Live for Centuries, But How?
At a time when Corona has wreaked havoc on the world, the emergence of research on the length of human life may seem like an uninteresting and unnecessary task, but it is still ignored in scientific and social circles. It is not possible to do so, because everyone wants to live as long as possible and with this desire, he has been wandering around in search of the "water of life".
The report cites research from the USC Dorn Saif College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences. If the bee is given a drug called "MIFE PRIS TONE", molecule form after its mating season, then its life is extended. This fruit fly is considered an ideal model for genetics research, as its specific biological system and life span are very similar to those of humans.
Scientists have found that during the mating season, the male bee receives a molecule called SEX PEPTIDE, which shortens the life of female bees. Experts injected molecules of the drug into the bee's body before the mating season, which not only eliminated the side effects of the bee but also extended its life. In contrast, female bees that were not given these molecules died sooner. The drug is used in gynecological diseases and certain types of cancer in women. Named "DROS PHILA", the fruit fly is considered suitable for laboratory experiments due to its life span, relatively simple genetics, and other specific characteristics.
The stages of man's life from ancient times to modern times have always been the focus of the attention of scientists. It is well known that the ancients lived for eight, eight hundred years, but no scientific evidence is available.
A Dream, A Quest
The experiment, conducted in a state-of-the-art laboratory equipped with electronic microscopes at Doreen College in the United States, is a small part of the experiments that have taken place in millions of laboratories and universities around the world, making the centuries-old dream of longevity a reality. Are busy giving No one wants to die? Perhaps it was this desire that compelled him to explore the dense forests of herbs, to prepare medicines in laboratories, to prescribe ascetics, to search for healing ingredients in minerals, and to search for thousands of other possible sources. Man, on the whole, apparently could not achieve anything special except an increase of a few years, and these few extra years are also doubtful to some experts, because a man claims a thousand times that he is older today than he was in the past. Yes, but experts call it a game of arithmetic. According to him, today's man is living the same age as the man of ancient times. The stages of man's life from ancient times to modern times have always been the focus of the attention of scientists. It is well known that the ancients lived for eight, eight hundred years, but no scientific evidence is available.
The average age of people in Roman times is said to be 28, 26 years, but at that time Socrates, Hippocrates, and other philosophers also reached the age of 72, 70 years. Therefore, no definitive average age formula can be determined. However, archaeologists have found that the average age was very low in ancient times. According to a July 2020 report, the age of 80 human skeletons found near Anna Tulia's site "CAPP A DOCIA" is said to be 25 to 30 years old. These monuments are 10,000 years old. Similarly, other signs do not indicate the longevity of human beings. In them, too, the age pattern seems more or less the same as in modern times. If most people die in childhood or adolescence, there is no shortage of those who live to be 80 or 70 years old.
According to the World Health Organization, the average life expectancy of a 52.5-year-old in 1960 has risen to 72.70 today. Birth and death records in Britain began years ago, based on which it is said that if a girl was expected to be 42 years old in 1841, she could expect to live to be 83 years old and a boy 79 years old today.
The idea that we are older than our ancestors emerged after 1960 when the World Health Organization began to record births and deaths around the world, which later became the basis for the average human lifespan. According to the World Health Organization, the average life expectancy of a 52.5-year-old in 1960 has risen to 72.70 today. Birth and death records in Britain began years ago, based on which it is said that if a girl was expected to be 42 years old in 1841, she could expect to live to be 83 years old and a boy 79 years old today. But in September 2018, the UK's National Statistics Office revealed that the increase in life expectancy has now come to a halt, as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease continue to rise despite better health facilities. Secondly, experts have now clarified the difference between the expected average age and individual age. That is, if some people live longer because of their precaution and good diet, it does not mean that the average age of the people of this country is higher. Similarly, in most poor countries, the infant mortality rate is very high, so estimating the average age of the people of this country based on total mortality would not be accurate.
