Can we delay aging?

Just like machines and engines, our body ages because of the cumulative damages to our cells, tissues and organs (resulting from daily “wear and tear” and the self-abuse humans are well known for) that exceeds our body’s ability to repair them. These damages lead to obvious signs of aging: sags, bulges and wrinkles, gray hair, loss of muscle, bone and nerve integrity, impairment of hearing and vision, incompetence of various sphincters (bladder and anal, etc), lowered immunity and resistance, and increased susceptibility to diseases and infections. The arteries all over the body undergo severe arteriosclerosis (hardening) which leads to circulatory deficits in various organs (brain, heart, glands, legs, etc) causing stroke, heart attack, reduced libido and other hormonal deficits.

Protect your DNA

By

IN THE new pre-emptive health book, Let’s Stop “Killing” Our Children, which was just released at amazon.com and bn.com, I pointed out that protecting the DNA of children, starting from the womb and in the crib would help them ward off common debilitating diseases, like high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and even cancer, when they reach middle age and older.
