longevity : The best way to prolong life
People’s longevity is hereditary
The result of many years of research in the UK, proves that the longevity of parents is directly related to the longevity of children and even their health.
If you take care for your aging parents, your chances of surviving a few years longer will be guaranteed.
A study of 186,000 people between the ages of 53 and 77 in the UK found that children who neglected their elderly may, in addition to being short-lived, also develop cancer and heart disease, which can lead to up to 33 years. Strengthens the percentage.
Recent research has shown that children of long-lived parents die of heart disease less than others in their 70s.
Researchers at the University of Exeter School of Medicine found that each participant whose parents lived beyond the age of 70 was 20 percent less likely to die of heart disease.
According to the study, children of long-lived parents had lower rates of vascular disease, heart failure, stroke, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
“Although people with long-lived parents are more likely to live longer themselves, there are many ways for people with a shorter family history to improve their health,” the researchers said.
In this study, researchers tracked the status of more than 186,000 British people aged 55 to 73. Their parents had all died. These people were monitored between 2006 and 2010, and about 4,700 of them died over a period of 8 years.
The researchers found that even considering their education, age, weight and physical activity, there was a link between their heart health and the longevity of their parents.
Researchers also suggest that if parents reach their 80s or 90s, their children should still be concerned about their health, or that their parents’ short lives should not cause them to become frustrated.
Rather, it is necessary for children to reduce their risk of developing vascular disease by making a firm decision to stay healthy.
