Re: Who wants to live to be 150?

It amazing that people often see the diseases of aging and by extension aging itself as something set in stone because it's the way it's always been but the reality is that we are in all probability on the brink of developing the first generation therapies which will bring the disease of aging such as diabetes, atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease, osteoarthritis, Alzheimer's and cancer under a decisive level of clinical control. If we can address these conditions then in my opinion we have a moral obligation to do so at the earliest opportunity.

Amazing acupuncture

You may not like the idea of being needled, but acupuncture has been a go-to therapy for 5,000 years. And this Chinese healing art, which uses hair-thin needles to stimulate points in the body that affect chi or qi, the life energy, has been in the news lately - not just because celebs like pop star Alicia Keys and bike racer Vincenzo Nibali use it to stay energized, but because modern medicine is discovering more and more about the powers of acupuncture to heal the mind and body.

The Fatty and Not the Fat

We have all heard about the literal and figurative impact the obesity epidemic has on the weight-bearing joints: early and relentless degenerative arthritis, as our knees and hips struggle against that out-of-range Body Mass Index, cartilage deteriorating along with the will power to try another diet , worsening knee pain making exercise less desirable, and less feasible. Obesity has always been considered one of the primary risk factors for osteoarthritis, but the reasoning as to why is not as tidy as one might assume, for it does not explain why significant arthritis is also found in the hands and other joints of overweight patients--joints that do not bear weight.
