This article addresses whether or not science will eventually come up with a way of slowing down, reversing or preventing ageing.


This article by Michael Tabb, writing for Scientific American, makes the following points:
  • Cells, when damaged, make copies of their chromosomes and divide into healthy new cells.
  • Most cells in our body aren’t built to last a lifetime and, at some point, lose their ability to replicate.
  • Experts have various theories about why we age, such as the ‘disposable soma theory’.
