Why Do Presidents Tend to Live a Long Time?

I bet you’ve seen those photos documenting the changes that occur in presidents during their stressful tenures. After a year or two, they are already showing signs of wear and tear; wrinkles line their faces and streaks of gray start to proliferate in their hair.

This observation led Dr. Michael Roizen, of RealAge.com fame, to deduce that presidents age twice as fast as the rest of us when they’re in office. He attributed it to “unrequited stress.”

But here’s the thing: physical appearance shouldn’t be confused with accelerated aging.

Never mind the gray hairs — according to a paper1 published in the Journal […]

This Part of Your Body May be the Very Heart of the Aging Process

Inside your brain, there’s a very small section of tissue that some researchers believe is the very heart of the aging process.

They also think this tiny but crucially important area holds clues that may lead to therapies for Alzheimer’s disease and other brain function breakdowns that plague us as we get older.

Keep reading for the full story. . .

The region is called the hypothalamus. It’s been well-established that it regulates growth, development, reproduction, metabolism and appetite while affecting our daily rhythms and how we sleep. Now there’s even more: Research demonstrates that if we want to conquer aging, this just […]

Can a Transfusion of “Young” Blood Keep You Young?

New York state lost more residents in 2018 than any other state in the US, so they are certainly in need of some fresh blood. And there’s one man who intends to supply it – literally.

34-year-old Jesse Karmazin is hoping to open a clinic in New York City this year offering to reverse the aging process by infusing people with the blood of young donors – ranging in age from the teens to 25.

He said a single infusion “dramatically improves people’s appearance, their memory and their strength [and] reverses aging.” He even had the temerity to say “it comes pretty […]

The Special Health Benefits of Racket Sports

Daily exercise is essential if you want to stay healthy and live a long life. You probably knew that. But you may not know that racket sports in particular can help you live longer.

Keep reading for the full scoop. . .

A study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine1 looked at the link between six different types of exercise and the risk of early death. They found that adults who participated in racket sports lived longer than those who participated in solitary exercises such as jogging, swimming or cycling.

Researchers followed a vast group — 80,306 people, ranging in age […]

Big Changes are Already in the Works for the 100-Year-Life Society

By |2019-01-03T13:50:06+00:00January 3rd, 2019|Lifestyle|

The number of centenarians in the US has already soared by 58% in the last seven years alone. The Census Bureau projects numbers will increase seven-fold over the next four decades, to 600,000 people past the age of 100.

That’s both good news and bad news. . .

Surging health care and pension costs. A shortage of caregivers. “Dementia towns.” Huge numbers of people with nothing to do.

It’s easy to paint a grim picture of America’s aging population. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Instead, society could embrace the 100-year life. For one country, it’s a national project.

Mighty Demographic Challenge
