If Humans Can Live Longer using the help of scientists. What can the pros be and even the cons?

TY! (PS- Need it really fast, pweese do it fast :) )


The pros: they have created many drugs resisting diseases. They are still developing formulas. Cons: as wet take medicines every time, many diseases nowadays are drug resistant. So it takes a long time to make it go.

That’s one of the findings of a Pew Research Center report that came out last week. In fact, almost 70 percent of those surveyed said an ideal lifespan would be somewhere between 79 and 100 years.Yes, one reason they’re wary of that much longevity is the fear of how their bodies and minds would hold up–despite the promise of medical advances that will keep both healthy much longer. But more than half also think treatments that prolong life for at least four more decades could be a bad thing for society. More specifically, two out of three people agreed with the statement that “longer life expectancies would strain our natural resources.” And while almost 80 percent of those surveyed said they believe life-extending medicine should be available anyone who wants it, two-thirds of them thought it would be accessible only to the wealthy.

Naturally, this raises some hefty ethical issues, which Pew addresses in an accompanying report.

Would so many more healthy old people make it that much harder for young ones to get jobs? Will everyone just assume they’ll have multiple marriages since one won’t have much chance of lasting a lifetime? With mortality put off for decades, would people feel less motivated to have children? And the big one: By delaying death so long, would daily life have less meaning?
