Dear Ellen or Helen Goldman. You give some VERY BAD ADVICE. On page 1 you act like if you don't eat healthy and exercise that you going to grow old fast. And that's just NOT TRUE. #1 component on how you age is your genetics.
And arthritis, my dear, you are SO wrong about arthritis. I was in my prime @ 39 and was hit with an auto-immune form of inflammatory arthritis. It had NOTHING to with what I ate, I was exercising all the time and was the healthiest I'd ever been. Gout, of course, is another story, it IS related to food.
My mother had dementia, it was not caused by what she ate, she ate well her entire life. Was always fit and stayed the same size her entire life. Nor was it "brain exercise" related. It was from lack of Oxygen during an atrial fib episode. But we didn't know that until autopsy (what kind of dementia) and no one ever does until autopsy.
No Doctor knows what causes auto-immune diseases, dementia's, cancers. But the most recent studies on cancer show it's genetics and bad luck. And you can probably say it's the same for most other diseases too. Except those truly linked to smoking or obesity.
But you shouldn't publish LIES to try and make your point(s). There's tons of stuff to write about this time of year - pick one.
