So you want to live younger longer? Dr Norman Swan’s ultimate guide to longevity | The Canberra Times

I’m surprised Swan, the proud Glaswegian, hasn’t heard of Queen’s song Who Wants to Live Forever, made popular, in my mind at least, from its use in the 1986 film Highlander. Christopher Lambert played Connor MacLeod, a Scot who’s an immortal warrior and remains so unless he is beheaded. Sure, it wasn’t very well reviewed, but something stuck in my mind about how terrible it would be to live forever if all your social connections were dead or dying. “Who wants to live forever, oh, oo woh, when love must die.”
