How to Be Old and Healthy

According to Dr. Kunin, "Until lately it was believed that the best, and perhaps the only, way to achieve a healthy old age is via genetics, i.e. as a gift of nature. The search for the elixir of life or the fountain of youth, on the other hand, reflects a nurturing approach to longevity. The nature-nurture debate about human traits is ongoing but the current trend is increasingly in favor of nurture, as in nutrition. We have arrived at a consensus on diet and aging: intake of fresh fruits and vegetables can increase longevity and decrease disease."

"The science behind this consensus is the free radical theory of cell damage as proposed by Dr. Denham Harman in 1956. Free radicals, molecules with an unpaired electron, are generated by the process of normal body chemistry but they can react with the enzymes, membranes and even the nucleic acids within cells, thus causing damage that shows up as loss of function and withered appearance typical of the aging process."

On our next program, Dr. Kunin reveals how fifty years of research has led him to discover that Methylation is the key to better health.

The Importance of Methylation

Methylation refers to the controlled transfer of methyl group, made up of a carbon atom and three hydrogen atoms. Such movement of carbon atoms goes on in every cell and tissue of the body, for methylation is involved in hundreds of chemical reactions that regulate cell energy, healing, immunity and genetic expression of DNA and RNA.

Hundreds of molecular products change physically and functionally in the microscopic world of cellular biochemistry. Methylation is a central feature of adaptation to the every-changing physical and chemical conditions of life. There are about 400 known methyl transferase reactions that produce vital products that affect our health, quality of life and survival.
