The life of any one individual is of no importance to nature. That is why we age.
Now, scientists are beginning to manipulate the aging process by altering genes which determine how long we live.
As Judy Campisi of Berkeley lab, California puts it “For the first time, there’s a real hope of changing what we are, and what our genes tell us we must do.”
