Recently I've become convinced of the potential for probiotics.  Using the right amount and kind of microbes, we could be able to optimize our bodily functions.  Also:  a long-run bet would be on nano-probes.

Out of the choices listed I would say dietary restriction of 
polyunsaturated fatty acids, most notably lipid peroxides
or rancid fats.

Membrane pacemaker theory

"Membrane fatty acid composition is a little appreciated 
but important correlate of the rate of aging of animals 
and the determination of their longevity" - A.J. Hulbert

Explaining longevity of different animals: 
is membrane fatty acid composition the missing link?

Transpower (8/3/2014)
Oscar2u, we can use energy to reduce entropy.  This must come from the outside, to compensate for what is degrading on the inside.  I just got back from the supermarket this morning; I'm amazed at how awful most people look.  They are doing nothing to compensate for entropy.  The very long-lived plants must have "figured out" how to take in exactly the right nutrients to repair their cells.  As it stands now, orthomolecular medicine is mostly trial and error.  In the future I'd expect there to be body scans which will tell us exactly what we need.




Hi Trans, I agree with you about how awful so many look a the supermarket. And the people using those NOW readily available motorized shopping cart wheel chairs. Of course SOME need them. But I do see MOST of these people walk in and set themselves down for a motorized shopping experience. And when necessary stand up and reach for what they desire. What a pathetic society we are becoming.
   But my main point is: How is it older men can produce healthy offspring ? How is it their sperm cells have not deteriorated along with the rest of their cells. I think that fact and related stem cell research may or will provide the REAL answers to LONGEVITY. Everything else seems to me stop gap measures that at best can add a few decades to a person`s life. I include BHT as such.   ...Oscar

Oscar2u:  I have read that sperm can degrade due to lack of anti-oxidants.  And, yes, I'm dismayed at the state of health of most Americans. The knowledge is there; there is no excuse.

Wild Oats is a grocery chain in Utah.  They sell mainly organic foods.  The people I see there seem very unhealthy as they buy their organic veggies.  Maybe they're trying after a lifetime of unhealthy habits.  I think Tom said it best:  meditation, exercise and low calorie eating is 90% of what keeps up alive longer.

OTOH there are unhealthy-looking people in most places in the US.

Whether all of them actually are unhealthy or not is another story. For example, some people think that people without a tan or those who are thin look unhealthy, when their blood work and other physical factors may be good. Even women without makeup get comments about how tired they look.

There are a lot of unhealthy-appearing shoppers to be observed at supermarkets, convenience stores, Walmart. There are a number of obese people in motorized carts, yet one doesn't know whether underlying disease is what made them immobile, which then lead to the development of obesity, or if their obesity lead to their immobility.

Also, disability is more visible since the implementation of laws that mandate wheelchair accessibility.

http://ask.lef.org/12458//How-do-you-rate-your-health?Keywords=poll Not many of our group rate their health as excellent.

Yes, poor health could drive people to try a better diet, organic juicing, etc. Our Wild Oats here in Florida got bought out by Whole Foods Market, which is rather expensive.

Yes, DDye, Whole Foods Market is rather expensive.  I'm sticking with Giant Supermarket, which has a great selection at tolerable prices.

My guess is that while all the factors listed are interdependently contributory to extending healthy life, none trumps the variables associated with the field of epigenetics...gene expressions based upon inheritance and an individual's environmental exposure, quality and quantity of dietary intake, exercise regimen / degree of athleticism, positive attitude and lastly, nutriceuticals / vitamins. Access to high quality healthcare due to insurance coverage is playing more and more of an important role in facilitating mental / physical health as well; annual check ups, lipid profiles, sugar profiles, dental health...we are each dealt a hand of cards and must play it more skillfully as we age...those who smoke, waddle instead of walk, express negativity and/or alienate others, are most risk for early mortality following unhealthy mortality...

In the long run, I think that regenerative medicine will become very important.
