  • Researchers have said that theirs is the first effort to demonstrate that oxygen restriction can extend lifespan in an ageing mammal.

  • Previous reports on oxygen restriction lengthening lifespan have come from mammalian cells grown in Petri dishes, yeast, and in less complex lab animals.

  • In addition to its tranquil quality and a sense of peace, the fresh, crisp, pollutant-free mountain air could help some animals live longer.

  • Specifically, the lower oxygen content at high altitudes increases lifespan significantly in ageing mice, according to a study published.

  • Hypoxia is a condition in which the body or a region of the body is deprived of adequate oxygen supply at the tissue level.

 This can occur due to a variety of factors,

  1. Lack of oxygen in the air.

  2. Lack of oxygen in the blood. 

  3. Lack of oxygen in the tissues.
