A multi-millionaire tech guru has revealed that he is determined to live until he is 180 years old while working to train his body for the task.
Dave Asprey, 45, launched Bulletproof Coffee for the first time in 2013 and became known as a lifestyle guru for his innovative and bizarre tips to extend his life beyond what anyone has known to live.
The American tech guru and entrepreneur, who currently lives with his wife in Canada, explained why he wanted to live until he was 180 and how he wanted to reach the goal or try & # 39; die & # 39 ;.
Building his fortune: Dave Asprey, 45, launched Bulletproof Coffee in 2013 as a wellness hack for the first time. The coffee consists of combining the mixture with butter and coconut oil
Mission: The money from Bulletproof Coffee has helped Asprey investigate other health hacks. He wants to survive until he is 180 years old
& # 39; I don't believe it's science fiction, & # 39; Asprey said BBC news. & # 39; Someone has to do it and I am willing to die. & # 39;
Asprey calls himself & # 39; the first professional biohacker in the world & # 39; while working on improving his health through his biology.
Techniques for hacking his & # 39; hacking & # 39 ;, being a structured diet, having parts of his bone marrow removed and then having the stem cells injected back into his body and using infrared lighting for his skin.
Asprey revealed that he has spent an estimated $ 1 million on techniques and hacks to improve the overall functioning of his body & # 39 ;.
He has been able to afford all the different hacks with the help of his five published books and the Bulletproof Coffee brand – which also claims to help the personal and mental health of consumers when consumed.
Bulletproof Coffee means that the consumer has to buy black coffee, butter and coconut oil to mix to get the full effect of the drink.
His brand has also grown into nutritional supplements that people can buy to reportedly improve their physical health.
The brand has found its own wellness-oriented people, including actress Shailene Woodley and busy Philipps.
In 2016, Whole Foods agreed to sell the product in stores.
This helped Asprey & # 39; s wealth launch, so that he could also explore health and mental practices to extend his age on his own dime.
Targeted: he will have his bone marrow removed and lie under infrared lights to reach the age goal of 180 years
& # 39; I don't think it's science fiction & # 39 ;, Asprey told BBC News. & # 39; Someone has to do it and I am willing to die. & # 39;
In addition to removing his bone marrow every six months, Asprey also participates in standing in a cryotherapy room with liquid nitrogen to help cool his body.
The cryotherapy room is often used by athletes and active people who are looking for a quick way to relieve muscle stress or swelling. But Asprey believes the room can also extend his life.
He will also attach electrodes to his head to promote mental functioning in his brain.
His diet, which is called the Bulletproof diet, then includes the consumption of high-fat, low-protein, low-carbohydrate foods.
Asprey claimed that since he drank coffee and changed his diet, he gained 20 IQ points and improved his cognitive functions.
The combination of diet and health hacks works together for Asprey to potentially turn 180, but critics are still not convinced.
He has previously been quoted for promoting health and wellness crazes without scientific substantiation.
But Asprey is not the first multi-millionaire tech guru who tries to extend his life with the help of other technology. Amazon's founder, Jeff Bezos, has pumped a significant amount of money into the industry to slow down or stop the aging process.
PayPal founder Peter Thiel has also expressed an interest in stopping the aging process by providing companies with technical companies with similar missions.
These tech gurus could transform Silicon Valley to focus more on anti-aging technology.
WHAT IS BIOHACKING?
Biohackers, or grinders, are people who hack their own bodies with do-it-yourself devices.
They practice body change in an effort to expand and improve human capabilities.
They usually turn to experts in the field of body change, such as piercing artists to perform the implant procedures – but many also do it themselves.
One of the first biohackers was Kevin Warwick, an engineer and vice-chancellor at Coventry University, who had an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chip implanted in his arm, allowing him to control devices such as lights by simply snapping his fingers .
Professor Kevin Warwick undertook a groundbreaking experiment with an implanted computer chip in his arm. Professor Warwick became the first human cyborg to implant a computer chip in his arm to operate machines with signals from his brain
A Utah-based biohacker named Rich Lee has six implants; one in each ear that serves as a headset, two magnets in two different fingertips for feeling magnetic fields, an NFC chip (Near Field Communication) in his hand for controlling devices and a bio-thermal chip in his forearm for monitor the temperature.
The first implant was a finger magnet, which he received because & # 39; the thought of being able to feel an invisible force and to get a new feeling was too intriguing to leave it & # 39 ;.
He explains that he had implants in his shins to see how well they would protect his bones from shocks.
Although a few implants were performed themselves, most were performed by experts in the field of body change, such as piercing artists.
Rich Lee gets an implant in his hand. He usually asks body modification artists to perform the procedures for him, but he has done a few about himself when he thinks the risk is extremely limited
