Well- from the introduction you will have noted that the subject of the page is mainly health and the quest to live a 100 years. My views on that are simple. In order to have any success in achieving "respectable old age", the main goal must first be, to avoid getting disorders which are dangerous, killers so to speak and I think in this respect one has to prophylactically strenghten one´s defenses towards those ailments. I think that can be done. Having quite some experience with them- i.e. being a myocardial infarction and colon cancer survivor on top of a few other things, tends to help. One learns to be respectful with those things and does not under-estimate the "preventive" task or as my endocrinologist calls it - engage in risk management of your health- I agree with him on that- we disagree on the methods that are required for that "health risk management"
