OLDEST MAN ON THE PLANET QUIETLY ACHIEVES A MILESTONE IN LONGEVITY

Sunday, December 30th, 2012

WHO IS THE OLDEST MAN ON EARTH

Jiroemon Kimura, a 115-year-old Japanese man born when Queen Victoria still reigned over the British Empire, became the oldest man in recorded history on Friday, Guinness World Records said.

Kimura, of Kyotango, western Japan, was born April 19, 1897, in the 30th year of the Meiji era, according to London-based Guinness. That makes him 115 years and 253 days as of today, breaking the longevity record for men held by Christian Mortensen of California, who died in 1998 at the age of 115 years and 252 days. The oldest woman in recorded history, Frenchwoman Jeanne Calment, died in 1997 at the age of 122.

“He has an amazingly strong will to live,” Kimura’s nephew Tamotsu Miyake, 80, said in an interview. “He is strongly confident that he lives right and well.”

Kimura is among 22 Japanese people on a list of the world’s 64 oldest people compiled by the Los Angeles-based Gerontology Research Group, highlighting the challenges facing Japan as its population ages. A combination of the world’s highest life expectancy, the world’s second-largest public debt and a below- replacement birthrate is straining the nation’s pension system, prompting the government to curb payouts, raise contributions and delay the age of eligibility.

Japan’s average life expectancy at birth is 83 years, a figure projected to exceed 90 for women by 2050. The number of Japanese centenarians rose 7.6 per cent from a year earlier to 51,376 as of September, and there are 40 centenarians per 100,000 people in the country, which has the world’s highest proportion of elderly, according to Japan’s health ministry.

Oldest living person

Kimura became the world’s oldest currently living person on December 17, when 115-year-old Dina Manfredini of Iowa died, according to Guinness and the Gerontology Research Group. Manfredini was born 15 days before Kimura.

Kimura was in a hospital this morning, Yasuhiro Kawato, head of the section for elderly welfare at Kyotango’s city hall, said by phone.

“His condition has improved, and we’re not worried, but the doctors said it would be best if he stayed in the hospital into the new year,” Kawato said.

The world’s second-oldest living person, Japanese woman Koto Okubo, turned 115 on December 24.

Kimura is only the third man in history to reach 115 years of age, Guinness said in a statement today. He’s one of just four male super-centenarians, or people aged 110 or more, currently known to be alive, the organisation said.

“To be able to present Mr Kimura his second Guinness World Records title is truly an honour,” Guinness Editor-in- Chief Craig Glenday said in the statement. “Kimura-san is an exceptional person.”

Kimura lives with his grandson’s widow, Eiko Kimura, in a two-story wooden house he built in the 1960s. Eiko wakes him up every day at 7:30 am and takes him by wheelchair to a dining room for breakfast consisting of porridge and miso soup with potatoes and vegetables. He has never suffered from serious diseases, can communicate and spends most of his time in bed, Eiko said.

“Grandpa is positive and optimistic,” she said. “He becomes cheerful when he has guests. He’s well with a good appetite. Even when he falls ill, I can tell he’ll recover.”

Sino-Japanese War

Kimura, the third of six children, was born as Kinjiro Miyake in Kamiukawa, a fishing and farming village sandwiched between the mountains and the Sea of Japan. His parents, Morizo and Fusa Miyake, were farmers who grew rice and vegetables.

Only two years earlier, Japan’s success in the First Sino-Japanese War had established the nation as the dominant power in East Asia. Less than a year after Kimura was born, the sinking of the US battleship Maine in Havana Harbour would trigger the Spanish-American War.

According to Kimura’s nephew Tamotsu, the 115-year-old’s birthday is actually March 19. Records say he was born April 19 because an official misprinted the month when records from merging towns were consolidated in 1955, the nephew said

After finishing school at the age of 14 as the second-best student in his class, Kimura worked at local post offices for 45 years until his retirement in 1962 at the age of 65. He also worked at a government communication unit in Korea in the 1920s, when the peninsula was under Japanese rule, and returned to marry his neighbour Yae Kimura.

