Two Ways to Reach 100 Years Old
Social Life and Methylation

Surprised? We know that genes play a major role. However, more than 80% of men and women who have hit the 100 year milestone say being socially active has helped them get there, and many baby boomers believe it will help them as well.


We are seeing more and more that lifestyle choices -- physical exercise, diet, staying engaged, having a social purpose -- are becoming stronger influences.


Like their children and grandchildren, centenarians have turned to the Internet to stay connected. More than half use it to view and share photos, and nearly as many send and receive email and search the Internet for information.

Centenarians were also almost as likely as baby boomers to have used an online dating service. About 10% of the 100-year-olds have watched a video on YouTube or listened to music on an iPod.


Centenarians, along with the over-65 group, are the fastest-growing segment of the population. Many of the boomers will help to swell the number of U.S. centenarians to 600,000 by 2050 from an estimated 72,000 at the end of 2010, the Census Bureau said. 


For nearly half of 100-year-olds, walking is their favorite physical activity, but 11% practice yoga, Tai Chi or something similar. Eight percent ride a bicycle regularly, 5% still jog and 2% play a sport such as tennis.

Centenarians can also teach their younger counterparts a thing or two about staying healthy. More than 80% say they eat nutritiously balanced meals, compared with 68% of boomers. Seventy one percent of 100-year-olds sleep eight hours each night, but only 38% of boomers are getting that much rest.

What happens in our cells after one hundred years? What is the difference at the molecular level between a newborn and a centenarian? Is it a gradual or a sudden change? Is it possible to reverse the aging process? What are the molecular keys to longevity? These central questions in biology, physiology and human medicine have been the focus of study by researchers for decades.

The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) has now published results from an international collaborative research project which provides a vital clue in this field: the epigenome of newborns and centenarians is different.

While the genome of every cell in the human body, regardless of their appearance and function, is identical, chemical signals that regulate it, known as epigenetic marks, are specific to each human tissue and every organ. This means that all our components have the same alphabet (genome), but the spelling (epigenome) is different in every part of our anatomy. The surprising result of the work is that the epigenome varies depending on the age of the person, even for the same tissue or organ.   


In the study, epigenomes from white blood cells of a newborn, a man of middle age and a person of 103 years have been fully sequenced. The results show that the centenarian presents a distorted epigenome that has lost many switches (methyl chemical group), put in charge of inappropriate gene expression and, instead, turn off the switch of some protective genes.


The researchers noted that epigenetic lesions, unlike genetic ones, are reversible and therefore modifying the patterns of DNA methylation by dietary changes or use of drugs may induce an increase in lifetime.


Steve: In layman's terms, methylation means detoxification. The better we detoxify, the less toxins inhabit our bodies.


Nutrition and Lifestyle Strategies for Cancer Prevention. ALL NEW!


Most of you have a cancer story to tell. It is a disease that has touched all of us one way or another. The word "cancer" is so formidable because while billions have gone into research, finding a cure remains elusive. 
According to an article written by Board-Certified Radiologist Margaret Cuomo, cancer treatment is fatally flawed. Moreover, Dr. Cuomo states that 50% of cancers are preventable. 
Vigilance, in the form of prevention, is the one aspect we can control. While there are certainly no guarantees, implementing cancer prevention strategies can only help, as well as contribute to your overall well-being.
We have put together the best clinical and research cancer prevention data in the form of a self-help Action Plan, Nutrition and Lifestyle Strategies for Cancer Prevention. Our Action Plan presents over 15 cancer prevention strategies, whether or not you have cancer in your family history. While the Action Plan is appropriate for cancer survivors, it is not recommended for those going through cancer treatment.
