The “big picture” comes into focus with the story of monks who live in monastic communities near Mount Athos in northern Greece, who recently gained attention in The London Times (December 6, 2007).

These monks frequently practice fasting, a direct way to limit overmineralization. They do not eat meat, and for dairy, only limited amounts of cheese. They do occasionally eat fish, which provides them with essential omega-3 oils. Otherwise they eat plenty of home-grown vegetables and olive oil. Whole grain bread, pasta, olives and rice comprise the rest of their diet. They consume red wine with dinner, which is known to contain longevity factors. Very few of these monks develop prostate cancer -- about one fourth the international average. Their rate of lung and bladder cancer is zero. Their discipline to follow this “diet plan” emanates from their Biblical teaching, but it also must be said they don’t have calcium/iron-craving women cooking for them.

Researchers are now investigating ways to rid the human body of lipofuscin, and therefore reverse biological aging. Molecules such as resveratrol, quercetin, bran (IP6 from rice bran), lipoic acid, carnitine, flaxseed lignans, among others, can control and/or eliminate (chelate) iron and calcium, and have been shown to reduce lipofuscin levels. Biologists indicate there is no theoretical limit on the human lifespan if ways can be developed to prevent the progressive accumulation of lipofuscin.
