When unable to sleep last night, I clichédly tuned into a self help special on KNME. It featured a lecture with bearded doctor, Andrew Weil. On aging, he mentioned that some people think humans can live to be 1,000 years old. I looked this up today, and found another bearded doctor, Aubrey de Grey. He thinks the first person to live to 1,000 could be 60 already. Here's an old article written by the doctor, and a recent article that mentions him.
