A new study that covered the three large cohorts of volunteers has shown that even if a person is able to avoid cancer, cardiovascular or other diseases, the body’s ability to maintain their equilibrium still has a limit. And it today ranges from 120 to 150 years. This again returns scientists to the fundamental issues on aging mechanisms, which do not yet allow science to change the fate of people.
Scientists wondered how much a person could live if he lived in a favorable environment, avoided stress factors and did not get sick with cancer, cardiovascular or other severe diseases during life. Their work about which
As part of the study, the team analyzed three large cohorts of volunteers in the United States, Great Britain and Russia. To estimate deviations from a stable state of health, they measured the number of blood cells together with the number of steps covered per day, and then compared the results by age groups.
Their observations demonstrated that with an increase in age, some factor, in addition to the disease, led to a predictable gradual decrease in the body’s ability to return blood cells and gait to a stable balanced state.
Although most biologists believe that counting blood cells and the number of steps may seem rather heterogeneous, the collaborator of Peter Fedichev said: «The fact that both sources draw exactly the same future, assumes that the pace of aging as a phenomenon exists.»
The conclusions are based on the understanding that the rate of recovery from stress (inacre, overwork, colds, etc.) characterizes the dynamic stability of the body. Scientists have determined that at the age of about 40 years it is quite fast and amounts to about two weeks, and in the range from 40 to 80 years, it increases from two to more than eight weeks.
This means that as long as scientists cannot interrupt this irreversible aging process (if we assume that the main regulator of life expectancy is still the loss of the body’s ability to recovery), no tools for treating diseases will not significantly increase the lifespan man.
On the other hand, scientists do not see any obstacles to solving the problem of losing the body’s stability, so further research will be directed precisely on the study of the peculiarities of this phenomenon. At the moment, Zhanna Kalman is considered the oldest person in history, which died in France aged 122 years.
Recently, the other research team also studied human activity during the day and concluded that walking is really significantly
