Factors that can add or sustract years from your life

Subiectul life extension este ptr. mine o provocare atractiva (deja ma simt mai bine doar citind despre) inca de cand aveam 14 ani. Cand nici nu stiam ca se cheama asa. Si chiar daca nu constant in ultimii 17 ani am actionat cu practica in aceasta directie, la teorie am fost constanta, adica am fost mereu intr-o continua informare despre ce e influenteaza longevitatea. Am mai primit si apostrofori urate rau din partea unora (pe foarte buna dreptate) cand citeam despre nutritia anti-aging cu tigara in mana (pe vremea cand fumam). Dar pana la urma, toate au condus la ceea ce eu sunt in prezent sau... nu eram cea de azi, daca nu treceam prin ce am trecut.

Va recomand un link interesant, despre cum sa ne lungim telomerii, acele capete ale ADN-ului care ne dau predispozitia genetica pentru cati ani vom traim si ce boli grave putem face:


Printre alte carti, am cumparat in primavara o carticica "Long Life Equation" scrisa de dr. Trisha Macnair in 2007, genul "de buzunar", in care sunt descrisi 100 de factori care pot adauga sau scadea ani din viata. Factorii sunt trecuti in revista in mod sumar, fiecare pe 1-2 pagini, dar avand in spate studii stiitifice temeinice. Aprofundarea ulterioara din alte surse de informare a factorilor care suscita interesul sau incita credibilitatea cititorului, este indicata dupa parerea mea.