In the first century AD, PLINY, an author, dedicated an entire chapter of his book to those who lived to be 100 years old. It also mentions LUCCE, a 100-year-old woman who used to dance on stage in her old age. Anthropologists conclude that in ancient times people lived to be as old as they are today. For example, experts cite a survey in Britain a few hundred years ago, in which more than 100,000 Europeans An analysis of the wealthy and rural dwellers showed that the British monarch lived shorter than the general elite. Another interesting aspect is that in 17th century Britain, the age of the people living in the towns was older than that of the aristocracy living in the palaces. Similarly, the ages of the Mughals and other kings in the subcontinent were not enviable.
However, after the Industrial Revolution in Britain, when medical facilities became commonplace, there was a sudden increase in life expectancy from a comfortable life, but the question of what percentage of people had access to this facility and whether it was Can facilities be the basis of the average age of the entire country's population? Those who see medical care as the basis of longevity give the example of Europe, where the average age between 1500 and 1800 was between 30 and 40 years, but doubled in just 15, 10 years. The main reasons for this were immunizations, integrated health systems, clean water, and other factors, and these changes were very rapid.
In 1800, British doctors did not even wash their hands before surgery. Canada's maternal and child mortality rate until 1921 was similar to that of today's backward countries. Although the average age in most European countries after development is around 80, 75 years, problems such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease have sounded the alarm. The problem is the same in the United States, where two-thirds of the population is obese. At the same time, diabetes is on the rise. In other words, human life expectancy is increasing and diseases are increasing. This biological cycle has been going on since the beginning.
Now scientific research has shown that when the stomach feels 70% full, one should refrain from eating. "If you cut 25 percent of the calories from your daily diet, the aging process will slow down,"
Japan, number one in longevity
According to a survey conducted a few years ago, the average age in Japan was 84.5 for men and 88.5 for women. Due to declining birth rates in Japan, the general population is shrinking and the number of elderly people is increasing. People over the age of 65 make up one-third of the total population. In 2018, the elderly were 28.4% of Japan's population. Currently, the world's oldest living person (woman) is also from Japan. According to research by experts on Japanese longevity, good and balanced diet, low in calories, hygiene, strong social relationships, health awareness, health and the best system of treatment are prominent. However, the most interesting aspect is their diet, which the Japanese call "Moderate Eating".
This means never eating on a full stomach, but when you are a little hungry, stop eating. This is the method that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) taught centuries ago, and now scientific research has shown that when the stomach feels 70% full, one should refrain from eating. "If you cut 25 percent of the calories from your daily diet, the aging process will slow down," said Dr. Dai Sooki of Kanazawa Medical University Hospital. Lives 100 years old. When the team of scientists went there, they also revealed the secret of their longevity to the low-calorie diet.
Future of Human Age
Can a person have eternal life? The answer is "no" because every living thing has to taste death, but despite acknowledging this fact, man, whether he is a cave dweller or a multi-story skyscraper in modern times. He wants to live as long as possible. However, after various experiments in 1939, medical experts announced that the age of a human being cannot be determined definitively and no such formula has been invented so far. Can tell how old a person will be. However, scientists have come up with a simple formula called "VO2 max". That is a measure of the amount of air in the heart muscle. It has also been found that as we age, this amount of air decreases automatically and the amount of air to the heart muscle decreases.
Based on this formula, a young athlete's scale is between 50 and 60 and his age can be estimated at 100 years. But, as this scale decreases in later life, so does age. Experts have concluded based on various experiences, observations, and studies that if a person lives in a clean environment, he has access to clean water and a balanced diet with low calories, he does not suffer from any kind of stress. If the attitude is positive and leads a full social life, then he can live for at least 125 years. Those who live a hard life in the mountains and eat unadulterated, clean, and simple food have proved this formula to be true.
Significant in this regard is a recent study by Johns Hopkins University, USA, which found that among the factors that contribute to longevity, the best system of treatment, mutual social relations, participation in people's suffering, and helping them. These include having a purpose in life, keeping yourself busy, and fulfilling your responsibilities. The research found that young people who help the elderly also benefit from it. When you heal someone's wounds, you also find spiritual peace, which is the main cause of longevity. Research has shown that keeping yourself important and responsible and keeping busy (regardless of age) is one of the secrets of longevity that everyone should know.
