Doctor Oz re-aired his show Ask Dr. Oz: The Ultimate Anti-Aging Edition. The number of older adults is growing fast, and Dr Oz said that by 2030, 70 million people will be over the age of 65. Sounds like the nursing home business is a great business to go into! Nobody wants to look or feel old though, so there is lots of ground breaking research being done in the areas of Anti-Aging Science and Experimental & Biomedical Gerontology, to slow down and reverse the aging process. Wrinkles creams are changing and are now including ingredients like nano liposomes and human growth hormones. Instead of plastic surgeons using knives to keep people looking young, they are using injections and fillers. Plus, the best anti-aging secret may just be exercise, which keeps your body’s cells younger.
Dr Oz was asked by a woman if it is possible for us to live to 150 years old healthily? The real question is not whether or not we can live to 150 years old, because after all, who wants to be extremely sick and barely hanging on, but be alive at the age of 150? We want to feel like we are in our 40’s or 50’s (or heck, how about feeling like we are in our 20’s or 30’s) when we are 150! Dr Oz said that it is totally possible, though I do not quite understand why he feels so strongly since I do not believe anyone has ever lived to 150 years old yet. I believe Jeanne Calment, who lived to 122, is the oldest person on record in modern times. For those religious folks out there, it looks like the oldest person from the Bible was Methuselah who live to 969 years, but then apparently G-d lowered the average life span to 120 years, and then the average life was lowered even further to our current average of 70 to 80 years (I suppose because of the wickedness of mankind, and if you take a look at the news, it does not sound like we are becoming any less wicked unfortunately). Frankly though, I think even 120 years sounds like a very long life. It would only sound compelling to me to live that long if all of my family and friends also could live that long and be healthy. How long would you want to live for? Do you think 150 years is too long?
Chef Andy’s Salt Substitute Recipe
I am still a bit sad that Chef Andy’s Salt Substitute recipe is not being released officially. I have done some experimenting on my own though, and here is the quantities for the salt substitute recipe that I have found work well together:
5 tsp onion powder
1 TB. garlic powder
1 TB dry mustard
1 TB paprika
1 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp celery seed
