Age Process ssecorP egA

We've been able to replace organs for a while now - even after growing them in other living things and our own bodies. That could soon be a thing of the past as we start to understand how our organs actually age and accumulate damage. 

This would mean that if you have a bad heart and need a transplant to survive - (and be dependent on drugs to keep your body from rejecting it) - you could instead just tell your heart to repair and regrow itself to how it used to be. 

If they could do this in mice it's not a far step to do it in humans. The implications being that we could continually renew and de-age any parts of our bodies and essentially stop death due to old age. The implications of that are a lot more intriguing.. How would we live our lives if we knew we didn't have a particular time line? Your body could stay in your 30's and your mind could just keep improving and get smarter and smarter. 

I'm down.

Harvard scientists reverse the ageing process in mice – now for humans

Harvard scientists were surprised that they saw a dramatic reversal, not just a slowing down, of the ageing in mice. Now they believe they might be able to regenerate human organs

"Scientists claim to be a step closer to reversing the ageing process after rejuvenating worn out organs in elderly mice. The experimental treatment developed by researchers at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, turned weak and feeble old mice into healthy animals by regenerating their aged bodies."
