Different systems to increase life expectancy
Every human life is unique, and aging people as well - each in its own way. Scientifically proven that aging and old age is largely dependent on the way of life that man was in the mature period of life, and do not correspond to any formulaic ideas about aging.
This applies as well to the physical and psychological aging, to a large extent they are due to the way of life in adulthood. If the middle-aged man lives a full and healthy life, it is likely that he will be in the age younger than their peers (of course, provided that the physical and mental activity).
It would be a mistake to assume that all aging and old people alike. People over age group are significantly different from each other, and over the years the differences are becoming more tangible. Therefore, it is here talk about aging and older tips can not be universal, as a way of life and the genotype of each person are very individual.
Of course, all appreciate the humor and love to laugh. But the severity of that target aging, illnesses and various everyday blunders old people out of place as condescending advice, and various restrictions based on the fact that old people - are weak, mindless and sexless creature. Such an attitude in one day can hurt and offend any of those who are now 30, 40 or 50 years, and tomorrow will be 60, 70, 80 or 90.
In contrast to the outdated traditions, superficial views, superstitions and prejudices about aging and old age, let's look at the facts and opinions based on life experiences and research findings.
Look at the effect on the human body rhythm of the industrial society of the second half of XX - beginning of XXI century. In the morning, leave the house and go to a few tens of meters to the nearest stop. Sit on a bus, tram or metro and transport passively sitting or standing. Then he goes through several tens of meters to the place of work. During the working day, most people move a little: or sedentary work, or automation and mechanization of working free from physical labor.
There are some disparities between the physical activity of men and women. Female, despite the fact that by nature has a smaller physical force, usually hastens home heavy bags. Taking care of the delivery of food to the family (which for centuries made the husband, the family breadwinner), a woman, so load the hip and knee joints. Houses woman running from the refrigerator to the plate, from the stove to the table, cook, bake, fry, washes, cleans, washes. She moves, and a man reading a newspaper while sitting in a chair, watching TV (in this case, of course, something to eat or drink) and then goes to bed. Looks like this motoring person living in the city. While there are still professions where a person uses muscle power, but they are becoming fewer. It is worth thinking about the negative consequences of technological progress. One of them - physical inactivity (lack of movement). According to the research, it refers to the major risk factors for the occurrence of diseases of civilization - in particular, such as atherosclerosis and obesity.
Mechanization and automation of production not only working, but also everyday life, of course, will increase with the development progress. Increase the pace of further research and shorten the implementation of their results. Thus, the level of motor activity of the workers will be even lower than today. Undoubtedly, the high-speed transport, methods of operation, gives an opportunity not to spend the extra physical energy, nice and comfortable. But at the same time, if a person gets used to the comfort in one area of life, it is easily and quickly moves up the habit and to other areas. With the disappearance of the activity immediately increased passivity. A physical and mental passivity for everyone, especially for a beginner to get old, unhealthy and even dangerous.
Let's face it. The human body consists of organs and systems. Each agency shall perform its natural function. The human body is designed for activity, activity. If the body for some reason is not operated, it can lead to a weakening loss of immunity. And here - only a step to diseases of individual organs and the whole organism. Negative changes affect not only the vital organs, but also the structure is not visible to the naked eye - microscopic and ultramicroscopic level.
Mental and physical activity, as well as the harmonious combination of the above components are a guarantee of good health and a smooth transition to the third phase of life. It is known that intelligence and creativity were kept fully and in old age - especially in people who have lifelong daily used their intellectual and creative potential. This is evidenced by examples of outstanding individuals - many writers, artists, composers - they created works of genius is in old age.
It is well known saying: "In a healthy body - healthy mind". Of course, a healthy and strong body has a positive effect on the psyche, but it does not mean that mental health is automatically provided to the person who physically developed. The brain, too, need to constantly train. One can not hope that by taking care of physical health, you will get a positive result in intellectual and spiritual sphere. In life, everything is much more complicated and confusing. There is a child seriously ill people, the spiritual riches that would be the envy healthy.
Today's 50-year-old man (the man in the prime of life) - this is not the venerable old man. A 50-year-old woman - not an old woman, as it was considered more recently (early XX century). Rather, the so-called female unknown age (between 30 and following) - both in appearance and in behavior reactions operability. The average life expectancy has increased mainly due to the continuous improvement of methods of medical diagnosis and treatment, as well as improving the social conditions of the population. Especially reduced infant mortality, virtually eliminated epidemic infectious diseases.
In this section of the site we will try to tell you that the person is able to do for himself, that his long life was full.
