Want To Live Forever?

Hold On, It May Soon Be Possible

By Gloria Lane

Life imitates art. In Brad Pitt's movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” the main
character grows younger, from an old man back to a baby. In the middle of his life, he and
his ladylove find they have just a few good years together; but those years are the best years
of their lives. Turns out this age reversal just may be possible for us, in our lifetime. We won't actually revert back to our childhood, but we could return our bodies and our minds to something closer to their optimum, and, for most people, that is around age 25. However, people can look and feel old in their thirties or young in their sixties.

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing a highly-respected longevity expert, well-known
anti-aging expert Dr. Terry Grossman, head of the Grossman Wellness Center, www.grossmanwellness.com. In his new book Transcend, Nine Steps to Living Well Forever, written with award-winning author Dr. Ray Kurzweil, Dr. Grossman tells how we can greatly reduce the risk of our two biggest killers — heart disease and cancer — and dramatically
slow down the aging process. And here comes the essence of his message: by doing the right things now, we can remain young until research uncovers even more powerful knowledge to stop — and even reverse — the aging process. In other words, if we do the right things now to take care of our health, in just a few years medical experts will have the expertise to eradicate disease, allowing us to live indefinitely. Like the “Forever Stamp,” we may be good indefinitely. No more heart attacks, no more cancer, no more disease, period.

"Just forty years from now, medical research will have further developments such as microscopic devices — called nanobots — that can be injected into your blood stream to keep you healthy at the cellular level."

 

This is where it gets more science-fiction-like: by the middle of this century, just forty years from now, medical research will have further developments such as microscopic devices — called nanobots — that can be injected into your blood stream to keep you healthy at the cellular level. Like little robots, they'll move throughout your body “cleaning up” cancer cells and “shooting down” other diseases with great precision. By 2034, Dr. Grossman says, nanotechnology will have begun to bring fundamental changes to our lives, altering almost every aspect of how we live.

But wait, we're getting ahead of ourselves. For now, our job is to take charge of our own healthcare. You cannot rely solely on your physician, although he can be a big help. With two out of three Americans overweight, and one in three obese, the problems associated with weight are epidemic. The reason for our weight problems is the fat insulin receptor gene.

What if we could turn off this gene at the cellular level? An experiment on laboratory mice showed that they could eat as much as they wanted and still stay slim. They didn't get diseases and they remained healthy longer than the mice whose fat insulin receptor genes were still working.

Foods That Hurt

One thing we can do now to reverse the aging process is to avoid disease by controlling our diet. Cancer cells, for instance, rely almost exclusively on sugar to fuel their growth.

If we drastically limit our intake of sugar and refined starches, we can inhibit their growth.

Foods That Help

Dr. Grossman has found that when it comes to cancer prevention, what you eat does matter...
