Most of us can expect to live to be around 80 years old, but some even live beyond a hundred years. In places such as Okinawa, Japan, and Sardinia, Italy, there are many people who have passed their hundred. As the oldest person in history, French woman Jeanne Calment is named, who was 122 years old. She was born in 1875 and the average life expectancy at that time was about 43 years.
In such a situation, a question that people have been asking for centuries, how long can
The oldest and still the most widely used method for calculating life expectancy and lifespan is the Gompertz equation. The first assessment in this regard was made in the 19th century that human mortality from disease increases rapidly over time. Sure, that means your chances of dying from cancer, heart disease, and other infections almost double every eight to nine years.
There are a number of ways in which the formula can be changed to describe how various factors affect the life span of a population. The Gompertz calculation is also used to calculate health insurance premiums – which is why these companies are curious to know if you smoke, are you married, or something similar, so that they can make this estimate. Guess how many more days you will live.
One way to find out how long we’ll live is by looking at how much and how much of our organs’ function declines with age. We match the declining functionality of organs with our age. For example, eye function and how much oxygen we use when exercising show a general trend of decline with aging, with most calculations indicating that the average person’s organs will function until they are about 120 years old. . But these studies also highlight increasing variation among people as they age.
For example, some people’s kidney function declines rapidly with age, while others do not. Now researchers from Singapore, Russia and the US have taken a different approach to estimate the maximum human lifespan. Using a computer model, they estimate the extent of human life to be about 150 years.
to live up to 150 years
Naturally, there has to be a correlation between your likelihood of death and how quickly and completely you recover from the disease. This is a measure of maintaining your normal body balance. In fact, with age, the ability to maintain this balance decreases. Generally, the younger the person is, the faster the recovery from the disease.
But such estimates assume that the current older population will not get any benefit from the new experiments. As such they will not find any new medical treatment for common ailments. Although progress is made in this direction, some people get the benefit of it, others do not. For example, a child born today may rely on medical advances of around 85 years to extend their life expectancy, while a person who is 85 years old today will have to be limited to current medical techniques for much of their life expectancy. .
Difficult to increase healthy life span by 15-20%
According to the study you need three important things for maximum lifespan. The first is the good gene, which gives a good hope of living beyond a hundred years. Second, an excellent diet and exercise plan, which can add up to 15 years to life expectancy. And finally, the third is the progressive increase in knowledge over time of treatments and drugs that can prolong a healthy life span. At present, it is extremely difficult to increase the healthy life span of normal mammals by 15–20%, because our understanding of the biology of aging is incomplete. But given the current pace of progress, we can confidently expect an increase in life expectancy.
