McCusker also suggests grass-fed beef, fish oil and flaxseed for healthful fats and proteins. Another smart move is the addition into the diet of probiotics, which can be found in yogurt and kefir as well as nutritional supplements. (She prefers supplements over yogurt because they contain much higher amounts of probiotics.) There is evidence, McCusker says, that probiotics not only help digestive tract health but also help make skin healthy and happy. Other than yogurt and kefir, dairy is not recommended, she says.

Also, DNA tests of teeth reveal that some Paleo folks ate grains and legumes, foods eschewed by modern followers of the Paleo diet. Scientists have also found plaque in the arteries of about a third of mummies theyve examined. Levin also looked at studies of a modern hunter-gatherer group, the Hiwis of Venezuela and Colombia. This group hunts and collects 95 percent of their food. Theyre short, lethargic and unhealthy.

Some diets are doomed to fail

The reason has to do with the way the stomach detects and tells our brain how full we are. The results, published in the International Journal of Obesity, show that the nerves in the stomach that transmit signals of fullness to the brain seem to become desensitized after long-term consumption of a high-fat diet.

Healthful Living May Lengthen Telomeres And Lifespans

Terry Allen/Corbis The greenish-yellow tips on this human chromosome (No. 16) are telomeres. Terry Allen/Corbis It’s all about the little caps on our chromosomes called telomeres . They work like the plastic tips of shoelaces to protect the ends of chromosomes, the strings of genes in the heart of every cell that tell it what to do. Without telomeres, our cells would lose the ability to divide and would quickly die off . Scientists have been fascinated by telomeres for several decades. In 2009, Elizabeth Blackburn , an author of the new study, shared a Nobel Prize for pioneering work in the field. As people and other animals age, their telomeres get shorter and shorter a well-grounded observation that some scientists think is not only a marker of aging but a fundamental driver of senescence . Study author Dean Ornish of the University of California, San Francisco notes that things that are bad for us accelerate the shortening of telomeres.

Healthy Living

The scientists, from the University of California in the United States, examined changes in the mens telomeres, which are structures that sit at the ends of chromosomes. Telomeres stop DNA within chromosomes from being damaged, but as people grow older they become shorter and cells start to age and die more rapidly. Previous studies have linked the shortening of telomeres to a decrease in life expectancy and a greater risk of age-related diseases such as heart disease, vascular dementia, obesity, stroke, diabetes and various cancers. The new research found that in the group which adopted the lifestyle changes, telomeres lengthened by an average of 10 per cent over five years. The more positive the changes that the men made, the greater the increase in their telomeres lengths.
