The famous 19th century artist Paul Cézanne, said, “The day is coming when a single carrot, freshly observed, will set off a revolution.”

I don’t suppose the revolution he was thinking of concerned the extension of human lifespan. Nevertheless, modern scientists have discovered that carrots, and other plants that contain pigments called carotenoids, might be able to extend our lives.

Carotenoids encompass a huge family of colorful pigments that are predominantly found in fruits and vegetables. Carotenoids include alpha and beta carotene, lycopene, lutein, zeaxanthin, and beta-cryptoxanthin.

Some carotenoids convert to vitamin A in the body, and they also have powerful free radical-quenching […]

A cancer patient’s ordeal doesn’t end with an all-clear from the oncologist. In fact, even if they’re sent home with the wonderful news that they’re cancer free, cancer survivors are likely to face long-term health issues. Especially if they opted for conventional cancer treatments.

Many of these health issues may be well-known to you, but another recent health issue has emerged. I’m talking about how cancer affects the way you age as well as what you can do about it.

There are 17 million cancer survivors in the U.S.; a number that’s expected to grow to 22 million by 2030.

This is welcome […]

Fountain of Youth Protein Reverses Aging

By |2021-12-16T10:43:49-05:00December 16th, 2021|Natural Health|

A protein has shown so much potential to reverse aging that it’s been named NANOG, a name derived from Tír na nÓg, a place in Irish folklore renowned for everlasting youth, beauty, health, abundance, and joy.

The name of this so-called Fountain of Youth protein is well deserved because it’s been shown to turn back the clock—at least at a cellular level, where aging begins.

These new findings could one day result in new treatments to cure age-related diseases, and perhaps even reverse aspects of human aging itself.

NANOG is so powerful because it affects adult stem cells. Adult stem cells are non-specialized […]

In 1965, four percent of the U.S. population was diagnosed with a chronic disease. Today, the figure is a staggering sixty percent.

While doctors can debate the reasons behind this increase until kingdom come, one thing they can agree on is that we need to reverse this dangerous upward trend in illness.

Some researchers say they’ve developed a calculator that can help.

Researchers launched the world’s first algorithm that predicts healthspan – the number of years spent in good health – last October.

It’s called the Vitality Health Futures calculator. It was developed in collaboration between the health insurer Vitality, and the research institute […]

Shrinking With Age Can Double Your Risk of Premature Death

By |2021-12-02T12:09:42-05:00December 2nd, 2021|Natural Health|

Height loss is considered a normal part of aging; nothing to be concerned about. But a rapid decline in stature is certainly not normal. In fact, it’s been shown to increase your risk of death.

Even so, height loss is still a surprisingly neglected medical issue. A new study is aiming to change that…

Adult height remains stable up to the age of 50, but then starts a slow decline that accelerates after age 70. Doctors say this height loss is due to shrinkage of vertebral discs, spinal compression fractures, and changes in posture. And women are at greater risk, losing more […]
