Even before The Human Genome Project, scientists have predicted a ‘new age’ of biomedicine. Myriad small improvements continued to accumulate, but no great fulfilling promises have arrived. For nearly thirty very exciting years we have anxiously awaited some “Great Breakthrough”. Now, the waiting is over. This century, with good reason, has been labeled the “Century of Bio-Technology” and early fruits are finally ripening on the vine.
One major genetic control system has been found that manipulates several thousand genes which regulate metabolism from the fetus all the way through the aging process, and even in the cancer cell, albeit with a special caveat. From this regulatory control system, we have gained a much better understanding of the aging process, its natural consequences and the things that go wrong, and even more importantly, how to correct many of them.
For the past several decades,dmso cancer most of what we knew about the diseases of aging was disjointed, disconnected ‘pieces-parts’ full of potentials and enticements, but lacking a “glue,” a central unifying singularity. We now have that glue–a global hypothesis that knits these unconnected cuttings into a whole cloth that is mechanically definable. We have moved from correlation to causation; from best guesses to workable applications. As incredible as it may seem, our greatest killers, such as heart disease, cancer, type II diabetes, neuromuscular/vascular wasting and even aging itself is a single entity with many negative facets, each with its unique features. This even includes the extension of human life length beyond the normal maximum. Of course, we don’t know everything yet, just as we will never know everything about anything, but we finally know enough about this to call it a system. Once you have a system, you can lay intelligent plans. Prior to that, we are stuck with “best guesstimates.”
We will provide a brief outline of the theory here, but this document is primarily devoted to the practical applications of that theory-“What YOU can do”. These are the things you deploy to avoid these diseases while maximizing the potential to live longer than nature’s plan originally built into you. You will be pleasantly surprised by how simple it really can be. A lot of the complexities of the past go away because much of the “voodoo” and confusion go away.
A central theory of the diseases of aging does for biomedicine what E=MC squared did for physics. It allows the scales to fall from our eyes, and it permits us to peer through the halls of mirrors to the window overlooking the garden of understanding. These two authors have studied thousands of scientific papers from the last couple of decades, paying particular scrutiny to those of the last half dozen years, and again and again we find the global metabolic theory making sense of our perplexities. It is a most refreshing epiphany, because a dark and tortuous path has become straight and true in the dappled sunshine. That which was obfuscated is now perfectly clear.
Scientific papers written within the last few years are much more interpretable within this unifying framework. Very soon, these understandings will be known by legions of scientists and soon thereafter, by the world. This document and other documents we have recently published herald the coming of this new age of extended youth and vitality.
Before we launch into practical applications, let’s take a brief perusal of the theory. Aside from water and minerals, 95% of the flesh of all animal organisms, from single cell organisms, to sponges, to worms, to insects, to mice, and even to humans, is composed of four basic bio-chemicals: carbohydrates, fats, amino acids and nucleotides, all of which can be used either as fuel or as cell building materials. They can either be burned as fuel to obtain energy or knitted together in combination to make huge molecules that form the structures and functions of a new cell. The universal regulatory pathway manipulates the flow of these four main constituents and the energy balance of the cell to control the maintenance of the housekeeping functions in non-dividing cells and to provide energy and material flow into the building processes to make new cells. In the past, we knew much about the flow patterns but we didn’t know how the component systems were managed. Now we do know, and we are discovering how the regulatory pathway works to control the length of our lives through its rejuvenation, regenerative and degenerative processes.
