Event description

Description

Tuesday, August 14 | 9:00 – 11:00AM | FREE | Fountain of Youth. Possible or Not

This presentation will delve into the aging process of humans. Although scientists have provided several hypotheses for the cause of aging, an important revelation has evolved indicating that humans are genetically programmed to age and dye. Life span has finite limits, which have not changed in recent historical history. In addition, scientific data show that body cells also age and have a finite life span just as organisms do. A series of questions will be explored based upon these phenomena: (1) Is there a relationship between the aging of cells and the aging of humans? (2) Can science find ways to extend the human life span? (3) If the life span is eventually increased, what are the societal ramifications?
