    It's no good becoming a born again health freak once you hit 50 , it's way too late by then the damage has been done .

    I had Stage 3 colon cancer.

    It was in remission for 2 1/2 years.

    Came back as Stage 4 cancer.

    I had High Pec surgery on 1/13/17.

    No sign of cancer today.

    I'm going to be 66 in Feb.

    I was prepared to die 5 years ago.

    I'm still here.:applause:

    I've had a complete change of attitude.

    Don't worry.

    It'll kill you.

    It's never too late to try. You can always delay the inevitable & increase the quality of whatever life you have left. I don't use drugs, but have NO problem with society allowing folks with cancer to use marijuana if it helps them retain comfort & dignity in whatever time they have left, instead of some big-pharma 'solution'.

    Cancers thrive in an acidic, low-oxygen environment & feed well on sugar. Some believe the resultant excessive insulin levels aid it as well. So it would seem a proper pH, well-oxygenated, low-sugar environment would at least tip the scales in one's favor...

    There is some interesting information beginning to appear about the risks of radiation from the upcoming 5G wireless technology that is getting ready to be launched. Don't know if it's true or not, but it bears examination since we're all going to bathed in it soon...

    Gee, I retired at 59 yoa due to multiple spinal fractures and what my doctors described as "...an obliterated left Achilles' tendon and ankle with poor prospects for any type of successful transplant or transposition." as a result of a non-union, non-certified crane operator dropping a pallet of 4 full 50 gallon drums of contaminated transformer oil on me. I spent two years rehabbing and learning to walk. It was another year before I could stand long enough to play a gig, if I use my sub 8 lb. SGs. (My 10+lb. LP custom is unbearable after about 10 mins.) High performance motorcycles were my passion and I still throw a leg over my old Ducati once in awhile and make a wfo run between Sacramento and Jackson, knowing full well that I may not be able to walk the next day or the day after that. I think I understand just fine.:dude:

    Before another 18 years pass they'll likely move the avg life expectancy far enough out there that we'll all be begging to get off this rock

    Hey Obi,

    While I note the points you make about physical health I think there are other important ingredients for long life: off the top of my mind I imagine that a person needs to be reasonably happy (or have understood about how to be content), have good relationships, not feel too lonely, have some optimism about tomorrow.

    it seems to me that in the age group past about 77 these things matter a lot.

    In my opinion, the colon should be removable for general inpection, cleaning, and repairs by the user - a modular thing. That way you could simply pull it out and check it monthly, and monitor the effects of them chicken McNuggets, clean & polish it like good rifle, put it back and get plenty of useful target practice out of it long before it rots.

    Living long is great as long as you have quality of life.

    Peace

    Seen too many die young , at 54 I consider myself fortunate allready , you never know what's round the corner . Make the most while you're fit and able . I've seen others save and do nothing but be tight fisted make it to retirement to die and not see any of it , now that's a waste . Balance it all out the best you can .
