    The brain could live/function for about 150years, it’s the other parts of our body that can’t keep up.

    I watched 3 minutes and I instantly realized how little time we actually have on this planet, life really is precious (depending on your point of view). 3 minutes of this video is making me feel like appreciating and enjoying life more and pursuing my dreams XD. Thx.

    Losing hearing at 30 plus?? Humans can’t hear above 20k…. So it just makes me wonder what else he is wrong about that I am not as well informed on

    • Enerjon

      November 13, 2023 at 4:58 pm

      He’s referring to the age at which you start to lose hearing not the frequency of sound.

    this is why medicine is the coolest profession ever. because no one knows what comes after this life, but doctors just decided to figure out how to extend the life instead and it worked and it keeps working

  23. I am Blue

    I’m old and deaf, bald and feeble minded. But I can still dig for days. One day I will just keel over in a hole and that’ll be that.

    Body parts come with an expiration date. Modern medicine is just stretching our body past that expiration date as far as we can.

    November 15, 2023 at 11:08 pm

    At the very end, when he said “I would trade in my knees to hug one of my granddaughters any day,” I almost cried and I don’t know the guy! That statement sums up aging for human kind very well!

    Some things I wish not to know and this is one of them, Id rather find it out with the experience of getting older than look up the truth ahead of time scary but, something that we all go thru.

    November 16, 2023 at 5:28 pm

    My girlfriend, who studies medicine to be an ENT doctor and has been working in the field for many years, says most of the facts are way off… the message is the right one though

    • Rae

      November 16, 2023 at 5:40 pm

      Also, for a professor of anatomy to get anatomical facts wrong is either questionable or careless editing.

  72. Rob Havock

    November 16, 2023 at 6:19 pm

    Some very important information here for younger people is that I used to be a 100-meter sprinter, probably about 12 seconds, but over time, I find it difficult to run, so I cycle and if I walk I get exercise, refined food has caused the health problems but like chicken it’s to blame as it tastes so good.

    Why do people in the comment section find it depressing it’s pretty informative and it’s better to face the truth as soon as possible rather than keep on living in denial so when it hits you it won’t be as shocking…death is inevitable sad but true

    November 18, 2023 at 1:50 pm

    30 still a younger adult imo.

    20-39 is young adult
    40-59 is middle aged
    60+ is old

    Based off the average lifespan (US) if you’ve only lived half your life at 40, 30 is young.

    Just remember, if you take good care of your body, you can slow down the aging process. Maintain good overall health, and it’ll take much longer for many of these things to occur.

    Excellent information. Humor educates. So, the good doctor sincerely believes these intricate and complex body systems developed by evolution, which he refers to over and over. Happy accidents that came together by chance? Hardly reasonable and untrue. To the contrary, they are the product of design by the grand Creator, Jehovah. It would be wise to investigate the evidence of that in the Bible, which explains his purpose and what he will do in the future. Revelation 4:11 says, “You are worthy, Jehovah our God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power, because you created all things, and because of your will they came into existence and were created.”

    I think this can be taken with a grain of salt. As others have stated, staying active, taking brain strength supplements, implementing a clean, healthy diet, good sleep habits, practicing mindfullness, etc. can be a game changer in slowing this down. Yes, all of what he says is true (to a certain extent) I see many people in the 50 and above age group that are actually stronger and more athletic than when they were young! We are here for a short time, so be grateful and embrace the journey!

    “I am forty years old now, and you know forty years is a whole lifetime; you know it is extreme old age. To live longer than forty years is bad manners, is vulgar, immoral. Who does live beyond forty? Answer that, sincerely and honestly. I will tell you who do: fools and worthless fellows. I tell all old men that to their face, all these venerable old men, all these silver-haired and reverend seniors! I tell the whole world that to its face! I have a right to say so, for I shall go on living to sixty myself. To seventy! To eighty!”
