The secret to a really long life -- Be happy. Exercise. Eat right. And sign up now to get nanobots in 2030.

Abstract:
It's a relief that longevity expert Dr. Terry Grossman isn't going to suggest that eating birdseed is the only way to live forever.

After all, so-called "caloric restriction" has so far proven to be one of the few ways to extend life -- if you're a lab animal, that is. For most humans, subsisting on birdseed and carrot sticks would produce the dullest and hungriest eternity ever.

No, Grossman is arguing that all you have to do to live forever is adopt a few lifestyle changes and survive the next 20 years. At which point it will be possible to stop the clock, and perhaps even reverse it with cloned organs, bionic replacement parts and nanobots that putter about your bloodstream cleaning up messes, not to mention stem-cell therapies that replace damaged organs with your own DNA.

"Our basic thesis is that, right now, most of us don't have the possibility of living past 100. But in 20 years, the sky will be the limit," says Grossman, co-author with futurist and inventor Ray Kurzweil of the new book Transcend: Nine Steps to Living Well Forever.
