Scientists discover 3 Meals that can help you live longer.
Whether you are a religious person, an Atheist, Philosopher or a futurist, you must have probably imagined a possibility of living forever.
Qin shun Huang, Emperor of the Qin dynasty and Diane de Poitiers, a prominent courtier of King Francis both went to great lengths to acquire immortality. History has it that they ended up paying with their lives.
Truth is that:
The quest for immortality never ends. Humans will always be on the lookout for ways to avoid ever having to experience death.
We yearn for Nano technologies which are able to recreate damaged cells, we even commit to various spiritual and religious practices all in the name of seeking immortality.
But Deep Inside:
We know it’s Impossible. Dying is an inevitable part of life. There is no possibility that humans can biologically live forever.
Joanna Masel, a professor in the University of Arizona said: “Ageing is mathematically inevitable,” . Masel’s research suggests that if we try to solve the problem of ageing, other problems become worse.
What If – For Instance:
We removed all possible causes of death apart from Natural aging of cells, research proves that we could enjoy a lifetime of 125years!!
That’s cool Right?
This basically means that we can try to live longer, rather than dream of living forever. We can change our lifestyle, update our survival instincts, and most importantly improve our Eating habits.

So today, am going to share with you three healthy foods that have been scientifically proven to increase the life-span of humans and to be honest, it’s much more cheaper than Qin’s or Diane’s Elixir of life.
