Edited Version:
The medical world has strongly been influenced by technology. This can help individuals to have a longer thereby stepping into ninth decades of their life. Some biologists argue that at that advanced age is a daydream due to fatal flaws in a few numbers of the medical achievements and unhealthy environments that can ruin undue advantages of highly valuable advancements, and others refute this. Biologists would reach their aim in this case if they looked seriously at some technical difficulties in medicine and environmental issues, which need financial sources to tackle.
At a very primal level, medically technical problems which exist in medicine field including theoretical and practical faults (machine or human related) bring about sudden deaths per annum, although the problems are almost infinitesimal compared to successful curing and rehabilitation. Moreover, with this amount of technical mistakes, scientists try to immunise human beings against some new era epidemics and cancers, and these sorts of agents can act as a barrier that gets much more attention of researchers. Along with infinite efforts of academicians, people have some unhealthy environment, which devastates their nature and nurture.
Additionally, as researches have shown, some changes in peoples’ genes of longevity have been affected by some stress-based environmental damages during previous generations people suffered, namely air, sound and water pollution. Looking at longevity in the rural districts and secluded villages is a noticeable evidence on how healthy people, for instances our ancestors, used to live in the countryside. This needs boundless financial sources in metropolises for removing the stressful and polluted sources that have strongly irremediable effects on longevity genes in the long term.
In conclusion, reducing medical mistakes and environmental issues is not an easy task to conquer. It is felt that it would take time to reach for that advanced age in a decade or more if the biologists could turn their focus just on longevity genes instead of newly disturbing parameters on some critical parts of genes. 328/ 50

    Would you rather be happy yet slow-witted and unimaginative, or unhappy yet bright and creative? For instance, would you rather live the life of a brilliant yet tortured artist, such as Vincent van Gogh, or that of a happy but carefree soul who is a bit simple-minded?

    I prefer to challenge this question at first and bring up my viewpoint next.
    There are different successful people in the world who reached the apex through different procedures. Although some have faced torture to reach their goals, it does not mean we have to necessarily lose something in our life to climb the ladder of success. Anyway, I suppose the most enjoyable part of life is making progress and relying on your abilities to flourish and thrive. So, I personally go for intelligence and innovation rather than happiness along with naivety. Many people have lived an ordinary life so far and repeating this story can never excite me at all. We need to gain new adventurous experiences and foster our abilities so as to break out of comfort zone.
