“Life expectancy in 1900 in the United States was forty-seven. By the end of that same century it was seventy-seven. This change isn’t finished with us yet. Old age is absolutely a new phenomenon. There is a crisis on the horizon and we will surely reach it if we do nothing, but there is an alternative, and we’re pursuing that alternative at the Stanford Center on Longevity.”
