New research suggests that humans have peaked and that climate change is set to make everything worse. Rapid changes will need to be made if we’re to continue moving forward and avoid a gradual decline of modern civilization.
The Peak of Humanity
Although scientific breakthroughs in nutrition as well as curing and treating disease have rapidly expanded our lifespan in recent history, a recent study suggests that humans have peaked in height, lifespan, and physical performance.
Professor Jean-Francois Toussaint from Paris Descartes University, a scientist on the study published in Frontiers in Physiology, stated that “These traits no longer increase, despite further continuous nutritional, medical and scientific progress. This suggests that modern societies have allowed our species to reach its limits. We are the first generation to become aware of this.”
