BREAKTHROUGHS IN MEDICINE THAT REMIND US WE ARE PART OF "THE LUCKY YEARS"

The world of medicine is reaching a tipping point. CBS News Contributor Dr. David Agus argues in his new book, “The Lucky Years", that cutting-edge science and technology will enable us to edit DNA to fight disease, reverse aging, prolong fertility and turn cancer into a manageable condition: http://cbsn.ws/1mDEe4y
  1. Reversing Aging
    "There are proteins in young individuals, up till age 25, that turn on stem cells... The cure for diseases is actually asleep within us and this is a way to potentially wake it up."
  2. Gene Editing
    "This has the potential of being transformative... You could take an organ from an animal and potentially changed the DNA to allow it to be used in a human for transplants."
  3. Fertility
    "Changing the playing field to equalize it."
