Ученые рассказали, как оценить свои шансы дожить до 80 лет

People can count on longevity, if at the age of 70 years he kept the walking pace of 1.5 meters per second.

Japanese gerontologists have come to the conclusion that virtually 100% chance of living to 80 years, have people who are 70 years to go as vigorously as in his youth. The results of their work, the experts said at the meeting in Moscow of the Russian-Japanese open conference Course on healthy longevity in Russia, said yesterday the Russian newspaper.

Japanese scientists since 1997, studied the walking speed of people aged 60 to 80 years. Analysis of the obtained results allowed to conclude that people can count on longevity, if at the age of 70 years he kept the walking pace of 1.5 meters per second.

If in this age man in the usual walking pace was overcome in a moment more than half, then the probability that he will live another 10 years, amounted to only 15-35%. While in men this figure was less than in women.

“The pace of walking can serve as a good indicator to accurately predict the life expectancy of a particular person. The faster the person moves in a usual mode, – the longer he will live,” – said the President of the Japanese National center for geriatrics and gerontology, Dr. Hidenori Arai.

Earlier, American scientists have discovered the main cause of aging. It was also reported that found the drugs, effectively prolonging life.
