Living Healthily To 100 Or Beyond: Is This Possible?
As its name- “long life” suggests, I’ll have a discussion with you on this topic. I hope that you’ll be patient enough to get all info stay in your brain.
Our health awareness is extremely low. Most people, particularly young generations aren’t interested to learn health knowledge as they think that they’re still energetic, younger and healthy, and thus HEALTH is not so important for them to place as their top priority in life. Only those who’re in the middle ages, elderly or the patients will they pay attention to their health as they’ve been tortured by diseases. But do you know that, according to the statistic, the death among the young generations is higher than those who’re 50 and above? You might be surprising to know that primary school children have engaged with hypertension, and by the time when they’re studying at the secondary school, they already have a problem of artery hardening. If young generations still ignore their health, the percentage of death among them will definitely increase in a surprising manner. How sad is this?
The current statistic shows that hypertension (high blood pressure) earns its “first prize”, the second goes to hyperlipidemia, while the third goes to cardiovascular disease. The mortality rate is found to be the highest in the age group of 30 to 50. The age is not the dominant factor for the mortality here, as the culprit here are “high lipid/high cholesterol” and “high blood pressure.”
We all know that there’s an international standard which indicates that longevity is equivalent to 5 to 7 times of human mature period. That means, according to the nature rule, human life expectancy should be somewhere around 100 to 175 years old. But why can’t we meet this life expectancy? The reason is that every one of us has a very poor health care knowledge. Some even don’t bother to listen to health talks or seminars as they found them boring. If our health knowledge is not raised up to its level it should be, I fear that the global mortality will increase sharply. It’s sad to learn that the death here is not due to an old age, but it’s due to the ignorance of health as most of them die at the age they shouldn’t be. That means they die of way too young or too sudden. We should take appropriate actions to curb this type of mortality before the condition is getting worst.
On average, human life expectancy is 70 and above but the statistic shows that we’re at 67.88 years old, indicating that we haven’t reached to the expected average life expectancy. Of course, they’re some brilliant stars that have broken the record. One Englishman has been in the record as he had live to 209 years old. Besides this Englishman, there’s one Romanian woman who had live up to 104 years old, and in her life, she even gave birth in her age of 92 years old. Soong May-ling (or Soong Mei-ling), a former First Lady of Republic of China, also the wife of former President Chiang Kai-shek, died peacefully at her age of 105 years old. Despite of her old age, she still played a prominent role in the politics of the Republic of China. If these people can live up to 100 or beyond, why can’t we?
According to the natural law, mammals’ life expectancy is equivalence to 5-7 times of their growth period. And for human, the last grown out tooth (approximately 20 to 25 years old) is taken to calculate human’s growth period. Due to this calculation, the shortest human’s life span should be 100 years old, and the longest should be 175 years old. The recognizable life span in human life cycle should be around 120 years old. Within a period of 120 years, human should be able to live healthily up to 90 years old. This can be achieved by any one of us as it’s scientifically proven not to be a dream. That means, when you reach 70, 80, you haven’t developed any chronic diseases. In other words, the older you get, the healthier you are. Thus, living to 100 or more is easier for you to think of.
But what’s happening now? Those who should have lived to 120 years old die at the age of 70. That means they’ve less than 50 years to live on the earth. While analyzing the latest data, surprisingly, I found that most people have health problems at their ages of 40, and by 50 they already have cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and/ or hypertension developed, and next, they disappear from the earth at the age of 60. This outcome tells me that, people nowadays have associated with diseases 50 years in advance, and thus death in advance of their actual ages is a common modern-day phenomenon. Therefore, you won’t be surprising to find them already engaged with 6 chronic diseases: hypertension, coronary heart disease, high lipid, heart failure, cancer, liver disease, coupling with diabetes, osteoporosis, AMD, Prostatic hyperplasia, Cataract, or to be more exact, their bodies have been a dumpsite for these deadly diseases. Sincerely, I feel extremely sad to look at this outcome. Hence, I urge you all not to die of ignorance. It’s a pity that many people nowadays have died of their ignorance of health.
It’s always appeared awe to me when I discovered that people in less develop countries seem to live longer. Vilcabamba in Ecuador, Hunza valley in India, and The Caucasus in Russia are home of the “Most Centenarians in the world.” In contrary, in most develop countries, people not lack of proteins as their main diets, generally has very less number of centenarian residents, and most of their life span, on average, not more than 65 years old. This is strange, right?
The healthiest countries are those whose consumption on vegetables and fruits is huge. If you don’t know how to care of your health by eating an appropriate diet, you’ll have your life shorter 5 to 6 years, and this figure will be added up every 10 years of your age. Someone claimed that the proper diet to maintain health is associated to authority, power and money. I strongly disagree to this point. We all know these three criteria are important for someone to success in life, but they aren’t determiners for a healthier life. Let me tell you why. The most powerful and authorized people can be attributed to the emperors in China during the reign of Qing Dynasty in the past. Out of 13 emperors, Tongzhi emperor died at 19, Shunzi emperor died at 23, Xianfeng emperor died at 31, Guangxu emperor died at 38, but Qianlong emperor died at 89. Of all of them, only Qianlong emperor lived longer because he knew how to care for his health. His health philosophy: exercise regularly, eating steamed cuisine, perfect combination of coarse and fine foods, travelling and eating healthily. From here we know that money is not everything, it won’t guarantee your health. The key factor here is health care. If you’ve piles of money, but don’t know how to live healthily, then you’ll have to wait for the death to knock at your door.
We often live with a feeling of invincibility – as though we’re ready for anything. However obstacles can occur in our way when we least expect them to, causing us to veer off course. How ready are we to deal with these obstacles? Critical diseases such as heart attacks, cancer, and stroke can suddenly get in the way of a fulfilling life, striking the old and young alike. Without sufficient health knowledge and health care, the medical cost involved will not only affect us, but also our beloved ones.
