The Brain Can Stand 150 Years of Life

The Brain can Stand 150 Years of Life

 

                In the opinion of Prof. Peter P. Lasareff, Soviet scientist, the human mind is capable of a life ranging from 150 to 180 years in length barring, of course, disease and other degenerating in influences. Prof. Lasareff arrived at his conclusion through the study of the sensitivity of the brain. This, he finds, is zero at birth. It then rises to 20, but never again drops back to zero because death cuts short its decline. While this Russian scientist has studied human life, he has never attempted to lengthen it. He has, however, caused lower animals to live three and four times their normal span by treating them with roentgen rays.—Pathfinder.
