We are already doing that, massively in the field of medicine. We treat HTN to prevent heart disease and strokes. A measure of the effectiveness of that is that since 1910, by treating HTN, we have lowered stroke incidence by 95%.
The same is becoming true of heart disease. Dr. Helen Hobbs of UTSW medical school has found PCSK9 receptors, which when inhibited by meds her team has found, will reduce incidence of cardiovascular disease, the majority killer in the developed world, by about 90%. And that is the first generation drug.
Vaccines and antibiotics have also reduced human deaths substantially for the same reasons.
The rising SOL which doubles with electric power being widely, & efficiently used, is another huge factor.
There is no reason why humans cannot live a very great deal longer than now, due to the major diseases of aging being treated effectively and more so in time.
It's already ongoing, because at present we are seeing more 90 year olds in developed nations than we have EVER seen before. With Dr. Hobbs' treatment this will add about 20-30 years alone to human longevities.
It's coming and being done already. Those are not marginal, but Major ways which are promoting human longevity.
the technique in the general case is called "aggregation of marginal gains". I learned the term a while back in reference to skill in sport and loved the term.
Elon Musk wants to rate journalists. He'd call his site 'Pravda'. "Going to create a site where the public can rate the core truth of any article & track the credibility score over time of each journalist, editor & publication," Musk tweeted.
The HOA in my friend’s neighborhood recently threatened her neighbors with a fine if they didn’t hide their trash cans, even though they’ve been in the same spot for over a decade. This is their solution.
