Exchange of Ideas and Information for
Students of Aging
I began this new website because it is important that there be an exchange of ideas among serious students of aging. A few cases are illustrative.
A few months ago my old friend and hero John McCain died at the age of 81, with five of those years having been spent in a dungeon in Vietnam as a prisoner of war. His heroism is why I supported his run for the Presidency. His mother said “you should never have to bury your own son”. Her age is 107.
On the celebrity front, famous movie star Kirk Douglas has passed at the age 103. His wife Ann Buydens is alive at 100. Their son Michael Douglas, a very successful actor, is 75.
Here is a website detailing all living persons 100 years of age and older. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_living_centenarians
Here is a story about Olivia De Havilland, star of Gone with the Wind. I remember seeing this movie when the school bus brought my class to town to see it.
The book “The 100-Year Life : Living and Working in an Age of Longevity “ is a meticulously researched and documented book. The book deals with the reality of the 100 year life, while my website deals with how we can live healthy to 100 and beyond. I have written three books on this subject.
Students of aging should read this book by Michael Fossel MD, PHD. It has strongly influenced my views of aging. It led to my taking TA 65 every day. I believe that this, together with a strong program of exercise and weight control will enable most people to live to an age of at least 100.
Dr. Michael Fossel continues to do pioneering work.
See his recent article on dementias and age-related neurodegeneration.
They are (1) “Flat Belly for Life: A Holistic Guide to Living a Healthy, Purpose Driven Life into Your 100’s “, (2) “Flat Belly for Life Revisited “, and “Run / Walk for Your Life : Take TA 65 to Reverse Your Age”. These books reflect my involvement as a lawyer in getting TA 65 approved by the Federal Trade Commission.
While I think TA 65 is a terrific product. It bothers me that it is made only from the roots of The astragalus plant, which is grown only in China. Two years ago I spent a week in China as the guest of Chairman Shi, one of The richest billionaires in China. It is the only time I was ever driven around in a Rolls Royce limousine. At a luncheon I gave Chairman Shi a bottle of TA 65 as a token of my appreciation.
There are many supplements that I take for aging. However, I have severely cut back on them, saving myself thousands of dollars. The only prescription drug I take is Jardiance for my type 2 diabetes.
Also, our bodies are different. The purpose of this website is to provide an open forum for the exchange of information.
I do have my telomeres tested by TeloYears.com every year and my biological age is 14 years less than my chronological age for the second year in a row.
As we reach the era of the 100-year life, age discrimination is more of a problem. More and more people want to work into their seventies or even into their eighties. I am one of those people.
Therefore I registered the new domain www.noagediscrimination.com It contains the latest news on age discrimination.
Here is a great article about a 103 year young lady!
IT IS ALARMING THAT OUR GOVERNMENT IS NOW ATTEMPTING TO TAKE AWAY THE RIGHT TO DRIVE FROM OUR OLDER CITIZENS
Although the right to drive is one of our most cherished rights, government political bureaucracies are trying to deny this right. In my own case my driver’s license was suddenly suspended although I had no significant accidents since I was in undergraduate school at the University of Georgia.
I hope we can use this website to gather opposition to the efforts of politicians and bureaucrats to take away our driving rights. If you will send your information to me and I will publish it.
