Can Human Aging Stop? A Radical New Theory Says „Yes“

Evolutionary biologist Michael Rose, at University of California, Irvine, says he has discovered a natural path to achieve “biological immortality” without the use of anti-aging drugs and stem cell treatments. Humans eventually achieve a period of non-aging, Rose suggests, just as several other multicellular living forms do, such as a creosote bush growing in the Mojave desert that has lived for longer than 10,000 years and the Galapagos tortise.

“The fact that such a diversity of eukaryotic  organisms  -all life forms except bacteria- can have indefinite lifespan shows you that there is precisely nothing about eukaryotic cell or molecular biology that requires an aging process,” Rose said, countering the view that aging is an inevitability, caused primarily by an accumulation of molecular damage and decline in physical function.

“It’s one you can start this evening,” the author of Evolutionary Biology of Aging shared in a recent talk at Humanity+ @ Caltech in Los Angeles. “It comes at no cost, you don’t have to buy anything, and, in fact, it might save you money.”
