F Read the text and match the headings (A-F) to the paragraphs (41-45). There is one extra heading you do not need to use.
Would you want to live…FOREVER?
41 C) AN ANCIENT DESIRE
For thousands of years human beings have dreamt of cheating death and the aging process. In their fantasy world, they live forever and remain young and beautiful in old age. Well, it may sound incredible, but there are some scientists who believe that mankind will soon have the technology to make this dream come true!
42 F) DON’T QUESTION IT
Sounds like science fiction? Maybe. But remember that technology gives us the ability to do things today that people living only a few decades ago would have considered magic. Therefore, there is no reason why we shouldn’t believe that experts will make all this possible.
43 A) NOT LOOKING YOUR AGE
Some scientists believe that medical technology is moving so fast that by the end of this century, advanced antiaging technologies will be available, and it will let people live for hundreds or maybe even thousands of years if they want to. Of course, few people would want to live
to 1000 if they had to spend hundreds of years looking and feeling like a 90-year-old. But some researchers think medicine will be able to keep people looking and feeling as beautiful and fit at 500 years old as they were at the age of 251
44 E) THE NEGATIVE SIDE
Naturally, the possibility of living so long raises many problems. If people don’t die, how will the Earth cope when it gets so overcrowded? Many people believe that scientists should not develop anti-aging technology, and that they should let nature take its course, as it has been doing for millions of years.
45 В) A DIFFICULT DECISION
Of course, most scientists believe that humans will never possess such technology. But if living to 1000 becomes possible, do you think it would be a dream … or a nightmare? And, if you had the choice, would you choose to live forever?
G Listen to some people talking about mobile phones and match the speakers (1-5) to the statements (A-E).

49 Speaker 4 E) Mobile phones are good for reasons of safety.
