Anti-Ageing

Researchers Find “Anti-Growth Hormone” Increases Longevity You must have read me teaching that growth hormone isn’t really the way to go to beat aging. Daniel Rudman’s groundbreaking research in the 1990s on the benefits of human growth hormone (hGH) showed pretty convincingly that it helped reduce wrinkles and increased muscle strength in a group of […]

Stay Sharp Mentally

by ProfKeith

Stay Sharp! Could it be true that smart people live longer? All the more reason to get engaged with my “New Thought Horizons” material. Apparently, it’s true, at least in reverse: even mild cognitive impairment has a strong independent impact on life expectancy, as bad as other chronic diseases, such as diabetes. In a new […]

I don’t know how exciting US survival figures are for the rest of the world. But they probably contain a hidden message for us all. I’ve heard it said that we are the first generation that will live longer than our children. Well, that trend is already under weigh (correct spelling for lifting anchor, despite […]

Here is an informative past article of mine that is worth reading again. Enjoy!   These days we know that aging is as much about inflammation as anything else. Infections and inflammation are never very far apart. It has become clear that many chronic, under-the-radar infections that linger in the body produce the steady, destructive, […]

It’s obvious that Alzheimer’s is a diet and lifestyle disease. A Mediterranean-type diet, for instance, is known to be protective against dementia. If there was any doubt, a recent study has made it plain. In a 4-week diet intervention study, healthy cognitively intact older adults who stuck to a low-saturated-fat, low-glycemic-index diet experienced decreases in […]

According to a study published in the journal Obesity (Aug 2009), monkeys fed an American diet get fat — but those under chronic stress put on much more belly fat. I did a double take on that. It seems counter-intuitive. Fat is just fat—calories—right? What has stress got to do with it? Well, apparently the […]

You may be surprised but in the USA more women die from facture of the neck of femur than die of cancer of the breast, cervix and uterus COMBINED (it is a similar story in other developed countries). A fracture of the femur is dangerous for an elderly man or woman, because it leads to […]

How to postpone dying

by ProfKeith

If it needs re-enforcing, here is the main medical message all over again: don’t smoke and live a healthy lifestyle! If you don’t smoke, you’ll live longer and are less likely to die of heart disease and cancer. We all know that (yawn…) But if you are a non-smoker or gave up smoking, a good […]

Those of you who have read my book “Virtual Medicine” (if you haven’t, why not!), will have been surprised by my report that teeth can kill. It began as dental infections lodging bacteria in the heart and causing fatal widespread septicemia in the days before antibiotics. But 100 years later, by the end of the […]

Every thought of that? Our skin is precious because it not only makes us look good, it protects us from the harsh outer environment. Recently I recommended a great anti-aging skin cream from Dr Al Sears MD. He’s the real deal as a medical expert, not some phoney paid off by a cosmetic company to […]

One of my subscribers, who prefers to remain anonymous, used Pueraria mirifica (PM) and got the promised breast enlargement. So far, so good. But she says… I purchased two bottles of pueraria mirifica from ainterol.us.com.  I used one bottle (100 caps) and noticed breast growth.  It was great: bigger and firmer breasts.  I bought a […]

Is this the future? Could we extend lifespan to 120 years or more using a drug called rapamycin? No, in a word. But the science is so fascinating, I want to share it here. Rapamycin was discovered in the 1970s during a worldwide search for new antibiotics. It is developed from a soil microbe found […]
