Is Plant Protein the Fountain of Youth?

Diets high in protein, particularly plant protein, have been linked to lower risks of developing diabetes, heart disease and stroke. However, regular consumption of protein-rich red meat and high intake of animal proteins has been linked to several health problems.1

Despite the research, there hasn’t been a definitive answer on which protein is better for longevity. That’s why I was intrigued by a massive new research review by Harvard scientists that finds a correlation between longevity and certain kinds of protein.

Let’s dig into these interesting new findings.

In what is the largest analysis to date on protein and mortality rates, researchers from […]

How to Grow Younger with the Right Attitude

When researchers investigated why some folks age better and stay healthier longer than others, they were surprised to find that one powerful factor in their favor can be simple: attitude.

The evidence from these studies shows that it’s vital to work on developing an anti-aging attitude if you want to live the best, longest life possible. Fortunately, adopting the right attitude is easy when you have the right tools.

So, what is this fountain-of-youth frame-of-mind that researchers have uncovered?

It’s simply maintaining a healthy independence and sense of control over your life.

Researchers at North Carolina State University have shown that older adults feel […]

Trust Me – Your Attitude to Others Will Help You Live Longer

It’s sometimes called the ‘glue’ that binds societies together. And yet trust has been declining across the U.S. since the 1960s.

You could say our trust in others has gone from bad to worse with the COVID-19 pandemic. Mask wearing, social distancing and isolation are tantamount to saying, “Keep away, I don’t trust you.”

And yet trust is not only a core feature of a modern civilization, the latest research strongly links your ability to trust to your life expectancy.

Trust Adds Ten Months to Life

It seems surprising to suggest that the trust you put in others predicts how long you’re likely to […]

Rejuvenating “Old” Blood Reverses Aging

Over a century ago, early doctors performed experiments joining two living organisms together surgically so they share the same blood supply. Yes, it sounds Frankenstein-esque, and these experiments did fall out of favor for a time, but have recently been revived for research into the subject of aging.

The procedure is called parabiosis, which is Latin for “living beside.” We’ve written about it before, and in fact there was a lot of buzz about it several years ago. Some doctors enthused that it could lead to a fountain of youth.

Parabiosis-related therapies do not seem to be very popular at the moment, […]
