    Young age, instead of old, is now a risk factor for stroke...even without predisposing conditions

    Just a week or so ago I did a post on the unfolding epidemic of cancer in the young. Just 20 years ago, most cancers were seen in people over 50 years of age and the strongest predictive factor for developing cancer was age itself.

    The Real Age of Earth - Just how accurate is Radiometric Dating ?

    I think this is a good, serious discussion to have. I do see many these days like to express doubt of religions and the Bible for suggesting the Earth may not be as old as many would like to think but I think we should look at the process people arrive to the idea that Earth is hundreds of...

    The title says it all, but the study authors make the unfortunate/handicapped conclusion that while we may very well be able to regrow cartilage, we cannot regrow limbs. Well, multiple animal studies I posted in the last beg to disagree and point to both high metabolism and progesterone as...

    Fertility Depends On Metabollism (ATP), Not Age

    As many of you know, there are 2 fundamental dogmas in reproductive medicine. One is that every woman is born with a fixed number of eggs and those cannot be replenished. The second one is that there is a biological fertility clock in every woman that inexorably ticks, and if the female does not...

    Protein Requirements Increase With Age

    Ray has written on the dangers of chronic protein deficiency and often recommends at least 80g of protein a day. In younger people (20-30 years old) the anabolic effects of protein peak at about 20g of protein per meal. It looks like in older people the requirement is higher. I have known about...
