Aging and Longevity - is Future Nutrition a Mute Point or Imortant?
Today's Question: What is the Future of Nutrition,
and is it Important? - This is a matter of perspective. If our
"Brain" gets attached to the "Cloud" and then we are "Uploaded", then we might not
need a physical body. If on the other hand we look at "Aging" as a disease, then nutrition is important. Aging with our health intact requires knowing how our body's
"Metabolism" functions and how to keep is at optimum performance. Aging then becomes a disease
requiring intervention and a great deal of self-control.
However the Answer: ... may be a Moot Point.
This may all be a
Moot Point. According to Ray Kurtzweil,
we will become attached to the "Cloud" and the "Brain Cloud Connection" will be real.
We will see the emergence of Homo cloudus sapiens in 2029, and by 2045 Cloudus complexanus pluggedensis.
As chief architect at
Ray says that we are already connected to the "Cloud" now through our technology, for example, our smart phone. This smart phone is an extremely powerful computer that
connects to the cloud and then directly to our
Social Life, education, business, and financial resources. Taking the next step and transplanting this technology into our brain will
directly link the "Brain" to the "Cloud".
See ... in the cloud we do not need a body, we just need to worry about power outages.
Many consider aging a
Disease, and it is a Metabolic disease. Currently there is no real medicine
that postpones or slows down this metabolic aging disease. Aubrey de Grey discusses aging and the outlook of curing this disease of aging ...

How do you do the
Maintenance and Repair - i.e. Damage Control? Gerontologists has been discussing the primary dysfunctions of the human body for the last 40 years, which are
Cell loss - cell atrophy, Mitochondrial mutations, and Extracellular junk. Aubrey says the human body is a machine
Much like a Car, and once we understand the metabolic pathways and
their functions, we will be able to make repairs. Metabolism causes damage → Damage causes → Pathology, i.e. the human body is a machine, understanding the machine and we can restore the function.

The "How" of Preventative Maintenance - the 4 "R's"
High density nutritious foods are the primary effort of every living animal on this planet. Even plants must seek nutrition and fertile soils with a living
microbiome - soil health, to thrive. Humans are no different, as we sometimes forget why we eat. We carry our own
microbiome - guts and are seeking
Energy for survival, and
Nutrition for growth and disease control.

Simple solution, avoid carbohydrates as they offer no known nutritional benefits. Carbohydrates are however packaged in food source organisms that do provide Longevity Vitamins, Our foods provide Phytonutrients, macronutrients, micronutrients (for critical DNA repair) (R1), Polyphenols, Phytosterols, Flavonoids, Lignans, Antioxidants, and Carotenoids, that do allow life to continue. Ref: 100 richest dietary sources of polyphenols. (Resource 1,2,3)
Certainly avoid processed carbohydrates, fats and oils, and packaged processed foods. A direct result of too many carbohydrates is Insulin Resistance functional manifested as Carbohydrate Intolerance.

New evidence pushes our modernization of diet and tools back to 1.5 million years ago. Our diet changed to high nutrient energy dense meat, making and controlling fire and cooking on formed clay plates go back 1.2 million years. Plant foods became less important and the shrinkage of our intestines shows this and we no longer need long digestive tracts. A freelance youTube video summarizes ...
