20 Myths About why do humans live so long: Busted

There has been a lot of media coverage of the “long life span” of humans. However, the research on this subject is still pretty new and only just getting started.
This is an area of research still waiting to be fully understood, but preliminary evidence suggests that the length of human life span could be due to genetic and environmental factors. In the short term, the more intelligent we are, the longer we live. This is true of most animals, but not of humans. We are also the only intelligent species that are born long and live a long time.
It’s a good question. What is it about us humans that may be responsible for our longest lifespan? The answer is still up for grabs, but the field of human health is slowly figuring that out.
But the field is still not fully settled in the same way that the medical field is. There’s a lot of good and bad research out there, and people are making great progress in figuring out the reasons we live to long. But I think the real answer is pretty simple. If we knew the biological reasons for our longevity, then we could take a reasonable guess as to why we are still alive.
It doesn’t matter if science knows why we live that long, or if people think that the biological reasons are the best possible, we still have to accept that there is a biological component to why we live that long. Our bodies evolved to be able to live longer, so our bodies should have evolved to be able to survive longer.
This is why I think we should have a bit more self-awareness. We need to be able to control when we get older (even if it’s not consciously aware of that). We need to learn how to make our bodies last longer. And we need to understand how we can keep our bodies from aging in the first place.
The human body is designed to be able to repair itself naturally. But we are also designed to be able to live longer. We don’t need to be in a constant fight with the other things life throws at us to live longer. When we are old enough we can look back and see that our old selves look more and more like the ones who live longer and healthier lives than we ever could have.
Just like humans, aging bodies are in constant fight with the other things life throws at them. The fight is always in the eyes. The body is constantly saying, “No, I really want this to be me.” The fight is in the mind. And if we get that fight wrong, we age faster than we ever could. The fight is in our hormones. This is why we can’t just “get it right” and be fine.
As we age, our bodies start to go haywire. We start to have problems with blood sugar. We start to be more susceptible to illness and have an increased risk for a range of cancers. We start to feel less and less like ourselves.
The human race has been at this for a very, very long time. The human race is what we are. But to say that we are the human race is an oversimplification at best. We are a highly intelligent species, but that does not mean that we are the only intelligent species on the planet. Our brains are smart but there are other species who have similar intelligence, and they have been around longer than us.
