If you could go to a doctor, and for ten thousand dollars you could take five years off your biological age, would you do it? Chronological age is how long you've been alive. Biological age is a representation of the damage the processes we know of as aging have done to your system.

Thank you for your insightful answer. I have a question for you. If you were incorrect in your assumption that your loved ones would not get the treatment, and you could learn and write new things, what would you choose?
I still would not get the treatment. In living forever, there is an end to everything and you would have to face all of the bad with the good. By the time you live to be 500, you don't want to be alive with all of the horror's you've seen.
You said it. I think one of the most filthy and unhealthy places one can find one's self is at the local clinic or hospital. I too, avoid them...if at all possible. The second point you made that I really like is that Dr.'s are legal drug pushers.
According to Scripture, mankind's age limit is 120 years. It seems we can do nothing to exceed this limitation, but there is plenty we can do to minimize it. The Almighty has given us all a predetermined amount of time that cannot be extended.
Thank you for your answer. It is indeed a beautiful one. You wish to serve God. I have some questions for you. Is it suicide to refuse a treatment that could save your life? Isn't suicide a sin? This is, of course, assuming God exists.
I personally do not believe that abstaining from medicine, which may or may not work, is the same as suicide. If one has a condition that is terminal, and one has made peace with God, then I do not think they are required to accept risky treatments.
