Methionine restriction has been studied in animal models to extend lifespan. Grains are considerably lower in methionine than animal products. And comparing animal products, dairy is lower in methionine content than meat, fish, and eggs. So did... (more)

The average life expectancy has doubled in the last ~200 years and minor changes over the previous 15,000. Why? Sanitation and Modern Medicine.

Berkeley Wellness just released an alert titled "A Prehistoric Diet". It reads in part: "Few of our Paleolithic forebears had heart disease or cancer--but that was because they rarely lived long enough to develop such chronic... (more)

No, it is not justified. They talk like we don't know what Paleo People did, but we do... there are still hunter-gatherers alive and kicking today! I actually dislike the term Paleo for that reason. The foods they criticize the paleo diet of... (more)

I am into living the healthiest life I can, while I'm here. If it prolongs my life, so be it...but that isn't my goal. I am looking for intense quality not quantity. I can't wrap my mind around why people want to live for as long as possible,... (more)

Sex is a favored way to make babies. There is some interplay between reproduction, repair, and longetivity. In fact, worms live much longer when food is scarce and they put a hold on reproducing. And typically, what applies to worms applies... (more)

I think you are going to find actual sex has less of an effect than the levels of sex hormones because human culture is so weird. There is ample evidence that men with very high testosterone levels die earlier, though there are some confounding... (more)

Please excuse the overly broad and lengthy question. What if how we are eating is good for health and makes you a happy Crossfitter or Movnatter, but is not optimal for lifespan? Not that there is any one "paleo diet", but most of us eat lots of... (more)

In answer to the question, "Is a Paleolithic diet the best diet for longevity?".. As a doctor that has been promoting a high-fat, low carbohydrate, and restricted protein diet for almost 2 decades, I have long been saying that one cannot use... (more)

Can eating paleo modify our epi genome making us younger as we get older? in worm studies, caloric restriction reduces insulin to increase lifespan. In Paleo man carbohydrates and not calories are restricted but because the hemoglobin A1c levels... (more)

What we eat and do in this lifetime will change our personal outcomes, but I'm dubious of an effect on personal genetics, which would affect our descendants rather than us. I agree with anonymous that we can increase our longevity most by taking... (more)

Living the paleo life will hopefully put my on track for a long healthy life, which got me thinking - taking everything into account... what could that realistically be? Starting with genetics: looking at my grandparents. One grandmother died aged... (more)

I think quality of life is much more important than shear number of years lived. By eating a clean paleo diet it allows us to make better use of each day due to lack of blood sugar swings and overall better moods. A person who lives a good life,... (more)

Recently my grandmother (I believe she's 92) got diagnosed with an iron deficiency (one of the nurses saw her skin color changed and they did a blood test). Apparently, they only do blood tests every 2 years. They're gonna supplement iron. I... (more)

Iron is necessary in the correct amounts - it is excess iron that promotes the generation of highly damaging Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reactive_oxygen_species The reason why studies show a link between... (more)

The BBC announced today that 1 in 5 people in the UK will live to be 100. They attribute this to better nutrition! Are they right or is it really to do with less people smoking, fewer fatal infectious diseases and people being kept alive with... (more)
