Live Long

After one has attained a significant degree of wealth, there is nothing better than the joy of a long and healthy life that allows one to take advantage of it.
A new study in the journal Current Biology suggests that there is a secret to extraordinary longevity in men: castration.
The study looked at historical data from ancient Korean aristocrats and the eunuchs (castrated servants) that worked in their households, and found that the eunuchs lived, on average, 19 years longer than their fully intact counterparts.
Testosterone, while making men strong and sexually potent, appears to also cause heart complications and weakened immune responses in later life.
Though the case for longevity through castration is strong, it is expected that few men will rush to take advantage of this new information.
