Elderly eating healthy
An extremely comprehensive review published in Food Science & Biotechnology has summarized the current state of research regarding cellular senescence and basic dietary components. An aging-focused outlook The researchers begin their paper with a discussion of aging, citing a paper that frames it in terms of homeostasis and physiological decline [1]. They discuss its primacy...
Healthy Food
Scientists from Norway have built a model that predicts the effect of various dietary changes on human lifespan [1]. Diet is obviously a major health factor, but quantifying its impact is not easy. Since it is all but impossible to conduct a controlled study of how a particular type of food affects health in the...
Healthy Diet
In a population study, scientists have found that consuming foods associated with a low Diet Inflammatory Index substantially lowers the risk of dementia [1]. Aging is accompanied by an increase in chronic, low-grade inflammation, known as inflammaging, which has been linked to multiple age-related diseases. Inflammaging promotes cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and various types of...
Meat on plate
In a new population study, scientists have found more evidence that consuming a lot of meat might not be a good idea, though the association between meat and cancer depends on multiple factors [1]. Diet and health Given that lifestyle changes may be the only anti-aging intervention available today, it is important to elucidate the...

This study has been accepted into the journal but has not yet been peer reviewed. Duckweed for health This study focused on a plant called Mankai, a strain of the Wolffia globosa duckweed. Duckweed is...
Food DNA
A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition examined the relationship between diet quality and epigenetic aging clocks [1]. This study used data from the Framingham Heart Study Offspring Cohort. This specific study noted the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) scores, which are derived from a food frequency questionnaire (FFQ), of 1,995...
