The aging process probably cannot be stopped. Biological factors prevent people from trying to slow down the rate of aging.
This follows from a new study published in a scientific journal Nature Communications, writes The Guardian.
The research, in which an international team of scientists from 14 countries, including experts from Oxford University, collaborated, sought to test the hypothesis that species have a relatively constant rate of aging since they reached adulthood.Read also Data on coronavirus samples from the beginning of the pandemic were deleted from the database
“Our findings support the theory that, rather than as a result of delaying death, many people are living much longer today due to reduced mortality at a younger age,” said José Manuel Aburto of the Leverhulme Center for Demographic Science (LCDS) at Oxford.
The researchers analyzed and compared data on the births and deaths of humans and other primates that they collected on different continents at different time periods. They found that the general pattern of mortality was the same for everyone. “This suggests that longevity is driven by biological rather than environmental factors,” Aburto added.
According to the researchers, these researched statistics confirmed that individuals live longer due to improving living conditions and health care, which leads to an increase in longevity in the entire population. Nevertheless, with increasing age, a sharp increase in mortality is clearly seen in all species.Read also In China, scientists have found fossil remains of a rhinoceros taller than a giraffe
All the data sets examined by the research team revealed the same general pattern of mortality: in childhood, the high risk of death, which decreases rapidly during adolescence, remains low until early adulthood and then rises steadily with increasing age.
“More and more people are living much longer today. However, the trajectory to death in old age has not changed, “added Aburto. According to him, a new study published last week suggests that biological factors cannot surpass even the current advances in medicine.
