Living Longer - It's possible

By now, everyone has heard about the effects of calorie restriction on longevity.  

It’s simple - wire your teeth shut - consume less - and live longer.  

There is a drug called Ropaniyium.  It is an immuno suppressive drug.  

Scientist at the Whitehead Institute and the University of Pennsylvania have been able to modify the campaign molecule to promote longevity in mice.  In previous studies it was shown that restricting calories by 20-40% but maintaining proper nutrition causes lab animals to live longer.  

Ropaniyium mimics this calorie restriction in mice.  So, who knows, someday you might be able to buy, say, 40 mgs of Ropaniyium and live an extra 6 months.  

Time will tell.

In the meantime, if you are going to live longer, it's a good time to think about how you will look in those extra years. You can arrange a free consultation with me now in my Fort Myers plastic surgery facility and we can discuss your options.
