For ages, human civilization has been fascinated with eternal youth. Billions of dollars go into studying and propagating “eternal youth” every year.
The global anti-aging market was valued at $194.4 billion in 2020. It is estimated to reach $422.8 Billion by 2030.
But the prospect of halting or slowing down the body’s aging processes are still far fetched
Despite what many science fiction might lead you to believe but nothing can stop time. Aging is a natural process, and you can’t put a stop to it.
Scientists have debunked the anti-aging buzzword using the power of science
A joint study conducted by scientists from 14 different countries, including experts from the University of Oxford, has suggested that stopping or even reversing the aging process is impossible. They concluded that aging is inevitable due to biological constraints.
“Our findings support the theory that, rather than slowing down death, more people are living much longer due to a reduction in mortality at younger ages,” José Manuel Aburto, Oxford’s Newton International Fellow, said.
Aburto was part of the Leverhulme Centre for Demographic Science project that analyzed age-specific birth and death data.
“We compared birth and death data from humans and non-human primates and found this general pattern of mortality was the same in all of them,” Aburto said. “This suggests that biological, rather than environmental factors, ultimately control longevity.”
