Cold Climate and Aging

by Sigma

Does temperature play a role in aging?


Explanation:

For example if all the variables for 2 persons are kept constant, except one person lives all his/her life in warm climate, and another person lives in moderately cold weather, does that impact aging?

Brown fat cells in cold weather NEW
by: Anonymous

Hi, I recently read the Harvord study about brown fat cells. When activated they supposedly get rid of the white fat cells. Therefore losing lots of weight. Some people say you can activate these cells by reducing your body temp by only 1/2 degree. That's why I looked into this topic. I wonder if people are on average a less weight where it's colder. Supposedly just eating certain foods can lower your body temp. Enough.

few things to notice
by: Anonymous

nice discussion. I believe apart from development of the region, cool(if not cold) climate have positive impact on life expectancy. Here i'll write few points
1)things gets "rotten" in warm places, may b one reason why people look younger in cold regions.(remember we put thins(perishable,so is human)in cold to extend their "life"(though are dead...LOL)).

2)same vegetation in cold region are lives longer...i.e. mosses(treat this as'grass') in tundra climate can live up to 150-200 yrs.

although I believe people gets more lazy in winters. This is for reason our ancestors used to live on stored food during extreme winters. so energy was a scarce source back then. reason why polar animals are fat(to prevent winter and use stored fat as food).

It seems to me that people in the desert live
much longer. High 80s and 90s seem common.

Human Longevity
by: batpeshopeshov@gmail.com

Human longevity and climate is a very interesting issue. It is pity that there are so few commentaries.

In short. Human cells produce heat and energy by burning fats and oxygen. This process is done in mitochondria(parts of the cells).

For all the people have same body temperature, supposedly people living in cold areas have more mitochondria to produce more heat. Of course you have to eat to gain that energy.

The mitochondria is responsible also for swallowing FREE RADICALS which contribute for aging. It sacrifices itself doing so.

So the more mitochondria the better human longevity. The northern people live longer. People exposed to hunger and hot climate during generations live shorter lives.

There are several experimental substances which defend mitochondria from the free radicals and increase human longevity.

These are Russian patents -Sculachev Ions.

Skin and Elimination
by: NewAge

You might not think of that, but our skin is the largest organ of elimination. Keeping it under clothes makes impossible the release of toxins. And the colder is the climate, the longer human stay dressed.

Climate, Temperature, and Aging
by: George Parigian Jr.

Hi Sigma,

That is an interesting question you have posed!

Several things come to mind:

1) The amount of sunlight people get in cold climates, which affects vitamin-d levels and also seasonal affective disorder

2) The amount of exercise missed when people are housebound during extreme winter weather

3) The increased aging of the skin of people who live in sunnier climates Since skin aging is part of the aging process, thus you could say that the skin of people in hot climates certainly seems to age faster than that of people who live in colder climates, however I think the determining factor is sun exposure rather than temperature.


Overall as far as average life expectancy by state or area, I don't think the actual temperature really matters all that much.

The healthiest US state is Hawaii, where the average lifespan is 80, but in Texas, which is just as hot if not hotter, it is 76.7.

Alaska has a higher average life expectancy at 77.1 than Texas, or New Mexico at 77.

Human beings are very good at compensating for the effect of their environment. There is no discernable pattern that suggests that temperatures affect life spans on average.

One aspect of environment that should be of great concern is the limited sunlight that African Americans get when living in temperate climates.

I found the health issues that seem to affect African Americans disproportionately. I then did a Goggle search on each health condition AND vitamin-d deficiency.

What I found was that each health condition that affected black people more than Caucasians was also linked with vitamin-d deficiency.
