As medical science progresses, we are successful in prolonging human life span by postoning death by controling various chronic medical conditions. But it does not necessary mean we can spend a comfortable, joyable, and lively long life. Many people suffer from hardships from diseases and medical science may be prolonging time with morbidities, which is called "failure of success" of medicine.
