Opinion polls show that Americans spare no effort to prevent aging caused by blood masks, caffeine gels and more sex
A new poll shows that Americans are willing to go to the end of the earth to slow down aging because some people turn to blood masks, while others increase their sex lives.
Other so-called anti-aging techniques that people take include using caffeine gel as a self-tanning agent and soaking themselves in flour and vinegar.
A study of 2,000 respondents found that more than half of the respondents (54%) had researched ways to stay young on the Internet.
Interviewees were also asked to choose from a range of treatments to help delay aging, indicating that some people are willing to agree to completely fictitious treatments.
When asked to determine the real anti-aging program, people chose “xenon” injection (17%), “stratum filler” (17%), and even the real but suspicious blood transfusion in the TV show “Silicon Valley” (14%) ).
The study conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Tru Niagen also showed that people are equally vulnerable to being deceived when it comes to nutrition myths.
One-fifth of people believe that if something is considered “healthy”, then it must taste bad, and more than one-third believe that if food is green, then it must be good for you?? benefit.
A quarter of respondents still fall into the general misunderstanding that “carbohydrates are bad for you”.
More than half of people believe that if they eat something healthy later in the day, they can cancel the fast food they ate before.
At the same time, 51% of people think they can eliminate the effects of bad diet by exercising later in the day.
Dr. Alyssa Dweck, medical consultant at Tru Niagen, said: “With so much information that needs to be screened online, it is often difficult to distinguish fact from fiction.”
“This applies especially to health; misinformation can easily become mainstream.
“If this sounds too good to be true, it might be so.”
Fortunately, seven in ten (74%) people would rather accept their age than force them to look or behave younger than they really are.
