By Staff Writer, TradeArabia | Zawya

UAE – It is more important to focus on quality of life not how long we live amid rapid scientific advances that have improved human longevity and could one day create Earth’s first generation of immortals.
This is according to senior healthcare and medical experts who shed light on the societal impact of human longevity on a panel titled ‘Do You Really Want to Live Forever?’ at the Dubai Future Forum.
Dr Jose Cordeiro, Vice Chair, Humanity Plus, painted an optimistic view on longevity, affirming: “If you are not looking at longevity, you are not looking at the future. Cancer discovered how we stopped aging – we can also discover how we become immortal.

“Those who make it to 2030 will gain one year every year they survive, that’s the belief. We will have the rejuvenation technology by 2045. We are living in most incredible time in human history – between the last mortal generation and the first immortal generation.”

People will continue to choose to live in the UAE due to the world-class healthcare systems and the quality of life it offers, and it is the country’s commitment to extend the best of research and latest scientific knowledge into the healthcare sector to preserve the health of the community, said Dr Hanan Al Suwaidi, Chief Business Officer, Dubai Academic Health Corporation.
