  • Antioxidant Extends Lifespan

    The National Institute on Aging (NIA) announced the final results of testing from three government labs regarding the patented antioxidant nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA). All three labs agreed that NDGA extended lifespan by a resounding 12% in mice (1) (see Figure 1).Figure 1: The survival plots for m...
  • Living to Ninety Years and Beyond

    Living to Ninety Years and Beyond “In ancient times the people lived to be over one hundred years, yet they remained active and did not become decrepit in their activities.” Nei Chin Su Wen, The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine, circa 2600 B.C. Even without using anti-aging medicine, it is possible to live beyond ninety years and do so in good health if you live a lifestyle indigenous to various islands such as Ok...
  • New Health Revelations from the London Anti-Aging Conference, October 2014

    New Health Revelations from the London Anti-Aging Conference, October 2014 This important anti-aging conference brought forth some interesting questions and theories not previously discussed in a rigorous manner at other medical meetings. For example, Dr. Thierry Hertoghe of the Hertoghe School of Medicine presented convincing data based on 220 research articles (1) that aging can be reversed by at least twenty years if one applied his methods such as a special diet (Paleol...
  • What your doctor can’t tell you about free radicals

    What your doctor can’t tell you about free radicals At Honolulu’s oldest hotel, the Moana Surfrider, I scheduled a meeting with Dr. S., a prominent eye surgeon. He was enjoying his visit to the Hawaiian Islands by taking a much-deserved break from his busy practice. His specialty was cataract surgery and I surmised from his expensive clothes and visit to Hawaii’s most luxurious hotel that he enjoyed a very profitable practice. After exchanging pleasantries, I asked him if he r...
  • Interview with Dr. Richard Lippman about free radicals, aging and ACF228®

    Interview with Dr. Richard Lippman about free radicals, aging and ACF228® Phil Micans, the Editor of Aging Matters magazine interviews Dr Richard Lippman on 5/5/2014 -(herein referred to as PM and RL respectively). PM: “Dr. Lippman it’s a great pleasure to be in your company again and thank you for coming to England.” RL: “Thank you Phil I’m glad to be here.” PM: “My pleasure. Of cours...
  • ACF228: the Breakthrough Antidote to Aging

    ACF228: the Breakthrough Antidote to Aging Everyday we see our aging bodies in the mirror reflecting hair loss, irregularly pigmented skin and wrinkled, lined, and sagging faces. Internally the body’s organs also undergo an age-related decline. Processes at the cellular level cause inadequate DNA repair and cell replication responsible for the deterioration of cells. This in turn leads to cell atrophy, loss of function, and most importantly, organ and muscle shrinkage. For example...
  • 7 questions posed to Dr. Richard Lippman regarding his product ACF 228

    7 questions posed to Dr. Richard Lippman regarding his product ACF 228 1. What is your background and vast experience in the field? I have a triple education in chemistry, medicine, and physics. I studied chemistry and physics at the Department of Physical Chemistry, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. Subsequently, I attended medical school at Biomedicum, University of Uppsala, Uppsala, Sweden. (In Sweden, these two institutions are regarded as equivalent to...
  • Is Your Brain Clearing Beta-Amyloid, the Leading Cause of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s?

    Is Your Brain Clearing Beta-Amyloid, the Leading Cause of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s? “When we skip sleep, we may be doing irreparable damage to the brain prematurely aging it. . .” M. Nedergaard, MD Until a few years ago, scientists thought that the brain did its own cleaning and recycling of waste both day and night. However, Professor Steven Coles of Stanford University has established that beta amyloid clearance in seniors is highly inefficient and incom...
  • The Nuts and Bolts of Aging Part Five

    The Nuts and Bolts of Aging Part Five: Step Up and Be Counted, There’s a Medical Revolution Going On Recently, a neighbor asked me about the flood of TV ads every night for testosterone (Testo). “What happened to the idea that testosterone causes prostate cancer?” he asked. I patiently explained that old ideas about testosterone causing cancer have recently been overturned by Prof. Abraham Morgentaler of the Harvard School of Medicine. Unfortunately, in 1941, Dr....
  • The Nuts and Bolts of Aging Part Four

    The Nuts and Bolts of AgingPart Four: Positive Correlation of Lifespan with Key Repair Substances In Parts One through Three, we examined human maximum lifespan and how it is determined by repair mechanisms that kick into effect during our youth. Subsequently, in Part Four, I will explain how the maximum lifespans of several mammals, including humans, correlate with concentrations of key repair substances such as hormones and peptides. Non-scientists often ask me if th...
  • The Nuts And Bolts Of Aging Part Three

    The Nuts And Bolts Of Aging (Part Three) Why our lifespan is limited to 115 years and how to get a better quality of life after age 40 In parts one and two, we established that our potential lifespans are determined by repair mechanisms that kick into effect during our mid-twenties. Subsequently, in part three, I will explain specific questions about the maximum human lifespan. I am often asked how long we can reasonably expect to live if we avoid ma...
  • Extreme Strength, Balance, Body Firmness, and Brain Speed

    Extreme Strength, Balance, Body Firmness, and Brain Speed Physicians of the Utmost Fame Were called at once; but when they came They answered, as they took their Fees, “There is no Cure for this Disease.” —Hilaire Belloc In my youth, I heard it said that there is no cure for the diseases or symptoms of aging, namely loss of firm bodies, muscular strength, and brain speed. I now beg to differ with this stale aphorism. We can alter the ...
  • The Nuts and Bolts of Aging Part Two

    The nuts and bolts of aging: Part two (Waking up our vital cells with hormones and anti-cancer–inducing nutrients) In Part one of this article, I established that our potential lifespans are determined by repair mechanisms that kick into effect during our mid-twenties. At this benchmark, the aging process starts because random molecular damages begin to exceed repairs. Therefore, we should be examining the underlying causes of aging and the consequent repair of our disintegrating ...
  • The Nuts and Bolts of Aging Part One

    The Nuts and Bolts of Aging: Part One (Aging is caused by random molecular damages exceeding repairs) The belief that aging is an unsolved problem no longer holds true. Recent evidence suggests that aging is not a gene-driven process (1). Indeed, Nobel Prize winner and co-discoverer of DNA, Dr. James Watson, has stated in an email to me that only 5 percent of the diseases of aging are caused by malfunctioning genes (endnote one). Instead, aging is a ...
  • Cardiovascular disease is America’s number one killer

    Cardiovascular disease is America’s number one killer, yet Doctors often ignore it until it’s too late! “Physicians have plateaued in their understanding of heart disease by limiting themselves to only five risk factors.” Mark C. Houston, MD, MS. My younger sister is sixty-two years young. Recently, I was shocked when she rang me from the cardiac ward of my local hospital. In a weak voice, she briefly explained that two days earlier she had collapsed in her kitchen; ...
  • Testosterone and other deficiencies

    Testosterone and other deficiencies “It’s about time we take testosterone away from the athletes and return it where it belongs, in the testicles of 80-year-old men!” comedian Bill Maher Rosy and her husband, Tony, breezed through the front door of my office and brushed quickly past my receptionist. Rosy needed to see me post-haste. Out of breath, they plopped themselves down in two of my comfortable leather chairs, and Rosie’s eyes signalled an emergency....
