TV3’s "30 Minuts" has devoted a programme to whether it will be possible to extend life beyond the current limits, by slowing down or stopping aging as if it were a disease. For this documentary, they interviewed Manuel Serrano, ICREA researcher at IRB Barcelona, who comments on the process of senescence and zombie cells: "For example, if you smoke, the aging process accelerates and these zombie cells accumulate".
