  3. https://www.mayoclinicproceedings.org/article/S0025-6196(21)00475-4/fulltext Based on this study too much exercise can increase mortality. I find the relatively low level of 10 hours a week increasing mortality surprising. The one factor here is intensity because these are sports activities which can be very demanding. Or perhaps it’s just one more flawed study. Compared with the reference group of 2.6 to 4.5 hours of weekly leisure-time sports activities, we found an increased risk for all-cause mortality for those with 0 hours (hazard ratio , 1.51; 95% CI, 1.29 to 1.76), for those with 0.1 to 2.5 hours (HR, 1.24; 95% CI, 1.05 to 1.46), and for those with more than 10 hours (HR, 1.18; 95% CI, 1.00 to 1.39) of weekly leisure-time sports activities. These relationships were generally consistent with additional adjustments for potential confounders among subgroups of age, sex, education, smoking, alcohol intake, and body mass index, when the first 5 years of follow-up were excluded, and for cardiovascular disease mortality

    Is David Sinclair a hypster?

    The Fountain of Youth has Been Discovered!!! David Sinclair loves to IMPLY that he’s reversed aging by 10 Years! He’s smart enough not to be caught in a trap cause he knows it ain’t really true but it makes great headlines to be sure as we see in many of his talks. “ I was shocked how well just the simple changes to what I ate and how I lived were able to have such an age-reversal effect. I would have thought that I’d need a potent medicine that we were working on, but I didn’t need that. There’s a lot more that you can do than I think a lot of people realize. But, it really only works, as I’ve witnessed, if you have the feedback. If you go on a diet or you take this or that, or you eat certain foods, you really don’t have any good way of knowing if it’s working. We just hope. And that’s what I did until InsideTracker came along. But when InsideTracker was actually showing me that what I was doing was not enough, that in fact, maybe some of what I was doing wasn’t great for me, I was able to correct that and it’s like I’ve got another 10 years of research in me.” cited from: https://blog.insidetracker.com/david-sinclair-harvard-anti-aging-success
  7. Development of an EAT-Lancet index and its relation to mortality in a Swedish population https://academic.oup.com/ajcn/advance-article/doi/10.1093/ajcn/nqab369/6427338?inf_contact_key=defc54727afb117669da6c14cf1b90ac16358d5485884e2f31e6019a0d26c8b0 about as good as your gonna get in dietary studies comparing diet components and mortality. Bottom line: 25% lower mortality in the group of those who ate the most vegetables, legumes, nuts, fruits and whole grains! Ho Hum indeed!
  8. My take on it is simple. If you can afford the extra cost EAT ORGANIC! Why piss around with all kinds of chemicals. Who really knows what they do to us. If ya can’t afford the extra cost do a 2% salt solution and wash your stuff that’s not peelable.

    Newish to CR for longevity - critique my diet?

    Sounds good but I would suggest utilizing cron o meter app to be certain.

    Is 15.5 Bmi too Dangerous ?

    Part of the problem with BMI data is confounding. Very thin are more likely to be malnourished, smokers, druggies and just plain unhealthy causing poor appetite for instance. A person like Michael Rae I doubt has any concerns wrt his low BMI as he is very careful to be adequately nourished and is not an addict or sickly.

    Is 15.5 Bmi too Dangerous ?

    The most important factor is nutritional adequacy. A low bmi could mean considerable malnourishment. Do you use cron-o- meter to assess your nutrients levels. It’s important to be sure the foods you list there are complete in the nutrional data. When you add a food make sure it has 78 listed nutrients. Protein is especially critical for someone with a low bmi. You don’t want to be deficient. But ultimately I’d be very careful that you are getting adequate nutrition across the board. https://cronometer.com/
  12. Quote from the study “strong positive correlation between dietary protein and mitochondria, generating oxidative stress at high protein intake” no details on this in the article. Has anyone read the full article
