What will the new retirement age be and if I live to be 150 years old can I collect my pension for 85 years?

No, but you can work to 149 1/2.

Sure, a pill might get you to 150 but Soretoro’s death panel will stop you at 35 or an ingrown toenail whichever comes first.

This can’t happen unless people work to age 100. There isn’t enough money in the world to keep the Baby Boomers going this long.

Instead, at 85, they’ll be getting a pink slip telling them they’ve been dumped from ObamaCare. Problem solved.

I’m already taking supplements with resveratrol, red wine & grape seed extracts.

I wonder how much they are using in these tests? Recommended dose of the capsules I’m using is one day.

I’m not a physician; do your own due diligence, or consult a doctor:

Yep. That’s what I want. Barbara Streisand, Cher and Jane Fonda all 140 years old sitting on a park bench asking the young guys that go by if they would “Like to see where the elephant keeps his peanuts?”

Who in their right mind would want to live to be 150 during these times?! Give me a pill that subtracts 50 years so I don’t have to worry about having no savings or social security to live on with the thief in the WH trying to leave us broke and penniless without social security to live on if I live long enough to use it (they keep wanting to move the goal posts so the recipients will die before they ever get to use it if it’s even there by that time).

Yeh like who lives to 150 or even comes close? Look at the late Jack Lalanne, an avid lifetime exercise lifestyle, extremely healthy diet and husband to one wife. He lived to age 95 God bless him but he didn’t even crack the century mark.
Life in the birthday suit has a shelf life and no one escapes it—albeit one can delay the inevitable at times.

"We're finding that aging isn't the irreversible affliction that we thought it was."

The actual root cause of aging was discovered some time ago. When cells die, and are replaced by new cells, there is always a very tiny bit of degradation in the copy. Sort of like what happens if you copy a xerox from a xerox, from a xerox, etc.

It was theorized, that if it were possible to make new cells that were perfect copies of the cells they were replacing, then logically, there should be no aging.

Long story short, experiments with mice and other animals proved the theory was correct. Here's an excerpt of an article that explains the science behind this:

"Inside the center or nucleus of a cell, our genes are located on twisted, double-stranded molecules of DNA called chromosomes. At the ends of the chromosomes are stretches of DNA called telomeres, which protect our genetic data, make it possible for cells to divide, and hold some secrets to how we age and get cancer.

Telomeres have been compared with the plastic tips on shoelaces because they prevent chromosome ends from fraying and sticking to each other, which would scramble an organism's genetic information to cause cancer, other diseases or death.

Yet, each time a cell divides, the telomeres get shorter. When they get too short, the cell no longer can divide and becomes inactive or "senescent" or dies. This process is associated with aging, cancer and a higher risk of death."

Chavez had tried to revive the bones of the 230 year old Simon Bolivar but the very dead skeletal bones of the El Libertador was having none of it.

This will depend... Can i live as a 30-40 year old body until i hit 145 and then decline rapidly?

If so, sign me up....

There is so much to do in life. I’d have a third, or even forth career.
