Scientist Lives Underwater for 100 Days and Comes Out Feeling 10 Years Younger
subjective: based on personal feelings instead of facts
A scientist may have found a surprising way to feel younger. Meet Joseph Dituri, who lived inside a small pod at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean for 100 days!
Dituri spent his days studying how the high-pressure environment could affect the human body. He says he now feels ten years younger! But it’s not all subjective feelings. Joseph is a scientist. He measured his sleep and other biomarkers. His REM increased by 60 percent. His inflammation markers and cholesterol decreased, and his muscle mass increased. Most astonishingly, he found that his body’s telomeres, the parts of our DNA that shrink as we age, actually grew by 20 percent.
He believes the unique pressure underwater could bring health benefits for everyone. He says, “Send people down here for a two-week vacation, where they get their feet scrubbed, relax and can experience the benefit of hyperbaric medicine.”
1. Her fear of dogs is subjective and has more to do with a bad experience she had as a child than any real danger.
2. Although his cake didn’t win the contest, he believes it’s the best, which is, of course, a subjective opinion.
3. Your review of the movie is subjective; not everyone might agree with you.
