Proteins under study: From studies in yeast, sirtuins (sir2 proteins) are believed to have some effects on aging, on cell death, on stress resistance (such as in situations of food scarcity), etc... Researchers are trying to find out if there are anti-aging effects in mammals. Some believe resveratrol activates a sirtuin and possibly extends lifespan, but so far research with mammals has not shown any such benefit. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

None: They have not made such a product. Nutritional anti-oxidants are real and popular, but overall, I think that good living practices - food, rest, activity level, companionship, interests - all of good quality and all in moderation are probably the best ways to feel and look as young as you can. Some aging patterns are inherited, but living well is always a good idea. Read more

What does alcohol do to the body? Does it speed up the aging process? I'm an aspiring athlete, so could drinking hurt my career?
Alcohol risks: FDA wouldn't approve alcohol for human consumption as it is hepato-toxic (liver cirrhosis). Aging per se in not an issue.

Mri with findings of mild chronic white mater supratentorially in periventricular region. Is this something to worry about or normal aging process.
Mild ischemic change: Signal abnormalities in the supratentorial white matter, which are best appreciated on the flair sequence of the MRI exam, in general are not very specific and may be the result of various processes.

No real evidence: You'll hear conflicting claims even from informed physicians as to whether omega 3's offer a real cardiovascular benefit. My own reading of the last three big studies leads me to skepticism but others I respect here will disagree. They has use as anti-inflammatories. There's nothing whatever to suggest they actually slow the biological clock independent of vascular health. Read more
Cortical atrophy: Yes. The brain is like a muscle. If we don't use muscles, then they atrophy. Likewise with the brain we need to keep it stimulated with mental and physical exercises. Performing fine motor tasks or those that require significant focus increase brain function. Toxins such as tobacco and alcohol increase the rate of brain atrophy. Check out Lumosity. Com.
