How Will Nature Adapt?

Nature seems to find new problems for us continually. I raise the following question:

If we cure the effects of aging, we will basically be prolonging the state of our bodies at one point in our life cycle. Wouldn’t that clearly open a huge niche for bacteria, viruses, and parasites that are currently held in check by the aging process or whose population is controlled in part by the deaths of older generations?
