Fantastic Voyage : Live Long Enough to Live Forever
The basic premise of the book is that if middle aged people can live long enough, until approximately , they will be able to live forever —as humanity overcomes all diseases and old age itself. This might also be considered a break-even scenario where developments made during a year increase life expectancy by more than one year. The book focuses primarily on health topics such as heart disease , cancer , and type 2 diabetes. It promotes lifestyle changes such as a low glycemic index diet ,  calorie restriction ,  exercise , drinking green tea and alkalinized water , and other changes to daily living. They also promote aggressive supplementation  to make up for nutrient deficiencies they believe are common in Western society. The book states that the purpose of these changes is to obtain and maintain idyllic health so that an individual can extend his or her life as long as possible. The authors believe that within the next 20 to 50 years technology will advance to the point where much of the aging process will be conquered, and degenerative diseases eliminated.
