Will Self: The trouble with my blood | Books | The Guardian
As we walked down the grotty staircase of Guy's Hospital Tower from the consultation where she'd been informed of how radical her surgery would need to be, she turned to me and said: "I'm so lucky. If it was 25 years ago, or I was somewhere else in the world, I'd've just received a death sentence." I was less sanguine – metaphorically speaking. I felt distracted and doomy; I was a dilatory carer – and at times seemingly wilfully inept. I could just about manage the basics: the feeding and dressing of our two younger children, and the forcing upon her of increasingly unwanted cups of tea. Advertisement It didn't help that we seemed to be at the centre of a cancer cluster: one friend was dying of leukaemia in Hammersmith hospital, another was in the process of being diagnosed, a third had had half his throat and jaw chopped out. I fully expected cancer myself. [ Polycythemia vera - mutation of cell X. repair mechanism failed. telomere caps fizzled out. disease of OAP. ]

Chemistry Nobel: Lindahl, Modrich and Sancar win for DNA repair - BBC News
Their work uncovered the mechanisms used by cells to repair damaged DNA - a fundamental process in living cells and important in cancer. [...] DNA is open to an onslaught of different phenomena that can generate defects in our genomes. UV radiation and molecules known as free radicals can cause damage. Furthermore, defects can arise when DNA is copied during cell division - a process that occurs millions of times each day in our bodies. "Cigarette smoke contains small reactive chemicals, which bind to the DNA and prevent it from being replicated properly - so they are mutagens. And once there is damage in the DNA this can cause diseases including cancer," said Prof Lindahl.

NHS could be 'overwhelmed' by people with long-term medical conditions | Society | The Guardian
The soaring number of people with long-term medical conditions [chronic] is threatening to "overwhelm" the NHS [...] The challenges posed by patients with chronic medical conditions are so great that they represent the "healthcare equivalent to climate change" and must force the NHS to undertake a major rethink of how it cares for such patients, Dr Martin McShane says in an interview with the Guardian. [...] 70% of the NHS's £110bn budget – £77bn – as well as £10.9bn of the £15.5bn spent on social care in England, [...] NHS will not bridge the £30bn gap that it fears will have emerged by 2020 between its budget and the volume of care needed [...] a healthy patient costs the NHS about £288 a year, those with one long-term condition cost an estimated £783, those with two cost £1,521 // [More doesnt stop sink overflowing! stop the faucet of new chronically sick people.

Age of menopause 'controllers' found - BBC News
Damage corrected. Comparing the DNA of nearly 70,000 women allowed the researchers to identify the differences between those starting the menopause early and late. The team at Exeter and Cambridge universities showed that at least two repair mechanisms were involved. The first is used when the eggs are being formed and the woman's DNA is being broken, rearranged and repaired. The second corrects damage, caused by factors such as smoking or alcohol, throughout a woman's life. Both would influence the number of viable eggs a woman has. //&!

Rare 'healthy' smokers' lungs explained - BBC News
The analysis of more than 50,000 people showed favourable mutations in people's DNA enhanced lung function and masked the deadly impact of smoking. The Medical Research Council scientists say the findings could lead to new drugs to improve lung function. But not smoking will always be the best option, they say. [...] The habit also increases the risk of heart disease and cancers, which are not considered in this study. The scientists also uncovered parts of the genetic code which were more common in smokers than non-smokers. They seem to alter the brain's function and how easily someone can become addicted to nicotine, although that still needs to be confirmed.

Do You Trust Larry Page? - Stratechery by Ben Thompson
Given the fact that Alphabet née Google is the second most valuable enterprise in the world, it’s striking to consider Larry Page’s 2014 assessment of the company he co-founded with Sergey Brin: I think we’ve not succeeded as much as we’d like. [...] Even Google’s famously far-reaching mission statement, to “organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”, is not big enough for what he now has in mind. The aim: to use the money that is spouting from its search advertising business to stake out positions in boom industries of the future, from biotech to robotics.

