Ms. K.M. sent this article which appeared in Wired magazine on the "new" anti-aging drug, metaformin, and I thought this was worth passing along. Who knows, this might start appearing on the supplement market:

    Or we can just learn to be natural alchemists and convert toxins into nutrition. It’s all energy after all.

    I see this whole health meme as social engineering and it’s going over great with our ageing population. ‘They’ do not care about our health or lifespan except to increase their bottom line. MSN feeds us a daily diet of fear and dis-ease which attacks our thought process planting the seeds of destruction. Like Goshawks said, If there was a magic life saving pill they wouldn’t allow it.
    We aren’t going to be able to eat healthy and exercise our way out this time around. Mass extinction is happening now. We are destroying earth, our home, the only home we have..

    Irony of all is that diabetes n related all just go away with reduced carbs moderate protein n higher fat (n enuf veggies to make terry wahls happy). (N mineral supplementation from celtic or himalayan or utah sources)

    Werd gosh. Add to that all the wrong ideas we been fed for generations… margarine n hydrogenated polyunsats good butter n satfats n coconut oil bad….cholesterol bad…. carbs good fat bad…. werth noting that just breaking with such lies in itself proves invaluable. Shameless ad 4 paleo primal yt n books following….

    Old news. Typical of “Tired” magazine. Life Extension Foundation (lef.org) has been recommending it for about 3 years now. It does appear to work and work well. For those who can’t get a prescription from a doctor (but they’ll be happy to load you up with statins and opiods!!!) you can use something called “AMPK Activator”.

    A very interesting “Wired” article. Possibly an aging (or healthy aging) bonanza. Thanks, Joseph and Ms. K.M.

    I do have one nagging caveat, though: I was raised on “The X-Files”, and one thing I got out of it’s ethos is a catchphrase: “Why is this guy (gal) still alive?” This is because – when a person is a threat to some Big Agenda – he/she is taken-out quickly by various Powers That Be. No mercy. The corollary, of course, is that – if that person remains living – another plot or subterfuge is in play…

    Barzilai’s pushing of metformin – which sidelines very expensive diabetes drugs, and possibly very expensive cancer drugs – puts him square in the headlights of a trillion-dollar pharmaceutical industry. As such, I am surprised he has not committed suicide, had a car accident, had a heart attack, or similar. He SHOULD be one of those true doctors who have ‘passed away’ in droves lately. About his only protection (that I can see) is that he is a native Israeli. Perhaps that is ‘a bridge too far’ to take him out…

    The corollary of “The X-Files” catchphrase requires Barzilai to be a stooge or shill within some agenda we cannot (as yet) see. Perhaps within metformin, perhaps within a larger agenda-structure. I hate to look a gift horse in the mouth, but one cannot help but remember Troy…

    (Additional possible ‘red flags’ are, again, Barzilai is a native Israeli [Mossad connection?], he went to Yale [Skull and Bones society?], and he is a celebrity within Vatican conferences. However, these pale beside “Why is this guy still alive?”]

      If you think competing with diabetes drugs will get you in trouble look then that doesn’t bode well for Dr Sergey Dzugan (dzlogic.com) and for a 7 part explanation:

      He noticed that his patients that were high in cholesterol were low in some hormones. Remembering from his med school days that cholesterol is used by the body to manufacture hormones. In a moment of connecting the dots he wondered “what would happen if the body lost the ability to convert?”. The body would produce more and more sensing that hormone levels were still low. Sort of like a foreman sending more bricks and mortar to a site because a wall isn’t being made (the workers have left).

      In his first attempt with 12 patients all 12 went back into the reference range without statins. In his second test with 100+ patients 83% went into the reference range and those that didn’t all got vastly better (they went from double to 10-20% outside the range). He is now working on 1000+ patient trial.

      The statin industry is $30+ billion a year and that is why you don’t hear about it. It took 10 years for Dr Marshall’s peptic ulcer protocol to be accepted and he was only up against a $2 billion a year industry.

        Yep trm. N marshall had antibiotic mfrs on his side. N there r infinitely safer n more effective n cheaper n nonpatented means of eliminating ulcers so big pharma viewed marshall as a friend.

    • zendogbreath on September 27, 2017 at 10:25 pm

      Werd gosh. The need of big pharma to silence such competition is proportional to how effective it is n how hard it is 4 them 2 co-opt it. Clearly they have no hesitation going aftr paleoprimal ists.

    Well.. I’m going in two directions at once with this one..

    Either.. This anti diabetes pill..taken from the Galega officinalis plant.. is being set up as a placebo to ‘explain’ why all of a sudden a bunch of old people no longer seem to just lie down and die.. here you go, this Metformin.. which has been taken to treat diabetes for years.. I havent seen people posting their personal experiences of eternal life through Metformin anywhere recently.. There are medical studies coming out though..
    http://www.lifeextension.com/Magazine/2017/4/Metformin-Slashes-Cancer-Risks/Page-01 but hey.. in todays age of Monsanto. .what do medical reviews mean.. especially when paid for and bought..
    This is some serious alchemy stuff and we need to know more about all the plants on this planet.

    In the antediluvian age people tended to live longer lives because they walked everywhere they went, for the most part; the land was full of all the trace elements required for growing nutritious crops; all of the food was organic, and there were no environmental pollutants.
    In the world we live in today, the land, for the most part, has lost virtually all of the trace elements due to “modern” farming techniques which only require three of them to be replaced; the crops are drenched in poisons, GMO’s are in virtually everything the West eats, they sky is being inundated with chemicals known to cause a plethora of nasty side effects and raining it down on our heads on a daily basis; the drugs we are forced to take do the same; the list goes on and on.
    There is no “wonder drug” our there that can possibly counteract all of this, despite what “scientists” believe is possible. In today’s world, your stomach simply isn’t big enough to allow you to eat the amount of food required for a healthy life. We are virtually starving our entire lives. Most of the “supplements” offered are synthetic and often do just the opposite of what they are intended to do. Our “modern” lifestyle is killing us slowly from our birth.
    There are steps that can be taken to correct this such as crushing rocks into dust and spreading on the land to replace the trace elements (pretty much what glaciers do over millennia), maintaining the rain forests, stopping the “geoengineering”, eliminating the GMO’s, and end the drenching of our foods in poisons before harvest, etc. This would require an entirely different mind set from today, however, and doesn’t fit with the current agenda.

      A paradigm shift to an economy based on “living wealth” and a living Earth. NOT the current corporatized ro/bots economy based upon a dead rock/planet.
