The longevity diet
by Jane Clarke
The Times nutritionist suggests 12 foods that may keep
us healthier for longer.

Looking younger and living longer has become
something of a modern mantra — and so we dutifully drag
ourselves off to the gym (or in my case, to Thai box) and
spend pounds on anti-ageing creams. Then, at the first
sign of any health niggle that triggers a worry about
longevity, we’re off to the doctor. Or if not, perhaps we
should be: after all, we far too easily succumb to heart
disease and cancer, and post-menopausal women are at
risk of osteoporosis (the commonest cause of disability
for those over 50).

Recently a friend’s very fit 65-year-old mum fell gently at
home and fractured her pelvis — it’s usually this sort of
thing that makes us realise that our bones are more brittle
than we thought.

The good news is that there is much you can do to help
yourself nutritionally. It is worth noting first that
low-calorie diets increase the lifespan of lab animals and
are associated with long life in humans — so ideally, your
calorie intake should be no more than 1,800 per day
unless you’re physically very active. A low-calorie, healthy
diet apparently gives us anything between seven and ten
extra years.

What you eat can also make a difference. While no single
food guarantees youthful looks, 12 superfoods have
anti-ageing and disease-fighting properites. They are high
in antioxidants — the nutrients that reduce free radical
damage to our cells caused by sun, smoke and air
pollution, and by foods such as chargrilled, burnt meat or
rancid fats. A diet rich in antioxidants ensures that our
cells remain intact.

These foods are also low in — or free from — trans-fats,
which are linked to damage to the heart; salt, which can
lead to high blood pressure; and refined sugars, which
pile on the pounds, a risk factor for heart disease and

Try to follow my food-prescription over the next week or
so, and you should not only feel better, but look fresher,

Often vilified for being high in calories, they are also
mainly monounsaturated fat (the rest being mainly
polyunsaturated), which can help to lower bad LDL
cholesterol, a risk factor for heart disease. Avocados
contain folate, needed for cell division and blood-cell
formation, essential for cell regeneration, and
antioxidants. They include the antioxidant vitamin E (good
for the skin); lutein, a carotenoid that protects against eye
diseases; and beta-sisterol, a plant compound that can
inhibit absorption of cholesterol and help to lower
cholesterol. I eat half an avocado most days.

One of the most health-protective, anti-ageing foods —
their vitamin C content is high and their beta-carotene
means they are good for dealing with free radicals. They
contain potassium, very important in keeping blood
pressure in check. Blueberries are best eaten raw, when
their vitamin C content is at its highest — they are
delicious with muesli, or added to live yoghurt. I’d suggest
a couple of handfuls every other day.

High in fibre, with lots of beta-carotene, folate and vitamin
C to help to prevent and fight heart disease. Broccoli also
contains phytochemicals (glucosinolates), important for
the prevention of and in tackling cancer. Try a handful
every other day — steamed or boiled lightly.

High in beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant — we
absorb more beta-carotene from cooked carrots than
from raw, but since vitamin C is highest in raw carrots I'd
make sure you have raw or cooked daily. Carrots are
delicious grated in salads, with a little lemon or orange
juice and roasted sesame seeds sprinkled on top, or try
carrot and orange soup.

If you’re a non-fish-eater, hemp oil is a good vegetarian
source of omega-3 fatty acids. It's also rich in vitamin E, a
great antioxidant, and useful in preserving youthful skin.
And if you think you may start getting high on it, fear not,
the cannabinoid levels are far too low. I use hemp oil
almost every day — don't heat it, as this breaks the omega
fats down — in a 50:50 ratio with olive oil in salad
dressings, or with a little mustard and vinegar or lemon
juice. I think the best, both quality and taste, is Good Oil
(available from good food shops including Waitrose and

This contains probiotic bacteria such as lactobacilli and
bifida, which are thought to help the gut produce
anti-cancer substances called butyrates. I'd recommend a
small tub a day of organic natural yoghurt — delicious
with honey, fruits, chopped dried fruit etc.

Oats are rich in soluble fibre, which can lower levels of
LDL, so-called bad fat. They also have a low GI rating,
which means that they help to keep your energy levels up
and steady. When cooked as porridge, oats become a
medium GI food, still great for energy and for fibre that
keeps the gut moving and thus helps to prevent cancers,
including bowel and breast. Start each day with a bowl of
porridge or organic muesli.

Onions belong to the same family as garlic and are great
for lowering bad cholesterol levels and blood pressure,
and thinning the blood to minimise the risk of clotting and
resulting strokes and heart attacks. They also contain
flavonoids and sulphurs which may help to fight cancers,
natural antibiotics which help with bronchitis, colds and
flu, and a powerful antioxidant, quercetin. Spring onions,
when very fresh, are also high in vitamin C. Cooked
onions (and garlic) are still healthy but the heat destroys
the allicin, which is an antioxidant and lowers cholesterol.

This is a wonderful anti-cancer and heart-preserving food,
but you need to eat it raw to enjoy its health benefits —
throw a finely-chopped clove into a salad dressing or
guacamole. Some people chew a fresh clove every day,
but presumably they are not planning to breathe over
anyone. Try to include raw garlic and/or raw onion in
salads every other day, or finely sliced in pitta bread or
wraps filled with smoked salmon, avocado and fresh
rocket, with a squeeze of lemon.

Prunes mop up more free radicals than any other fruit.
They're high in soluble fibre, which is why they've
traditionally been used as a laxative — they gently
stimulate the bowel and soften the stool, great for helping
to avoid bowel cancer. You need to drink plenty of water
to help the fibre swell and kick-start the gut. The fibre and
antioxidants also help to lower the levels of so-called bad
cholesterol, cutting the amount of fat which can clog up
arteries. To build up a good level of fibre and antioxidants,
studies suggest 10-12 prunes a day.

Sardines — like herrings, mackerel, salmon and fresh
tuna — are very high in omega-3 fatty acids. Two portions
(a portion = 140g) a week for women, up to four a week for
men or for women above childbearing age, are one of the
best weapons against heart disease and stroke, and may
help to prevent some cancers and reduce arthritis
symptoms. Age spots and wrinkles are a sign of damage
caused by free radicals — the omega oils will also help to
prevent this.

Tea is full of antioxidants, but only when it's served black
— milk reduces its powers drastically. Some people swear
by white tea for its anti-ageing properties — although it's
expensive and I am not sure you would see the difference.
Tea (green scores higher than black) is rich in
antioxidants because of its high concentration of
epigallocatechin gallate, which is 200 times stronger than
vitamin E and 20 times stronger than vitamin C. Scientists
have shown that levels of these rise significantly in the
blood within 30-50 minutes of drinking a cup of tea. Green
tea also helps to regulate blood sugar levels and reduce
levels of harmful LDL cholesterol.

Well-hydrated skin looks years younger. Drinking 2.5
litres will also help to keep your energy levels up and
cholesterol levels down — water helps to swell the fibre in
foods such as wholegrain, oats, pulses, vegetables and
fruits, and to work its magic in lowering bad fat levels. And
if you drink this amount each day you’ll also be able to
digest food better and absorb nutrients.

Good post!

thanks bro.Firefly

the thing thats odd about it is it came from the times newservice.they are like the mouthpiece of the british government.

hope it means someone in westminister is waking up to reality !
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between 2 wolves."

"One is Evil. It is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."
