The Myth of Anti-Aging Hormones: Profitable Myths

From the July 2004 edition of Dr. Fuhrman's Healthy Times:

In 2001, NBC’s Dateline sent a perfectly healthy investigator to an anti-aging medicine clinic in Las Vegas where she posed as a patient. After undergoing $1,500 worth of tests, the investigator was told she needed hormones and a 40 pill-per day supplement program that cost $1,500 per month.

There is no such thing as anti-aging medicine. Medicines and hormones have never been demonstrated to have anti-aging effects. Only nutritional excellence and avoidance of harmful substances can retard the aging process.

Five factors determine your health and your rate of biological aging, and none of them are medical specialties.
  1. Adequately meeting your nutritional, emotional, and sleep needs
  2. Avoiding all excesses, especially excess calories
  3. Avoiding toxic substances
  4. Adequate exercise or activity
  5. Consuming a high level and diversity of plant-derived phytochemicals
