  • Longevity Seekers: To Live Longer Skip The Expensive Young Blood Plasma Infusions And Supplement Your Diet With Rice Bran IP6

    January 10, 2019: by Bill Sardi


    Nothing like putting a damper on the plans of billionaire oligarchs who have cooked up an expensive cure for human aging that very few but themselves can afford.  It’s the transfer of blood plasma from a young donor to an old recipient to produce an anti-aging effect.  The idea was fostered by recently published studies that show the conjoining of blood circulation of a young animal with an old one results in the old animal becoming younger biologically.

    That experimental procedure is called parabiosis.  Of course, old humans aren’t stitching their arteries together with younger people as they did in the animal lab but rather receive infusions of blood plasma from young donors. [Nature 2015]

  • What Does Low-Dose Radiation From An A-Bomb Have To Do With Resveratrol and Longevity?

    January 4, 2019: by Bill Sardi


    The title of unluckiest and unhappiest man in the world was assigned to Mr. Tsutomu Yamaguchi who during WWII was A-bombed at Hiroshima, Japan and then was evacuated to Nagasaki where he survived a second A-bomb attack.  The A-bombs did not shorten his life.  He lived 93 years.  Another survivor, Sunao Tsuboi, at the age of 20 was 1.2 kilometers from the A-bomb epicenter in Hiroshima.  He is alive and healthy today at age 93 (2018).

  • Resveratrol And A Woman’s Heart

    January 2, 2019: by Bill Sardi


    Main points:

    • Women experience a different form of heart disease than males, largely ischemic (oxygen-deprived) heart disease.  This can lead to heart failure.  This form of heart disease occurs in the post-menopause and is more prevalent with advancing age.  Men generally experience disease of the coronary arteries that supply the heart with oxygenated blood.
    • Many women fear breast cancer more than heart disease even though cardiovascular disease kills 7 times more women every year than does breast cancer.
    • Women experience loss of calcium from bone as estrogen production declines.  That calcium is deposited in arteries, making them less flexible and elastic.  That can lead to a decline in the pumping of oxygenated blood to the heart (diastolic blood pressure) and eventual death of the heart itself.
    • Estrogen therapy is posed as a protective factor but many women are wary of estrogen replacement.  Estrogen produces elevated levels of an intra-arterial gas known as nitric oxide that dilates (widens) arteries.  Resveratrol exhibits the same nitric oxide activation as estrogen.
    • Resveratrol, an estrogen-like molecule (1/7000 the hormonal activity of estrogen) is reported to be as or more effective as a common drug used to treat heart failure and doubles as a preventive for breast cancer.  In the animal lab, female rodents experience a more favorable response from resveratrol than males in regard to heart health.

  • What It’s Like To Be 107 Years Old?

    Oldest barber: 107 years old

    Before I get to the incredible story of Anthony Mancinelli, age 107, there is also the story of Joao Coelho de Souza, born March 10, 1884 (there isn’t supposed to be anybody alive that was born in the 1800s) who has records to prove he was 131 years old in 2016. Is the Coelho de Souza report valid?

  • NEW ERA OF SENOLYTIC DRUGS WILL BLAST AWAY AGING

    December 10, 2018: by Bill Sardi


    In the anti-aging pill arena 2018 has been the year of senolytic drugs – the prospect that synthetic molecules could soon erase the ravages of aging produced by a progressive aging process called cell senescence.

    Four major milestones have been achieved in rapid fashion.These four developments started in 2011 with an animal study where the destruction of “senescent” cells improved the lifespan and health span of laboratory mice.That was followed by (2) the identification of small natural molecules that are capable of clearing the body of “senescent” cells; then (3) these molecules were then shown to improve the lifespan and function of aged mice; and (4) pre-clinical studies show these molecules are successful in quelling a wide range of maladies.

  • Don’t Take It For Granted That You Will Live As Long As Your Grandfather

    November 8, 2018: by Bill Sardi


    Musings (Periods of Reflection or Thought.) About Living An Extra-Long Life

    Some 14 years ago I ventured to Harvard Medical School to interview Harvard Professor David Sinclair, who became the pied piper of anti-aging pills with his published discoveries involving the red wine molecule resveratrol. I ended up writing a book THE ANTI-AGING PILL (now a rare book at Amazon) and was confronted by an unexpected fact: most people don’t want to achieve super-longevity. They would rather retain a youthful appearance over living long enough to drool at the mouth, need to wear diapers to handle their incontinence and be drugged into mindlessness. This is what modern medicine has made of old, old age. As someone once said to me: “What people want is thick hair, smooth skin and Viagra baby!” I ended up re-titling my book to THE RED WINE PILL, which was more appealing.

  • Calling It The End Of Chemotherapy, Resveratrol Trumps Researchers In Quest Of A Cancer Kill Switch

    October 30, 2018: by Bill Sardi


    While the cancer research community is furiously working to develop synthetic micro-RNAs that will selectively kill cancer cells, the red wine molecule resveratrol appears to naturally activate a cancer kill switch that is being heralded today as an alternative to toxic chemotherapy.

    Scientists now say they have found a sequence of three nucleotides (steps on the RNA ladder) that kill cancer cells by virtue of their ability to eliminate three survival genes.  The proposed treatment is called DISE (Death Induced by Survival Gene Elimination).

  • RESVERATROL: REWRITING THE SCIENCE

    October 22, 2018: by Bill Sardi


    Over 7 million results for “resveratrol” on the Google search engine.  Sixty years of research; 133 human clinical trials; twenty thousand (20,000) published research papers plus symposia, conferences, patents and attempts to produce analog drugs (synthetic resveratrol-like molecules).  Doses ranging from 5-5000-milligrams have been put to the test in humans. This is what a recent landmark retrospective report reveals (Biomolecules & Therapeutics, Oct. 2018).  But that portrayal of resveratrol needs to be re-written not only to correct misinformation but to reveal valid science that modern medicine has never dared to put into practice.

    The author of that report is a leading researcher whose groundbreaking research opened the door to study resveratrol.  His worldwide investigation on behalf of the American Cancer Society concluded that among all of the thousands of natural molecules studied, resveratrol deserved singular attention because it halted cancer at all three stages of development – initiation, growth and metastasis (spread), something no existing cancer drug can say some two decades later.  The author, Professor John M. Pezzuto PhD, has written 38 published papers about resveratrol since 1997 and has applied for a number of patents as well.

  • Yes, Old Cells Can Be Made Young Again. But What Are Anti-Aging Scientists Not Telling You?

    August 15, 2018: by Bill Sardi


    Walnuts: comparison
    Longevity seekers, don’t be fooled by news headlines that now talk about reversing aging in living cells with synthetically created molecules.

    Anti-aging researchers are lauding themselves for reversing aging in living cellsOne researcher said: “When I saw some of the cells in the culture dish rejuvenating I couldn’t believe it. The old cells were looking like young cells.  It was like magic.” (Readers can now offer applause.)

    Researchers are talking about restoration of something called splicing factors that facilitate the prolongation of telomeres, those end caps on chromosomes and delay or even reverse cells from becoming senescent – the cells stop dividing and replicating.  Synthetic compounds were reportedly used to reduce cell senescence by up to 50%.
