    Life Spanthis website tested it on rats, and after posting this in the biology section, people said its a crackpot website, that the author got his phd illigally( or something)

    SO, ARE THERE any REAL, LEGITIMATE tests done before to test about the atmospheric oxygen level effect on human lifespan?

    IF YES, ILL BE TRYING THIS
    The plan to live till ~800 years old.

    Why does this topic keep popping up?

    You aren't going to live to 800.

    No. first of all, its a whole new qn. on its own.

    note the main thing im asking is
    SO, ARE THERE any REAL, LEGITIMATE tests done before to test about the atmospheric oxygen level effect on human lifespan?
    im asking about non crackpot tests that have completed, real tests that are
    about the atmospheric oxygen level effect on human lifespan?


    and yes, i may live up to 800 if i finish this research and got the answers i want lolz.....

    and your Display Pic is creeeeeeepyyy!!!!



    NOTE: i put this as a new question because i realized this john ginstein is a crack pot guy, and i should not read about his research!

    You could always stick a sealed bag over your head and see if oxygen ratios effect your lifespan.

    If you Google something and the entire first page is full of crackpot websites trying to sell you something, chances are good that it isn't real science.

    Unless of course it's aesthetics, I always get some sort of ridiculous make-up results for that.

    I think that any "science" site that quotes the bible as a source can be disregarded.

    And scum like this that promote cancer treatments deserve to be hung by one foot from a lamppost while people throw rocks at him.

    But aren't there any government-legitimate(really done) tests that concludes about the affect of atmospheric oxygen level's effect on mammal's lifespan?

    hello... i know quoting from the bible would crack-pot-it, but im asking for real tests, if its not done, who could i suggest it to to be done x3

    A quick search suggest that the great majority of websites that mention such things are creationists or similar crackpots.

    You might find something here: low oxygen partial pressure longevity animals - Google Scholar

    I suspect that abnormally high or low oxygen levels would both be deleterious (we have, after all, evolved to survive in the current atmosphere).

    NO NO NO !!!!!

    (T^T)

    i wanted to live to 800, and wouldnt it be at all possible to adapt to live in that oxygen pressure in maybe, a decade?

    now i feel sad

    If you are young (I'm guessing you are) then maybe by the time you are my age, medical and other advances may have extended human lifespan significantly. Which means you may live long enough to see further advances which will help you live longer ... and so on.
    Some optimistic people think that at some point, the advances in life extension will happen faster than people age. I'm sceptical.

    Eat a healthy (normal, mixed) diet. Get a bit of exercise. Don't smoke. Don't drink too much. That's about the best you can do.

    low oxygen partial pressure longevity animals - Google Scholarnope, i don't see anything about testing on animals at all the entire search.
    the closest i got was oxygen toxicity.

    Ethnic groups that live at very high altitudes have developed physical adaptations to help them cope with lower oxygen levels. You could research that.

    asking me to search for people living in moutians. but that would be different, as high areas have both 1) low air concentration 2) low atmospheric pressure

    but i wanted to know lifespan's propotional to just 1) low air concentration 2) normal atmospheric pressure.

    Effects of oxygen on protein c... [J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci. 1998] - PubMed - NCBImay i ask is this a crackpot? o.o
    rates of aging were enhanced by oxygen in a concentration-dependent fashion
    perhaps
    rates of aging were suppressed by oxygen in a dilution-dependent fashion
