Articles on human aging studies and their positive results increase the interest of the population in aging research as people see what is in store for them. Let us understand human aging as the accumulation of damage in the body that increases the probability of death. In developed countries the average life expectancy is increasing by one to three months every year. At present the average life expectancy exceeds 82 years in many developed countries: Japan, San Marino, Andorra, etc. It is a result of complex overall improvements in living and working conditions, medical service, as well as developing knowledge of these conditions and health education. Ignoring medical evidence regarding diseases by some elements of the population is a widespread theme in the media. However, most people use some knowledge for living longer. • Knowledge about physical, chemical, psychological and social risk factors of diseases, and causes of all-cause mortality. Using positive factors. Health promotion. • Knowledge of the treatment of age-related diseases. The role of pharmaceutical knowledge capital is increasing at present. All of this knowledge is produced mainly for avoiding and tackling different diseases. It is difficult to precisely assess the role of some measure or a group of measures in living longer. Paying attention to different body sensations that inform a subject about an adverse influence on the body, e.g. discomfort and avoiding their sources also helps. Research data show that the an average life expectancy of 90 years and even more is possible using complex solutions at present. However, the percentage of expenses for knowledge produced specifically for postponing aging is insignificant. There are few results of long-term intervention studies. Knowledge production aimed at postponing aging and rejuvenation instead avoiding and tackling numerous diseases separately can be more effective and save huge amounts of money.
