Internal 'clock' makes some people age faster and die younger – regardless of lifestyle | Science | The Guardian
Scientists have found the most definitive evidence yet that some people are destined to age quicker and die younger than others - regardless of their lifestyle.

The findings could explain the seemingly random and unfair way that death is sometimes dealt out, and raise the intriguing future possibility of being able to extend the natural human lifespan.

“You get people who are vegan, sleep 10 hours a day, have a low-stress job, and still end up dying young,” said Steve Horvath, a biostatistician who led the research at the University of California, Los Angeles. “We’ve shown some people have a faster innate ageing rate.”

(297) Wer glücklich ist kauft nicht - Vortrag Prof. Hüther - YouTube
Denkmuster. Schwer heraus zu brechen! Kein kind komt als konsumer zur welt. Nacheifern wer erflogreich erscheint. Grunderfahrung Wachstum. Neugier. Dopamine. Entdecken und Gestalten und Frei sein. Plus Bindungssystem. Aber Welterfahrung ist anders als im Bauch der Mutter. Beziehungsschmerzen gibt es! Begeisterung, und emotionen helfen beim lernen! Frei und Autonom ungleisch die Schule. Wem es gut geht kauft kein schrott den er nicht braucht um andere menschen zu beindrucken die er nicht mag oder kennt.

About Your Skin: What Nina Jablonski thinks you should know about your body’s biggest organ.
[ race is not biological, race and ethnicity is a social construct. baby/kids are not born innate racists. homophobes. transphobic. xenophobic nor antisemitic. ] [...] To most humans, races are creations of the mind that have social reality and that often have physical traits associated with them. So race is strictly a social construction? Yes, but that doesn’t make it any less real. When people identify as belonging to a certain group, the biological or philosophical status of the race doesn’t really matter. So race is a very durable construct and people have strong racial identities that are often tied up with physical appearance, but also include a lot of cultural aspects. [...] It’s very important that you create slaves as an inferior class as people. You dehumanize them by saying they are inherently immoral, inherently incapable of developing true human qualities. They are sub-human. This makes the whole slave trade much more palatable.

The Benefits of Weight Training for Kids - NYTimes.com
And that fact, from both a physiological and philosophical standpoint, is perhaps why strength training for children is so important, a growing chorus of experts says. “We are urban dwellers stuck in hunter-gatherer bodies,” said Lyle Micheli, M.D., “That’s true for children as well as adults. There was a time when children ‘weight trained’ by carrying milk pails and helping around the farm. Now few children, even young athletes, get sufficient activity” to fully strengthen their muscles, tendons and other tissues. “If a kid sits in class or in front of a screen for hours and then you throw them out onto the soccer field or basketball court, they don’t have the tissue strength to withstand the forces involved in their sports. That can contribute to injury.”

BBC News - The myth of the eight-hour sleep
Medical advice about ... 8 hour full, continuous sleep may be flawed. [...] [...] "Today, most people seem to have adapted quite well to the eight-hour sleep, but Ekirch believes many sleeping problems may have roots in the human body's natural preference for segmented sleep as well as the ubiquity of artificial light. This could be the root of a condition called sleep maintenance insomnia, where people wake during the night and have trouble getting back to sleep, he suggests. [...] "For most of evolution we slept a certain way," says sleep psychologist Gregg Jacobs. "Waking up during the night is part of normal human physiology. [...] "Many people wake up at night and panic," he says. "I tell them that what they are experiencing is a throwback to the bi-modal sleep pattern." &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-17193783
