Three Secrets of a Long Life

Scientists have discovered 3 things that predict how long you?re going to live: a low body temperature, your levels of insulin and a chemical called DHEAS, and how tough your stem cells are. The first two come from experiments in which animals are fed low calorie diets. These animals live up to 40% longer than normal and also have a lower than average body temperature, low insulin levels, and high levels of the chemical DHEAS.

Since 1958, George Roth has studied 1,500 people in the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging, where he?s analyzed their body temperatures and insulin and DHEAS levels. The men in the study who lived the longest were not on diets. "It could be genetic, it could be something else in their lifestyle apart from diet," Roth says. "If we can learn what these individuals are doing then perhaps we could help the rest of us to live longer, too."

The length of our lives may also be determined by how tough our stem cells are. Gary Van Zant, of the University of Kentucky, has found that mice that live the longest have stem cells in their bone marrow that are good at repairing DNA. As we age, our stem cells can no longer cope with the degree of cell turnover needed to keep our organs young and healthy. It might be possible to extend our lives by altering or replacing our stem cells.
