Rare Talk on Longevity - John McDougall MD
Aging is a normal part of life — a process that cannot be stopped or reversed; but age-associated diseases can be prevented and our functional lifespan can be prolonged.
But for how long?
The maximum human lifespan is believed to be about 125 years, but so far no one for certain has reached this limit.
The oldest person of authentic record was a French woman who lived to be 122 years old.
This is Dr. McDougall's full talk from our 2006 Healthy Lifestyle Expo, titled "Aging In Style."

You Don't Need to Add FAT to Absorb Nutrients (Part 3 of Nuts)
Have you ever been told you should eat some fat, like nuts or avocado, when you eat a salad or raw veggies, so that you absorb nutrients better?
That's nutrition advice from Kraft Foods Inc.
They created this nutrition advice to try to increase sales of Kraft's Good Seasons Italian Dressing line.
You might be interested to know that research NOT paid for by food corporations shows you don't have to add fat -- or worry about this issue at all.
Add nuts or avocados or other fats if you'd like; but they won't give you any necessary absorption benefits versus not adding them.

Nut Studies Are a Hoax (Part 2 of Nuts)
Have you ever heard that "nuts will make you live longer?"
Or that "nuts prevent heart attacks?"
Both of these statements - and many other claims about nuts - are based on very weak or non-existent evidence.
They come from researchers who've received a whole lot of money from the nut industry.
Today we bring you Part 2 in our multi-part video series on nuts. And this time, we name names of the researchers receiving millions from the nut industry to come up with dodgy studies. It's all about making highly questionable marketing claims.
We break it all down in this one-hour video.
And just for the record - I'm NOT anti-nut. I love nuts! But I AM anti-BS. I believe in people making informed decisions about their diet and health, which is why we're bringing you this series.
