Home / Juvenon Health Journal / What does Harvard think you should worry about?

 

Anti-aging is first and foremost about stopping premature aging and illness. Our goal at Juvenon is to add 5 quality years of health to 1,000,000 people’s lives. So to reach our goal, we took a look at what makes people sick.

A landmark study, led by researchers from Harvard, published a report called The Preventable Causes of Death in the United States: Comparative Risk Assessment of Dietary, Lifestyle, and Metabolic Risk Factors and here’s what they found. First, don’t smoke, or if you do, quit smoking. But everyone knows that!

But surprisingly, grouped together, the largest risk factors are called “metabolic syndrome.” These are highlighted in the table below, and make up 46% of the preventable deaths or 914,000 deaths per year. About twice the number deaths caused by smoking!

Annual U.S. Preventable Deaths by Risk Factor

Tobacco smoking 467,000
High blood pressure 395,000
Overweight–obesity (high BMI) 216,000
Physical inactivity 191,000
High blood glucose 190,000
High LDL cholesterol 113,000
High dietary salt (sodium) 102,000
Low dietary omega-3 fatty acids (seafood) 84,000
High dietary trans fatty acids 82,000
Alcohol use 64,000
Low intake of fruits and vegetables 58,000
Low dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) 15,000
   
Total 1,977,000
Total of metabolic risk factors for chronic disease 914,000
Metabolic risk factors as a percent of total 46%

 

Simply put, metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions — increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels — that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

Metabolic syndrome is associated with aging. Fifty percent of US Adults 60 years of age or older were estimated to have the metabolic syndrome according to a study in the May 19, 2015 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.

A hallmark of metabolic syndrome is an aged and poorly functioning energy metabolism, and at Juvenon we know a lot about energy metabolism. So, we have made rejuvenating your energy metabolism a key focus of our company. By helping to rejuvenate your energy metabolism, we hope to reduce the potential impact of metabolic syndrome, and add years of quality to your life and the lives of 1,000,000 other people.

There are two remarkable benefits that healthy aging offers:
First: don’t get sick as you age.
Second: restore your health and eliminate your health concerns

The key to healthy aging is a robust energy metabolism which supplies cellular fuel you use to maintain your health.
