I’m not a doctor. A fact which will very quickly become apparent. Have you ever wondered why we don’t live forever? Evolutionary biologists, will be talking about cellular competition. Geneticists, will talk of mutations. Pretty much everyone has an answer.
Forget all of that. The real reason is that as we age, five things happen:
1/ Our ears continue to grow.
2/ Our noses continue to grow.
3/ We shrink in height.
4/ Many of us put on weight, (especially around the middle.)
5/ We often lose teeth, (unless we get them capped. In which case they aren’t our teeth anyway.)
The result of all this, if we got too old? We would all look like characters from Lord of The Rings.
That’s the real reason we don’t live forever.
