History of "Reventropy Associates"

How Reventropy Associates got Started

In the 1970s, Tom Samaras, a configuration management systems engineer, applied the Second Law of Thermodynamics to the aging process. This well-established theory indicates that systems deteriorate faster with increasing body mass and energy intake. Tom interpreted this theory to meaning that increasing human body size and energy intake promoter faster cellular and organ deteriorating which led to accelerated aging. His hypothesis led to the collection of height and weight data on humans to determine whether increased height and weight led to reduced longevity. Over the years, he and his associates evaluated a variety of parameters related to human body size.

Note: The term “Reventropy” was created by Samaras from the words “Reversing Enropy” by shortening the word Reversing to Rev and combining it with entropy.
