Can aging be cured?

     I wrote about Aubrey de Grey in my book, The New Old. He’s a computer scientist turned biologist, with  a Ph.D. from Cambridge, who is researching – seriously – the idea that aging can be “cured.” His research focuses on dealing with the accumulation of molecules produced by metabolism, and repairing cellular damage. This means, as I understand, accepting the natural processes that are part of aging and then remediating them constantly. There’s a fascinating interview with de Grey in this month’s issue of Zoomer Magazine, which is on the newsstands now. If you’re not a subscriber, you can get more info here.