The majority of women live a quiet life at home and do not face the dangers that men face in practical life. Experts agree that a healthy, cautious and positive lifestyle can lead a person to live more than 100 years, but the age limit cannot be determined.
If you look at the average life expectancy in the world, the average age of women is much higher than that of men. Experts did not let this aspect of research remain thirsty. According to a report by the World Health Organization, one of the reasons for this is women's unique biological system, which protects them from cancer and heart disease in general. Women do have medical problems, but they are not fatal. The second reason is the gender and psychological characteristics of women, under which they live a much less dangerous and adventurous life than men. They also naturally stay away from violent situations and dangers. The third reason is that women naturally stay away from various drugs.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has also cited a survey which found that women's lives change little after marriage, while men's lives generally change dramatically. The majority of women live a quiet life at home and do not face the dangers that men face in practical life. Experts agree that a healthy, cautious and positive lifestyle can lead a person to live more than 100 years, but the age limit cannot be determined.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has coined the term HEALTHY LIFE EXPECTANCY, which has been monitoring the state of health and well-being in all countries for the past 30 years. Based on these data, the agency predicts that the average human lifespan will reach 106 years by 2070, mainly because scientists and medical experts have identified the hidden secrets in human genes. And will be able to solve the codes. Cures for many ailments like cases will be discovered. Recent research suggests that human health begins to decline when there is a defect in its genes, but a well-known science fiction writer, Christopher Wenjic, does not acknowledge this.
"Based on the general population, which includes both the rich and the poor, estimating the average age may be untrue," he said. Due to the availability of health facilities and awareness, the majority of people will go beyond 110 years in the future, but in the presence of perpetual poverty and empire, deaths in childhood and adolescence, and various epidemics such as corona The number of people will not be less. In this way, there will be millions of people who will fall asleep for the dream of longevity.
Don't look at the Calendar
Everyone is interested to know what is the secret to the health of those who live longer? Interviews, books, and lectures by such people adorn the media every day, but a few years ago an American magazine, the Huffington Post, recorded the impressions of 100 men and women over the age of 100. ٭ Ruth, 100, said: Don't look at, spend every day with full enjoyment.
A 100-year-old British doctor, who still practices medicine at this age, said:“ I think exercise is a waste of time and the doctor needs it. Emphasize more than In this way, the importance of vitamins is overemphasized, you should forget them. Focus only on good, fresh food and fruits. Avoid doctors as much as possible, love people, and make a marriage happy. ”Another 100-year-old man said,“ Never hurt the heart of others. Be kind to people. Serve in youth. Do not compare yourself with anyone else, otherwise, you will never be happy.
Keeping your muscles active and moving is very important for health. I have never been in a cycle of accumulating wealth in my life. When we have to leave this world empty-handed, then why do we throw ourselves into the mess of money? ”* A 100-year-old man said“ My advice to women is to never marry an older man. Don't. ”He said of the food,“ I never eat to my heart's content. I always eat fruits, vegetables, and small amounts of meat. Fish is an essential part of my diet, ”said a 103-year-old man from Japan.“ You have to be lucky to live to be 100 years old. Also, cheerfulness and cheerfulness are essential in life, it teaches to avoid the difficulties of life.
The scientists also cited a 103-year-old woman in their survey who surprised reporters by saying, "The secret to my longevity is not a healthy diet, exercise or a purposeful life, I only do two things." I eat dark chocolate every day and go to church regularly every week. ”His statement has been the subject of much debate among medical experts. He took it to mean that these two works are a commitment to life for this woman, which keeps her passion and enthusiasm alive. Going to church and worshiping him is a sign of his trust in a higher being. According to experts, trust (faith) in the Supreme Being (Allah) also causes longevity in life.
