Have you ever wondered if oxygen has been slowly killing every human since birth? Well, I have some evidence here that will really make you question life.
There is a type of jellyfish, called the Immortal Jellyfish. These jellyfish are actually immortal and never die. The tissue of Immortal Jellyfish barley needs any oxygen and diffuses oxygen easily too. Another animal, whales, can hold their breath for extremely long periods of time. Bowhead whales can hold their breath for up to 40-60 minutes and possibly more. The Bowhead Whale can live up to 200 years, 100 years longer than the maximum human lifespan. It has also been scientifically proven that the less you breathe per minute, the longer you live.
Pure oxygen is also very poisonous. Breathing in pure oxygen would damage your cells and cause death. Another fact is that, before we are born, we don’t breath oxygen. We inhale and exhale amniotic fluid, which is a liquid. Doesn’t it seem weird to you though? The moment we are born, we start to age, and if you take less breaths of air, you live longer. Imagine if it wasn’t necessary for humans to breathe oxygen. Could we live forever too?
