An analysis of the results of the 5 largest studies comparing mortality among more than 76,000 vegetarians and non-vegetarians with similar lifestyles showed that mortality among vegetarians from coronary heart disease who had followed their diet for more than 5 years was 24% lower than that of non-vegetarians vegetarians.

About a century ago, the science of gerontology arose, studying the biological, social and psychological aspects of human aging, its causes and ways to deal with it. A lot of scientific and pseudo-scientific theories of aging have arisen, over which whole gerontological institutes work, created in almost all countries of the world. There are a lot of theories describing the causes of aging – a change in the regulation of gene activity, a decrease in the synthesis of intracellular regulators of plasma membranes, a decrease in the length of telomeres (end sections of chromosomes), the concept of stress-age syndrome, etc. Continue reading
