Is it theoretically possible to reverse the aging process?

I believe it can be delayed with the aid of pharmaceutical equivalents of the legendary fountain of youth but to reverse it, I doubt. It goes against the grain of nature and maturing process. We just have to face the fact that everything is moving towards that direction and eventually die. What do you think?

Much research is going on with the hGH harmone that is secreted by the pituitary gland.This secretion helps in the growth of us and it keeps getting secreted as we grow into adults too.But in some cases the pituitary gland is infected and produces less hGH which scientists believe is the reason for fat aging.Research is going on on regularization of the secretion and reversing the aging process.

We can delay the aging a great deal - I have done it with food supplements from natural sources. The humans in our days are programmed - according to the scientists - to live about 120 years under optimal circumstances. We were created to live for ever on the earth in a paradise, as the Bible teaches, and I believe that this plan that God had from the beginning, will be fulfilled. King David wrote in Psalm 37: "The righteous themselves will possess the earth, And they will reside forever upon it." The book of Job describes the restoring of the human body in the future: "Let his flesh become fresher than in youth; Let him return to the days of his youthful vigor."

Delayed yes, reverse it no. But I'm not closing my doors to its possibilities, If you take a look at most of the science fiction movies made 2 decades ago, you'll probably agree that those things are just products of the mind and are just too good to be true but thanks to leaps and bounds of science and technology things that appear only in science fiction movies are things you can't even live without now a days. There's nothing impossible in this world, as long as the human mind keeps that curiosity to learn new things something new will always come up. Even the discovery of that elusive fountain of youth, It's just a matter of time...

in my opinion we can stop aging that is natural, every one in the world must be born, young , old and die after that we can have our eternal and peace life with god =)

I don't like the idea. I am a born Catholic and I believe that we just borrowed our body from God and will all turn to dust in the end. Why would we want to delay when it is the natural process of life. =) Go with the flow. What matters is what we do during our time. =)
