the bible states that in the centuries after the great flood the human lifespan quickly diminished from 850-950 years old to a modern limit of 120. gods own word states it.(or at least the dudes who wrote it down) something fundamental happened in human biology once the earths cycles got changed and conditions drastically changed after the destruction of the flood. something within our biology changed as well that placed that biological limit on our natural lifespans. we must have some connection to our environment that no one has yet discovered or even thought of yet as I doubt the change in human biology that changed after the earth itself changed was way more than just a random coincidence. . there MUST be some connection that our biology has to the status of the planet that we don't see yet. no human according to the bible in modern times can live beyond 120. im not sure if that means to the minute or if that means to the minute of 120 plus 364 days 23hrs and 59 minutes and 59 seconds, but that is the biological limit the bible says we are currently bound by. what was different in our biology now compared to pre-flood times? what changed? THAT is the real answer to what our limit is for life. these bodies only go to 120 at best, for the select few luckiest of us.
Of course some mutations are harmless, that is what evolution is all about! In fact if this woman passed this mutation on to her kids then that might very well kick off evolution to naturally make human lifespans longer.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
