Longevity For Our Families And Pets

For dog and pet owners, parents, and families, this one is for you. We can learn a lot about longevity from our elders.

Georgios Stenos, age 85 from Greece, was interviewed for the Longevity Human Project (https://humanlongevityfilm.com). “All of the Ikarians are trying not to buy products with pesticides and fertilizers. I only use animal manure which I get from people who raise animals and I use it for my plants.”

Ikaria is one of the highly regarded Blue Zones, one of the few places in the world that produces the most number of centenarians. I remember talking to my son’s sensei at his karate school about his brother in law’s dog. He said that the dog had cancer and went on to say that every dog in his brother in law’s street and neighborhood had cancer. He continued to say that the whole neighborhood sprayed their lawns with chemicals and fertilizers. The lawns were green but all the dogs were sick.

If the dogs are being poisoned and being diagnosed with cancer what more is happening to that neighborhood’s young? Start reading labels. Start asking questions. Are you aware that Roundup is a known carcinogen? Do you use toxic house cleaners around the house? Toxicity is everywhere. Start protecting yourself and your loved ones including our beloved pets.

The Brain And Longevity

I teach my son about good health and longevity every day. One of his favorite foods is sardines. It was also one of his lolo’s (grandfather in Filipino) favorite foods. His lolo lived to be 107 years old and even near the end of his earthly life he was very sharp and aware. His memory was impeccable as he would perform memory games every night before going to bed.

Sardines is serious brain food. Why do you think many people living in the Mediterranean are blessed with long, happy lives and great brain health? They enjoy seafood including sardines. I introduced my son to it at a very early age and he loved it! But I feed him quality sardines that’s BPA free and sustainably caught. I like the brand Wild Planet. I don’t mind paying a little more because I know that I’m feeding my family the good stuff.

Invest in high quality, organic, chemical free food and you will notice a difference in the health of yourself and your loved ones. Alzheimer’s and dementia are no longer health issues for the elderly. More and more young people in their 20s and 30s are suffering from brain fog and memory problems. We have choices. Make the ones that will help you in the long haul and help sustain good health and happiness.
