Vaughn saidI hope he has another 72 years of good health. He's earned it!
technically it isnt possible for the body to live past 125 years. this is due to the fact that about 300 cells in the body are amitotic. we discussed this in our anatomy class on a huge tangent off subject.
note the oldest person in this chart was a 122 year old woman. Interesting enough Jeanne Calment smoked 96 years of her life. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_the_verified_oldest_people
and 115 for the oldest male. Stem cell research may be the only means of breaking that limitation.
back on track:
I am curious what his actual bodyfat is at that age. the aging process causes the human body to retain less water. also from the inability to be active, RMR drops. it would also be interesting to measure his RMR. (resting metabolic rate)
