New you by 2022: biotech enhancements will help you ‘grow young’


Dick Pelletier


Ethical Technology

October 31, 2012

In just ten years, many of today’s older citizens might look in the mirror and ask, “Who is that gorgeous person?” Their reflection would reveal a revitalized body overflowing with enthusiasm, sporting a dazzling smile, wrinkle-free skin, perfect vision, natural hair color, real teeth, and an amazing mind and memory.

I kind of like my grey hair.  By 2022 I should be just about completely grey.  But I’ll sign up for just about any other enhancement.

Although few people want to live forever (scientists cannot even tell us how long forever is), nobody wants to suffer from age-related sicknesses. Eliminating diseases will bring humanity to higher levels of existence.

Go “magical future.”
