  • See If You Can Catch The Misdirection In The Following Statement: “Humans Cannot Hope To Live Longer Than 115 Years Despite Medical Advances.”

    September 1, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Notice the word “hope.”  Don’t be starting to expect you will live beyond what life insurance actuaries have planned or you will gum up their projected profitability schemes.

    Before readers even get past the first paragraph of this report, I can hear many saying in the back of their minds, “Oh, I never want to live that long.”

    That is because modern medicine has instilled into everyone’s mind an indellible image of wrinkled, feeble, drooling, mindless, incontinent, wheelchair-bound seniors as what they have to look forward to if they live exceptionally long.  If that is the negative image you have of old age, watch for my next report that takes you to a geographical place where humans simply defy the biological clock hands of time, don’t need doctoring and don’t even look their age.

  • The Resveratrol Oracle Interprets Breaking Medical News Reports Published On August 29, 2017

    August 30, 2017: by Bill Sardi interviews the Resveratrol Oracle to interpret recent news reports concerning medical breakthroughs published on August 29, 2017.

    Background: Today August 29, 2017 was a special day in medical news because four different reports heralded seemingly breakthrough treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and heart attacks. went to the Oracle at the Temple at Delphi the ancient Greeks consulted for answers to important questions of their day, to provide us with interpretation of these modern events.

    As background information, the oracle was actually a person who prophesied from a specific location.  The oracle itself was a sunken space below the level of the Delphi Temple floor where the prophetess sat.  The visionary was seated on a tripod over a fissure in the ground from which gases escaped from below.  Her voice would change as she spoke, much like someone breathing in helium and then speaking.

    FDA Approves Pro-Oxidant Dose Of Resveratrol Encapsulated To Reduce Gastrointestinal Side Effects To Treat Orphan Disease (Friedreich’s Ataxia)

    Capitalizing on relaxed requirements to gain FDA approval for orphan diseases (defined as a condition that affects fewer than 200,000 people nationwide), a Jupiter Florida drug company has been awarded FDA clearance to market a specially encapsulated form of resveratrol to treat a debilitating disease known as Friedreich’s ataxia.  Ataxia is a disease where full loss of control of body movements occurs.

    The resveratrol drug (JOT101) utilizes special encapsulation technology and excipients to allay gastrointestinal side effects produced by the pro-oxidant (5000 milligram) dose of resveratrol.  Improvements in measures of speech and hearing were noted in humans subjects given 5000 mg but not 1000 mg dose of resveratrol.

  • Low & Moderate Calorie Diets + A Matrix Of Phytonutrients Prolongs Survival Of Laboratory Rats But Not The Diet Or Phytonutrients Alone

    : by Bill Sardi

    As reported in the European Journal of Cancer Prevention, a genetically bred group of rodents that had melanoma cancer cells injected under their skin given a low-calorie or moderate-calorie diet and/or a cocktail of phytonutrients (20 milligrams total of resveratrol, quercetin, catechin, curcumin added to chow) extended survival of these animals.  But the low and moderate calorie diets or multiple phytonutrients alone did not extend survival significantly.  The multiple phytonutrient combination was utilized to produce a synergistic (epigenetic) anti-cancer effect.  The composition of the diets is provided below.*

  • Oligarchs Take On Challenge To Develop Anti-Aging Pills; But Will Only Oligarchs Be Able To Afford Them?

    August 12, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Oligarch: a very rich business leader with a great deal of political influence.

    Main points:

