Healthy Eating Tips
In The Boomer Survivor Kit, I recommend a transition from meat and dairy staples to more vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. Here’s one article that discusses the risk of meat and dairy products, specifically highlighting the risk of consuming too much animal-based protein. Here’s another article that addresses the risk factors of ingredients that are associated with meats and dairy products and the need to create substitutes for those ingredients. Lastly, Here’s a video that addresses the need for more flexibility in your diet with more vegetables and fruit, but not strictly vegetarian.
My last blog focused on telomeres (the tips of your chromosomes) and how they work to protect you from DNA errors and subsequent illnesses. The blog also highlighted how the length of your telomere is correlated with the length of your life. According to recent research, the longer your telomeres, the longer your life. This article also discusses longevity and some surprising factors that can clarify your chances of leading a long, healthy life. If you can just incorporate some of these recommendations, you will become healthier and live longer.

I just do not think it is the solution to a meaningful, balanced life.
