New Blood Test Reveals How Long You’ll Live

By |2018-08-10T06:00:31+00:00August 9th, 2018|Natural Health|

To calculate someone’s life expectancy, scientists look for molecular changes that take place in cells. This approach determines mortality risk by focusing on a person’s rate of aging (biological age) as distinct from their chronological age.

But a novel approach has emerged that takes information from routine blood tests carried out at a doctor’s office. Proponents of the new strategy suggest these readily-available measurements can be used as a practical, accurate and easy-to-interpret “lifespan calculator.”

Unlike genetic tests, which provide information that’s engraved in stone, the blood data used to establish biological age can be modified by lifestyle changes to increase an […]

Can Some People Stop Aging Completely? “Yes,” Italian Researchers Say

By |2018-08-02T13:15:14+00:00August 2nd, 2018|Lifestyle|

When Italian researchers analyzed the health and mortality of Italian seniors, they came to a startling conclusion: As far as longevity and life expectancy goes, quite a few of the people in their study had stopped aging.

They had reached what the researchers call a “mortality plateau.”

While other seniors kept experiencing an increased risk of dying with each passing year, the risk for these non-aging folks had leveled off. Their chances of dying from one year to the next stayed the same even as they got older and older.

As a result, the researchers believe that although the oldest person on record […]

New Breakthrough May Dramatically Slow Aging

By |2018-07-26T09:10:29+00:00July 26th, 2018|Natural Health|

“We believe we’ve found the holy grail.”

That’s not the kind of statement you normally expect to hear from a well-respected scientist.

His colleague didn’t hold back either: “We may be able to take a 60-year-old’s cells and make them 40.”

That sure got my attention. Here’s the scoop. . .

The discovery by these researchers from Australia only came about because they were curious to know how a living microorganism was able to survive in a very hostile environment.

They never imagined it would develop into a method of turning back the clock of aging.

Same Protein Shared by Ancient Microbes and Modern Humans

The breakthrough came […]

Put Your Hands Together and Live Almost Four Years Longer

The late Dr. Cyril Clarke was a renowned British physician, geneticist and professor of medicine. After 1984, with the explosive increase in the number of people living beyond 100, he began to take a great interest in human longevity.

He wondered whether extended lifespans were related to the decline of religious faith and belief in the afterlife. Perhaps, he considered, loss of faith motivated people to live longer in this life.

On the other hand, many centenarians are deeply religious. So what do we find when we look at the facts? Keep reading. . .

In the US, Lynn Adler, founder of the […]

Previously Overlooked Part of the Cell May be Key to Aging

By |2018-07-12T07:19:59+00:00July 12th, 2018|Natural Health|

Researchers who examine the aging process believe they may have found the cellular structure that holds the key to aging

And their investigations indicate that size matters.

Because they’ve found evidence that when this microscopic part of the cell is relatively compact and small, your odds of living to a ripe old age take a leap. But if it gets bigger, that can signal a greater risk of dying young.

Important news for all of us.

The Cell’s Mini Protein Factory

The structure that has aging experts excited is called the nucleolus. It‘s so small, it’s contained within each cell’s nucleus, and it’s kind of […]

This Supplement Makes Blood Vessels 20 Years Younger in 6 Weeks

Declining quality and activity of mitochondria – often called the cells’ “batteries” – is associated with many age-related diseases and a wide range of processes that make us age faster.

Rejuvenating mitochondria can potentially add years to a person’s life.

To do just that, some researchers have developed a new mitochondrial antioxidant supplement, and a science journal has just published the results of the first human clinical trial to test its effectiveness. This is what they found. . .

Concentrates in the Mitochondria

A research team from the University of Colorado, Boulder first tested the supplement called MitoQ on mice in 2014.

Old mice, the […]

Move Over Apples… Singing May Be A Better Way To Keep The Doctor Away

I had the chance to catch up with my friend Nicole a couple of months ago. She had recently come back from a few days of downhill skiing in Vermont with her 14-year-old son and her 91-year-old father.

Yes, you read that right. Her 91-year-old father went with her… and he still skis.

I was surprised myself when she told me. So of course I asked her his secret. . .

Nicole told me a little about her father and how he likes to keep active.  She said one of his favorite activities is singing.  He sings weekly in his church choir, a […]

If You Want to Stay Young, be a Kidult

If you’re looking for a secret recipe to feel younger and enjoy a longer, happier life, here’s an answer that’s straightforward, painless and cheap.

All you have to do is think young, act young and indulge in nostalgia.

Maybe this sounds too good to be true, but it’s the finding of a recent survey, and it’s backed up by a research psychologist.

Make Silly Faces

For the survey, 2000 British adults were asked about the health effects of youthful behavior and the habit of indulging in nostalgia.

Three out of four believed it was important, now and again, to forget they were adults.

The respondents created […]
