Bicyclers (1)

Cambridge University geneticist Aubrey de Grey has famously stated, “The first person to live to be 1,000 years old is certainly alive today …whether they realize it or not, barring accidents and suicide, most people now 40 years or younger can expect to live for centuries.”

"It's a repair and maintenance approach to extending the functional life span of a human body. It's just like maintaining the functional life span of a classic car, or a house. We know -- because people do it -- that there is no limit to how long you can do that. Once you have a sufficiently comprehensive panel of interventions to get rid of damage and maintain these things, then, they can last indefinitely. The only reason we don't see that in the human body now is that the panel of interventions we have available to us today is not sufficiently comprehensive."

Lifestyle or Genes? Health Secrets of a 114-Year Old Man -A Galaxy Classic

Mountain-biking Research on the bone health of one of the oldest persons in the world raises the question of which has the most effect on the human lifespan: genetics or a healthy lifestyle, or some combination of the two?

Research reveals that there were no genetic modifications which could have contributed to the longevity of a 114-year old Spaniard. The research team, directed by Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona professor Adolfo Díez Pérez, pointed out a healthy lifestyle, a Mediterranean diet, a temperate climate and daily cycling until the age of 102 as the reasons for his excellent health.

"Just Do It!" New Metrics Programs to Track Your Summer Workouts

895617_f520 Machines have now demonstrated their ability to utterly dominate our illogical human behavior, and luckily for fans of flesh it wasn't via terrible Terminators or scheming Cylons.  Instead, simple machines and numbers have a hold over humanity where their aim ISN'T extermination- it's "Get some exercise and live longer!"

New services like the Nike+ accelerometer and Wii Fit have demonstrated incredible effects on enjoyers by bridging a tiny disconnect in the human brain.  You can understand on every level, from your guilt-stricken brain to your cholesterol-clogged coronary arteries, that exercise is good for you and still do nothing - but once there's an impartial number blinking on the screen, many will do anything to nudge that number higher (doing little things like "getting fit" and "becoming healthier" as side effects.)