As his wife’s family didn’t have a male heir, he changed his name to Jiroemon Kimura, making him the ninth person in the family to bear the name. Since retiring, he has enjoyed reading newspapers and watching sumo wrestling on television. He sometimes helped his son farm until he was about 90 years old, Eiko Kimura said.

Kimura was a disciplined, serious man when he was younger, Miyake said. Even when he drank with his brothers, he would sit straight and keep quiet, Miyake said.

His wife, Yae, died 34 years ago at the age of 74. Four of Kimura’s five siblings lived to be more than 90 years old, and his youngest brother, Tetsuo, died at 100, Miyake said. Kimura’s living descendants include five children, 14 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and 13 great-great-grandchildren.

ROBOTS AND HUMAN BABIES IN THE FUTURE RAISES POSSIBILITIES

Sunday, December 30th, 2012

Computerized humans & Machines Take Over

Moore’s Law—The observation that computer chips get twice as powerful every two years—the implication here is that, eventually, artificial brains will eclipse the human brain. It then begs the question, what will the artificial superintelligence of the future choose to do with its abilities?

“The risk is not so much a Terminator scenario, where you get a supercomputer that abhores humans,” says Anders Sandberg, a researcher and futurist at the Oxford Martin School’s Future of Humanity Institute in England. “A malign neglect would be a more appropriate problem. You get something that’s very intelligent but has motivations that are completely nonhuman. [The computer] might not really care about anything that we care about, but since it’s smarter, it’s more than likely going to get what it wants.”

HISTORICAL DATA ON PANDEMICS & THE WORLD POPULATION

Sunday, December 30th, 2012

Pandemic-How can we the world survive?

If a disease is to be globally disruptive, it must precipitate into a flare-up of contagion and lethality—As was  the 1918 influenza pandemic, which in the course of two and half years wiped out 50 to 80 million people. If the next influenza pandemic is as bad as that one, then the pro rata toll would be 210 million. “Wiping out that many people at othe one time would disrupt civilization as we know it,” the CDC’s Khan says. He adds, however, that in the past century medical science has developed powerful weapons against disease. “We’re an intelligent species,” he says. “We & resilient, resourceful & can fight back.”

But what if that intelligence were turned against us? Thanks to advances in biotechnology, it will become increasingly possible to custom-tailor a pathogen’s lethality. “We’re on the cusp of what could be a very frightening time,” says Charles P. Blair, director of the Terrorism Analysis Project at the Federation of American Scientists.
“I think in the very near future you’re talking about a potential extinction event.”

MORE RESAERCH NEEDED INTO METAL HEALTH PROBLEMS WITH MINE WORKERS

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

ARE COAL MINE WORKERS BECOMING MENTALLY CHALLENGED?

Researchers at the University of Newcastle Australia are examining the extent and impact of mental health problems in the coal mining industry.

They will work with the Minerals Council and the Hunter Institute of Mental Health to identify the mental health problems of coal industry employees and the impact on workplace safety and productivity.

Mental health problems are estimated to cost the NSW state’s coal mines around $430 million in productivity losses every year.

The University’s Professor Brian Kelly says researchers will also develop a mental health prevention model.

“To put in place a program of work looking at the prevention of mental health problems , the promotion of good mental health in the workplace and ways that people can get effective assistance if they’re experiencing difficulties,” he said.

“There’s similar sort of work being done in other industries and I think is an example of the mining industry taking the lead in this area.”

Professor Kelly says he will be working closely with Hunter coal mines as part of the research.

“The focus of this work will be on the coal industry so yes it will be very relevant to the Hunter region and we are looking forward to working closely with mining sites around the Hunter to look at how to support their workforce more effectively,” he said.

