E Is Anti-Cancer - Despite great advances in medicine,
cancer is still a very common disease. At current rates, more
than a third of us will suffer from cancer during our lifetime
and about one in four of us will die from it. According to
the American Cancer Society, 7.6 million people worldwide died
from cancer in 2007...
Digestive Problems Naturally - With age, your body’s
ability to digest foods declines. You have less stomach acid,
and less intrinsic factor, a stomach secretion that helps you
absorb vitamin B12. Often you also have less of the pancreatic
and liver enzymes that digest protein and fat. Your gastric
motility—the speed at which things move through your
GI tract-- slows down. The result: uncomfortable feelings of
fullness even when you haven’t eaten that much, belching,
heartburn, gas, bloating, and constipation. Along with this
can come nutritional deficiencies, as absorption of nutrients
Therapy: A Painless Trip to The Dentist - In just one minute, OZONE gas
is applied to the infected tooth to eliminate all bacteria
and cavity causing agents. This procedure uses no drills, no
injections and it is simple and affordable. OZONE therapy is
able to go deeper into the tooth to treat dental problems that
have been left decaying for too long. The ozone will sterilize
the decaying area without having to remove large areas of the
tooth, like traditional bacteria removing techniques. OZONE
can also be used for other treatments in our office. ‘Bio-Restructuring’,
such as wound healing, desensitizing of teeth, and treatment
of infections like Lip Herpes are all simple pain-free procedures...

Supplements to Stop Aging and Improve Immune Functions -
Garlic has been known for its beneficial effects in many cultures
and in recent years garlic supplements have become increasingly
popular. The ancients knew of garlic’s powerful infection-fighting
properties. Nostradamus, the famous 16th century seer and physician,
was credited with saving many lives during the Black Plague,
by stringing garlic cloves around the necks of his patients.
Some regard this account as more legend than fact, but modern
double-blind clinical studies have shown that garlic is a natural
antibiotic that kills 27 different pathogens. These are impressive
credentials for such a humble, everyday plant.
Clearly with Fish Oil - Keep your eyes focused and your
sight strong by consuming large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids,
suggests a new meta-analysis - the gold standard in scientific
reporting. The University of Melbourne pooled data from nine
studies and found that a high intake of omega-3 fatty acids
may reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
by up to 38%. AMD is a degenerative retinal disease that causes
central vision loss, leaving only peripheral vision. It’s
also the leading cause of blindness. (Chong EW-T, et al. Archives
of Ophthalmology. 126(6):826-833, 2008.)

Up Brain Power Helps In Aging Process - The most depressing
thing about getting older is that it can't be stopped. Or so
we've been told. The aging process seems to be one of inevitable
decline, the withering away of both body and mind. But is our
fate really so fixed? All signs point to ... not really. Consider
Dara Torres, the 41-year-old U.S. swimmer. Although now competing
in her fifth Olympics, Torres is swimming faster than ever
before. Or what about Madonna? The pop star may have turned
50 this month, but die-hard fans are paying up to $350 to see
the former Material Girl perform.

Is a Nutritional Wonder - Nothing beats a big slice of
perfectly ripe, icy cold watermelon on a hot summer afternoon.
Watermelon has lots going for it healthwise, so it’s
a guilt-free treat. It’s one of the best food sources
of glutathione, an antioxidant important for liver detoxification.
It’s also a great source of lycopene, which reduces risk
of prostate and other cancers. And it contains citrulline,
an amino acid that converts to arginine, which helps to dilate
blood vessels and may help blood pressure. It’s a decent
source of potassium, vitamin C and beta-carotene. And it has
only 46 calories per cup!

Effects Of Menopause On Skin Care - As women we are always
aware of the changes that happen with our bodies as the years
go on. Some things we can avoid but others we have no choice
but to go through. We have changes with our bodies from the
time we are born and it is an ongoing process. The one stage
that seems to take the most toll on women is menopause.
Acid Reduces Risk of Dementia - Folic acid is critical
to proper brain function. A new study found that people with
low blood levels of this essential B vitamin are 3½ times
more likely to develop dementia than people with normal levels.

Tips To Dramatically Improve Your Chances Of Living Forever -
There is no such thing as a natural death. Nothing that happens
to Man is ever natural, since his presence calls the whole
world into question. All men must die, but for every man his

Redux: Essays in the History and Philosophy of Artificial Life -
Since antiquity, philosophers and engineers have tried to take
life’s measure by reproducing it. Aiming to reenact Creation,
at least in part, these experimenters have hoped to understand
the links between body and spirit, matter and mind, mechanism
and consciousness. Genesis Redux examines moments from this
centuries-long experimental tradition: efforts to simulate
life in machinery, to synthesize life out of material parts,
and to understand living beings by comparison with inanimate
Human: Living with Robots and Cyborgs -
Concepts once purely fiction -- robots, cyborg parts, artificial
intelligences -- are becoming part of everyday reality. Soon
robots will be everywhere, performing surgery, exploring hazardous
places, making rescues, fighting fires, handling heavy goods.
After a decade or two, they will be as unremarkable as the
computer screen is now in offices, airports or restaurants.

On The Nanobots, And We Will Live Long And Prosper -
Extending human life expectancy is not a new story. When
our genes evolved thousands of years ago, it was not in the
interests of the species for people to live past child-rearing
as resources such as food were in very short supply. So human
life expectancy was in the 20s a thousand years ago. It was
only 37 in 1800. It is now pushing 80, and we have been adding
about three months each year for the past several decades.

We Live Forever? - This year, nearly 700,000 people will
die from heart disease, and almost 600,000 will be killed by
cancer. Another 150,000 will become a victim of a stroke. What
if scientists could eliminate disease, or what if we could
eliminate sickness? If we do everything right, is it possible
that we could live forever? Some people say it could happen
sooner than you ever thought possible. Right now, life expectancy
is 75 years for men and 80 for women. One of the best known
futurists in the world, Ray Kurzweil, believes that one day,
not too far off in the future, humans could live to be 300
or even 400 years old.
