Will health sensors make humans immortal?

Not so fast! We need to get from here to there. Today, health/behavior monitoring and quantification sensors are all the rage. The Fitbit, a wearable sensor, is one of the more popular wearable tech devices for tracking your health. Fitbit tracks your activity (steps), diet, and even your sleep patterns. You can interact with the Fitbit using a series of tapping sequences and the Fitbit syncs all your data with your phone and computer. Then the process is to quantify, analyze, and optimize your wake and sleep life. Doing all this will not help you avoid your ultimate demise, but it could contribute to a longer life, and better yet, one where you're in better health along your life's time-line. The concept is that if you are monitoring your activity, food, and sleep, you can make adjustments to improve these areas; thus better health. The Fitbit Flex is only $99!

Texas doctor accused of giving fake diagnoses, faces $240 million health care fraud case

CNN Health: May 15, 2018
A 70-year-old McAllen Texas resident, Maria Zapata, went to see Dr. Jorge Zamora-Quezada because one of her knees was bothering her. The rheumatologist told her she had arthritis and that he'd give her injections "to strengthen the cartilage" in her knee, she said. After years of treatment that didn't help, she went to another doctor who told her she didn't really have arthritis. Zapata was not the only patient to be misdiagnosed, according to a joint federal and local investigation. The task force investigating Zamora-Quezada announced Monday that he was being indicted in a $240 million medical fraud case. The Department of Justice said Monday he had given patients chemotherapy and toxic treatments they didn't need, all to fund his "lavish" and "opulent lifestyle."
