Exercise, Health and the Super Bowl

"Your life becomes the thing you have decided it shall be."– Raymond Charles Barker

 Did you know the lifespan for the ancient Egyptian was 43.5 years? The lifespan in the United States in the 1900s was 47.3 years and the lifespan in 2007 was 77.9 years. There’s another statistic about the amount of money spent on health and in the US we spend more than any other country or culture. However there are 50 cultures that outlive us.
The “rule of six” is a formula to determine roughly maximum lifespan. For instance, in most mammals if you multiply the time it takes for the animal to reach neurological maturity, and then multiply that number by six.  It takes, in humans, about 20 (the brain size then begins to shrink) years for the brain to reach neurological maturity. So multiply 20x6 to get the approximate maximum human life span of 120 years. The oldest recorded lifespan for a woman was Jeanne Calment, She was French, and died in 1997 at the age of 122. The oldest recorded lifespan for men was 115.Also; more women become centenarians by an 8 to 1 margin compared to men. However, if a man becomes a centenarian he is more likely to be healthier and have fewer issues with dementia compared to women
.About 50% of 100-year-olds still live independently   although many of them have multiple medical conditions they are still mentally and emotionally healthy. Growing old and functioning relatively well is partially a genetic causation however mostly due to common lifestyle characteristics. Remember the statistic; about 70% of what happens to you in your body is a result of your decisions, your attitude, and your behavior or lifestyle characteristics.
