It's Just An Opinion

Well it's fine there's no such thing as immortal anyways. Even if you were, the sun would burn out and expand. even if you moved to another solar system. unless you can move into another galaxy, there's another one hurtling into this one.

They even found if they knocked out the ability of mice to produce insulin (requiring a special no sugar diet too) then they lived 10x longer than normal. Is a no sugar/carb/alcohol diet possible in humans? Those Meal Replacements do exist.

You'd be dead.  Insulin is required for glucose to be used as energy by cells.  So how are these mice living without energy?

You dont need to consume glucose if you have fat and protein in your diet.

Your liver produces a small amount from them for your brain.

Carbohydrates and excess protein is converted into glucose.

If you over eat protein some of the amino acids get turned into glucose.

Thats not the mechanism though which your liver uses to create a small amount of glucose for the brain during sugar and carb starvation.

Sugar and carb starvation would kill a person because the brain cannot run of ketones. But thankfully the liver takes them both during starvation and frees up some glucose for the brain.
