Your brain is your greatest resource! Use it by design to help you learn how to stay healthier and younger for longer!

—Arlene R. Taylor PhD

Q.  Recently I heard you talk about the energy factories in cell mitochondria, and that 1% of our DNA is found in one's maternal mitochondria. Is there anything I can do to help keep my energy factories healthy?

A. Good question. In addition to living a Longevity Lifestyle, some foods/beverages are believed to harm those little energy power houses inside your cells. This may be because they seem to increase free radical production that can harm the mitochondria. These include:

  • Sugar
  • Processed meats with high sodium content
  • Refined and processed packaged foods, especially with lots of fat or hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats
  • Sodas (regular or diet)

Ancestral Mediterranean Cuisine, now believed to be a good option for living well for a long time, recommends avoiding these, as well.
