An expert has a new idea on how to make us all live longer — give us a literal chill pill.
Could a chill pill extend our lives?
- The pill would “lower our body temperature, thus lowering our metabolic rate, which in turn decreases the wear and tear on our networks and allows us to live longer,” according to Big Think.
- Another way to do this might be eating less, West said. However, there hasn’t been researching to back up that idea.
Do chill pills exist?
Per Yahoo Life, there are a number of pills that can help people decompress and chill out. These don’t lower our body temperatures, but they do make us feel less stressed.
