US tech investors think they are close to finding a cure for aging
It is not inevitable to age. By getting old I mean the negative aspects: weakened muscle, fading memories, aching joint, or maybe a disease like cancer or diabetes.
James Peyer is 35 years old and wants to show that age is not like polio, or tuberculosis. These and other infectious disease were once the leading killers until we developed vaccines or effective treatments.
Peyer, the co-founder and CEO of New York’s Cambrian Biopharma longevity startup, asked why age should be different. In our 100,000 year history, these diseases have only been the main predators for humans in the last 75 years.
