If your sense of smell let you down any time over the last 18 months it was probably because you were a victim of the coronavirus.

So, being able to test this successfully would not only help track the recovery of COVID-19 patients, but also help physicians spot neurodegenerative conditions at an early stage.

Scientists from the United Kingdom say they’ve developed just such a test. What’s more, it will soon be available for at-home use.

Recently we wrote about new research suggesting that one day it may be possible for the average human to live to 120 or even 150 years of age—nearly doubling the average human lifespan in the developed world.

While these scientists say it’s only a matter of time before modern medicine has advancements to dramatically slow the aging process and allow our life spans to nearly double, other anti-aging scientists believe it’s all pie-in-the-sky.

Let’s take a look at the research that has the pessimists convinced that aging cannot be dramatically slowed and that the human life span has a limit.
