Question: What's on the horizon?

Robert Butler: Well, if we are able to slow aging and also simultaneously delay the onset of diseases, which looks like it is now within the realm of possibility, we could get rid of or very much delay Alzheimer's disease which is the worst in the inability to recognize one's loved ones, to not be able to think and feel; it is terrible. That would be true of other age related diseases, arthritis, coronary heart disease, all could be delayed as a consequence of new biological research and longevity science.
