Description: Aging and death are not the absolutes we once thought they were. "To Age or Not to Age," tracks the pioneers in the field of anti-aging research at Harvard, MIT, Cambridge and other research centers. The scientists featured in the film have found the means to postpone and possibly mitigate diseases tied to aging and even get rid of and reverse aging itself. That this can be done no longer seems in doubt. The only real question nowadays is "For how long?" While "To Age or Not to Age" profiles the science of aging, it also addresses some of the moral, religious, practical and economic implications of increased lifespan. If we can postpone aging, should we? Or are we arrogantly challenging the laws of nature?
