Can Living Near a Fracking Site Destroy Your Health and Longevity?

By |2022-03-24T12:54:32-04:00March 24th, 2022|Natural Health|

Unconventional oil and gas development (UOGD), better known as hydraulic fracturing or fracking, has expanded dramatically around the world over the last 20 years.

In parallel, so have concerns over its health impact on people living nearby. These come from air, water, and soil pollution, ionizing radiation and more.

Now, for the first time, environmental scientists from Harvard show those living near or downwind of a fracking site are at higher risk of an early demise.

Conventional gas wells are drilled vertically but fracking is different. After drilling down to between 7,000 and 10,000 feet, the rig turns horizontal to drill for another […]

Gain More “Healthy Fat” if You Want to Age Better

By |2022-03-10T12:00:11-05:00March 10th, 2022|Natural Health|

Usually, when we think about using exercise to fight aging, we focus on how exercise strengthens our muscle tissue and helps reduce body fat.

But, along with helping to trim your waistline, researchers have now found that exercise not only helps eliminate fat but changes it in a way that helps slow the aging process.

So, let’s take a closer look at how you can use those fat upgrades to upgrade how you feel every day no matter how old you are.

Fat has a bad reputation. Over the last couple of decades researchers have realized that fat tissue plays an important role […]

How Much Exercise Does Your Heart Need as You Age?

Exercise is the secret for avoiding heart disease as you age. But how much exercise do you need in your later years? In a first-of-its-kind study, researchers in Italy claim to have found the answer.

Researchers looked at data from a study involving 3,099 Italians, aged 65 and older.

Between the years 1995 and 1997, medical teams examined the participants by taking medical histories, performing physical exams, health scans, and blood tests. Then, four and seven years later, they performed additional medical assessments. Medical teams continued tracking the participants’ overall health until 2018.

At each juncture, participants self-reported their physical activity. Moderate activities […]

Does Semen Hold the Key to Slow Aging?

By |2022-02-24T15:33:53-05:00February 24th, 2022|Natural Health|

An organic compound found in semen is being praised as an amazing age-fighter that provides the benefits of calorie restriction without going hungry. In fact, an acclaimed Harvard geneticist and anti-aging expert claims that “next year everyone is going to be talking about (it).”

Here’s the remarkable story…

The nutrient that I’m talking about is called spermidine.

Spermidine was first isolated from semen – hence its name – and is a type of compound called a polyamine. Polyamines are present in all living cells and are involved in many cellular processes including cell growth and proliferation, membrane stability and DNA\RNA stabilization.

They protect our […]

Billionaires Set Out to Find the Fountain of Youth

Some of the world’s richest people have commandeered space travel by building and launching private rocket ships. Now, they’re setting their sights on anti-aging medicine.

Is it a billionaire vanity project, or a genuine opportunity that will result in longer and healthier lives for all of us?

With $3 billion in start-up funding alone, and top anti-aging scientists on board, physicist and entrepreneur Yuri Milner, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and other wealthy tycoons launched Altos Labs in January. The biotech company aims “to restore cell health and resilience to reverse disease, injury, and disabilities that occur throughout life.”

An Extract from Plants Could Offer Seven More Years of Life

By |2022-02-03T06:12:03-05:00February 3rd, 2022|Natural Health|

One of the most exciting strategies to delay age-related disease and lengthen healthy lifespan is to target a fundamental process of aging called cellular senescence.

Several plant compounds are being investigated to slow this process. However, the most promising by far is derived from grape seed extract.

Tested in elderly mice, the results were extraordinary, extending their lives by over 60 percent.

After the age of 60 we start to develop senescent cells. These cells – also called “zombie” cells – stop dividing and lose function. But instead of being cleared away, they hang around, releasing toxins and promoting inflammation.

Senescent cells have been […]

Astronauts Sent on a Mission to Combat Aging

A gravity free environment weakens muscles just as aging does, except the process is rapidly accelerated.

This understanding led to MicroAge, a scientific space mission to explore processes that will help preserve muscle strength in old age. The mission was launched in a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from the Kennedy Space Center in December. Here’s the fascinating story…

With aging comes many health challenges, one of which is physical frailty. This is a major factor in a person’s ability to maintain independence and quality of life. This progressive loss of skeletal muscle mass, strength, and function with aging causes an increase in […]

New Test Tells You How Well You’re Going to Age

By |2022-01-20T12:30:50-05:00January 20th, 2022|Natural Health|

Chronological age is an unreliable guide to our future health prospects. Some people are robust in their nineties; others are chronically sick decades earlier.

So, top scientists have come up with a better gauge of health – the level of inflammation within the immune system.

Researchers say that this inflammatory aging clock, or iAge, predicts how soon we’ll become frail, and whether we’re likely to suffer a whole host of age-related diseases.

Low grade, chronic, body-wide inflammation starts to develop as we get older. It damages organs and tissues, and increases the risk of cancer, […]

Does Stress Age You Faster?

By |2022-01-13T07:59:38-05:00January 13th, 2022|Natural Health|

During stressful times it’s not uncommon to hear someone say, “I feel like I’ve aged ten years.”

Well, it turns out there’s something to that statement. Scientists have now proven that it’s not all in your head.

The research shows that stress does make life’s clock tick faster! In past studies, prolonged stress has been linked to diabetes, heart disease, and more.1 Now a study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that stress can add years to the age of individual immune […]

Does Surviving Cancer Impact the Way You Age?

By |2021-12-23T12:06:53-05:00December 23rd, 2021|Natural Health|

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 […]
