Fruits and Vegetables Aren’t What They Used to Be

By | 2018-05-17T03:54:32+00:00 May 17th, 2018|Nutrition|

If you’re old enough, you may realize that today’s fruits and vegetables just don’t taste like the ones you remember as a child.

It’s not your imagination, or nostalgia.

The drive to increase food production over the last fifty to a hundred years has been successful, but it’s come at a price.

Modern farming techniques have caused water and carbohydrate content to rise, while protein, vitamins and minerals have taken a dive. There’s even a term for it: “the dilution effect.” The result is much more serious than a mere lack of flavor. . .

While we’re urged to eat five fruits and vegetables […]

Remember That Bit About “Early to Bed and Early to Rise”?

By | 2018-05-10T15:53:58+00:00 May 10th, 2018|Natural Health|

Being a night owl is known to raise the risk of a variety of diseases.

People who prefer to be more active during the evening, and who go to bed later and get up later, have higher rates of metabolic dysfunction, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, psychiatric symptoms, mood disorders and winter depression.

But no scientist has ever examined whether these problems increase the risk of death. So two researchers, one from the US and another from the UK, joined forces to find out.

For the study, Kristen Knutson, associate professor of neurology at Northwestern University, Chicago, and Malcolm von Schantz, professor of […]

Forget Cholesterol: This Looks Like the Blood Test that Really Predicts How Long You’ll Live

By | 2018-05-03T06:25:26+00:00 May 3rd, 2018|Natural Health|

If you’ve had your blood cholesterol tested recently, you ought to know that many researchers now agree with what I’ve believed for years – it’s a dubious guide to your health status.

But it’s a persistent medical myth – the notion that your cholesterol levels determine your future well-being and your heart health.

Meanwhile, studies now show there’s a different blood analysis that actually does offer valuable information about your health future. Keep reading for this exciting news. . .

First I want to point out that when you look at studies of how accurately cholesterol test results correlate with things like life […]

These Two Common Food Nutrients Accelerate Aging

By | 2018-04-29T03:24:13+00:00 April 26th, 2018|Nutrition|

If you’ve been following the research into how to slow down aging, you’ve probably read that cutting calories and periodically fasting can help prolong your life. We’ve written about it frequently in these pages.

But not everybody wants to go hungry to live longer. There is some sentiment that good food is worth dying for. I can understand that.

And now there’s good news on that front. Studies show that a few adjustments to the foods you eat – without eating less or fasting – may produce some of the same anti-aging benefits. Here’s the good word. . .

The new line of […]

A Cozy Drink Reduces Glaucoma Risk

By | 2018-04-29T03:03:06+00:00 April 19th, 2018|Nutrition|

If the thought of losing your vision scares you as you get older, you’re not alone. Most people fear blindness more than losing a limb, and almost as much as getting cancer.1

That’s why glaucoma is so scary.

In glaucoma, abnormally high pressure develops in the eye and damages the optic nerve. It’s one of the top causes of blindness in the United States.2

But do you know the worst part about glaucoma?

It gives no warning signs. It comes over you so gradually, you may not even notice a change in your vision until it’s done permanent damage to one or both of […]

This Live-Longer Mindset Gives You Greater Life Expectancy

By | 2018-04-29T02:42:50+00:00 April 12th, 2018|Natural Health|

A recent investigation into the ways in which exercise affects longevity shows that the amount of exercise you do and its intensity may not be the most important factor in helping you live longer.

Instead, in a finding that surprises me, the researchers found that your attitude toward exercise has an outsized effect on your chances of extending your life expectancy.

Here’s a full report on this weird result…

In a Stanford study, people who believed they were more active than other people lived longer than those who believed they didn’t exercise much – even when the exercise levels were, in both groups, […]

New, Fast, Non-Invasive Test May Reveal Your Biological Age

By | 2018-04-06T00:22:33+00:00 April 5th, 2018|Natural Health|

How can two people both born in the same year appear so different?

One looks half their age while the other displays many of the signs of aging. Then again, outward appearances may suggest they’re the same age, but they may have very different health-related futures and life expectancy.

In short, their chronological age may be the same but their biological ages may be quite different.

Finding a way to measure a person’s “real” age (as opposed to what the calendar says) could be far more valuable in identifying and predicting risk factors that influence health and length of life.

Now researchers from China have come […]

A New, Easier Way to Fast – And Add Years to Your life

By | 2018-03-29T12:01:31+00:00 March 29th, 2018|Nutrition|

We’ve written before about how fasting is one of the most effective ways to add years to your life (see Issue #8). In fact, it’s been called the only proven method of life extension.

The trouble is, doing without food is tough.

Now, a growing body of research shows you may be able to reap the benefits without starving yourself. there’s a diet that appears to provide just about everything a dieter could dream of – a smaller waist, less body fat and longer life expectancy along with a brain that works better.

I just heard about this recently at a massive anti-aging […]

An African Tea Slows the Aging Process

By | 2018-03-22T13:59:01+00:00 March 22nd, 2018|Natural Health|

A vast range of herbal teas offers all kinds of health benefits. Heaven knows, they get a lot of publicity, but I still bet you don’t know about a tea with strong anti-aging abilities that’s grown only in a certain region in South Africa. It may even reduce wrinkles.

Its history is rooted in the small Cederberg mountainous region near the Cape of Good Hope, where Bushmen have harvested the leaves for centuries. They use it to treat a wide range of health problems, from skin to heart to bone health.

In fact, there’s almost no part of the body that doesn’t benefit from […]

The Anti-Aging Mineral That Millions Miss Out On

By | 2018-03-15T12:22:52+00:00 March 15th, 2018|Nutrition|

One of the most most important ways to fight aging is to keep your immune system operating at peak efficiency. A declining immune system is one of the most common causes of aging, but there are things you can do to prevent this.

And if you don’t take advantage of those simple steps, it’s likely your immune system will begin to malfunction and you will develop runaway inflammation.

Inflammation can, in no uncertain terms, shorten your life and make what’s left of it a misery. And one, simple mineral can help prevent that. . .

The immune system is sort of the neglected […]
