Will You Live to 150 Years Old?
Dear Longevity Insider,
Anil Bajnath MD here with your Monday roundup.
Men and women are expected to live for 70 and 75 years, respectively.
But one study reveals the biological “hard limit” on human longevity is up to 150 years (sans disease and disaster).
So what does that mean for you? Will you live to see 100 or 150?
Well let’s look at the trend…
According to the United Nations Economic and Social Affairs, the global life expectancy is consistently on the rise. While more developed countries naturally have higher life expectancies than less developed regions, the trend still remains intact. Humanity at large is living longer.
Even in spite of the impacts of COVID-19 on fatalities around the globe in 2020, studies suggest that humanity is still on track for a longer life in the future. There are more “silver years” to come.
Here are some encouraging predictions:
- According to the United Nations (UN), “The share of the global population aged 65 years or over is expected to increase from 9.3% in 2020 to 16.0% by 2050.”
- The United Nations expects that around 2.5 billion people will be 65+ by 2100.
- The UN also predicts that there will be 3.7 million centenarians in the world.
The data is stacked in our favor. So we have every reason to care about the potential of not just our own longevity, but that of our children and grandchildren.
If you want to see 100+ years, you must get honest with yourself. Ask yourself these five questions:
- Are my eating habits on track for a long, healthy life in my 90s and 100s?
- Do I exercise like I plan to be around for another 40-60 more years?
- Am I currently entertaining people, places, and things that bring me joy?
- Am I up to date with all of my annual doctor’s visits?
- Where are my energy levels? Am I bursting with energy or am I sluggish?
It’s vital that you answer each of these questions for yourself. In order to reach a destination, you must have a GPS in place already. Without direction, you could be wandering around aimlessly until you completely run out of gas. To your longevity, Anil Bajnath MD
So stay aware and in touch with what’s going on with your physical and mental health. The body requires so many different nutrients just to fuel it for everyday affairs. So what do you think you might need to keep your body in top notch condition long enough to see the triple digits?
Only you can decide that for yourself. I’ve already made my decision though. Of the many things I do to keep my health in tip-top condition, I flood my body with powerful vitamins that not only help me feel good… but damn it, I look pretty good too.
My skin is clear and elastic, and my energy levels are peaking too. I attribute it to my morning regimen.
I fuel my body with what old Eastern practitioners call the “Food of the Gods.”
