Unnaturely long lifetimes?

Actually, the Japanese are among the longest lived people in the world. It's hard to think of a culture that is less 'remote'.

Much of it seems to be directly related to diet. Garbage in, garbage out, you know.

Diet does plays a big part of it, I am astounded that children in britain actually manage to grow the crap they are fed, if there is one stereo type of britain I won't argue with, it's bad food

We should go back to the days of vegetable aptches, allotments and no Tesco's or Sainsbury's. I hate Asda now. They are just a re-branded Walmart. I wish Americans would stop buying out our companies. Those TimeWarner idiots are trying to buy out the whole of ITN.
I don't see how our bodies have learnt to deal with radiation. Radiation is radiation, you can't stop it, unless your quite content being transported inside a 3 metre thick lead cube. Of course, that's only if Gamma comes and gets you. The only way our bodies can deal with it is with stronger ionic bonds? I think! Anyways, background radiation is so negligble our clothes probably stop it. As they say, there is more atomic energy in your body than a nucleur power station can produce in 300 years. I love that fact.

" I wish Americans would stop buying out our companies."

I wish you guys would stop selling them! One day the world will learn that many things are best done locally and/or at home. No one needs an ear of corn shipped half around the world!

It may be profitable to big business, but it's hell to pay for our natural resources and local economies.

But it not just America buying, they (G-8 and friends)buy and sell us and our interests daily.

When we've had enough we will learn to stay home and tend our fields,... metaphorically speaking.

All things are dangerous, its a fact of life. Cosmic radiation is one of the biggest sources that we are exposed to every day of our lifes.

In regards to our bodies "learning" how to cope with radiation, if we had not evolved systems to do this, we would not be here typing away, no life would could exist if it wasn't able to resist radiation.

ps - incase you didnt know... the easiest way to get hold of uranium is picking up a lump of granite. It is a good source of uranium-238 and consquently Radon gas, due half-life decay of U-238. So not so good if you live in Aberdeen, Scotland, as most of the buildings are made of Granite, hence the Grey City, ta da!

You are absolutely right that you can't stop it, however it is possible to repair the damage to a limited extent, thus it is possible to be resistant to it.

Think about it this way:

When I transmit data via a modem, I surround that data with Cyclic Redundancy Check codes so that if any of the data are damaged in transit, I can detect and correct the damage. In extreme cases, I may even send three copies of the data, all protected by individual CRCs in order to ensure that I get a valid data stream at the other end. This hasn't made it any more difficult to destroy the individual data bits in transit, but it HAS made it easier for me to repair the damage at the other end.

In much the same way, our bodies have evolved to tolerate the levels of radiation that we live with in our day-to-day existence sufficiently to allow us to live long enough to reproduce and ensure the survival of our progeny. Were there to be an increase in the radiation levels then I am sure that we would evolve to handle it, provided we had sufficient time to evolve at all.

And this being so we have and will continue to evolve better means of repair.

Where the danger arises of course lies in the premise, "no radical change is good."

A rapid increase in radiation overwhelms the mechanisms nature has in place...this is happing now throughout the would.

What humans experience as a 10 times increase in the occurrence Melanoma cancers have their counter parts throughout the animal and plant kingdoms...their suffering remains untold...

Global warming isn't going to be a vacation in the Tropics...

Stopped the botox, what to do now?

I would like to open a vital for me discussion, I'm persuaded it will be advantageous for other girls tooI have used botox for a very long period of time, and as a final point, I decided to quit! I think everybody knows why. At the moment, I'm aware of the truth, that lacking these injections, my appearance won't last stretched for a long time, and I have to find something else as an alternative - the more safety the better. I've been explained that there is this little machine, which is used only with its unique creams, and the company affirms that this procedure not only keeps the skin lifted, but also slows the aging process. Depending on what I've read, this apparatus is an alternative to botox, but I'd thank you a lot, if you write me down if you have any familiarity with it. Is there a chance, that you know someone who has ever treated him\herself with the apparatus and it goes without saying the consequences?I really appreciate your opinion.

I've been trying to get Gizmo off botox for years, but he insists his wife wouldn't love him anymore if his eyebrows were less perky.
