No evidence for rate-of-living theory of aging

Just a quick post, since this topic dominates anti-aging research – i.e. despite lack of concrete evidence for it, mainstream research (and finding agencies) continue to claim that longevity is tied to metabolism, but in an inverse relationship. The study below is on turtles – one of the longest living organisms on the planet – … Read more

Eating meat extends human life expectancy

Another study challenging the vegan dogma relentlessly promoted by mainstream media under the aegis of World Economic Forum (WEF) members and other similarly microcephalic goons. As the study says, other studies that found benefits in eating vegan diets have failed to account for the so-called socioeconomic factor – i.e. that educated, well-paid people in developed … Read more

Aging is an energy deficiency problem, taking cardiolipin may reverse it

Yet another study demonstrating that “aging” is nothing but a phenotype characterizing an organism with declining energy production. Since most of the cellular energy is produced in the mitochondria, another way of stating the same is that aging (and any specific disease for that matter) is a mitochondrial dysfunction problem. Conversely, reversing that energy/mitochondrial deficiency … Read more

Inflammation (from PUFA), not telomeres, determines lifespan / healthspan

The idea of lifespan being entirely determined by limits on cellular division has ruled biology for more than a century and is perhaps best exemplified by the (in)famous (and false) Hayflick limit. Reaching the said limit is postulated to be controlled by telomere length, and as such the simplistic hypothesis materialized that could extend/control lifespan … Read more

Sexual activity and stress levels (HPA activity) may determine longevity

The study below tried to tease out the main factors affecting the longevity of the legendary naked mole rat – the animal with longest lifespan in its genus, and the sole mammal known to be virtually immune to developing cancer. Most of the biological/biochemical findings in regards to naked mole rats have already been found … Read more

Blue light accelerates aging and reduces lifespan by more than 50%

In one of his interviews, Peat mentioned that red light exposure may be the most fundamental protective factor in nature, and that a deficiency of it (as commonly seen in Western lifestyles) may be the main driver of systemic aging and the diseases associated with it. The study below provides strong evidence in support of … Read more
