenate somatic cells. Here is another informative video by West, about regenerative medicine. If you cannot see the embedded video, here is the link: http://tinyurl.com/4qmbqdq
BioTime is the company to watch in the next several months. Some financial sectors have speculated that the stock of the company after they implement their newest technology in February will totally transform medicine and be a cure for a myriad of deadly diseases. We hope this will be the case.
