FDA Approves Testing of Anti-Aging Drug

We are already in the position of stressing some retirement and estate plans because people are living longer. A new anti-aging drug could increase life expectancy and put increased pressure on the very programs that ease retirement and handle estates plans smoothly.

Our individual cells may hold all the information needed to live longer and slow down if not halt the aging process. Some species are already in the position of sustaining their strength as they age.

However, the cells of human beings are continuously dividing and each division creates the possibility of more errors and damage. Eventually, enough damage has been done that the cells are no longer able to repair it all and we get weaker.

While the amount of time this takes is different for everyone, we plan our retirements and estates based upon when it happens for the average person. However, what would it mean for your retirement and estate plans if you could take a drug that would prolong your life for an additional 40 years?

As the National Post reports in "No more Alzheimer's? World's first anti-aging drug could let you live more than 120 years in good health," the FDA has approved human testing on a drug that might do just that.

The drug is already being used to treat diabetes and scientists have been able to use it to prolong the life of other animals. Anecdotal evidence exists that the drug has worked to prolong the lives of diabetes patients so there is good reason to believe it will work in testing.

Retirement and estate plans will certainly need to be modified if the testing of the anti-aging process goes well.
