How far we’ve come

There was a time in the not so distant past that we has trouble keeping medicine clean. Infection was a huge problem, and perhaps one of the best things to happen to medicine was the use of antiseptics. This is just one of the ways in which medical science has advanced not only the realm of medicine, but also increased the life expectancy of humans.

As time went on, medical science began to build upon itself and create more and more medical breakthroughs. Today, we are at the point where the life expectancy is nearly 30 years more than it was just as little as a hundred years ago, and the news just keeps getting better and better.

Medicine in the future

In the future, it is entirely possible that we continue to increase the life expectancy to years beyond that of what humans perhaps were meant to live. With the use of synthetic organs and articulated limbs that are like something out of a science fiction movie, we not only continue to increase our lifespans, but shrug off serious injury.

Medical science is something that almost everyone can agree is a good thing, and in the right hands can bring civilization to brave new heights. Let’s hope that in the future, we continue to build upon what we have already done in order to keep people living longer and happier lives as well as eradicating a number of diseases that used to plague humanity.
