If you are interested in 'The Elixir of Life' that is in the news, here is today's Telegraph report that an "elixir of life" biochemical has been discovered in the soil of Easter Island.
Throughout much of history there have been people who have sought an "elixir of life" to lengthen their lives - an anti-ageing potion. - Wikipedia article on this. As you will see in the Wikipedia article, sometimes these elixirs brought death, rather than an increase in longevity!
Today's 'elixir' appears to have lengthened the life of some mice - mice that were protected from infection. Whether it would lengthen human life is not known as yet. - That it would have undesirable side-effects is certain, since rapamycin, the so-called 'elixir of life', suppresses immunity to infection.
There is a completely safe, drug-free way to increase your longevity and at the same time to improve your health in a myriad other ways - that is to avoid eating salt and salty food.
You will also find, if you are overweight, that reducing salt reduces your excess weight.
Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, heart attack, vascular dementia, stroke, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver damage and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs, hunger or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
