Modern life really does kill after a remote tribe living deep in the Amazon were found to have the healthiest arteries ever studied.
A new study estimates that an 80-year-old from the Tsimane has the same vascular age as an American in their mid-fifties.
Heart rate, blood pressure , cholesterol, and blood glucose were also much lower, probably as a result of the tribe's lifestyle, according to the researchers.
The indigenous Tsimane people, who live in the Bolivian Amazon, have the lowest reported levels of vascular ageing for any population.
Hardening of the arteries, known as coronary atherosclerosis, which leads to coronary heart disease and angina is FIVE TIMES less common than in the US, according to the research published in The Lancet.http://www.mirror.co.uk/science/proof-modern-life-really-kill-10047382
