science, medicine, and the human race

i do believe healthcare is a birthright. i think as much research should be done as possible to fight diseases which inherently prolongs life. i feel that most people would like to die of 'old age' but what does that really mean? it means you die when you are 'old' but i guarantee there is more wrong with you than being 'old'. most elderly people have heart attacks, or liver/kidney failure, or ALS, or alzheimer's, etc. i do not believe that anyone can just die of 'old age' therefore with disease prevention comes life prolonging.
