Some people spend a small fortune in an attempt to look younger and live longer. They rub on expensive anti-aging creams, undergo painful Botox injections, or seek out cutting-edge stem cell replacement therapy — all in the name of radiant, youthful health.

While many of these treatments do provide tangible results, there’s an important anti-aging remedy that’s all but forgotten, and it needn’t cost you more than five dollars.

In fact, this affordable remedy can not only help you slow down aging, but the research also shows it can help lower blood pressure and protect your cardiovascular system.

It’s a tongue scraper.

Shocking News: Lower BMI Can Signal Higher Risk of Death

Body mass index (BMI) is praised by clinicians as the standard way to diagnose patients who are overweight or obese.

If your BMI drifts into the “overweight” zone, your doctor is quick to give advice on lifestyle changes, such as eating less and exercising more, to bring your BMI down into the healthy range.

The trouble is, using BMI as a sole indicator of being overweight ignores the sizable group of men and women who have a ‘healthy’ BMI, but also have a large waistline.

Believe it or not, such people, the evidence shows, are at even greater risk of premature death than […]

A Dose of Culture Helps You Live Longer

There’s increasing interest in the health benefits of the arts, particularly in the United Kingdom where a doctor may hand you a prescription for a visit to a museum or art gallery instead of a drug.

Social prescribing, as it’s called, is said to improve both mental and physical health, and quality of life.

What surprised me is there’s now data to show that engaging in the arts also provides a dramatic boost to life expectancy.

Various scientists have offered up a number of theories to explain why engaging with the arts could help lengthen your life. Researchers have pointed to studies suggesting […]

Epigenetic Fountain of Youth Set to Extend Life Span by up to 50 Years

The lab mouse’s organs are failing. It lies hunched and motionless, just days from death. It has progeria, a disease of accelerated aging.

But the rodent is in for a surprise. Researchers give it an age-reversal cocktail, and before long, the mouse is active, energetic and full of life.

If you’re thinking this is too good to be true, that there must be a catch, you’re right…

A few days later the mouse is dead.

Oops!

But even in the face of this setback, scientists believe the technology that gave this mouse a new lease on life—at least temporarily— will be developed and safely applied […]

What Your “Aging Pace” Says About Your Overall Health and Longevity

A friend tells me that every few years she meets up with 50 or so of her school friends and swaps stories. Sadly, she notes, there are fewer folks to talk with at each reunion, but there’s something else she finds intriguing about these get-togethers.

All of the attendees at these shindigs are basically the same age, but their appearance and health status are all over the board.

Sure, there are some who’ve clearly had “some work done,” yet that can’t fully explain how many of her peers seem to be aging so much faster than others.

It turns out that she’s not […]
