The average life expectancy for men and women across the globe is around 70 years, but one doctor in the U.K. thinks he can more than double it. That's right. This doctor is planning on living for 15 decades, and he's got a solid plan in place to help him achieve his goal.
Dr. Alex Zhavoronkov thinks that advances in medicine and the use of antibiotics will help people live longer than ever. To prove it, he's focused his life on achieving the unthinkable age of 150.
He takes 100 different drugs and supplements each day, exercises regularly, goes for frequent checkups and monitors his own blood biochemistry and cell counts. He also vaccinates as soon as vaccines become available and claims to have ‘suppressed cravings’ for marriage, children and material assets to concentrate on anti-aging research.
Dr. Zhavoronkov, director of the UK-based Biogerontology Research Foundation think-tank, says he doesn't think he's the only one who can live well past 100. In fact, he has 10 tips to help anyone live longer.
