Cut your DEATH RISK by 50 percent!
A prescription to CHEAT DEATH?
I know that sounds downright impossible, too crazy to even imagine. Even if such a thing existed, you’d need a pile of money – and good connections – to get your hands on it.
It’s not so crazy after all.
I’m here today to tell you that there IS just such a prescription.
It doesn’t come in a pill. It’s not an injection. And you certainly can’t spray it on.
But new research reveals one basic step every senior can take – right NOW – to cut your risk of death.
We’re not talking about cutting your risk of a deadly condition or two.
This “miracle” can cut your risk of death from EVERYTHING and add YEARS to your life.
Best part of all?
It really won’t cost you much, and there are zero side effects -- except a longer, better life free of disability and disease.
The key is in something I’ve already urged you to try.
It’s the back-to-basics diet built on what we were designed to eat from the beginning, all-natural fresh foods including fatty fish, nuts, olives, and many of the other foods you already know and love.
Yes, it’s the Mediterranean lifestyle you’ve heard so much about.
There’s no doubting the health benefits of this great diet. But many older folks think it’s too late for them to get results.
The new study proves that’s absolutely not the case.
It didn’t focus on younger people. It didn’t even focus on a lifetime of healthy eating.
It zoomed in on seniors and found that as you age, the benefits of this diet only get bigger.
The closer you stick to it, the lower your risk of an early death.
The analysis of more than 12,000 seniors assigned everyone a “score” from a 10-point scale based on how closely they followed the basics of the Mediterranean diet. Then, researchers tracked them for more than eight years.
The study finds that every single point on that scale will cut your risk of death by 5 percent -- meaning that someone who follows the diet closely enough to score a perfect 9 has a 50 percent lower risk of death than someone on a burger-and-fries diet with a score of 0.
It might be tough to achieve a perfect 9 (although you can certainly try). But even bumping yourself up from a 2 or 3 to a 6, 7, or 8 could cut your risk by between 20 and 30 percent.
And along with keeping you alive, this same healthy diet is proven to prevent heart attack and stroke, control weight, reverse metabolic syndrome, and even protect against dementia.
The REAL reason you CAN’T lose weight
Sometimes, it can feel like you’re just a MAGNET for excess weight.
No matter what you do, you can’t shake those stubborn extra pounds. You might even GAIN a few… even when you’re working hard to LOSE them!
How frustrating is that?
The reason is simple: Your weight isn’t always about diet and exercise.
Sure, both factors play a role. But there’s another one – one that’s just as big and maybe even bigger -- that gets ZERO attention from the mainstream.
Maybe that’ll change now, as new research exposes one simple reason for weight gain that has nothing to do with your food.
A series of chemicals called perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), which are found in everything from cosmetics to food packaging to non-stick cookware, could cause your body to soak up fat like a sponge.
That means that even if you do your best and eat right, you could still GAIN weight.
The new study finds that, on average, these chemicals could be responsible for about 4 pounds of the stubbornness that clings to your belly no matter what you do.
That may not sound like much.
But remember, that’s just an average.
Some people will be better built to withstand these chemicals and may not have any weight at all from them. Others could struggle even more and end up with MORE pounds.
As a result of those differences, the study finds that you might have an extra 7 pounds on your body -- RIGHT NOW -- because of exposure to PFASs.
That means 1 or even 2 points on your BMI could be caused by these chemicals – and in some cases, that could be the difference between being “overweight” and “obese” (or “normal” and “overweight”).
To put it another way, if you have to lose about 20 pounds, PFASs could be responsible for as much as a THIRD of that clingy extra weight.
If there’s any good news, it’s that the study finds that you’re not doomed. You can overcome the effect of the chemicals and lose the extra pounds with some careful dieting.
If there’s better news, it’s that you can cut your exposure to PFASs, too, so you never have to suffer from this chemically induced weight gain ever again.
Ditch the no-stick cookware and use something safer and more traditional, such as a well-seasoned cast-iron pan (as a bonus, lifting it will also be a form of exercise).
Those PFASs are found in fast-food packaging, so avoid the drive-thru… but you already knew that, right?
It’s commonly found in flame-retardant and stain-resistant chemicals, so be careful with everything from clothing to furniture purchases.
And finally, it’s also in some cosmetics and personal care items, so go online and do some research on the products you use every day, and consider making a switch if necessary.
