The mega-rich are not like you and me, because the mega-rich have access to supplements, treatments, replacement therapies and surgeries we do not.

Some before and after pictures of tech billionaires makes the case.

Let’s work to make sure we get what they got.

Here’s an autopsy of an obese woman. She died of heart failure in her 50s.

Try not to be obese.


This video is not easy to watch. I turned away from the screen several times. Then, just quit watching altogether. This is an actual autopsy, of an actual human. You may prefer not to watch at all.

Still more research on the amazing potential of omega 3 fatty acids — for life extension, yes, and to fight against stroke, Alzheimer’s, and other maladies associated with aging.

The science:

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a key essential Omega-3 fatty acid, produces signaling molecules called docosanoids in response to disruptions in the state of equilibrium within cells caused by injury or disease. Neuroprotectin D1 (NDP1) is a docosanoid that the Bazan lab discovered and found protects neurons by controlling which and how certain genes in the retina and brain respond.

The payoff:

Cells die through a variety of mechanisms. Contributors include a family of reactive oxygen species – compounds formed continuously as by-products of aerobic metabolism such as from reactions to drugs and environmental toxins, or when the levels of antioxidants are diminished creating oxidative stress, as well as inflammation and the disease process. Cell death is considered to be reversible until a first “point of no return” checkpoint is passed. The authors describe how NPD1 acts to stop cells from passing that checkpoint in cell death activation pathways including apoptosis, necrosis, necroptosis, pyroptosis, and pyronecrosis, among others.
