Tampering with nature has always proved to be detrimental to the human race. Ageing is a natural process that is part of the bio-system and any measure to detour it should be carried out with caution. It is however vital to enhance the quality of every human life by keeping life-crippling diseases at bay.

Dear Sir, For the ageing problem to be slow we require the basic natural necessities i.e., clean air, clean water and clean environment. None of the above is present now anywhere in the world except perhaps in Amazon forest and congo forest. There also human beings have gone and slowly spoiling it. So called scientists take quantity x from nature and give back only x-1,2... In Hindu philosophy it is called Yuga characteristics. Nothing can be done except crying from rooftops to stop pollution. IT IS A PITY. HS NARAYANAN
