So tell me people, what little tips have you all picked up along the way?! For instance, I swear by using apple cider vinegar for basically everything? Surely I'm not the only one.... One shot every morning to start my day why not!
Drink a lot of water. It's crazy how little people drink. I go through 2 L before noon (you're almost always dehydrated after sleep - drinking coffee/tea dehydrate you even more). Then another 2-3 L for the rest of the day. Besides occasional coffee in the morning (once or twice a week) I don't drink anything besides water. I can't see a difference in my own health anymore (because I live like that for over 5 years now), but when I see my old pictures and how my skin looked like when I was constantly dehydrated - the change is huge. 14 years of acne went away without drugs or expensive creams. Only cream I use now is "fifty:50" (50% liquid paraffin, 50% white soft paraffin). So much money and stress saved.
Remember - skin is the largest organ in the body, but we tend to forget about it. It's the first and largest barrier against toxicity of your environment and keeping it in 'good shape' is very important for overall health (not only for cosmetic reasons).
Totally agree we should all drink more and think about what we’re putting in our bodies but tea and coffee have been proven to be hydrating and found towards liquid intake cudnt not defend my coffee sorry :)
He says they currently think the brain’s hypothalamus—known as the seat of control for hormones, body temperature, mood, hunger and circadian rhythms—may also act as a regulator of aging.
Other approaches that have been discovered to have anti-aging benefits in animals include calorie restriction, the drug rapamycin and parabiosis—the practice of giving old mice a blood supply from younger ones. The fact that these diverse strategies all seem to work suggests there may be more than one way to age, and that multiple complementary therapies may be needed to significantly extend longevity,
'Parabiosis' - also known as vampire facials in Hollywood. Yes that's right, Kim Kardashian has aborted fetus blood rubbed on her face. This is common practice. Loreal also a whole range of more expensive products with this in it. Also 'Blood boys' are a profession. This is a rabbit hole you don't want to go down as usually the source of this blood is disturbing.
yes very creepy when money is traded for life itself but it seems an ethical market is possible as healthy people have a surplus and all the means for extraction and testing are really well established.
cryonics is a fragile storage strategy: a constant fresh supply of liquid nitrogen and electricity is required for centuries.
how can a profit making entity be expected to align with the interests of a bunch of corpses that appear as a liability on their balance sheet?
you can try to develop incentives but economics change over time, even environmental conditions do; to say nothing of technology.
if a non profit got this all right somehow how could they reliably remain competent over a period like this? very few entities of any kind survive this long.
what's needed is a compact between generations, like that which exists in families. in a decentralized body preservation scheme each family can store it's own and we have our custodial solution.
but technology cycles never remain in decentralized, fragmented phases for long. centralization is inevitable in any system just as another wave of de-consolidation follows that.
something meta to families is required. what we call religious organizations have always fitted this bill: a common belief shared horizontally across living people as well as vertically amongst the dead and unborn.
What you're describing sounds like Cosmism: the futurist philosophy of Nikolai Fedorov. Very popular in life extension circles and, I suspect, why cryonics did so well in Russia before the financial crash. Worth reading up on.
Laugh all you want but this man is a genius that has called every trend in the last 5 decades. He also invented speech recognition and the electronic synthesizer (Kurzweil is still a brand in that space).
EPR involves rapidly cooling a person to around 10 to 15°C by replacing all of their blood with ice-cold saline. The patient’s brain activity almost completely stops. They are then disconnected from the cooling system and their body – which would otherwise be classified as dead – is moved to the operating theatre.
Im more physicist than biologist so I could just be beeing dumb but have no human old people had blood transfusions from young people? Surely if this worked for humans someone would have noticed by now wouldn't they?
