Chronic inflammation as a determinant of future aging phenotypes

Chronic inflammation causes aging more than previously thought. Inflammation was measured by measuring interleukin-6, and aging rates were estimated by number of cardiovascular deaths.

Young Blogger and his 6 year experience following the CRON Diet

 

Pretty amazing results in the studies listed in this article. Restricting calories has increased longevity in every species tested. We now have a sector of the human population voluntarily undertaking the experiment on themselves. Simply eating smaller portions makes a huge difference in our caloric intake, but the CRON diet is “Caloric Restriction” WITH “Optimal Nutrition”. This makes better sense than simply cutting your calories down by 1/3 or more. Super promising solution to the ageing problem until we are able to develop nano- and bio-tech to move us into healthy triple digits and beyond.

Zinc deficiency mechanism linked to aging, multiple diseases

A new study has outlined for the first time a biological mechanism by which zinc deficiency can develop with age, leading to a decline of the immune system and increased inflammation associated with many health problems, including cancer, heart disease, autoimmune disease and diabetes.

The recommended daily intake is 11 mgs for adults, though aging adults don’t often absorb zinc well. Taking anything over 40 mgs each day can lead to problems.
