Scientists Crack Code of How to Live Past 100: Vegetarianism, Religion, Good Genes

They tend to eat vegetarian, exercise regularly, don't drink alcohol, and manage their stress
by Brian Merchant, Brooklyn
New York - Science & Technology
A group of US scientists studying human longevity believe they've gathered some invaluable evidence in the quest to predict which people will live to be older than 100. Based on genetic 'signposts', the scientists have worked out a mathematical model that determines a person's chance of living to be a centenarian. To gather the data, they looked at the biggest study yet done on centenarians, and found that there were common lifestyle choices and habits amongst those who lived longest: Vegetarianism, avoidance of alcohol, and a strong religion, to name a few. Beyond that though, it's up to having the right genes . . .

The BBC has more on the study:

"only one in 6,000 people in industrialised countries reaches such a ripe old age. And 90% them are still disability free by the age of 93. The researchers now think they have cracked the genetic secret of this longevity.

They identified genetic markers that are "most different" between centenarians and randomly selected individuals ... "We tested our model in an independent set of centenarians and achieved an accuracy of 77%," explained Professor Sebastiani. "So out of 100 centenarians we could correctly predict the outcome of 77."
"Their work builds on a previous study, which looked at a group of the longest-living Americans: Seventh Day Adventists. They were found to have the highest average life expectancy, at 88 years. One of the researchers explains the significance of that finding: "They get there by virtue of the fact that they have a religion that asks them to be vegetarian, they regularly exercise, they don't drink alcohol, they tend to manage their stress well through religion and time with family and they don't smoke."

But in order to make it 10 or more years longer, "genetics plays an increasingly important role."
The scientists are now setting to work devising a website that would allow the public to enter personal data in order to find out how long the model predicts they'll live. Which is kind of creepy. But also useful -- such a tool could eventually play a role in helping people prepare treatments or therapy plans accordingly. Perhaps if you knew how long your genes may allow you to live would act as a motivator for pursuing healthy eating and living habits. Of course, it could depress the hell out of you, pushing you into living a life of excess and indiscretion as well ...

Dimona books ticket to finals with win over Penticon

The Dimona Judeans return to the Championship
By Gil Nehamkin

The Dimona Judeans sealed the first spot in next week's Israel Softball League finals with a 5-2 victory over Penticon Sunday night.

In a close-fought battle, the pitching of ageless wonder Yaron Ben Israel proved too much for Penticon as he struck out 12 and walked none. Ami Baran pitched well for Penticon, but in the seventh inning Dimona finally took advantage of Baran's sore shoulder and put the game out of reach.

KNN Green Tips

The more awareness we bring to our relationship with Yah’s Holy Creations the healthier, safer and more in harmony with Yah and the Creations our lives become

Water Conservation

A family of 4 can use up to 1,000 litres of water a day. Being a little more careful of our water consumption we can reduce this to only 100 litres a day.

►Check for leaks. One drip of water per second wastes 4 litres of water a day
►wash dishes in a bowl not under constant running water
►Run your washing machine on full loads only; a full load uses less water than 2 half loads. Each cycle uses up to 100 litres of water!
►Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth: running water for 1 minute uses up to 10 litres!
►Consider the amount of water you use in your garden. In 30 minutes a water sprinkler uses as much water as a family of four in a day, or 600 ml every two seconds

General Tips

►Eat enzyme rich foods and organically grown food as an investment in your health
►Freeze leftovers. Never throw food away if it can be prevented
►Grow sprouts and herbs indoors. Sprouting is a very inexpensive and health vitalizing practice.
►Cover what you are cooking. Water will boil faster and you’ll use less energy if you cover the pots while you cook.
►Use cloth napkins and shopping bags.
►Switch to energy saving light bulbs. Start by replacing the bulbs in the rooms that you use most often since this will save the most energy and money. Energy saving compact fluorescent bulbs are considerably more expensive, but you recoup your initial outlay quickly with the money you save in electric bills.

Watch out for environmental toxins

Cleanliness if vital for a healthy home, but the use of too many chemical cleaning products can have a harmful impact on our health and environment. Use Natural alternatives instead and keep your home well ventilated.

►Synthetic air fresheners disguise bad smells by releasing a chemical that coats the nasal passages with a film of oil or deadens the olfactory nerves
►The best cleaner in the world is water! Soaking is a very effective way of removing dirt. Heavy duty cleaners are more expensive and harmful to the health and environment.
►Any product that is labeled as “natural” only has to contain 1 % of natural ingredients. If a product is “organic” it may not contain chemicals but will possibly contain animal by-products.

Yah Kai! Yah Kai! Yah Kai!
