    Path to Longevity (new book) by Luigi Fontana

    Hi Khurram! After reading the Table of Contents posted by Sibiriac, I bought the Amazon kindle version of the book, for a little over $11. -- Saul
  3. Dear ALL, I've just received the letter below, from Dr. Luigi Fontana. It describes his latest book, and includes an attached video. Enjoy, -- Saul Dear Saul, how are you? Hope you are doing well in these difficult times. I am writing to bring to your kind attention a new book, entitled the ‘Path to Longevity’, that summarizes more than 20 years of research, clinical practice and my accumulated knowledge on healthy longevity. Here, a video interview with Sunrise TV that encapsulates some of the key topics: https://youtu.be/bho1IfJqCBw My ultimate dream is that by reading this book people might start to examine their current level of physical and psychological health, and their subconscious expectations for the future. I hope that by becoming more aware of their full potential they will unlock a profoundly felt need for transformation and possibly help the world become a better place.

    Limiting threonine and tryptophan

    Hi Sibiriac! Of course my diet is plant based -- but it isn't vegan. I eat a small amount of fish daily -- usually 3oz of raw salmon, or 2.5oz of hamachi (yellowtail). Today may be an exception -- it's Father's Day in the US, and my wife and I will eat out in a restaurant. I restrict protein -- biological age is not the same as chronological age. The Finger Lakes region of NYS (which includes Rochester, NY) is in stage 3 of the reopening -- indoor restaurants are now open. Happily, we have very little COV-19 infection. -- Saul

    Limiting threonine and tryptophan

    Varies. But I usually eat some salmon or other fish. But no grains, eggs or dairy -- also rich sources of methionine. -- Saul

    Limiting threonine and tryptophan

    For those of us interested in health and life extension, reduced methionine availability is a plus, rather than a minus. So the study confrims: (1) Don't eat rice (high calories; higher methionine content than desired in rice protein. Same problem with all grains.) (2) Eat your chickpeas and/or other legumes; they should be your primary source of protein -- rather than grain and/or animal protein. -- Saul
  8. First: We don't know what all the proteins in blood are. That alone may be a difficult, if not impossible, task.
  9. Well, it's new to all of us. Certainly sounds interesting. Possibly investigators might figure out what are the proteins that are best to reduce (by this dilution procedure). Exactly where it will lead remains uncertain. But I'm sure that there will be some $$ made by professionals who present videos of their : "dilution lab": "pay me money and I'll dilute your blood". -- Saul
  10. I read the full article. There is no mention of saving the platelets in the half of the body's blood that is discarded. If those platelets were to be saved, how? I'm no plegmologist (spelling🙂?), but I think that may be hard to do, without damaging the platelets (probably not a good idea). Also: The article claims that, after discarding half the blood and replacing with saline and albumin, the remaining cells are activated, producing more useful protein. Perhaps the rejuvenated blood might also easily replace the discarded platelets. -- Saul
  11. Fascinating! One possible complication: When diluting the blood, you are also removing half of your platelets. There is evidence that CR causes mild "anemia" -- a slight deficiency in blood platelets -- at least that is true for me. Probably not a big problem -- quite possibly the dilution procedure will also jack up platelet formation. -- Saul
  12. CRON, for many years. My Endocrinologist also thinks it's my diet. I'll be getting new T tests soon. -- Saul
  13.
