These Two Common Food Nutrients Accelerate Aging

If you’ve been following the research into how to slow down aging, you’ve probably read that cutting calories and periodically fasting can help prolong your life. We’ve written about it frequently in these pages.

But not everybody wants to go hungry to live longer. There is some sentiment that good food is worth dying for. I can understand that.

And now there’s good news on that front. Studies show that a few adjustments to the foods you eat – without eating less or fasting – may produce some of the same anti-aging benefits. Here’s the good word. . .

A Cozy Drink Reduces Glaucoma Risk

If the thought of losing your vision scares you as you get older, you’re not alone. Most people fear blindness more than losing a limb, and almost as much as getting cancer.1

That’s why glaucoma is so scary.

In glaucoma, abnormally high pressure develops in the eye and damages the optic nerve. It’s one of the top causes of blindness in the United States.2

But do you know the worst part about glaucoma?

It gives no warning signs. It comes over you so gradually, you may not even notice a change in your vision until it’s done permanent damage to one or both of […]

A recent investigation into the ways in which exercise affects longevity shows that the amount of exercise you do and its intensity may not be the most important factor in helping you live longer.

Instead, in a finding that surprises me, the researchers found that your attitude toward exercise has an outsized effect on your chances of extending your life expectancy.

Here’s a full report on this weird result…

In a Stanford study, people who believed they were more active than other people lived longer than those who believed they didn’t exercise much – even when the exercise levels were, in both groups, […]

New, Fast, Non-Invasive Test May Reveal Your Biological Age

How can two people both born in the same year appear so different?

One looks half their age while the other displays many of the signs of aging. Then again, outward appearances may suggest they’re the same age, but they may have very different health-related futures and life expectancy.

In short, their chronological age may be the same but their biological ages may be quite different.

Finding a way to measure a person’s “real” age (as opposed to what the calendar says) could be far more valuable in identifying and predicting risk factors that influence health and length of life.

Now researchers from China have come […]
