Just for fun we’ve compiled a table of animals breathing rate / life span. Not a scientific evidence, but enough to see the connection! Mole and Shrew are “relatives”, as well as House mouse and Bat, but Mole and Bat live in lower oxygen/higher CO2 environment. Their lifespan is times greater than that of above-the-ground “relatives”.
Happy New Year from the Buteyko Clinic!
Breathe less – live healthier and longer!
|Animal||Breathing rate, breaths/min||Life span, years|
|Elephant||4-5 (lying down)||70|
|Bat||<Caves>||Up to 40|
