Could an 'elixir of life' actually exist ?

Scientists in Kazakhstan claim to have developed a drink that they are hailing as an 'elixir of life'.

Kazakhstan's leader, Nursultan Nazarbayev gave orders to Nazarbayev University asking them to develop the elixir back in 2009. The yoghurt based drink known as 'nar' might not sound particularly revolutionary but scientists outside of Kazakhstan have expressed an interest in its development.

"Definitely, the Kazaks are on to something," said Roger Highfield. "There is a lot of interest in trying to tweak your microbial culture. The complicated mixture of microbes has big influences on obesity on diabetes, maybe even on heart attacks so we are trying to tweak that with probiotics now."

"Dr Jennifer Rampling, an expert on elixirs based in Cambridge said: "He is the latest in a long line of rulers and important people who have hired or been approached by scientists and physicians who claim to have found some kind of elixir capable of prolonging life."

Its similiar to kefir ,which is the stuff they drink in the Himalayas ,and live to be 140 . It has nothing to do with resveratol . Then again,they breathe only clean air,eat no tainted processed or gmo anything ,but its the yogurt that keeps em young !

simple words of wisdom: who does not want to get old should hang himself when young. Life is finite.

Well, if this is the so called "Elixhr" of life...that's just going to make things worse! Humans were not made to last forever! Immortality is just not possible. If it was, imagine how terrible our world would be! Sure, good people could have access to it, but would you want someone like Stalin or Bin Laden to get a hold of something like that? (Yes, I know they're dead, but you get the point.) Plus, our world is already over-populated. We can hardly feed all the people in the United States, much less the world! Name one country that has virtually no problems feeding ALL of its inhabitants. Th... [More]

The vegan candida diet vegetarian plan is easy to follow but additionally makes a lot of health sense. There are many known reasons for being vegetarian and it's a matter of individual choice, but if you're dealing with candida overgrowth it makes sense to avoid meat. The alternative is eating natural, free-range meat only but this is often pricey and does still contain a little bit of antibiotics. The difference is that organic standards only allow the use of antibiotics when essential. The fact that animals are reared in a free-range environment does mean that the likelihood of disease and f... [More]

How do they know it works, they only started developing it 2 years ago.......................on the request of their leader. Reading the rest of the article and why they even started to develop is all a bit of a joke. Sacha Baron Cohen would love this.
