I was reading predictions and forecasts made about the medical field. It looks like a lot of great things will be coming in the near future to improve overall health and life span. The prediction mentioned that the human life will go beyond 120 years (Halal, 2008). I think it is great because prediction is not only about the increased life span but also projects that these people will be in good health. I wonder how it will impact the world population in the coming years. In the past, several people have told me that they chose to be non-vegetarian because they want to participate in controlling the chicken population. If they won’t eat chickens, chickens will be everywhere. I wonder how those people will react to the increasing human population because of the increased life spans.
