Braeden Lichti: The Business of Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Biotechnology – Digital Journal

Dec. 31, 2021 / PRZen / VANCOUVER, British Columbia — 2020-07-30: Scientists now have a better understanding into the aging process, giving us a better explanation of the cellular changes that lead our body and brain to decline as we age.

Vocal changes common during aging process | Health, Medicine and Fitness | – Sioux City Journal

Dear Doctors: My chorus has started meeting again — outdoors and vaccinated — to practice and sing. We’ve had a year off, and I’m upset that my voice is getting to be hoarse, and even cracking on low notes. I’m 67 years old and have always been a good singer. Is this happening from disuse?

Dear Reader: You’ve reached an age at which many adults begin to notice changes to the sound and timbre of their voices. This is often due to the physical effects of aging. They may affect the vocal apparatus directly, and can also arise from issues having to do with an individual’s general health, strength and fitness.

The specific changes that occur in the larynx, which …….

From Anti-Aging Serums to Fine Fragrances, the 21 Best Grooming Products of 2021 – Yahoo Lifestyle

As a grooming editor, I’m essentially a product-testing lab rat; I try hundreds of products a year all across my body, with the goal of telling you which ones are the best.

Because I test so many products so quickly, the best ones in my book are the ones that make a powerful and effective first impression—so much so that they become the products the become a part of my regular routine on the days I’m not testing something new. They keep my complexion the clearest, or my hair the most cooperative. They help me smell the best, and they often incorporate the best ingredients in the world—sometimes without breaking the bank.

This One Habit Can Help Fight Your Brain’s Aging, New Study Says — Eat This Not That – Eat This, Not That

It’s that time again. We’re all taking stock of the year that was and looking ahead to 2022. A new year represents an opportunity for a fresh start, which is why millions pledge to begin making healthier lifestyle decisions each January 1st.

More U.S. Seniors, Especially Women, Are Retaining Healthy Brains: Study – Arizona Daily Star

THURSDAY, Dec. 30, 2021 (HealthDay News) — The percentage of older Americans reporting serious problems with memory and thinking has declined in recent years — and higher education levels may be part of the reason, a new study finds.

Researchers found that between 2008 and 2017, the proportion of older U.S. adults reporting “serious cognitive problems” declined from just over 12% to 10%. The reasons are unclear, but an increase in Americans’ educational attainment over time seemed to account for part of the trend.

Many studies have linked higher education levels to a lower risk of impaired thinking and dementia, said lead r…….

Canada Needs to Re-Envision Aging – YouAreUNLTD

Ageism is engrained in our society. And when we treat people differently because of their age, this impacts our values, priorities, policy decisions and financial allocations, say John Muscedere and Alex Mihailidis in their op-ed in the Toronto Star.
