HEALTHY LIVING FOR BRAIN AND BODY

Tuesday, April 11, 2017 -- As we age, our bodies change. For example, my wife recently informed me that my hair is no longer blond but grey with a few streaks of blond. My hands resting on the keyboard now have wrinkles that were not there a few years ago. I find it more difficult to see while driving at night, especially when it is raining. We each age somewhat differently depending, in part, on our genes. Those who come from a family where most relatives lived well into their 80s or 90s may expect to have a similar life span. Similarly, those who were born into a family with a history of cancer or heart disease may want to be vigilant about their own health. We cannot change our genes or the environment in which we grew up, but we can control our lifestyle.

HEALTHY BODIES, HEALTHY BRAINS

Tuesday, March 28, 2017 -- There are some ways in which we age that we all have in common, and many of these are outside of our control. I’ve noticed, for example, that, as I grow older, my hair is thinner and has touches of gray, my skin has some wrinkles and my eyes focus less well when reading. As individuals, though, we each age somewhat differently, and how this takes place depends in part on our genes. We are each genetically predisposed to age in a certain way. For example, some families tend to live a long time, aging well into their 90s or even longer. Other families tend to develop diseases that may limit the lifespan. These things are all beyond our control.
