Nature gives you the face you have at twenty, it's up to you to merit the face you have at fifty.
When we see someone in their sixties,seventies or even eighties who look younger than we think they should look for their age we always say that nature has been kind to them.What I'm asking is why isn't nature kind to everyone? Do some people have young genes or is it something that happens later on do we ourselves destroy the work that nature has done?
William Roach 80 yrs old has been on Coronation Street
(UK soap) since the first episode.
Cliff Richard at 73 yrs old the Peter Pan of pop. He says it's down to good genes but he leads a healthy lifestyle,playing tennis and restricts his diet and never overeats and has never smoked.
The secret of staying young is to live honestly,eat slowly and lie about your age.
- Lucille Ball
So how can we help nature keep us young. According to an article in the Daily Mail all we have to do is switch on our youth genes. Research done by Professor Keyton from the University of California which was done using worms and much too complicated to share in this post proved to her we consume to many carbohydrates.
She said that by cutting out carbohydrates such as, sugar, potatoes, noodles, rice, bread and pasta and most processed foods we can live not only longer but healthier.
