  • Why diets don’t work

    Why diets don’t work By Dr. Sergey A. Dzugan   Millions of people seek diets and treatments for being overweight and obese. For most people, weight management is not effective, since the majority of them lose the struggle to reduce weight and blame themselves for the relapse.1 Perhaps the most frequent question that I have been asked over the last 20 years is “How can I lose weight?” In Latin diet (dieta) is a manner of livin...

Dr. Schmidt notes that a 1987 survey found that 24% of adults who visit primary care health clinics "always feel tired" (1). Constant fatigue and low energy are not restricted t...
  • THE FREE RADICAL THEORY OF AGING

    The Free Radical Theory Of Aging Aging is the seemingly inevitable decline in physiologic function that occurs over time.

Dr. Denham Harman, the "father" of the free radical theory of aging, has defined "aging" as the increased probability of death as the age of an organism increases, and diverse adverse physiologic changes accumulate.

  • The Mitochondrial Theory of Aging

    The Mitochondrial Theory of Aging The mitochondrial theory of aging (MTA) was first proposed in 1972 by Denham Harman, the "father" of the free radical theory of aging (FRTA) (1). The MTA was further refined and developed in 1980 by Jaime Miquel (2). There is such a strong connection between the MTA and the FRTA that they are often discussed together as if the MTA was just one f...
