Tomorrow world

Abstract:
With growing numbers of older people forming the biggest bulge in projected population statistics, there's a big push to make middle age the thing that happens in your 60s. And they're not going to want to be hampered by wrinkles, walking frames and reduced sex-drives. As everyone keeps on guzzling the latest antioxidant - green tea, resveratrol (the stuff from fungus-enriched grape skins that makes red wine so good for you) and blueberries - scientists are also rushing to get the fountain of youth gushing. Stem-cell research, drug developments and the possibility of nanotech therapies will vastly improve the outlook.
