Advantages and Disadvantages Increased longevity
Longevity is a controversial topic in many countries. Although I think humans can generally live to up 100 years old, for humans to live up to 100 years old in the world, is a great challenge itself. It would be a Mirada for someone to live on a centenarian, especially without the help of medicine. Nowadays, scientists are battling to alter our lifespan by human genetic engineering let human can live longer. Everyone can live longer, not just her. Just because of this, the populations in the world are growing up and cause a lot of problems. In my essay, I will explain the advantages and disadvantages of increased longevity.
Firstly, I will talk about the advantages of increased longevity is can take care of their own families, because medical facilities can give human live longer also can also give they some energy than, give they continue working to help their family to make money to them. For example, talk about the oldest woman in Kazakhstan, why she wants to live longer? Because she wants to care their son and grandson to see them slow growth, every day is very happy. Second advantage is if human can live longer, is also can find another wife or husband. Because, the wife or husband died, one person is very lonely. For example, if me can live longer, and my wife is early dead, I am also so lonely, than I can find to another wife to accompany me.

For example, long time ago, The Japan is people could live longer. Nowadays, Japan’s food consumption has increased drastically. So Japan’s population nowadays can live shorter than before.
In my conclusion, I think if people can...
