New wave of medicine

Hundreds of years ago, people died younger. They didn't have all of the tests and procedures we have developed in the past years. They lived to be about forty, then passed on. Now people are living to be over 100 years old. I wonder how many 100 year olds are happy to be alive. They can't move around, they can only watch their loved ones live their lives. Many of them are shut-in and forgotten about, living with aches and pains, unable to see clearly to read or enjoy the things they once did. To live to be 100 probably means that they have outlived all of their friends. I think that if GOD wanted people to live to be 100, we wouldn't have had to create all these scientific ways to stay alive. He would have wired people to live that long. Are we wrong to be keeping ourselves alive?
