Reversing Human Aging
Animals can be an extremely useful resource in prolonging human lives and promoting general health. For example, there are organs in pigs that are similar to those of humans and resistant to disease and cancer. It is also possible to engineer wild animals that are immune to human disease and spread them through the wild, to ensure the downfall of common illnesses. Furthermore, by studying and reversing aging in mice and dogs, we could eventually reverse aging in human beings.
