Recently, Harvard researchers examined a Tibetan monk named Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche who teaches meditation at a monastery. When researchers scanned his brain, they discovered a wonderful surprise.

Despite being 41 years old, Mr. Rinpoche possessed a brain that’s almost a decade younger. Researchers found that his gray matter, when compared to another man the same age, is more like that of a 33-year-old.1

How is this possible? Recent studies suggest that mindfulness practices such as meditation can reshape your cellular chemistry in measurable ways, which can offset symptoms of aging within your brain and your body.

Researchers at West Virginia University, in coordination […]

Some anti-aging scientists consider the slowing down and eventual death of cells to be an unavoidable consequence of the aging process.

But other anti-aging scientists believe they’re on track to uncover new ways to deal with aging cells, sometimes called “zombie” cells, that include everything from getting rid of them to rejuvenating them.

What they’re discovering could one day help you slow the aging process and feel younger and healthier through middle age and beyond.

A large portion of the dust in your home, and other places for that matter, is made up of dead skin cells. But this is hardly surprising, since […]

The Anti-Aging Potential of Parasitic Worms

When it comes to finding the secret of eternal youth, scientists are willing to go the extra mile.

Recently they experimented with poop, transplanting fecal matter into mice — which they found lengthened their life by 15 percent.

Now, they’ve turned their attention to another unappealing idea, parasitic worms. What they’re finding could unlock new treatments that turn back time for the human body.

If you think parasitic worms are an odd choice for anti-aging researchers, consider that in developing countries, worms and parasites – also known as helminths – have been used for centuries to offer protection against disease.

Today, in those countries […]

If you’ve gained a little bit of weight during the coronavirus pandemic then you might be fed up with the constant nagging from medical authorities—or your spouse— to lose the pounds.

You’ll want to keep reading because a new study suggests those extra pounds might actually be good for you. In fact, the research shows that you’ll live longer carrying a little extra weight than people of normal weight.

It’s common knowledge that being overweight, especially being obese, increases your risk of health problems like cardiovascular disease and increases your risk of death.

Later in life, however, it’s a different story.

Carrying Extra Weight […]
