Why Do We Grow Old And Die? Telomeres?
Science has been studying this but are finding answers in the very genes that make us: Finding the Aging genes!
Recent find in genes that are shut off at certain stages of life: Bionews article of new markers in the aging process.

As the research in aging continues with the effort to find the absolute master gene that determines the control on the systematic shutdown of key functions that lead to aging, we can be sure money can be made in innovative ways to prolong life. Drug companies are looking into chemicals that can be added to the body that will imitate the missing elements that are getting shut down.
Telemeres are a measure of how long you are expected to live. Here are the Lab explanations: Shay-Wright Labs - Telemeres
There is a blood test that measures the telomeres in your blood. Shorter telomeres mean your life will be short. Check out the article on the blood test: ABC news - body aging blood test.
I found this list at Wiki How to be a very realistic list of how to live longer. Live longer list.
In the pursuit of innovation, I was surprised at the lack of longer-life clinics. I can only believe with all the Weight Watchers and weight loss clinics that the next step would be the longer life clinics.
