Can the modern Human Live Longer and Better than Ever Before?Posted on June 5, 2017
We often discount modern human beings and their ability to cope with life since things have become so much easier. But according to recent local article modern human beings have actually gotten very good at survival by participating in more effective ways to extend our lives over the last century then ever before. This is according to a new study published in the Journal of proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The controversial question of whether a limitation to longevity is foretold in our genes is at the heart of this study. It does make clear that life extension starts with birth, with a child born in the last four generations having a better chance of being alive during infancy, adolescence, the reproductive years, and beyond than any of the 8000 human generations that preceded this one. The study authors, from Germanys Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, compared people who are living now with primitive hunter gathering socialites around the globe who have well-documented lifespans in industrial countries including Europe and Asia. In the new evolutions actuarial table the researchers wrote that”72 is the new 30”. The majority of the progress has been made since 1800 and technology has continued to move at an alarming pace. As Americans get used to longevity it is not surprising that the effect on cosmetic surgery procedures will be profound. Patients who are considering facelift, blepharoplasty, or brow lift who now may tell Dr. Kim that it doesnt make sense to have a facelift if they are 75 years old; may soon realize that having a facelift at 75 is not only possible but in many cases will allow the patient to enjoy the results for long time. Patients who are considering anti-aging procedures should contact Dr. Kims office and schedule a consultation.
