 "ANTI-AGING": is it true? 
 
Surprising but true: by several techniques -- some of them amazingly simple -- you can probably extend your lifespan very significantly, and live to what most people would now consider to be a fantastic age -- 140 years or perhaps more, if you start in early adulthood.

The "fountain of eternal youth" has been a recurring theme in literature since ancient times. Now, science is making significant progress in understanding the riddle of what happens when we age -- and evaluating techniques which can slow or even reverse the process.

Some techniques -- such as a vegetarian diet, fasting, and more recently caloric restriction (low-calorie dieting) -- are well-established for their reputed benefits, and have dedicated groups of followers. Today, evidence is accumulating which not only confirms many of the beliefs, but provides data suggesting that there are additional benefits too.

On this website you can find a detailed overview not only of the above-mentioned techniques, but of the whole subject of aging, both from a practical and theoretical point of view -- and how to prevent it. We give information about mechanisms and techniques; and also pointers to likely future developments which may extend potential lifespan even further.

Fasting - your route to prosperity?

We are not experts in "how to prosper" and it is not our business to give you financial advice. But we do suggest that you probably have great potential which at present is unused. Fasting may not give you instant prosperity; but from experience it is predictable that it will clear your brain and give you "more smarts". And a cool head and sharper brain, combined with general good health, may well help you to achieve success which formerly eluded you...

The Role of Oxidative Stress in relation to Caloric Restriction and Longevity.
Gredilla R, Barja G.
Department of Animal Physiology-II, Faculty of Biology, Complutense University, Madrid 28040, Spain.

Reduction of the caloric intake without malnutrition is one of the most consistent experimental interventions increasing mean and maximum life span in different species. For over seventy years caloric restriction has been studied, and during the last years the number of investigations on such nutritional intervention and aging has dramatically increased.

Relationship of aging and tobacco use with the development of aberrant crypt foci in a predominantly African-American population.

In clinical studies, diminished folate availability appears to increase the risk for colorectal neoplasms. Additionally, alcohol and tobacco use are associated with an increased risk for colon cancer, but the early pathologic events by which these agents promote neoplastic transformation are not well understood.

Rapid and reversible induction of the longevity, anticancer and genomic effects of caloric restriction.
Spindler SR.
Department of Biochemistry, University of California, Riverside, CA 92521, USA.

It is widely held that caloric restriction (CR) extends lifespan by preventing or reducing the age-related accumulation of irreversible molecular damage. In contrast, our results suggest that CR can act rapidly to begin life and health span extension, and that its rapid genomic effects are closely linked to its health effects.

Dietary restriction at old age lowers mitochondrial oxygen radical production and leak at complex I and oxidative DNA damage in rat brain.
Sanz A, Caro P, Ibanez J, Gomez J, Gredilla R, Barja G.
Department of Animal Physiology-II, Faculty of Biological Sciences, Complutense University, Madrid, 28040, Spain.

Previous studies in mammalian models indicate that the rate of mitochondrial reactive oxygen species ROS production and the ensuing modification of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) link oxidative stress to aging rate.

Behavior and lifestyle: approaches to treatment of obesity.
Williamson DA, Stewart TM.

The increasing prevalence of overweight and obesity in adults and children demonstrates a steadily growing epidemic. This rising rate of obesity is associated with obesity related comorbidities including cardiovascular disease, hypertension, some cancers, joint disease, and particularly, type 2 diabetes.

Bordone L, Guarente L.

Calorie restriction (CR) is the only experimental manipulation that is known to extend the lifespan of a number of organisms including yeast, worms, flies, rodents and perhaps non-human primates. In addition, CR has been shown to reduce the incidence of age-related disorders (for example, diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disorders) in mammals.

To examine molecular events associated with aging and its retardation by caloric restriction (CR), we have employed high-density oligonucleotide microarrays to define transcriptional patterns in mouse tissues, including skeletal muscle, brain, heart, and adipose.

  Conclusion: the whole anti-aging program
    9.1 Modifying your personal aging curve
      Average life span increment. Expert evaluation.
     
Periodic fasting and caloric restriction can add 40 - 50 years to your lifespan
Regular intake of anti-aging drugs can add 20-30 years to your lifespan
Good nutrition (well balanced, healthy food, individually tailord diet) can add 15-25 years to your lifespan
High-tech bio-medicine service can add 15-25 years to your lifespan
Quality of life (prosperity, relaxation, regular vocations) can add 15-25 years to your lifespan
Regular exercise and moderate physical activity can add 10-20 years to your lifespan
These approaches taken together can add 60-80 years to your lifespan, if you start young (say at age 20). But even if you only start later (say at 45-50), you can still gain 30-40 years
