According to Brazilian scientists, a tendency to longevity is manifested in people with large muscle power and now they aim to find a connection between muscle strength and different terminal illnesses. They declared during a Congress of the European society of cardiology EuroPrevent-2019.
Experts from the clinic of physiotherapy CLINIMEX in Rio de Janeiro presented the results of their research. They say that people with greater muscle strength tend to live longer.
Scientists assure that after reaching the age of 40 muscle strength of a person decreases. They conducted an experiment involving 3 878 people aged 41 to 85 years who did not do sports professionally. In the period 2001 to 2016 these men were tested for maximal muscle strength by performing the exercises “pull to the chin”.
The largest value that the participants showed after several attempts increasing the load, was set as the maximum muscular force and evaluated in relation to body weight.
According to the results, participants with the highest muscle force was above average most likely to a longer life expectancy. The weak, on the contrary, the risk of death is several times higher. Currently, the Brazilian scientists want to establish a relationship between muscle strength and certain causes of death – diseases of the cardiovascular system and cancer.
We will remind, earlier it was noted that certain species of jellyfish have unique abilities. They can turn the dying brain cells into new healthy and adults. Through this unusual mechanism, it is possible to create drugs against Parkinson’s disease.
As reported by the portal “Znayu”: scientists from the University of Buffalo claim that unnatural friendliness and fake smiles at work cause people to consume more alcohol, in contrast to their more intemperate colleagues.
Also “Znayu” wrote that a group of researchers from Singapore and Australia developed a photonic quantum-information processor that can simultaneously generate 16 probable scenarios.
