What specific medical technology advance do you think humanity needs, to drastically increase our life expectancy?
My vote is for an excellent Artificial Heart.
Heart disease is the #1 killer world-wide - slaying 7.25 million annually. This is 4x more than HIV/AIDS, and 5X more than tuberculosis.
The human heart is a faulty organ. Weakest part of our meatbag - except tonsils and appendix.
I want Artificial Hearts that last a Century.
Plus, we need affordable robotic devices to install them, like the compact surgical booth in Prometheus… We don’t want our wallets gouged eternally by error-prone humans.
Is there another Medical Gizmo that you deem more crucial to our longevity? What is it?
