Why do we age? The Current Theories...


Why do we age? It is because everything wears down with time? Cars, computers, radios. Conventional wisdom tells us this is true, but humans are different because we are constantly renewing our cells. We get a cut on our finger and in 2-3 days it is back to normal. So, if our body can heal itself, and even fight disease, why can?t it perpetuate our youth?

The shocking answer is that no one really knows. Numerous theories exist and we will look at the two most popular.

Theory #1. We age by design, our DNA is programmed to slowly let us degenerate.

This can be called the Gene Expression Theory Of Aging. It states that after a certain time our bodies trigger a code that slows repairs. Support for this theory can be seen in simpler organisms in nature like lobsters, coral, and sponges which show no signs of aging at all. The fact that they show no signs of deterioration suggests that some evolutionary change must have occurred as creatures became more complex. Another way to think about this theory is to look at life spans: a fruit fly lives for 30 days, a mouse 3 years, a turtle for 100 years, and a Redwood tree lives for 1000 years. What is the difference for the amount of time it takes for each to age and die? Is it a matter of their complexity, or their genetic programming?

In 1993 a landmark study by Cynthia Kenyon at the University of California San Francisco found that mutations in a single gene could double the lifespan of Caenorhabitis Elegans, a type of small worm often used in genetic studies. This one single finding provided the first step in proving the gene expression theory of aging, and sparked a wave of research for extending human lifespan.

Theory #2. Our body accumulates damage and our repair mechanisms can't keep up.

The other theory of aging states that aging is more a matter of evolutionarily neglect than intent, and that our anti-aging defense mechanisms are not yet up to snuff. Our bodies are complex and over time irreparable damage occurs in our body's tissues, cells, and DNA via random accidents in the chemistry of our body. This theory can best be termed The Stochastic Theory of Aging and has lead to the widespread popularity of everything high in antioxidants which could help keep the bodies chemistry more stable preventing the chance of accidents and damage. Aubry DeGray captures this view best in his program of SENS(Strategies for Engineered Negilible Senescence).

Possible solutions for Aging.

The realization that aging is not inevitable has lead to a paradigm shift of treating aging as a disease. The two theories battle it out in how each hopes to find a solution, or cure, to biological aging. The Gene Expression theory is hoping that genes can be identified which contribute directly to aging, and via gene therapy, be reversed or mitigated. The Stochastic theory believes that we can never outsmart our genes and we will need to create (engineer) technologies to repair the body where it is falling short.

CELLULAR UNITY is where the body stops ageing and is only achieved in an alkaline diet not an acid diet ! Energy over the surface area of our food and the surface area of our cells should become constant and not in flux . The amount of carbon we produce should also be in balance with the weight of the food we consume !

All cooked food destroys the enzymes and this will cause rapid ageing but tomatoes are best cooked and has a good amount of phosphorous to build the walls of new cells .

Telomerase enzymes are most important to produce a perfected cell copy of the mother cell ! The body runs out of them at the age of 25 ! Wheat grass and rye grass juice has a good cheap supply of them and will stop you ageing if you drink 2 pints a day .

Green tea and coco are most important as they clean and rebuild the walls of veins and the walls of all body functions eliminating diabetes if taken with grass juice ! Grass juice has 93 enzymes and a perfected balance between sugars enzymes B vitamins oxygen and chlorophyll !

The Human BODY is also a HARMONIC construction right down to DNA the intake of energy and the out put of physical force should always be in harmony with the key note harmonic of the body !

It is vital the humans must learn these truths and forget the old way of thinking when it comes to being healthy ! Age is not the cause of a dysfunctional body it is the continuity over energy and time that we must understand and the use of added enzymes acids and proteins to stop our cells switching to dormant cells dead cells and black cells !

It is also important that humans learn that a physical body has a P H trigger to disease and ill health . The signs of rapid ageing can also go in reverse so don't lose faith and slowly return to your health as your were when only 25 years of age !

Food should never be a pleasure as it is a fuel not a hobby and exercise is how the body fire keeps a light !

We need very little to stay healthy and young avoid complex and cooked foods and meat ! Go for a pure food diet with plenty of green tea amino acids grass juice greens tomatoes peppers the skin of fruit pure water almond milk rapeseed oil . You don't need anything else ! Experiment with these and you will never get old or as we say rotting body syndrome ! Not even Gray hair wrinkles or any other so called age related problems and if you do have these problems just stick to the above list and with a bit of time your body will return to a young body !

There are to many dead ends and idiot experts trying to con you forget them and keep it simple ! If you want join me on a journey to youth, reply here to let me know! GOOD LUCK but never get greedy for the bad things in life it will make you sick fat weak slow and grow a cancer of get a hart attack or even worse a very slow and pain full death .... CHECK OUT GIANT HUMANS some of them lived for over a thousand years .... But they were drinking to much grass juice and honey with cows milk !

The reality of what you now see will change your life for ever this is not a new concept its a secret that has been here for many thousands of years ! Try and avoid religions politics a material life and stay well clear of the super markets and GM foods !

KEEP LIFE SIMPLE SHARE YOUR LOVE HELP THE POOR AND FEED THE BODY WITH EVERYTHING GREEN.
