Could treating ageing cause a population crisis?

The first in a series of videos on the ethics of treating ageing

Probably the most common question I get on ageing biology isn’t directly to do with biology at all. The single biggest concern seems to be: if we learned to treat ageing, where would we put all the people?

This video explores the reasons that this is less worrying than it intuitively seems—and why I am both a proud ageing biologist, and an environmentalist.

If you’d like to learn more about the ethical concerns with treating ageing, I’ve got good news! I’ll be releasing a free bonus chapter of Ageless in the new year exploring these issues, to coincide with the launch of the paperback. Sign up to be the first to hear when it comes out.
