Another Study Shows Oxaloacetate Helps Fight Alzheimer’s in Animals

August 22, 2016

Here’s one of my favorite jokes. An older fish meets a group of young fish and asks, “How’s the water?” To which, the young fish respond, “What the heck is water?” While it may not make you laugh, the point is important. We tend to tune out things that are right in front of us. This phenomenon is aptly called a blind spot.

Japanese investors acquired some of the world’s most famous masterpieces and a string of landmark US properties, including Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall.

The Game of Science

April 3, 2017

Fogy, geezer, dotard, and fossil are just a few of the epithets aimed at older people who are assumed to be out of touch with the new. But the fact is, we’re all getting old. People who once looked down on the wrinkled and greying are enduring, in turn, the stigma of age.

May 15, 2017

In 1970, Alvin Toffler discussed the concept of “future shock” in his book by that name. It’s a simple notion. By the time some new thing is fully understood, it’s obsolete. And if enough technological progress occurs in a short time, it can be overwhelming and induce a kind of societal paralysis.

Tapping Hidden Embryonic Powers for Perfect Health

November 13, 2017

My trip back from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel was brutal. It was a 26-hour trek complicated by a nasty cold, but it was worth it. While in Rehobot, south of Tel Aviv, I found unexpected support for what may be the most important scientific theory of our era. It is the theory that aging can be reversed by accessing embryonic gene pathways.

The Cure for Fat and Broke, and a Prediction

January 2, 2018

For me, like so many others, the New Year is a time for self-assessment. Traditionally, of course, I spend it wracked with guilt and shame over how much I ate and drank over the holidays. And soon, we’ll all move on to the ceremonial Abandonment of the Resolutions.
