Ibuprofen adds 12 years to life! Cheap painkillers can slow ageing and fight disease

Regular doses of ibuprofen could allow people to live up to 12 years longer.

In tests, the drug appears to hold back the ageing process as well as helping fight disease.

Ibuprofen, which is used every day at home by people to treat inflammation, pain and fever, may be the key to developing a long sought after anti-ageing drug.

Dr Brian Kennedy, president and chief executive of the Buck Institute for Research on Ageing in California, said: “There is a lot to be excited about.

"The research shows that ibuprofen impacts a process not yet implicated in ageing, giving us a new way to study and understand the ageing process.

“Ibuprofen is a relatively safe drug, found in most people’s medicine cabinets.

"There is every reason to believe there are other existing treatments that can impact health span and we need to be studying them.”

I put them in a little bowl and salt them.  I also get the ones packed in olive oil, rather than generic vegetable oil.

On Saturday, we went to a Christmas party one of Margaret's classmates' father was throwing for the whole class and their families - very cool.  The sauce on the chicken wings was a little sweet, so I had one of the big meatballs in marinara sauce.  I knew from the experience upthread with sausage that having this kind of thing in restaurants could be risky, but there wasn't anything obviously more paleo, so I ate half the meatball - probably about 2 oz.

Oh, and I should note that all the kids had had sniffles for a few days.  I was pretty sure I had what they had, with the only symptom being getting sleepy early, as is normal on paleo.

Anyway, I got sniffles and worse, and on tuesday had a full fledged 'migraine' stress headache, the kind that used to debilitate me every couple of weeks before paleo.  I didn't remember previously having one on paleo, though rereading this thread, it appears I did in 2012.

I am pretty sure there was significant wheat flour or some other source of gluten in the meatball, because just getting too much sugar normally just gives me cold symptoms, and not a severe headache.  I think it was the combination of sugar plus gluten, or whatever it was in the meatball, that gave me the headache.

Still, having a migraine every two years certainly beats having one every two weeks, and I was better by wednesday!

One other note:  based on the ingredients list and percentage of calories from sugar on the Green & Black "85%" dark chocolate, it is more like 75%.  So, I have abandoned it in favor of the Endangered Species 88% dark chocolate, which based on the ingredients list is actually 88%, since I still haven't been able to find a source for the E. Guittard 91% that I really like.  I've been eating too much of the 88% recently, and really need to cut back, but since I started eating too much of it a few weeks ago, I don't think it was the cause - or at least it wasn't the proximate cause - of the headache.

Welcome.  I recommend taking a "before" picture now.

I suggest going through the "Research" forum and finding and reading the paper that did the bone isotope study that showed essentially all neanderthal protein intake coming from animal sources.

If you don't like the Hadza, what about Neanderthals and Australian Aborigines, are they satisfactory models, or do you have any others that meet your requirements?

The foods in the image from science research were wild-gathered, not agrarian.

The idea that all legumes are ruled out is a Paleomyth.

Even most Paleo diet advocates do not claim that 0% of protein came from plants during the Paleolithic.

Hello, my name is Kyle. I'm finishing up my 2nd full day of Paleo. I've been through every diet in the world and have literally spent THOUSANDS of dollars on trainers, gym memberships, crossfit, supplements, online diet programs, weight loss doctors, hcg injections, phentrrmine. You name it and I've tried. Funny thing is I have never been able to sustain any of my weight loss. This is not due to effort, but simply not being properly educated on nutrition.  I was introduced to Paleo by a gastroenterologist who lives the Paleo lifestyle. I researched it for a month or so and decided to go for it beginning Tuesday this week. I currently weigh 184 pounds at 5'6", 26BMI, 17% body fat.  My goal is longevity of health and the appearance benefits that follow whatever they may be. I've learned my lesson through the years setting weight and BF% goals. However, if I was to pick a number, I would like to reach 150lbs if my body will allow it. I have also discontinued strength training for the first 30 days. I want to put all of my energy into nutrition for this first 30 days. I welcome any tips and encouragement.

I like the hot sauce or mustard ones. May be soybean oil in them though.

Try putting your preferred hot sauce on top of plain ones. Or your preferred mustard. A little goes a long way!

I need some creative ways other than plain right out of the can to eat sardines.  I just can't find an enjoyable way to eat them plain. I want to eat them on ritz crackers but as we all know, ritz is off the list.

Can you all help me find creative ways to eat these nutrient dense bad boys?
