A new study published in the Nature Aging journal looks at this challenge from a different angle, however.

Published by researchers from the United Kingdom and the United States, the study examines scenarios involving slowing aging, the reversal of aging, longer health expectancy but shorter life expectancy, and longer life expectancy but worsening health. Based on a model they designed using economic, health, and demographic data from the United States, the researchers found that interventions addressing aging are likely to simultaneously increase health expectancy and life expectancy.

Ultimately, the researchers say, the more progress that is
