The century-old mystery. How to live longer?




by Christophe » 18/06/11, 11:52

This recent documentary contains testimonies of centenarians moving and instructive:

THE MYSTERY OF THE CENTENARIANS
90 min. Authors: Emmanuel Roblin and Thierry Ragobert.
Production: France 3 / Adamis Production. Year: 2011.

In France, they could be 150.000 in 2050, in Japan nearly a million. More and more numerous, the centenarians fascinate. They concentrate all the questions and concerns related to the mysteries of longevity.

Who are these humans who defy the laws of time? What is their view of the world around them? How long are they really? This positive film is a scientific survey on longevity, but also a sociological, ethnological survey on the phenomenon of centenarians.

From France to Okinawa Island, Japan, via the United States and Mount Gennargentu, in Sardinia, known for the exceptional longevity of its inhabitants, we meet these centenarians who defy the laws of nature .

The question longevity is the subject of scientific investigation par excellence. By crossing the opinions of the researchers, the testimonies of centenarians, by dissecting the work of the scientists, their laboratory researches and their investigation in the field, "The mystery of the centenarians" is a film which touches on the universal.

But, beyond this research, the centenarians must also be approached for what they are: individuals in their own right. A whole century of history in the head and weight of the world on each leg, two wars, shaking hands, refrains that no one knows, a handful of happiness and full of memories ... The centenarians are now camping outposts.

"The Centennial Mystery" explores the keys to longevity. How does one become a centenary? According to our genetic programming or, on the contrary, can we decide? Filigree, an essential question arises: is there a secret of immortality?

Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpV4huTD4qg
(In English??)

If we had to identify a common point of all the interviewees it is to have a will to live very intense and a morale of steel! Placebo, nocébo is not bullshit (the labs lie to us to sell their chemical soup), see this particular topic https://www.econologie.com/forums/le-secret- ... t8324.html

There was one in particular that reported an exceptional sense of humor and reasoning that most of the current 60 retirees do not even have anymore !! These new retirees are probably too frustrated by their retirement (there's never enough) and benefits (there's never enough) ... they will not fizzle with such a mentality!

In short, I think we can summarize the secret of longevity by 2 essential factors, one mastery, the other not (well not for now huh dedeleco ...):
- good living conditions (food, stress, morale, limited pollution ...)
- genetics (we have it or not)

Alcohol and tobacco are not so aggravating factors: one of the 103 retirees has shopped and bought some pints per pack of 4 (so not really the best quality wine ...) and smoked until 'to more than 80 years. What kills is excess!

I will try to find an excerpt from the report.

In short, here is a subject on the longevity of the human being to complete with the different information you have ...

Interview of the director:

The documentary The mystery of centenarians will be released on 12 June, at 22h55, on France 3. How do you live when you're one hundred years old? What do we really know about them? What is their view of the world today? The director Emmanuel Roblin was interested in this topic by going to meet several centenarians in France, Japan, the United States and Sardinia. Interview.

Pilgrim: Why are you interested in centenarians in your documentary?

Emmanuel Roblin: There was a centenary in my family. My wife's grandfather lived up to 101 years old. He always told us fascinating stories. Stories that had sometimes happened 80 or 90 years ago! He remembered, for example, having attended an air show at Le Bourget at the beginning of the century. The plane had struggled to take off, had risen a few meters and had fallen back to the ground.

He also told us about the arrival of the first TV, the first radio, technical progress. From his stories was born a questioning. How do these centenarians live in our world? How do they adapt to modernity? How do you handle daily glitches when you have 100? Do we want to live? For us, everything is simple, but for them?

You went to Sardinia, the United States and Japan. What drove you to leave for 4 corners of the world?


In these countries, scientific studies on centenarians are more numerous than in France. In our country, there is less of a question about what is genetically or environmentally friendly about this longevity. I wanted to have the eyes of researchers and scientists on cases a little apart.
In Japan for example, the exceptional longevity established in Okinawa raises questions.

It is also the country where we live the oldest in the world. In Sardinia, I wanted to discover a little mystery: in these mountainous regions, there are many centenarians, mostly men, while most of the centenarians are women. Finally, the case of Americans was interesting because it does not go well in the United States from the point of view of health and life expectancy. Yet following the precepts of their church, this group of 7e Day Adventists live longer than others.

One of the major issues of aging is the issue of pension funding, this issue is not addressed in your documentary. Why this choice ?

I wanted to be interested in who these people were and what they lived and felt everyday. I did not wish to enter into long digressions on the economic aspect even if today this debate is central in our society. I think that the information provided in the documentary makes it possible to understand how each one supports his needs.

The ideal is not to live older, but "better long".
Given the many factors (environmental genetics etc), it is quite hazardous to consider an increase in longevity ... which must certainly be preprogrammed from birth.

is not true, because with what we eat, drink and do, we can shorten and destroy it with nearly 40ans, as shown by my mother-in-law 97ans and his dead brother 40 years younger, by way of life very bad, with the danger that was not explained at the time, unlike now (alcohol, tobacco, food).
!!
The current obesity epidemic, which US contaminates us, shows it clearly !!


Read the book, blue box, and apply:
calorie restriction, (case of my mother-in-law, spontaneous compared to her brother) and exercise, with a varied natural food, without modern and industrial junk food, you will "live better long" for sure !!


Good figs, peaches, apricots ripe on the tree, at the moment, are infinitely better to appreciate the "live better for a long time", than the false juices, sodas and colas that you find everywhere, real junk to never drink !!

Shorten your life, of course! it flows naturally, but to increase it, that would surprise me strongly.
Just as there is a longevity peculiar to each species, there are certainly predispositions related to family inheritance, but it is once again difficult to distinguish the innate is the acquis.

But in fact it's econological to live longer?

We consume the resources longer ....
We create societies that take longer to adapt to change (I regularly read something like "strongly that such and such a generation has disappeared that we can move on to better ...").

Does a life need to be long to be econological?

Read this article summarizing a lifetime of specific scientific epidemiological studies on nutrition and life:
https://www.econologie.info/share/partag ... fgeSoT.pdf
Look at the figures 32, 33, 34, 35, 36 with great care for you, your children and grandchildren !!!

https://www.econologie.com/forums/post203992.html#203992

and read on google all that gives Walter Willett nutrition

Over dozens of years of life, cumulated, it gives great differences to live longer, our lifestyle !!

Genetics does not condition everything !!

What your mother has eaten or drunk, pregnant with you fetus at one or two months of gestation has as much effect !!

And what you eat all your life is so important !!

And epigenetics indicates that what your grandparents have or have not eaten (famine), also has an influence !!


So taking care of yourself while eating right is also taking care of your little children !!

Type on google: epigenetic
