Health and longevity

The question of increased human life expectancy is clearly of global importance. Even the ancient Greeks (Pelasgians) believed that die at the age of 70 years, almost tantamount to dying in the cradle. (For extant facts allegedly lived up to the Pelasgians 200 years, while maintaining its vitality, they have not weakened eyesight and not sedeli hair.)
According to scientists, the human cytoplasm no nothing that would quickly grow old: the cell is potentially immortal. It is believed that if a human could expand on individual cells and then each of them placed in culture medium, then such a "spilled" would practically immortal.
Most significantly, in the plant world the notion of "immortality" there is near. Consider that one of the species of cacti lives forever. Can you give specific examples of the "longevity" of individual representatives of flora and fauna. So, in the Orangerie of Versailles today "live" orange tree, planted by Eleanor of Castile in the 13th century in Mexico is growing Cypress-a contemporary of Cortes (16th century). According to experts, the African Baobab live up to 6000 years. Ordinary inhabitants of our reservoirs, carp and Pike — can live at least around 300 years. For several centuries old, many monkeys, turtles, and crocodiles.
Analyzing the facts, we can conclude that human life expectancy is not so fantastic. A person only needs to learn how to make full use of scientific discoveries, all of their mental and physical abilities. D. Taken is representative of Gerontology UK believes that, given the lifespan of any organism, up: part of the sevenfold to cetyrnadcatikratnogo period of time over which this organism reaches maturity, duration of human life should be more than 20 years.
