Can I Live Forever?

Presenter Dan Riskin asks Can I Live Forever?  as he embarks on a journey into the science of death and aging to see just how close humans are to achieving immortality. He learns that doctors no longer consider death a moment but a fully reversible process. Riskin subjects himself to a barrage of tests to find out his own predicted death date. And he meets a little boy who’s trapped in the body of an old man, thanks to the accelerated aging disorder progeria.
