|Want To Live For 150 Years? All You Have To Do Is................ by anibirelawal(m): 7:44pm On Oct 09, 2015|
Give up sex, and you could live to 150 years. ( No be me talk am o)
What's the secret to a longer life ? According
to one scientist, it's giving up the horizontal
Professor Alex Zhavoronkov, director of a UK
think-tank called the Biogerontology Research
Foundation, says humans could reach 150 if
they gave up sex .
In a new book, the Ageless Generation, he
states that a life without intercourse will
enable us to live "far, far longer."
"I have sex occasionally, but not on a
permanent basis and usually with fellow
scientists," said the 36-year-old professor.
"Because otherwise, and I'm very sorry for
saying it, post-coital interactions can be quite
Zhavoronkov warns of the "energy-sapping
distractions" that come in the form of
marriage, kids and material possessions.
"Delaying marriage and reproduction is a by-
product of shifting your life expectancy
horizons," he told Mail Online.
"It would slow me up and distract me from
my research. When you're planning on living
150 years, marriage is a big decision. You're
in for the long term!'
He recommends instead that we exercise
regularly, including sit-ups and press-ups and
concentrate on eating less.
Zhavoronkov himself says he only consumes
between 1,600 and 1,700 calories a day -
mostly from fruit, yoghurt and protein bars.
Having a relationship and children is
apparently a distraction if you want to notch
up the years
The World Health Organisation proclaimed last
week that we could soon be living in a world
where living to 100 is normal.
Roughly a hundred years ago, life expectancy
in the UK was 48 for men and 56 for women.
"Living to over 150 isn't unrealistic. I'm not
planning on dying at all. You only need to
have lived through the past 30 years to
realise anything is possible," concludes
