Aging vindication! -- Archive in aging.

Posted by Walt Stoll [93.8110] on December 06, 2009 at 08:51:15:

Friends,

This morning, I happened to catch Sanjie Gupta, MD interviewing two of the top experts on aging in the world on CNN. It seems I have been too generous with my statement that 80% of aging rate is due to lifestyle and 20% was due to genes. Now, the best estimate is that 90% is due to lifestyle and only 10% is due to genes. That, of course, gives any individual more control over it than even I have been preaching.

They also agreed with me that, currently, there is more progress being made with delaying the onset of the "diseases of aging" so that the individual lives healthier while they are living.

Their prescription for life style changes are the same as I have been preaching: diet, exercise and relaxation. Sounds a lot like the 3LS doesn't it? The biggest dietary recommendation is vegetarianism. The biggest correlation with aging seems to be a plant based diet rather than a meat based diet. Of course, most plant based diets are also unrefined.

They are predicting an eventual average life time to be 1000 years. They were saying that if people would just delay aging today they have a chance to begin to cash in on current research and could actually be able to live long enough to take advantage of the molecular medicine just on the horizon: stem cells, molecular manipulation, etc.

The RYH book is a cookbook as to how to most effectively do exactly what they were saying. Again "way ahead of our time".

Namaste` to us all!

"They are predicting an eventual average life time to be 1000 years."

I'll have to see how I feel at 999.

Good info, Walt.

You know I'm really wanting to set up the rest of my life to include practicing the 3LS perfectly -- so I can age gracefully and healthfully. So I'm writing my PWFD cookbook, have set up an ongoing exercise plan that I'm doing well with, and striving to do perfect SR (twice a day, challenging for me right now) with the occasional meditation retreat thrown in. (My dream vacation is a 10-day meditation retreat at Spirit Rock.)

My next "challenge" is finding a partner who would like to live the same lifestyle. LOL

I'm so glad you taught us the 3LS. It's really a great life plan.

Namaste`
Jan

ps

I used to work with a family of Taoists. They believed the normal life span of a human being was 120 years, but have many stories of people who lived a Taoist lifestyle (in the mountains, away from the influence and stress of society) who lived 200 - 500 years. I believe it.

Namaste`
Jan

I think it sounds positive but where are they getting these statistics? I
don't think that a good lifestyle with eating right, resting and exercise
is "new" news, so I'm wondering if this person is selling a book or has
some reason why they were on the news/interviewed?

Michele,

No book! No promotion. Just two top scientists being interviewed about their views of aging reality. If you are still doubtful, I am sure that CNN has the interview available for sale for a minimal amount.

Do you really think I would have posted a promotional interview?
