Found a simple way to determine an approximate expectancy. It helps to assess the level of physical activity and the current age of a person. These settings are sufficient, scientists say. This method does not require expensive tests for determining the length of telomeres.
In most of the experiments used a genetic method of determining the degree of deterioration of the whole organism. The shorter the telomeres at the ends of chromosomes, the closer a living organism to death. However, according to the latest data, the method is not so accurate.
In the case of man enough to know his level of physical activity. The more we move, the more will live, say the scientists. It is in constant activity the secret of longevity.
