Science has long ago seen a limit to how long a person can live – around 120 years. But now research is starting to catch up on our fantasies.
In The mystery of Ageing author Henrik Ennart meets the world's leading researchers specializing in ageing. They all come to the same conclusion: We, and especially our children, will live far longer than is common today.
Why is it so? Improved standards of living play their part but also our lifestyle. The advice from the experts differs quite a lot: eat fewer calories, stand up when you are working, eat more fat or cut down on meat and sugar. These choices affect the ageing process of our cells and when the researchers finally find the genes that control life length and learn how to control them, the question is at last: How old do we want to become?
With exciting reports from the so-called Blue Zones, from Okinawa to Sardinia not forgetting the Caucasus, this is a real page-turner within popular science.
The many accounts about the world’s oldest people, dead and alive are startling as well as the thrilling account for mankind’s search for eternal life from an historical perspective.
