    Post Re: What Makes Us Age?

    Final year of highschool (which is coming to an end very soon) soon to be my first year at one of Canada's best Unis I asume you are in the same "position" or are already into the first year. Correct?
    Well congrads on that, you Overachiever . The High School, College Transition is a memorable one. I am actually in my second year. Majoring in International Business. What do you plan to major in?

    I will slander the US as much as I like, its policies throughly annoy me. As for Canada in wars to come...the next elections will determine that. I also really don't think one should OVERestimate the US's military power and expendability.
    If WWIII is to come Canada would be the perfect place to go. Who would want to waste a Perfectly good Nuke on already Barren Land?

    NB was something else. Canada exemplifies everything America doesn't want to be. Had the Revolution not happened, we would live like them. We fought for Independence because we preferred the Restoration never happened and because of the snobbish Frogs and their dictatorial society. She wanted to rant and rave at Americans from her side of the border. Good for her.

    As far as I know antioxidants can "slow" down aging. Eating 50% less in calories increased the life span of rats by 2 fold but that doesn't seem practical in humans. Some Scientist is actually doing this using himself as a human "gineau pig".

    Could stem cells be used to increase human life?

    Personally I think someday scientists are going to discover a way to drastically slow down aging. Aging seems to be the only thing technology hasn't allowed us as of yet to conqueror. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could live for for thousands of years instead our emphermal 70. Imagine one would be able to observe, evolution, ice ages, rise and fall of empires.
    Gradual failure of our cells to accurately duplicate themselves. Imagine photocopying a photocopy of a photocopy of a photocopy etc. It eventually becomes quite blurred and indistinct. The same thing happens to our cells. By the age of 55 it starts to fail completely and this why 70 is a normal lifespan, 80 if you are in good health. Live beyond this and you risk becoming senile. Nobody except a very young person wants to live for thousands of years. As you get older you will realise why I say that. Solomon had it right when he said that "there is nothing new under the sun." One gradually wearies of life.

    I did not realise that you are divorced-your profile says 'single'.

    I think that you can customise it though. I did.

    This is a great post by Wuotan's Krieger (..he certainly had his moments! )

    Some interesting information from a professor in genetics:

    A nation is an organic thing, historically defined.
    A wave of passionate energy which unites past, present and future generations

    I still believe in the old saying: We are what we eat.
    Industrialized and fast foods are not healthy, we don't know what's in them.