    • Private enterprises, funded by oligarchs, have commandeered the pursuit of an anti-aging pill, rather than the traditional funding from the National Institutes of Health.
    • Oligarchs may be the only ones who can afford this technology they are developing as health insurance plans don’t pay for a diagnoses of “premature aging” and the masses have limited discretionary income to purchase anti-aging pills out of their own pocket.
    • There are economical non-patentable technologies that have been shown to tickle known longevity genes that are not likely to be employed by these oligarch-driven biotech companies.
    • More research is not needed as gene pathways to produce exceptional longevity and their activators are already known. What is needed is applied science.
    • Humans age at three different speeds throughout their lifetime: (1) childhood growth – no biological aging, just birthdays; (2) full growth and accelerated aging; (3) cessation of aging and a static state.
    • The true scientific reason why humans grow old is that they accumulate minerals as they age and “rust” and “calcify.” Efforts to produce anti-aging pills need to address overmineralization. The overmineralization theory of aging is the only explanation as to why humans age at three different speeds.
    • Resistance to anti-aging pills is expected from many quarters, including the medical establishment, pharmaceutical companies, life insurance companies, politicians, the news media and even religious organizations.
    • Because of this resistance, the pursuit of super-longevity is going to remain an individual one, not a societal one.
    • Economical pathways to prolong the human lifespan exist in the form of food and water fortification and dietary supplementation. But these require policy and regulatory changes emanating from the political sector that is largely bought off by industry and “oligarchs,” leaving such advancements to go by the wayside.
    • Reinstalling the “vitamin C gene” is one example of a restorative technology that could be universally transferred to future generations. Longevity would then be inherent, as it was long ago in human history.
    • A small nutraceutical company has already achieved more than the Google/Alphabet-led CALICO venture that is fueled by $1+ billion of capital. But that accomplishment is being shunned and overlooked.

  • Researchers Says Telomeres Are Key To Delaying Old Age. Don’t Bet On It

    August 3, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    For decades now researchers have been saying what they are learning from young children with a gene mutation that results in premature aging and a shortened life span could have application for the rest of humanity.  Don’t believe it.

    News headlines declare a breakthrough in progeria, the name given to this premature aging syndrome.  Researchers claim by maintaining the length of end caps of chromosomes called telomeres they can push back against this genetic disorder.

    The prevalence of progeria is 1 in 4-8 million births.   Progeroid children are prematurely old.  There are only 145 of them in the world (~16 in the USA).  They develop cataracts, wrinkled skin, become bald and die of a heart attack or stroke in their early teens. Progeria emanates from a mutation in the Lamin-A gene.

  • Out With Aspirin, Ibuprofen & Acetaminophen; Exosomal Resveratrol Exerts Anti-Inflammatory Action Via Its Influence Over microRNAs

    July 29, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Since inflammation is a component of virtually all diseases the molecular mechanisms leading to the anti-inflammatory effects of resveratrol deserve more attention, say researchers.

    Among the myriad biological actions of resveratrol, a chief property is its anti-inflammatory action. [Journal Medicinal Food April 2017]  While many of the mechanisms behind its anti-inflammatory action have been described, this does not mean that present explanations are totally inclusive.  In fact, it appears resveratrol works independently of the Sirtuin1 survival gene, which is not involved in its anti-inflammatory action.

  • Resveratrol may be only hope for Senator John McCain

    July 20, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    If 80-year old John McCain undergoes the same care Joseph “Beau” Biden and Ted Kennedy underwent for their brain tumors, he is a walking dead man.

    This aggressive form of brain cancer (glioblastoma) has a dire prognosis.  There is no cure and treatment is only directed at relieving pain and suffering.  With optimal treatment GB patients have a median survival of less than 1 year (3-year survival is only 2%).

  • Longevity + Neoteny: Living Long, Looking And Acting Young

    July 18, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    This report is going to introduce a new word to your vocabulary, neoteny.  But before that, allow me a few paragraphs to properly introduce this intriguing subject.

    In the modern world where growing old age is now becoming optional and anti-aging pills are on the cusp of becoming reality, the question arises: who wants to live longer just to grow old?

  • Humans Would Live 600 Years If Aging Process Could Be Halted

    June 30, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    A debate broke out recently between biologists who study human aging.  One side of the argument claims the number of people reaching a theoretical maximum lifespan (~115 years) has not increased.  On the other side of the argument biologists argue there is no scientific support for the claim the maximum lifespan is fixed ~115 years.  [Nature June 29, 2017]

    Between 1969 and 1995 there was an uninterrupted increase in maximum reported age at death.  But that advance in longevity appears to have reached a plateau.
