Life Begins at Sixty!
Real life begins after 60
Most of us will live long lives. It has to do not only with the increasing level of comfort and the development of medicine. The body itself is set to a long life, producing mutations in the genes. The old patterns of behavior at a certain age will no longer work. Residents of the developed countries have to think what they will be doing for 20, 30 or even 40 years after retirement.
A few days ago the scientific community announced a surprising fact. A group of scientists from the Netherlands deciphered the DNA of a person who managed to live to 115 years. Not only had she managed to survive, but she also retained sanity and physical strength that is much more important. As scientists say, watching her a few years before her death, in her old age the woman looked like she was at least 50 years younger. At the age of 113 she was tested for mental capacity, and her results corresponded exactly to those of a person of 65 years of age.
