Today in one of the major metropolitan Australian newspapers,


A cure for death

As science unlocks the secrets of human aging, immortality may soon be within our reach writes DAMIEN BRODERICK.

MEDICAL science still can't even banish the common cold. While it is beating HIV/AIDS to a standstill in the rich countries, using expensive cocktails of designer drugs, there isn't yet a cure or vaccine. Is it preposterous, then, to
suggest that science may soon halt and even reverse the aging process? That it may conquer death itself? Not at all.

[blah blah]

Vector those memes! :)
