What Will Life be Like When Millions Live Past 100?

By |2018-12-13T12:20:32+00:00December 13th, 2018|Lifestyle|

Education. Work. Retirement. That’s your life plan. It’s a simple, three-stage model we have all learned to expect. But this model is rapidly becoming out of date.

For the last two centuries life expectancy has increased by more than two years every decade. In 2014, as many as 72,197 Americans were aged 100 or over. That’s an increase of 44% since 2000.

This means individuals — as well as companies and governments — will have to start planning for much longer lives.

In their book The 100-Year Life, authors Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott are optimistic these extra years are a precious gift. […]

Pack on This Type of Fat and Live Longer

By |2018-12-06T13:17:18+00:00December 6th, 2018|Natural Health|

Most of us want to live a long life, but only if our later years are spent in good health. The buzzword these days isn’t “lifespan,” it’s “healthspan” – how long can you enjoy life to the fullest?

That’s why, for the past 20 years, scientists and researchers have been working hard to find ways for people to enjoy a longer healthspan. And according to some researchers, a certain fat naturally found in our bodies could be the answer.

Yes, this is a fat you WANT.

As I hinted, the fat I’m talking about is not just any fat.  The secret lies in […]

Scientists Say This Life-Extending Nutrient Should be Considered a Vitamin

By |2018-11-29T07:48:43+00:00November 29th, 2018|Nutrition|

Arriving from all over the world, a veritable Who’s Who of anti-aging scientists gathered at the campus of UCLA in Westwood, California in 2011.

They met to discuss a newly rediscovered nutrient that must be obtained from the diet. It’s a type of sulfur-containing amino acid, but it’s also been described as a potential vitamin with powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties.

It’s called ergothioneine. . .

Ergothioneine (ET) was first isolated by a French scientist in 1909, but largely ignored for the rest of the century.

Then in 2005 interest was reawakened by a paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of […]

Drugs of This Type are Known to Extend Lifespan

By |2018-11-22T12:44:56+00:00November 22nd, 2018|Pharmacology|

In a number of widely different species – yeast, worms, flies, mice – there’s a class of pharmaceuticals proven to slow aging and lengthen lifespan.

Many anti-aging researchers believe these drugs, called rapalogs, (the best known being rapamycin) hold out real hope for extending human life.

One of the researchers is Mikhail Blagosklonny, cell stress biologist at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo, New York. To quote his very upbeat opinion, “Given that rapamycin consistently extends maximal lifespan in mice, rapamycin will likely allow mankind to beat the current record of human longevity, which is 122 years.”

Is he right? Let’s take a look. […]

Maple Leaf Extract: Has Botox Met Its Match?

By |2018-11-16T01:09:57+00:00November 15th, 2018|Natural Health|

From lovely fall foliage to delicious syrup, the mighty maple tree has much to offer, and now scientists have discovered it may also help keep skin youthful.

University of Rhode Island researchers presented their interesting new findings at the 256th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS) in August 2018.

According to Navindra P. Seeram, Ph.D., the project’s principal investigator, the scientists had previously studied the chemistry and health benefits of sap and syrup obtained from the sugar maple and red maple trees.

But the part of the tree with the most promising youth secret is not something you’d normally […]

‘Youth Drug’ Popular with the Rich and Powerful (You Can Get It, Too)

By |2018-11-08T06:14:14+00:00November 8th, 2018|Pharmacology|

Almost 70 years ago, Dr. Ana Aslan, a cardiologist from Rumania, pioneered a treatment to fight aging. It was an injected local anesthetic called procaine (Novocaine), combined with antioxidants and stabilizing agents. You probably know Novocaine as an anesthetic dentists use to numb the teeth and jaw.

The remedy was said to boost health and vitality, and was touted as an elixir of youth. This encouraged rich and famous people like Charlie Chaplin, Kirk Douglas, John F. Kennedy and Winston Churchill to fly to Dr. Aslan’s clinic in a small city called Otopeni.

Her remedy was called Gerovital H3 (GH3), and today […]

Want to Live Longer? Eat This Snack Three Times a Week

Research now shows you can improve your health and increase your chances of living longer with a snack that doesn’t cost much, and is already popular for good reason: it’s delicious.

This goes against the widespread belief that the foods that help you get healthier are dull and tasteless. Ice cream, alas, does not appear on any list of health foods I’ve seen, but this is almost as good. . .

Nuts– one of my all-time favorite munchies – have proven again and again to help the body fight off illness, improve your brain and increase your life expectancy.

It doesn’t even seem […]

Since the early 1900s it’s been taken for granted that our life expectancy, year by year, would keep getting longer and longer. What with improved knowledge of nutrition, better medical care and more of it, safer jobs…

In many parts of the US and the world, life expectancy has begun to grow shorter. If you don’t want to be a victim of this disturbing trend, keep reading to find out what you need to do.
