Outfox Your “ Aging ” Gene
Some people just seem to have all the luck when it comes to getting old. Like my 83-year-old patient who drinks a little too much Scotch, but still has a 3-handicap in golf. Or the 108-year-old who goes through a gallon of ice cream every week. If you ask them how they do it, they’ll give credit to their good genes… and there is some truth to it. We all have something called a FOXO3 gene. It helps protect us against aging. German researchers at the Christian-Albrechts University studied the FOXO3 gene in 380-plus centenarians, more than 600 people in their 90s, and more than 700 people between the ages of 60 and 7...

Cation exchange capacity analyzed for nursery pine bark substrates
(American Society for Horticultural Science) Researchers determined the variability of cation exchange capacity in different batches of pine bark and studied the influence of particle size, substrate pH, and peat amendment on CEC. Part of the variation in CEC among batches was attributed to differences in particle size. Data showed that substrate pH within a range of 4.02-6.37 did not affect CEC, and that pine bark substrate CEC does not necessarily increase when amended with sphagnum peat.

Are There Natural Remedies for Cognitive Aging?
More than 30 countries now have a life expectancy of 80 or more, a dramatic increase over the last half century. This is good news, but it also brings challenges.

Diet, exercise and mental activity all play a role in healthy aging, but there are also natural pharmaceuticals that may be of use in staving off decline. Psychological scientists Con Stough and Matthew Pase of Swinburne University of Technology, in...
