UK Doctor Takes 100 Pills A Day To Live To 150 Years Old

A Doctor in the United Kingdom takes upwards of 100 pills per day in an effort to live to be 150 years old.  

Dr. Alex Zhavoronkov, an anti-aging expert who uses both drugs and vitamins, believes it is possible and wants to prove that humans can live to 150 years or more.

To test his theory he has committed himself to living a life that should give him the best chance of living to a ripe old age.

According to AOL:

As part of his research, Dr. Alex Zhavoronkov says he takes 100 pills a day which includes both drugs and supplements, but it’s not all about the medication. He also keeps up with getting any new vaccinations and monitors his cell counts and blood biochemistry.

However, the most important part of his practice may be that he maintains the belief that living to that age is possible.


According to Zhavoronkov, one of the biggest longevity hurdles people face is psychological in nature.

He says, “People are evolved to accept their certain decline and demise…and events like child birth or retirement trigger many processes that are very difficult to reverse.”

He points out that people are already living longer today than ever, and promising developments in pharmacology and regenerative medicine will likely further extend life expectancies.