SIX FOODS THAT MUST BE EATEN TO MAINTAIN GOOD HEALTH

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

TOP 6 FOODS TO EAT IN MAINTAINING YOUR BODY WELL

(NaturalNews) The typical American diet is a deadly one, consisting primarily of toxic and acid-forming foods like processed sugars, artificial sweeteners, refined grains, conventionally produced meats and dairy, and hidden genetically modified organisms. All this, combined with a plethora of other challenging environmental factors (such as lack of rest, psychological stress, and pharmaceutical drugs), mean it’s no wonder that more and more people are being diagnosed with chronic, degenerative illnesses or otherwise deadly conditions for which modern conventional medicine claims to have no known cure.

One of the basic underlying problems with this unsustainable lifestyle – and there are many – is the average consumer’s lack of understanding that the body must balance the blood’s pH levels at a slightly alkaline level of 7.365 in order to survive. When a person ingests food to “burn” for fuel, the digestive and metabolic process transforms it into a kind of ash which is either acidic or alkaline. The laws of modern biochemistry further explain that it is not the organic matter of foods (whether the food itself is acidic or alkaline), but their inorganic matter (such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, sulfur, phosphorous; that is, how they break down in our bodies), that determines either the acidity or alkalinity of this ashy residue.

For this reason, and because all foods in nature contain both acid and alkaline-forming elements according to the Conscious Living Center, balance is either achieved or thwarted as a direct result of the foods we choose to eat. Too many acid-forming foods can have dire consequences for our health, with “acidosis” being a common diagnosis in diabetics, for example. This is because when the nutrients required to maintain this slightly alkaline state cannot be obtained from food, the body will instead draw from its own stores, like the bones or other vital tissues – damaging its ability to repair itself and detoxify heavy metals, thereby making a person more vulnerable to fatigue and illness. And the margin for error is small. Even an only slightly acidic pH of 6.9 can actually lead to coma and death.

Of course, the ultimate goal is balance. Eating too many alkalizing foods can lead to its own fair share of complications over time, but the risk of this is seemingly less likely, given the current sorry state of today’s highly addictive consumerist diet. To combat the effects of such a diet, here are six of the most alkaline-forming foods to work into your everyday meals:

1. Root vegetables

Due to the healing “yang” nature of these foods in traditional Chinese medicine, and their tendency to be more rich in minerals than many other vegetables, it may be safe to say that you can’t get enough of them. Look for radishes especially (black, red or white), as well as beets, carrots, turnips, horseradish and rutabaga. Ready to eat after steaming for just 15-20 minutes, root vegetables will help you feel both satiated and better grounded.

2. Cruciferous vegetables

These are the veggies we all know and love, made even more delicious with just a small amount of healthy, homemade sauce like pesto. Choose from broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and the like.

3. Leafy greens

These include kale, Swiss chard, turnip greens and spinach – of which spinach may in fact be the best pick. Known especially for its rich vitamin K and folate content, spinach is also packed with vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, antioxidants and fiber, helping to improve digestion and even vision.

4. Garlic

A true miracle food, garlic appears at the top of innumerable lists of foods that encourage overall health, and alkaline-forming food is no exception. Among its other benefits are its ability to promote cardiovascular and immune health by lowering blood pressure, cleansing the liver and fighting off disease.

5. Cayenne peppers (capsicum)

As part of a family of potent, tropical peppers which contain enzymes essential to endocrine function, cayenne is among the most alkalizing foods. It is known for its antibacterial properties and is a rich supply of vitamin A, making it a helpful agent in fighting off the harmful free radicals that lead to stress and illness.

6. Lemons

Lemons may be the most alkalizing food of all. As a natural disinfectant, it can heal wounds while also providing potent and immediate relief for hyperacidity and virus-related conditions, as well as coughs, colds, flu and heartburn. Lemon also works to energize the liver and promote detoxification.

So it can’t hurt to think twice about what’s on your plate at your next meal, but not doing somight. Just applying that age-old motherly advice to “eat your vegetables” can be a solid first step in achieving better health.
