New Research Is Eye Opening
The point of the anti-aging documentary “ Reverse Aging Now ,” is that there is a difference between chronological and biological age and that we can control the latter, a point borne out in a new study published July 2015 in the Journal of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The study showed that we age at very different rates, and that we start do so earlier than originally expected. Led by Duke University's Daniel W. Belsky and Terrie E. Moffitt, the latest research studied 954 participants born in Dunedin, New Zealand, in 1972 and '73. The goal was to objectively examine what aging looks like in our third and fourth decades of life. As participants reached 26, 32 and 38, researchers measured key biomarkers, the cohort's metabolic and immune function as well as the state of their gums, hearts, lungs, blood vessels, kidneys and livers. Researchers noted body mass indices and waist-to-hip ratio. They also measured the length of telomeres, the DNA tips that shorten as cells reproduce. The most startling aspect of the study was not that young adults were showing signs of premature aging; their rate of aging was faster than the rest of us.
By the age of 38, the 952 people ranged in biological age from 28 to 61 years old. Participants who were aging faster showed greater IQ declines and signs of increased stroke and dementia risk. Their balance was poorer, their fine-motor control was weaker, and, as judged by such measures as grip strength, they were not as strong. They also reported poorer health compared to their peers. Moreover, independent observers thought they looked older than their contemporaries.
Efforts to prevent, delay or reverse aging are probably best started well before it is clearly evident. The anti-aging documentary “Reverse Aging Now ” is filled with advice from America's foremost anti-aging doctors and scientists so that we can extend our biological health as long as possible.
For a Longer Life, Get More Exercise
Current government guidelines call for 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week to built heart health and combat obesity, but a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association suggest that getting substantially more exercise can produce more dramatically positive health outcomes.
Researchers with the National Cancer Institute, Harvard University and others gathered exercise data from half a dozen ongoing health surveys to accumulate information about the habits of 661,000 adults, most of whom are middle-aged. The study examined 14 years of death records. People who did not exercise at all were at the highest risk of early death. Those who didn’t even meet the recommendations, but got some exercise, cut their risk of premature death by 20 percent, while those who met the guidelines, cut their risk of early death by 31 percent compared to those who didn’t exercise.
The best results were had by those who exercised more than an hour a day, 10 times the suggested guidelines. For the most part, they worked out moderately, mostly by walking. Those people were 39 percent less likely to die prematurely than people who never exercise. The risk of premature death did not drop significantly for those exercising more than 450 minutes a week, yet over-exercise doesn't seem to be the least bit detrimental.
As Walter Willett, MD, the Chair of the Department of Nutrition of the Harvard School of Public Health stated in the anti-aging documentary “ Reverse Aging Now, ”Exercise has turned out to be far more important than we originally anticipated. Regular physical activity helps reduce the risk of heart attack, helps prevent diabetes, helps prevent colon cancer, helps prevent breast cancer, helps reduce the risk of stroke, so there are enormous benefits, one of them being avoidance of weight gain and obesity in mid-life."

Finally the FDA Has Mandated that Trans Fat Be Purged from the American Food Supply
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs) the primary dietary source of artificial trans-fat in processed foods must be removed from all foods sold in the country within three years. “Based on a thorough review of the scientific evidence,” the agency announced. PHOs are not “generally recognized as safe” for use in human food.
Saturated fat raises the bad cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) as does trans-fat, but trans-fats also lower the good cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), increasing the risk of stroke and heart attack. In the anti-aging documentary “Reverse Aging Now" Yale dermatologist Nicholas Perricone, M. D. stated that trans fats also adds to premature skin aging by making cells stiff and inflexible.
Trans-fats are often found in baked goods, snacks, deep-fried foods, refrigerated dough, as well as non-dairy coffee creamer and margarine. Avoid all oils listed on labels as partially hydrogenated.
The Black Death killed a 1/3 of Europe during the Dark Ages. Today, heart disease and stroke kills 2/3 of us in the industrialized world. We don't need to add anything to our diets that contributes to this epidemic.
