Over the last six months, I have read a great many articles on how a person could live to 100 years, or older. Getting to be a centurion is a very interesting subject, and is related to prevention of cancer in many ways.
My research has led me to conclude that preventing cancer and living to a very long life is divided into two different categories. It is a project that starts as young as possible, and extends throughout ones life. A good diet, exercise, good sleep, and a great lifestyle are all needed to create excellent health and a long life. On the opposing end, for most people, a poor diet, poor sleep habits, lack of exercise, and a poor lifestyle can produce a poor intestinal flora, poor immune system, be a precursor to disease, and shorten ones life.
These two different categories are related to many years of good grocery buying habits, discipline on eating, good sleep habits, and enjoying life with friends, pleasure, relaxation, and hopefully, enjoying the great country around us.
A recent article about a retired physician who was 100 years old stated several very important facts for living a long life. He was in active medical practice until he was 74 years old. He had a good diet, exercised regularly, and kept his brain active. He also was a vegetarian and ate no meat. Ate his age of 100, he was still mowing his lawn, and staying busy, which he said was essential for older people. Relaxation and reading was also one of his important daily functions. He read, even authored several short articles about living a centurion’s lifestyle.
He also listed several things which he thought were very helpful in living a busy, happy, long life. He said a person needs to eat a diet which contains many raw, fresh electromagnetic foods which prevent toxins, inflammation, and erosion of the small intestinal wall which allows toxins, bad bacteria, candida, parasites, and contaminants to get into the blood. He eats at least one salad each day. He said that he takes one to two tablespoons of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated oils every day. He also eats raw nuts, fermented foods, plus two eggs every other day.
The centurion also said he stays away from sugar, most carbohydrates, refined, and processed foods. He mentioned that with all the GMO foods, contaminants in food, and variations in drinks, that he stays away from altered foods and drinks.
He said “Americans drink way to much refined drinks, alcohol, and not enough raw, fresh juice and water.”
One of his important duties every day is to walk up two flights of stairs, plus he walks three to four times each week. He works in his yard, mows his lawn, and says that it is very relaxing.
Another thing he talked about was sleep. He said that an elderly person needs eight to nine hours of sleep each night. At night, a person’s diaphragm and head bones move the spinal fluid, to remove waste from a persons brain and spinal cord. This is especially good for older people to help prevent dementia.
The doctor mentioned how important it was for older people to get together for church and social gatherings. Picnics, family gatherings, plus reducing stress and relaxation are very important.
The article mentioned some other things that a centurions might do to stay healthy and keep a great immune system. Stay away from GMO foods, and GMO pesticides. Always wash raw, fresh vegetables with hydrogen peroxide or water, and use no vegetable oils on the grocery shelf. Also stay away from excess alcohol and smoking.
These are some of the great important things that older people eat and don’t eat to live a long time. Living a long life is not starting on a great diet when you are starting to get medicare. It starts as young as you are today. Hopefully, you may have started long ago. But if not, starting today is not too late. The healthier a person is today, and the healthier their lifestyle is, the better chance to live a very long time. Relax, stay busy, and enjoy life.
