10 Reasons We Will Live to 1000

Abstract:
A few weeks back, I encouraged readers when thinking about the future to "think 10X, not 10%" and the more I think about health care, the more I think this line of thought applies to this field as well. I recently came across this article entitled"The man who will help you live for 1,000 years." It is about Aubrey de Grey's new book "Ending Aging."

To most people the idea of living to 1,000 sounds absolutely crazy. But, as I explain in my forthcoming book, Jump the Curve, due to exponential advances in a variety of technologies the ability to do what sounds "impossible" today could very well become quite possible tomorrow.

With this brief introduction then let me provide you 10 reasons why you might live to 1,000.

#7: Nanotechnology: The National Cancer Institute has speculated that due to advances in nanotechnology cancer could be a treatable disease as early as 2015.
