Live Long and Prosper!

 Dr. Dean Ornish , in collaboration with Nobel laureate Elizabeth Blackburn, PhD,   showed that the following lifestyle changes can lengthen telomeres, the ends of chromosomes that control how long we live.

  a very low-fat diet including predominantly fruits, vegetables, whole grains,  legumes, and soy products in their natural, unrefined forms;

  moderate exercise such as walking;

  various stress management techniques including yoga-based stretching,   breathing, meditation, and imagery; and

 enhanced love and social support, which may include support groups.

 Ringo Starr, (the most unappreciated Beatle):

  •      is a long-time vegetarian,
  •     works out regularly,
  •     meditates daily and
  •     attributes aging well to being in love with his wife of 33 years

 The results of Ringo’s lifestyle sure seem to confirm Dr. Ornish’s research.

 Beatles Forever!
