Avoid Today’s Leading Cause Of Death
The leading cause of death in the modern world is medical ignorance. To combat this epidemic, Life Extension researchers have spent the past ten years accumulating a wealth of new lifesaving knowledge that has been compiled into the 2014 edition of Disease Prevention and Treatment. This 5th edition book contains over 1,400 pages of information about innovative approaches to disease management that is overlooked by most practicing physicians. Disease Prevention and Treatment delivers innovative recommendations extracted from the published scientific literature about diet, nutrients, hormones, and drugs to address 130 common health concerns.
Melatonin: Hormonal Brain Protection
Leading researchers have discovered how melatonin guards against brain degeneration brought on by aging and environmental factors. New studies uncover melatonin’s ability to protect against common age-related neurological disorders including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Whey Protein’s New Longevity Benefits
Though popular with athletes for its ability to help build muscle mass, new studies have shown that whey protein has impressive longevity benefits that can mimic those of calorie restriction. Whey has the ability to optimize immunity factors as well as maximize glutathione.
Conference Report: Aging And Diseases Of Aging
At The Aging and Diseases of Aging conference in Tokyo, scientists reported on their investigations into the mechanisms underlying the diseases of aging. Presentations included findings on reduced adiponectin leading to obesity and insulin resistance, how amyloid protein leads to cardiovascular disease, and how specific sirtuins protect against obesity. Other topics included the role of autophagy in neuro-degenerative disease, understanding cell senescence, and using young blood to restore health in older organisms.
Unsurpassed Quality-Control Standards
Unlike many drug manufacturers whose plants have been found to be contaminated, Life Extension has in place stringent safeguards to ensure purity, active ingredient status, and overall integrity of the nutrients we use each day. These quality control standards exceed FDA mandates in order to ensure consumers the purest supplements in the industry.
As We See It
The FDA pretends to protect the public against contaminated drugs. The sordid facts reveal an agency incapable of acting in a rational manner. Such is the case of a company that made contaminated injectable drugs that sickened 745 Americans with 58 associated deaths. The FDA knew about this company’s substandard manufacturing practices, yet it did nothing to stop it. See past this charade as you read how a drug factory operated under filthy conditions while FDA looked the other way.
Dr. Arthur Agatston, author of the best-selling The South Beach Diet explains in his new book, The South Beach Diet Gluten Solution, how the growing presence of gluten in the American diet can lead to brain fog, reduced vitamin D absorption, and even rheumatoid arthritis. Dr. Agatston provides an easy-to-follow program for repairing the damage done by gluten.

Metformin cuts colorectal cancer mortality by 56%; low vitamin D levels related to hypertension; supplements and exercise reduce risk of coronary artery disease; lower DHEA levels associated with higher stroke risk in women; and more.
Lentils are richly packed with phyto-chemicals, vitamins, and nutrients—especially folate, minerals, and dietary fiber. Research demonstrates that lentils powerfully protect against cancer, diabetes, and the deadly metabolic syndrome.
