Anti-Aging


Dr. McDougall's Health and Medical Center

Life is short and as a result most of us want to make the most of our 90 plus years. Look around the world. Who are the people who look the youngest and are most agile, trim and functional? It’s people who live on starch-based diets. When these same people move to the West, and switch to burgers and pizza, they age faster. The rich Western diet places serious burdens on our bodies. Rapid aging is one consequence of all this avoidable wear and tear. Dietary excesses, especially in the form of animal protein (and isolated soy protein), cause the production of growth hormones (like IGF-1). As an adult you do not want to grow (age) any faster than is necessary. Plants are abundant in antioxidants which slow aging. All of the components of a starch-based diet with fruits and vegetables keep your skin, eyes, ears, heart, and bones in top condition throughout life. Don’t forget: moderate exercise and clean habits (like not smoking) also support a youthful body. Follow this advice and you will soon be hearing well-deserved compliments from friends and family.
