How Biostasis Will Help You Benefit From Longevity
We all want to live longer, but only Biostasis can help you benefit from advancements in longevity science.
Biostasis and longevity are two words you’ll see a lot if you do any research into cryopreservation. Understanding what these words mean is important to grasping how a longer life might be achieved.
The definition of biostasis
Biostasis is the ability of an organism to tolerate environmental changes without having to actively react to them. Biostasis is typically a normal occurrence in certain organisms that have to endure difficult living conditions. This can include surviving droughts, freezing temperatures, or a change in pH levels, pressure, or temperature.
In the field of human cryopreservation, the goal is to put people into a state of Biostasis so that no freezing damage occurs at the temperatures required. Studies conducted on Biostasis in nature may provide us information about how we can emulate this in humans.
The definition of longevity
Longevity refers to how long someone’s life is. This depends on many factors relating to their life, such as location, level of fitness and overall health.
As technology, medicine and society advances, we are seeing the longevity of people’s lives increasing all the time. As humanity develops, the longevity of human life will continue to increase. Scientists are actively looking at ways that we can extend our lives even further.
What is longevity science?
Aging in cells in all creatures is a normal occurrence. But just because something is normal, it doesn’t mean that it is right.
One of the central aspirations of the Cryonics industry is to be able to cure all diseases, including aging. However, in order to do this, we would have to understand aging and the effects that it has on our bodies.
Longevity science is the study of the effects of aging. Understanding how cells in our bodies age and the impacts that this has on the rest of the body, could allow us to overcome it.
Advancements in technology could mean that we conquer aging and are able to greatly extend our lifespan. Longevity science will be the field in which we see these developments making the biggest impact.
The good news is that there is ongoing research into the effects of aging. And, results suggest breakthroughs that could change our society forever. But progress is slow. We need time to be able to really see the benefits of these current and future discoveries.
Recently, the first promising examples of biological age reversal by experimental interventions have been discovered. This suggests that aging will be overcome. But when? We just don’t know.
One way that we can be sure that we will be able to benefit from advancements in longevity science is by putting our bodies into Biostasis. Cryopreservation puts our bodies into Biostasis and prevents further cell degradation. It is the best option available to us today and leaves open the possibility for a greatly extended life in the future.
