New study says humans cannot slow the process of aging | TheHill – The Hill

A new study suggests that stopping or even reversing the aging process is impossible.

In a collaborative effort from scientists worldwide, including experts from the University of Oxford, it was concluded that aging is inevitable due to biological constraints, The Guardian reported.

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, Jos Manuel Aburto, Oxfords Newton International Fellow, said.

Aburto was part of the Leverhulme Centre for Demographic Science project that analyzed age-specific birth and death data spanning centuries and continents.

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."

The statistics confirmed, individuals live longer as health and living conditions improve which leads to increasing longevity across an entire population. Nevertheless, a steep rise in death rates, as years advance into old age, is clear to see in all species," he added.

For some, the news means one will never regain his or her youthfulness again. For others, whether it is a government, business, institute or a group of investors, the $110-billion anti-aging industry is a lost cause,even thoughsome estimates say it will be worth $610 billion by 2025.

In perspective, in the U.K., there are at least 260 companies, 250 investors, 10 nonprofits and 10 research labs dedicated to finding "eternal youth," accompanied by decades of academic research and advanced technology.

As The Guardian previously reported, the U.K. has prioritizedartificial intelligencetech to help doctors diagnose medical conditions more effectively to allow people to influence their lifespans.
