I’m done disagreeing with people about what they put in their mouths. Human beings, in general, don’t/won’t change their dietary course in life until their body, as a greater authority, on life, instructs them otherwise. And most of the time, a tragedy must befall someone before they make meaningful changes in a more positive direction. Whether it be loss of function, loss of body parts due to amputation or removal, deafness, blindness, cancer, kidney failure, or cardiovascular disease, eventually, the body will speak(protest) loud enough that a change will take place.
Unfortunately, that change is sometimes death. Often at an early age.
I want people to realize that they have the potential to live a long healthy life, even up to the age of 120 years in some cases. Yet, here we are in a world where people are willing to settle for somewhere in their mid-seventies with a body that is no longer productive above the age of 65(retirement).
What if you could live your life in such a manner that your body wouldn’t even begin to feel the need to retire until you reached 110 productive years?
What if your body could repair and maintain itself in a manner that led most people to believe that you were no older than a healthy, athletic 34-year-old according to today’s standards?
As far as I am concerned, it can be done, and I will continue working toward that end. I will continue to observe nature and what it means to be a human within the greater structure of the lifeform we call Earth. It is a macro-organism, and we are all micro-organisms dependent on it as our host.
Our existence is no accident. We are here at the pleasure of our host. We are a guest at the table of life. And I plan on taking full advantage of every opportunity afforded me to maximize the wealth of time that has been granted to me as a human.
If you can read this, you are a very fortunate soul and rich beyond the measure of many. And I hope that many of you reading this today will still be walking beside me in another 70 years on my 120th birthday.
