The researchers managed to increase the lifespan of mice by an impressive 25% by deleting "senescent" cells.
If we are going to live substantially longer, we need to engineer our way out of the current 120-year-barrier.
Rejuvenation would give us an extra option we currently don’t have, as right now, everyone is forced to face the burden of ageing.
If you can rejuvenate at the cellular level, then everything made out of cells, which is everything, will become young again.
Large mid-20th-century population growth will likely lead to an increase in the supercentenarian population by 2100.

A new article has described the ways in which mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) are being developed to treat age-related diseases.
If the findings of this study hold their own, we could be on the cusp of a new era in the fight to reverse aging.
To combat the processes that are killing us, substantial resources must be devoted to each of the many, many tasks involved.
There will be almost ten billion people living on Earth by 2050 and two billion of them will be over the age of 60.
