The Trillion Dollar Upside to Longevity (Longevity Technology)

“The Trillion Dollar Upside to Longevity,” provides a compelling economic perspective on the burgeoning field of longevity science.

Focusing on a recent study by notable researchers Andrew J. Scott, David Sinclair, and Martin Ellison, the piece articulates the vast economic benefits that could arise from targeting aging rather than individual diseases. This innovative approach, using the Value of Statistical Life (VSL) model, places a monetary value on the gains from extended life expectancy and improved health, presenting a radical shift in how we perceive the economics of aging.

Slowing down the aging process, thus reducing the rate at which biological damage occurs, not only improves health and mortality rates but also offers tremendous economic potential. Evangelou adeptly navigates through complex data, illustrating how a slowdown in aging could be worth trillions of dollars. 

This piece challenges conventional healthcare approaches, advocating for a policy pivot towards ‘healthy aging’ and its far-reaching implications on global economies and societies.

Sawers’ report delves into the specifics of Onera’s technology, including its regulatory approvals and future plans for geographic expansion and R&D. 

This funding milestone reflects the broader trend of integrating technology into personal health management, a key component in the future of longevity.
