Overview

Longevity is a fascinating topic. It's a matter of health, but also of ethics. The world is already suffering from the consequences of human overpopulation. Many people wonder if science and medicine should be limited, or if they should be allowed to help us live as long as we desire to. In other words: should there be an age limit to our lives?

We mostly think about biology when considering how long we'll live, but interestingly, a lot of what allows you to live a long life has nothing to do with food. According to researchers, aging could happen mostly in our minds, depending on factors such as happiness, satisfaction, and stress levels.

In The Longevity Project, authors Howard S. Friedman and Leslie R. Martin argue so, based on the results of the world's longest-running study, the Genetic Studies of Genius.
