Many of us have been living in hopes that scientific developments will put a stop to the aging process before we enter our final years. Sadly, we’ve got some unpleasant news — these kinds of medical advancements aren’t on the horizon. Yes, the average life expectancy has dramatically increased over the last few decades, but that’s as good as it gets.
What Science Says
A study from the University of Arizona has confirmed that it’s impossible to stop the clock. There’s only one definite in life – we’ll eventually age out in the end.
Although significant developments in curbing the effects of age have been made, nature will always win. So far, anti-aging techniques have focused mainly on the behavior of cells, with particular emphasis on how they’re formed and how they die.
Why Can’t We Prevent Aging?
To prevent the aging process, you need to create cells that behave like a young person’s. At the same time, you need to put a stop to biological inevitabilities like cancer and other cellular abnormalities that lead to death.
Sadly, this latest study shows that solving one of these issues only results in making the other worse. Because of this, there’s no real way to halt aging.
The Impact Of Cancer
Unfortunately, cancer will always beat us in the end. As we grow older, cancerous cells grow more vigorously and increase in number. So, getting rid of older, less vibrant cells only results in deadly cancer accumulating and shortening our lives.
On a darker, it seems humans are meant to die eventually. Unfortunately, it’s a sad fact of life. As we age, we’ll either be stuck with slower, older cells that eventually deteriorate as we come closer to our graves…Or, our bodies will finally give way to vigorous cancer cells that ultimately lead to the same sad result. All we can do is make the most of the time we have on this Earth; it’s no good fighting the inevitable!
