If one wants to live forever, one of the major impediments we must tackle is cancer, and Metformin may be able to offer protection against what has come to be known as the “Emperor of All Maladies.” Twenty-seven clinical trials, involving 24,000, patients proved the efficacy of Metformin in the fight against cancers of the colon and rectum. Cancer patients using the drug experienced a 42% higher survival rate than those patients not using Metformin. Similar results were observed in patients involved in prostate cancer studies. In recent years, these studies have increased to include cancers of seventeen different body organs, using 21 different species of mice and 4 species of rats.
In 2013, a study by David Sinclair of Harvard and his colleagues reported that the mitochondria in lab mice was restored to youthful productive levels when treated with NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide), a substance which boost levels of NAD in the body. Such a study speaks well to the success of increasing NAD in our own bodies, and the benefits to be gained from doing this. Increased levels of NAD can rejuvenate our mitochondria to the point where it acts like its more youthful self, allowing us, in turn, to rebound to our own youthful vigor while decreasing the threat of so many all too common degenerative ailments.

This makes nuts difficult for your body to fully digest and if the fats and protein do not break down in the correct way, your immune system can be triggered to create antibodies that work to inflame the body’s sebaceous glands and cause pimples!
Scientists have, for years now, been experimenting with how to treat the human condition at its most basic levels. That is, by altering the building blocks themselves, which make up our biology. While we are, at the moment, taking baby steps into this brave new world, it would seem inevitable that at some point in our future, near or far as that may be, science will tame our genetic code. Instead of going to the beauty parlor, will we simply be able to turn on a gene for blonde hair? Will we be able to live out extended lives in a disease free body, designed to our own exacting standards?
Boomers turn 51- 67 this year. Boomers are the kind of people who worry about their retirements and most of them wish to continue to work part-time during their retirement period because they like working and they want to augment their retirement savings.
