The aging male faces loss of muscle mass (sarcopenia) in his 7th and particularly 8th decade of life to the point where a man cannot push himself out of a chair to stand up. We see men (and women) using a walker as they age and that is unnecessary if physical activity is maintained and meals are comprised of 20 grams of protein or more per day.
A published monograph is worth reading for instruction. [Current Opinion Clinical Nutrition Metabolic Care Jan 2009]

Sophia Loren, Susan Sarandon, Helen Mirren, Christie Brinkley, Jane Fonda – they appear to be ageless women.
At least for females, the quest to remain young cosmetically far exceeds the desire to remain youthful biologically, though the two should not be separated.
A woman doesn’t have to grow old any longer, at least not cosmetically.

I have often wanted to deliver a speech to graduating high school seniors about the land mines and traps that lay ahead of them. Alcoholism, divorce (50% now divorced), illicit drugs, even food addiction.

The Statin Drug Shepherds Mislead The Sheep Again
Sheep have a strong instinct to follow the sheep in front of them. If one sheep in a large flock begins to bolt and run in a different direction the rest may follow. There is no question there is a statin-compliant patient who dutifully follows their doctor’s instructions without question and the rest follow. There is an overly loyal patient pool that follows the orders issue by their self-serving doctors.

When an iconic source of information in modern medicine, The New England Journal of Medicine, publishes a report saying Americans don’t need more vitamin D, contrary to many other published reports, how is the public to sort out this scientific debate?
According to the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) report only 6% of Americans are vitamin D deficient. The NEJM claims too much vitamin D can lead to a slew of health problem that includes constipation, abnormal heart rhythm and kidney stones. [New England Journal Medicine Nov 10, 2016]

Written by the NY Times acclaimed health writer Gina Kolata, an article in the New York Times reports a recent survey reveals three-quarters of participants believe obesity results from lack of willpower and that diet and exercise are in order. [NY Times Nov 1, 2016]

The movement toward recreational and not just medical marijuana use at the State level is inevitably going to change the fabric of America.
There were lines of hundreds of people outside pot shops in Colorado when just one herbal product was legalized there in 2012. In my years in the natural health industry there have been swells of public interest over DMSO, coral calcium, Echinacea, resveratrol, even vitamin C with the publication of Linus Pauling’s book VITAMIN C AND THE COMMON COLD (which by the way resulted in a 300% in mortality from coronary heart disease). But there have never been lines of customers waiting to buy any dietary supplement as there has been for a single herb — recreational marijuana.

According to one source, online sales of dietary supplements now represents 15.5% of overall sales and is a fast growing channel. [McKinsey Marketing] But that may not be for long. Consider these recent events privately reported to me.
A dietary supplement company that had been doing business for over a decade online was in the middle of a December 2015 year-end sale when it ran out of product. With the consent of consumers who wanted year-end pricing, orders were taken but not processed and a promise to ship in mid January 2016 was offered.

Most of the people on planet earth live on less than $4 a day. Many are illiterate. In their struggle to survive, they cannot even fathom what is going on in the elitist genetic laboratories around the world where the quest to develop a genetically perfect human is now on the drawing board.
Yes, a synthetic human if you will. Geneticists have already read the human genome but now they want to re-write it. That is, synthetic genetic information, the entire library of genes called the human genome, would be implanted inside a living cell in the first step toward creating a human being without a biological father or mother.

Rates of obesity and diabetes rose in an era of endless diet books, calorie counting and low-fat diets. Something was obviously amiss. Arteries still become atherosclerotic on the 5-A-Day Plant Food Diet Promoted By Public Health Authorities. In contrast, people in Japan are leaner and healthier and live longer without local gyms and myriads of medications or even dietary advice. France has the most centenarians per capita and eats a diet rich in fats and cholesterol.
In a complete denunciation of modern medicine, the profit-making schemes of health plans and political efforts to make healthcare available to all come to an abrupt halt with a policy-bending report published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that shows access to healthcare does not deliver health. It does deliver treatment.
