How to stay young the first 100 years
Stay Young, I know what you’re thinking, Is impossible — do I need to know how to stay young the first 100 years? It sounds pretty far-fetched and ambitious, doesn’t it? It’s not, and you need to start thinking about what it means for you and your family to live a very long time. Scientists believe the first human life survive over 200 years.
Today we live longer You, 71 for men and 77 for women. Improved sanitation and lifesaving medicines mean lifespan has increased dramatically in the past century, to stay young.
Recently, scientists thought there was a natural on the human existence of about 120 years, beyond which the body could not cope.
Now that logic is being questioned as researchers break new ground in the search for ways to slow down the aging process. So can you slow down the aging process and boost your chances of a longer, healthier life and stay young?
We analyze some of the scientists’ more realistic suggestions:
HORMONES AND ALZHEIMERS
In men and also women, the hormone testosterone is and plays a crucial role in everything from muscle mass, motivation, osteoporosis to even sex drive, to name a few. testosterone usually peaks in the teens and are in gradual decline from early as 21, when men ages the decline speeds up bone thinning, Sleep disturbance, muscle wasting, memory loss, and more.
For example, the Andropause Society, which argues the male menopause does exist and we believe testosterone therapy can even help protect against from disease, and Alzheimer’s a progressive disease that destroys memory and other essential mental functions.
DEEPER SLEEP AND LIFE
Having a good night’s sleep could be a way of adding more years to your life, Experts at the University of Pennsylvania found that women who averaged 70 minutes more rest a night, compared with just 40 minutes in men, which may explain why they live longer.
They studied 25 men and women in their 20s. For one week each volunteer missed two hours sleep a night. At the end of the experiment, only the men had raised levels of a harmful chemical called tumor necrosis factor-alpha, or TNF, which is thought to increase the risk of diabetes and heart disease.
The theory is women’s sleeping habits have evolved to help them cope with crying babies and disturbed nights, so although they may get less rest, it is of much, much better quality.
SEX DRIVE AND DISEASE
A study done and published last year, by researchers from Cambridge and Harvard universities found regular sex could add extra two years to the average person’s lifespan. It’s thought frequent orgasms may prolong lifespan.
The release of chemicals into the bloodstream depends on potential damage in stress hormone. A study in Wales in the late Nineties showed men with a high frequency of orgasm several times a week, were up to 50 percent less likely to die from age-related diseases and Sex is one the best stress relievers to prevent heart disease.
GROW NEW ORGANS
Researchers in the U.S have perfected a way of taking worn-out, kidneys, hearts and livers to reconditioning them, so they are as good as new.
The technique involves washing the parts – obtained by organ donation – in detergent to destroy all existing cells and DNA before injecting them with stem cells from the patient who needs a replacement body part.
The new cells grow around the donated organ in the laboratory before it goes into the body. Because the immune system recognizes those cells, it does not try to destroy the new organ, and we hoped the breakthrough could and will save the lives, a significant scientific discovery from being used to combat aging.
SWIMMING AND LIFESTYLE
Swimming a few times a week can help you live longer than, running, jogging or walking, according to recent research and studies. Adults who regularly take to the water every day are less likely to die then runners walkers or jogging.
Researchers following over 40,000 men aged between 20 and 90 years old, for more 30 years and found death rates among swimmers were 53 percent lower than those men who did no exercise and 50 percent lower than among joggers and walkers.
Swimming is known to be one of the best ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle from heart and lungs problems. Some studies even suggest it that swimming can boost bone density and reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
MARRIAGE AND LIFESPAN
Fewer people than ever marriage can help you live longer – especially if you’re a man. Research carried out at Warwick University in 2002 showed married men were six percent less likely to die early than single men in the U.S.
Married women were also less likely to go to an early grave, but their risk was only 2.9 percent less than single females.
Experts think men benefit most because marriage promotes healthy behavior. When they fall ill, they have a spouse to care for them.
In 1900, Average lifespan in the U.S. was 49 years.
In 2008, Average lifespan in the U.S. was 78 years.
In 2017, Average lifespan in the U.S. was 81 years.
By 2050, University of Texas scientists suggests that there will be an estimated 800,000 U.S man or more over the age of 100, and many will be live to generation 150 years!
LIVING LONGER IN lIFE
Long lifespan can reveal that we will have some significant health concerns after the age of 50 years if we do not do something before we reach age 50 years to prevent those problems in the long run.
We have confronted with this dilemma or devastation of mental diseases like Alzheimer’s. The virus didn’t just start; we see it a lot more because dementia, and other conditions don’t usually begin until age 70 or older. Now that we realize that the chances are much higher that we will reach this age someday and we need to take some precautions and consideration to make sure we are ok when we get close to this age-related problem.
