HOW TO REMAIN YOUNG FOREVER & HEALTHY - I, July, 2002.

How to remain “Young” forever & Healthy ?

To remain always “Young” or be an “Evergreen Hero” and always “Healthy” has been the eternal quest of mankind! Our scriptures make a mention of “nectar”, which if consumed will make a person eternally young. Modern medical science has not yet discovered “nectar” of life. However researchers have found some clues to keep the human body and mind active and young. There are various items or ingredients in our food, which, if consumed in sufficient quantity can very slightly slow down the ageing process. These are called as “antioxidants’. Antioxidants also have some preventive action on some types of cancer. Hence planning our diet and consuming these antioxidants regularly in some form or other will have some slight beneficial effect on us and help to slightly delay the process of ageing in different parts and organs of our body. There will not be any perceptible benefit over a short term period. But if taken regularly on a long term/permanent basis there will be some beneficial effect in the long run.

How to prevent Disease?

Even if you remain “young”, diseases may still strike; either due to some inherent genetic factors or due to various external factors like the air we breathe, water we drink , the food we take etc. Now we do know how, many of these factors are responsible for some diseases and also how such diseases can be prevented to a varying extent. This “ disease prevention” contributes to good health, if only you know how it can be done. There are preventive measures for most diseases including BP, heart disease, diabetes and even cancer!
