Why Some People Look Younger Than Their Age:
Ever wonder why some people look younger than other people who’re the same age?
Hard living certainly takes its toil on our faces. (Compare the looks of Rolling Stone’s Mick Jagger to band mate Keith Richards, for example)
Beyond burning the candle on both ends, and in Keith’s case, in the middle, and beyond lifestyle choices, why do some people continue looking like they made a deal with the devil?
I don’t know either.
But, research scientists, from the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam, say ‘it’s all in the genes’!
Well, in one particular gene, the MC1R gene.
According to the research, variations in the MC1R gene caused people to ‘look’ older than their age.
The MC1R gene also causes red hair and pale skin.
Yet, these scientists didn’t relate the red hair and pale skin factors to aging looks.
João Pedro de Magalhães, scientist from Liverpool University says:
This could certainly open up new research directions for exploring clinical applications by targeting MC1R. As I am sure you are aware, there is a massive cosmetics industry focused on anti-ageing…”
And there, dear friends, is the message: ‘If scientists succeed in manipulating the MC1R gene into giving up it’s secrets to looking younger than our years, we’ll be able to buy it in some form of a lotion, potion or pill…
Oh, Happy Day, that will be…

One Minute Exercise Program:
I’ve known people who claim to love exercising.
They usually lied about other things, too.
I, however, have never, ever, liked exercising.
I do, however, like doing ‘things’ which involve exercising. Love the fun of running and jumping around while playing basketball.
Like to splash around in bodies of water larger than myself.
In other words, I do enjoy doing things.
But, ‘exercising’, for the sake of exercising, seems mindlessly boring.
Yet, regular exercise is one of the foundations to both health and longevity.
So imagine, if you will, getting the benefits of 50 minutes of exercising in just one minute!
After seeing that same headline ‘Get The Benefits Of 50 Minutes Of Exercise In One Minute’,
I tried to imagine such a thing, but my logical mind wouldn’t accept the possibility.
Naturally, I clicked the headline link to prove to myself that it was a bogus claim.
And, I was right!
On the other hand, I was also wrong…
According to researchers at McMaster University, you can get the benefits of 50 minutes of ‘moderate’ exercise, in one minute – if – the one minute is included within 10 minute exercise sessions.
Brief bursts of intense exercise are remarkably effective, a very time-efficient workout strategy, according to Martin Gibala, a professor of kinesiology at McMaster and lead author on the study…”
They’re calling the strategy ‘sprint interval training’ (SIT). Kinda interesting, I thought.

Depression Linked To Cancer, Heart Disease:
OK, it’s official: depression affects your whole body, not just your mind, new evidence confirms.
Anyone who has suffered clinical depression already knew this.
Now a team of “International Researchers” have ‘officially’ linked depression’s effects upon other body functions and organs. (or would that be ‘affect’? Sometimes get the 2 turned around)
Anyway, these researchers are saying depression is screwing up our levels of oxidation.
A process that’s proven to cause problems throughout our body.
And, can cause premature death.

U.S. Medical Professionals Killed 251,000:
Not purposely…I’m pretty sure!
Given the serious situations facing doctors and other medical professionals, it’s amazing that more people aren’t dying from honest mistakes.
Yet, in 2013, the documented number of deaths caused by medical mistakes, was 251,000, making it the 3rd leading cause of death for that year!
Just read an article about this which included a theory that these mishaps are not only suppressed, but go unreported because the cause of death is often attributed to the ailment being treated – instead of medical error.

Probiotic Supplementss Are a Waste of Money:
If you’re taking high-priced probiotic supplements, read this:
Probiotic Supplementss Are a Waste of Money For Health Adults!
Oluf Pedersen, University of Copenhagen researcher:
While there is some evidence from previous reviews that probiotic interventions may benefit those with disease-associated imbalances of the gut microbiota, there is little evidence of an effect in healthy individuals…”
Sales of nutritional supplements is a booming business.
Probiotic supplements alone, is approaching 2 billion annually in the U.S.
And, the joke is: they ‘ain’t helping our guts do anything different than they were already doing!
