Eight tips to dramatically improve your chances of living forever

Abstract:
So, if you're patient and follow some common sense guidelines, you may be able to stick around and see Halley's Comet return in 2061.

And again in 2137.

Indeed, all bets are now off for predicting life expectancy rates in the 21st Century. Pending breakthroughs in biotechnology, nanotechnology and information technologies will soon make it possible for us to treat an aging body in the same way we would repair an old and worn out machine.

Future treatments are going to make Viagra and Botox look downright medieval:

Your kidneys are failing? No problem, you'll grow new ones from your own stem cells.

Got cancer? Don't fret - it's nothing a bit of cellular reprogramming can't fix.

Suffering from Alzheimer's? Sounds like you could use a neural-prosthesis.

Too futuristic? Maybe, but a number of key thinkers are making a strong case for radical life extension arriving as early as two to three decades from a now - a list of thinkers that includes de Grey, futurist Ray Kurzweil, and philosopher Nick Bostrom. Entire communities have arisen to support the prospect, including transhumanists and the immortalists.
