Conclusion In this large study, greater adherence to the Mediterranean diet was associated with longer telomeres. These results further support the benefits of adherence to the Mediterranean diet for promoting health and longevity.”

So,  that seems promising … the question….. can you ‘stick with the diet’?  Of course, there are other studies that provide other results.  How does one resolve the discrepancies?

Stat tuned … Ideas coming soon 🙂

We are only just beginning to understand the full majesty of life on Earth. Although 10–15 million eukaryotic species and perhaps trillions of bacterial and archaeal species adorn the Tree of Life, ∼2.3 mil- lion are actually known, and of those, fewer than 15,000, mostly microbes, have completed or partially sequenced genomes


Pretty Ambitious!  … and rather important!
