He is versed in pinning down fraudsters within a short time.
A super-centenarian is a person older than the oldest person "of record". Ben Abba, US American security consultant, remote reviewer, longevity researcher, author
Since embarking into his longevity research Abba has met three of 25 super-centenarians in person, the oldest one frequently, who he calls "a reluctant guru". In 2009 Abba decided to share his findings via web radio interviews and books (to come; revised publishing date of the first one is summer 2010) declaring:
It would be a crime against humanity not to present it, regardless if it can be proven or not.
Detective Ben Abba has sought out and located and even interviewed super-centenarians:
[...] It is not my purpose in life to prove, undeniably, that immortals do live among us. This is why I was not going to even bother to tell anyone about the immortal that I found. However, as I continued to research this remarkable man and heard his stories, it became very clear to me that I had to tell the world that I found such a man and present his stories; even if I cannot offer scientific evidence that this man is older than 150 years.

Compelling evidence that male sex hormone reduces male lifespan
Extraordinary 80-year study has led to some unexpected discoveries about long life.
Scientist Wanda Ruth Lunsford [age 26] put an old rat and a young rat to sleep and tied their skin together. The rats' blood supplies joined, and after several weeks the old rat had new neurons growing in its brain, a stronger heartbeat, bigger muscles, and brown hair instead of gray hair. Henceforth, Lunsford believed young blood could scientifically reverse the aging process.

Die Ergebnisse der Nonnenstudie, einer Längsschnittstudie (Longitudinalstudie) über das Altern und die Faktoren der Alzheimer-Krankheit bei Frauen in den Vereinigten Staaten beinhaltete alljährliche Demenztests an 678 katholischen Nonnen (im Alter von 75-106). Der Studienleiter und Epidemiologe David Snowdon (*1952) stellte fest, dass kaum eine untersuchte Nonne dement war, wiewohl deren Gehirngewebe teilweise stark abgebaut war. Den Gehirnen der Nonnen ist es gelungen, den naturgegebenen Abbau durch neuroplastische Kompensation (neue neuronale Verbindungen) auszugleichen.
