Researchers said that drugs which can potentially retard the ageing process is still in the developmental stage and may be available in the next 5 to 10 years. If this pill works its magic, people might end up living for more than 100 years. 

Such an unimaginable development is due to the huge strides made in medicine. Research has found that a plant compound called resveratrol, found in red wine, is capable of extending the lifespan of fruit flies, worms, yeast, and fat mice, by stimulating proteins called sirtuins.  

The power of synthetic molecules in treating diseases of ageing has now become a pet subject amongst researchers and this may signal the beginning of times where ageing will be delayed and people will continue to live more than a 100 years.