Heart disease plus diabetes can knock more than a decade off your life | Society | The Guardian
“An individual in their 60s who has both conditions [diabetes and heart disease] has an average reduction in life expectancy of about 15 years.” Men of 60 with any two of the cardiometabolic conditions studied lost 12 years of life on average. The lifespan of those with all three conditions was reduced by 14 years. For women aged 60, the corresponding estimates were 13 years and 16 years of reduced life expectancy. The effects were even more dramatic at younger ages. Men of 40 with all three conditions could expect to have their life cut short by 23 years and women by 20 years. // - Old before your time.

Old before your time? People age at wildly different rates, study confirms | Science | The Guardian
“Already, before midlife, individuals who were ageing more rapidly were less physically able, showed cognitive decline and brain ageing, self-reported worse health, and looked older,” the scientists write. // &! ie one evidence, whole plant food diet (vegan, no processed foods) mimics caloric restriction, thus lowers speed/progress of aging processes. and animal protein does increase it, as well as processed fast and junk food (mix of fats, sugars, processed carbs without fiber) which hits the insulin pump hard. and evidence has shown that pancreas has limited amount of cells to produce insulin - once they gone, age related diabetes is here; // &!

Herzinfarkte und Schlaganfälle: OECD-Studie zu Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen - SPIEGEL ONLINE

min15 diet slows or speeds up ageing. Intermittent fasting ie once a month +3 days. cheat would be juice fast or broth. but here is the kicker, whole food plant based diet (vegan) does mimic parts of fasting, evidence in seen in certain factors that get activated when you really do fast. slowing down the burn rate of the many reactors (cells) we have. slowing down the cell division & thus keeping telomere's intact for longer. see also epigenetics. stress does age u. stress in many forms. same with methionine restriction - - The low-methionine content of vegan diets may make methionine restriction feasible as a life extension strategy. || min 23:00 chemotherapy does accelerate ageing and shows side effects a decade down the rate. ie higher rate of bone cancer occurrence. // min 41 stem cell therapy, currently used in focused approach vs future of preventative supplementation. ie using own blood plasma injected in face 2 increase collagen production

Grüne Kosmetik: Naturkosmetik Inhaltsstoffe wichtige Fragen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Wie ist die Wirkung? Gerade wenn es um Anti-Aging geht, hegen Verbraucher oft Zweifel, ob die konventionelle Kosmetik mit ihren hochpreisigen Hightech-Produkten nicht doch die besseren Faltenkiller zu bieten hat. Werner Voss winkt ab. In seinem Labor in Münster untersucht der Dermatologe jedes Jahr an die 3000 Produkte. Sein Fazit: "Der Alterungsprozess lässt sich mit keinem Mittelchen, das man von außen auf die Haut aufträgt, aufhalten." Wie knitterig jemand aussieht, hängt zu 90 Prozent von seinen Genen ab, zu 10 Prozent von der Ernährung, davon, ob man raucht, Alkohol trinkt, sich in die Sonne knallt. Es ist eigentlich nur möglich, der Haut Feuchtigkeit zuzuführen, dann sieht sie praller aus. Doch das kann laut Voss jedes solide Gemisch aus Fett und Wasser - die Grundlage einer jeden Creme. Es scheint also egal zu sein, ob man zur herkömmlichen Creme mit Silikonöl als Fettkomponente greift oder der natürlichen mit Pflanzenöl.

An Unstoppable Killer: New Research Suggests Cancer Can't Be Eradicated : NPR
The sensationalist assertions made in this article (particularly in the headline) don't follow from the results that the article describes. Part of the blame for this sensationalism seems to fall at the feet of the original scientist himself (Bosch). He makes an unfounded leap from the biological result that cancer seems to be an intrinsic property of genetic processes in cells (and the statements "You have to interfere with fundamental pathways", "It's a web of interactions" and "It's very difficult to do") to the assertion "will probably never be completely eradicated". Difficult is not the same as impossible. ||>> how we eat, how active we are, and our living environment (pollution and stress) is itself a multiplying factor whether or not we die of old age or of cancer or bc of complications of toxic medical cancer treatment. Period. Putting genetics out for the picture here. // via
