Stop saying that higher protein intakes cause renal failure, you are wrong. From the WHO/FAO:
“…the suggestion that the decline of glomerular filtration rate that occurs with advancing age in healthy subjects can be attenuated by reducing the protein content
in the diet has no foundation.”
From the IOM in setting the last DRI:
“…protein content of diet is not related to progressive decline in kidney function with age.”

A causal link? No evidence:

Let's talk about what we can learn from family #caregivers during the #COVID19 pandemic. Can the friends and families who care for someone else teach us something about #resilience and #wellbeing? 1/11

#Caregiving can have a positive impact on our lives - helping us to feel valued as part of a care team, closer to those in our care. When we #care, we can have an improved sense of #purpose & even extend our life expectancy 2/11

While we're buying ALL the toilet paper, have we noticed that the #hiddenheroes in our midst -- the #caregivers might have something to offer having been through these same worries before? 3/11

,@cpannetie is correct! This is the Mayo Clinic’s James Kirkland, whose research focuses on the impact of cellular aging, or senescence, on age-related dysfunction and chronic diseases.
Kirkland is working to develop methods to remove senescent cells to slow, stop or ever reverse age-related chronic diseases—and he's having a lot of success.

This is why you age.

1. Genomic instability
2. Telomere attrition
3. Epigenetic alterations
4. Loss of proteostasis
5. Deregulated nutrient-sensing
6. Mitochondrial dysfunction
7. Cellular senescence
8. Stem cell exhaustion
9. Altered intercellular comms.
Now that we know the causes, we can find solutions to them. #Aging is rapidly becoming a curable illness.

Info originally published in the Abundance Inside newsletter by @PeterDiamandis
1. Genomic instability: As we age, the environment and normal cellular processes cause damage to our genes. Activities like flying at high altitude, for example, expose us to increased radiation or free radicals. This damage compounds over the course of life.

Strength training and regular aerobic activity help prevent many chronic and degenerative diseases related to #aging.

Here are 5 #health benefits that strength training can provide to older adults...

A stronger body can withstand the #stress of daily activities.

#strengthtraining
2. Chronic Pain Relief

Many #chronicpain issues are a result of muscle weakness and muscle imbalances.

Strength exercises can correct these imbalances to restore the function and integrity of the joints.
