Can Money Buy a Longer Life?

By |2021-11-18T10:04:25+00:00November 18th, 2021|Lifestyle|

It’s said that money can’t buy you happiness. That’s certainly true. But there’s something money can buy, apparently. According to researchers wealth can buy you a longer life.

Read on to find out just how much wealth researchers say you’ll need to accumulate to extend your lifespan.

The new study, conducted by researchers at Northwestern University, is not the first to examine if money is tied to lifespan.

For instance, a previous study found an increased risk of death among retired stockholders when their wealth was reduced after a sizable fall in the value of their holdings.

Other studies have found that accumulated wealth […]

Scientists Identify New Fountain of Youth Organ?

By |2021-11-11T11:31:34+00:00November 11th, 2021|Natural Health|

With the passage of time, changes to organs and tissues can lead to age-related diseases such as heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s. Dozens of medical teams around the world are investigating how this process could be stopped or reversed.

Now research suggests that slowing down the process of aging—and maybe even stopping it all together—begins in one recently discovered organ.

The research shows that if this organ remained a picture of health so would our bodies.

What is it? This brand-new organ is your gut microbiome…

Your gastrointestinal tract contains a microbiome that performs so many functions necessary for our survival that many scientists […]

What is a Good Age to Die?

By |2021-11-04T11:14:20+00:00November 4th, 2021|Lifestyle|

While longevity is a goal for many, others are concerned about living too long and enduring any suffering that might come with it.

For example, the popular British singer and TV presenter, Cilla Black, said in 2010 when she was 67, that she didn’t want to live beyond the age of 75.

Four years later, the acclaimed oncologist, bioethicist and former advisor to President Obama, Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, then aged 57, echoed her words, writing that “75 years is all I want to live.”

Their comments beg the question, is there a good age to die?

Researchers at the University of Kansas explored […]

In September, a man who lived in a remote African village passed away at the ripe old age of 127. If validated and officially recognized, that would make him the oldest person to have ever lived according to scientific record.

This feat of longevity would overtake Jiroemon Kimura from Japan, the previous male record holder who died in 2013 at the age of 116, as well as the current overall world record holder, Jeanne Calment, a French woman who died in 1997 at the age of 122.

Will longevity records continue to be broken in the future or have we reached the […]

The culinary recipe for a long life goes beyond eating fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean sources of protein and fats.

An emerging field of nutritional research examines how meal times affect the body’s daily rhythms and what this means for our health.

Do you sometimes sneak in a post-lunch nap, but feel guilty about it? Some recent research will relieve your guilt.

An Early Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s Diagnosis is Just a Sniff Away

By |2021-09-16T10:09:35+00:00September 16th, 2021|Natural Health|

If your sense of smell let you down any time over the last 18 months it was probably because you were a victim of the coronavirus.

But COVID-19 isn’t the only reason you can lose your ability to smell. It can also signal the onset of Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease.

So, being able to test this successfully would not only help track the recovery of COVID-19 patients, but also help physicians spot neurodegenerative conditions at an early stage.

Scientists from the United Kingdom say they’ve developed just such a test. What’s more, it will soon be available for at-home use.

The link between losing […]
