The End of Ageing (2010)

Only available in Canada, United States

All over the world, human beings are living longer than ever before. This is due to many factors, including improved living conditions, lifestyle choices and medical advancements. While there is not a single cause, a growing community of scientists are pushing the limits of life expectancy. In the not-too-distant future, they may even be able to halt ageing altogether.

As the world’s population continues to live longer, our current economic systems will no longer be sustainable. Health care systems, and the economies that fund them, need to make major changes. Because a growing number of people are healthy enough continue to work and play, we will need to reevaluate the nature of employment and recreation.

In this compelling documentary we look at the causes of ageing and the advances that increase life expectancy. Based on these discoveries, Professor Rose Anne Kenny offers six steps to living a longer life. We also explore how to change the current economic and health care systems in order to sustain ever increasing numbers of people living longer. While there are no immediate answers, an optimistic future is not too far away.

For some reason I expected this movie to be more about consciousness and energy, and advances that will be made in this type of healing and understanding. I was very unnerved by the fact that pharmaceutical companies are in a race to develop an antiaging pill everyone can take! Or have organs surgically replaced with ones created in a lab! Or have a chip implanted so health care professional can monitor your every move! Very disturbing. Not the future I envision.

This is not the future of light. It is the NWO dream. Robotics, transplants, drugs???? No, ask Regina Meredith if this is the world ahead for her!

Interesting...easy to watch, well presented. Good mix between science and informal interviews...

I gave it a 3 star rating because I dont like the science behind this; how ever the statistics is very valuable, and so therefor this information is valuable to us all so we may dictate the natural change of humanity.
