Eddy van Heel, Founder & CEO Prescan
Noah is a mythical person from the Tanakh, the Bible and the Koran. In Genesis 6 to 9 you can read about him. According to the biblical timeline Noah was born in 2990 BC. When he was 500 years old, he built the ark and 100 years later the flood took place (in 2390 BC). He survived this and brought us into a new world. The present world. A world where we do not longer become hundreds of years old. Hundred, if we're lucky. Or luck? Ask an average human being if he wants to be 100 years old and half will say: it is not necessary for me, unless in really good health.
Last year I visited Daan, a respected doctor, friend and a philosopher in his new world: Los Angeles According to Daan the toddlers at present will easily reach an age of 120. And somewhere I believe him.

Look at the present 50 years old persons and compare that with our dear parents and grandparents. In those days they began the last stage of life, and now they just starting to live. One is running, watches their weight and swopped the pork chop with potatoes for an healthy oily piece of fish and a sweet potato. Organic of course. I have a son of eleven years old. He and most of his friends want to drink water when I offer them something to drink. Cola has had its days of glory. At least in our country. I believe that in the country of Daan there are still many differences. More than with us. I predict that in 50 years' time the Dutchman will not only be the tallest, but also the healthiest people in the world. More than ever, medical technology is in development. Stem cell examination, early diagnosis and DNA testing is in full development. Where 15 years ago cancer was still seen as an untreatable condition, it is now often treatable and with success. If you are in time.
Will it be treated as a common flu tomorrow? Will we soon be able to clone organs in a test tube and simply replace the old, less functional organs? And do we know at birth of a child, which diseases he will have in the course of his life and at what age he could pass away? Silicon Valley is working overtime. Apple, Google and IBM, are all interested in us, the human being. 'Quantify yourself' it is buzzing through the streets of San Jose to Mountain View, and from Fremont to Saratoga. They all see changes for the future for mapping and monitoring of our most valuable asset: our body. And intervening in time, if needed.

Apps to keep us fit, chips to detect cancer, heart irregularities can be sent directly to our physician and a biometric route map to remind us if and when we are getting a disease. And an organ is already made to replace the old one. All about that to achieve one goal: growing old by staying fit, healthy and happy as long as possible. In the near future Steve Jobs would still be alive and his Apple Watch will detect cancer cells in the body, even before there is a tumour. And that time is closer than we do think. Nostradamus predicted it all in his Les Propheties in 1555: at the beginning of the 21st century we will be able to clone our own organs. Stem cell examination also shows that this will not take much longer. Will it soon possible to determine our own destiny? Should we become again as old as Noah in 2390 AD? God knew it then and He will know it now. For now I remain with the following words: enjoy life, enjoy each other and continue to do this as long as possible.
