New DNA-lengthening Therapy Could Double Human Lifespan

Living BlissHarvard-trained neurosurgeon Dr. C. Norman Shealy develops an innovative new therapy that challenges the phenomenon of aging. For the first time, he has shown in a clinical study that telomeres can be regenerated in healthy people and plans to release results of the Bliss Oils study in August.

“Every time DNA cells divide, we lose a little bit of telomere length, and eventually, the loss is what prevents proper cell division and limits human life,” Shealy said. 

Science has established that people who have longer telomeres, the tips of strands of human DNA, live longer lives and are less susceptible to some diseases. It is the natural lifelong reduction in the length and integrity of the DNA tips that has been a challenge for researchers, until now.

American Meat Consumption at Lowest Levels in 30 Years

per-capita-meat-intake-300x252According to a post at Dr. Barnard’s blog, the latest statistics from the USDA show that Americans are consuming less meat per capita than at any time in the past 30 years.  This is super good news for the fight against the dangerous obesity epidemic in the US, as it has been proven that those who avoid meat are thinner than meat eaters.

Dr. Barnard is an adjunct associate professor of medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine, and conducts studies on the role of nutrition in diabetes, obesity, and lipid management.  He is from a family that includes both doctors and cattle ranchers – those who advise against eating meat and those who provide it.
