Scientists believe that they have identified the upper limit of human mortality, which exceeds the current record of the oldest person in the world, 122-year-old Jean Kelmo from France, who died in 1997.
There is currently a trend in the world of so-called “biohacking”, the use of rejuvenation practices to boost life expectancy. “Biohackers” try everything from fasting to injecting untested injections. Last week, the tycoon in the world of real estate, Ari Rastegar (39), determined that due to the routine use of stem cell therapy, drugs in the hyperbaric chamber, etc., he has the biological body of a five-year-old.
While many researchers and people are hoping that one day man will live forever, scientists have now set a limit on that. They say a man could live 150 years.
Using the “iPhone” application and the huge amount of medical data of volunteers in Great Britain and the United States, scientists have confirmed that the maximum age that people can ever expect to live a century and a half.
Artificial intelligence analyzed health data and related trends (such as fitness), after which the researchers concluded that two data are most important for human life expectancy – biological age (related to stress, lifestyle and chronic diseases) and resilience (how quickly a person returns to a normal state after responding to the cause of stress).
They calculated that in the period of 120-150 years, the human body shows a complete loss of resistance, which results in an inability to recover.
As we age, we need more and more time to recover from the disturbances, and on average we spend less and less time near the optimal psychological state.
Professor Andrej Gudkov from the Roswell Park Cancer Center, who participated in the research, believes that it is a “conceptual breakthrough”, because it determines and separates the roles of fundamental factors of human longevity.
This explains why even the most effective prevention and treatment of age-related diseases can only improve the average, but not the maximum life expectancy, unless true therapies for rejuvenation are developed.
