Regenerative Medicine

December 23, 2019


We’re all getting old. Yes, even you. More and more of our population are over
sixty, some living well into their nineties. And as we live longer our joints, organs
and tissues begin to fail. Thereby diminishing the quality of our
old age. Not to mention the societal cost of lost
productivity and long term care. Our current medical technologies allow for extroadinary feats of augmentation and
replacement, transplantation, pacemakers and artificial joints. Regenerative medicine goes further.
Promising the repair of dysfunctional body parts with our own living tissue. Many species can regenerate. A salamander
can re-grow it’s limbs, tail and even it’s eye. But sadly only a few bits of us, like a healthy
liver, can perform that trick. Coaxing the rest of our body to do it, requires more effort.
3D printed, bio-material scaffold coated with layers of
the patients cells and cooked up in a body-mimicking oven can produce viable vains, bladders and bone. And more complex organs like kidneys
aren’t far away. Adult stem cells, while proving difficult
to tame, promise injectable repairs for conditions like multiple sclerosis, type
one diabetes, heart disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Techniques incorporating nano-technology
are also targeting spinal injuries, joint degeneration and failing organs. But in the world already burdened with
overpopulation, is it even ethical to invest and encourage extended longevity. Will our culture slow or stagnate without
retirements, or death of the old guard?

    I think this could be pretty good (if used on the right people). One might imagine a person like Albert Einstein living much longer than he should. But what about bad people? :/

    Eyes are a good candidate. From the day we're born our crystal lens starts hardening – until we can no longer change its shape to accommodate both near and far vision. In another part of the eye age-related macular degeneration (MD) causes loss of vision to more people than do cataracts.

    To counteract the lost productivity due to our old people getting old and being unproductive, we could just breed more productive people. One person to nurse the old person, and one person to take over the old persons previous job. If we can't breed more because the world is over populated then it looks like the big corps are just going to put up with less productivity, which is fine, because with less people on the the planet we don't need to produce so much anyway.

    Also one of the first working 'printed' kidneys was implanted in a patient over 10 years ago.

    The one child policy should happen now.

    It will never happen though, at least as long as there are separate nations.

    If we will finally make this work, then we might need some birth control and rethink our age limit.

    For countries in which about half of the population will be over 65 years old ,
    such technology will be vital to the civilizational sustainability ? in terms of human resources.
