editor’s note

Stress and avoidance. Two big issues that many of us are dealing with these days.

I guess we can all sort of know and see that more people are drinking alcohol regularly these days; that obesity and diabetes are huge now in our populations as more people are using food to combat stress; and there is an increase in gambling and the use of videos … all to cope with stress. Some global statistics on obesity are below, from a terrific book called Eat Less, Live Long by Jason Shon Bennett: A Global…

hidden and unexplained : feeling the pain of fibromyalgia

For some people, waking up every day means the start of persistent pain that affects their mood, thinking and relationships. This experience is more difficult when the pain doesn’t seem to have a cause; at least not a visible one.

Technological advancement has allowed us to look closer. Today, it is a recognised disorder, part of a group of chronic pain syndromes described as central nervous system disorders. The condition affects more than four times as many women as it does men. With…

are we coming closer to eating the holy grail of anti-ageing?

A ketogenic diet may unlock the secrets to the fountain of youth. In the late 1940s, Denham Harman PhD, an accomplished chemist, became so fascinated with the idea of finding a cure to ageing that he decided to go back to school and study medicine. In 1953, while still an intern at Berkeley in California, he proposed a radical new theory called the 'the free radical theory of ageing'. In this theory, he declared that ageing is caused by reactive oxygen species accumulating within cells. Denham then noticed that it wasn't simply the accumulation of reactive oxygen species that affected lifespan, but the damage these reactive oxygen species were inflicting on mitochondria. So he modified his theory and gave it a new name: 'the mitochondrial theory of ageing'. Harman changed the…
