Organic food helps us prevent premature aging

Readers of bioecology real They are well aware that organic food respects the environment and is produced naturally, in this way it avoids harming the environment and takes care of the health of those who consume it. Can you help us too? stop aging, Let’s look at it very briefly.

what protects our health

By choosing organic food, and among many other benefits, we’ll avoid all the additives—this is just a short list—that are in many of the elaborate and processed products found in supermarkets. With it, the human body will have to make less effort and spend energy to eliminate them, if possible.

  • Nitrates and Nitrites: They are used as a colourant, flavoring and to increase the shelf life of the product. They are added to meat products. They can form nitrosamines of carcinogenic action.
  • potassium bromate: Used in all types of bread to help with kneading the dough during baking. It is listed as a carcinogen and is banned in some countries.
  • propylparaben It is an endocrine disruptor, that is, it causes very serious damage to our hormones. It is used in pancakes, muffins, dairy products and some industrial beverages.
  • Hydroxyanisole Butyrate: is a carcinogenic endocrine disruptor that lowers testosterone and thyroxine levels. It is found in meat and chips, or as a flavoring.
  • butyl hydroxytoluene: This is another endocrine disruptor that is used in pet food and pasta, pizza, noodles, instant rice, and to make artificial flavorings.
  • propyl gallatePreservatives in products that contain fat, which may act as an endocrine disruptor due to its estrogenic activity.
  • diacetyl: Gives “flavor” to popcorn with yogurt, cheese, and butter. It deals with severe and irreversible damage to the lungs (bronchiolitis obliterans).
  • to make delicious: Appear in more than 80,000 food products. Flavoring mixes are sometimes very complex and a product may contain up to a hundred different agents. Flavored extracts often come from transgenics. There are “natural” flavors with synthetic chemical agents (propylene glycol, BHA).
  • artificial color: They add no nutritional value and may be contaminated with furans (related to certain types of cancer). They affect the behavior of children (hyperactivity, inattention).
  • PhosphateThey are in more than 20,000 food products and have been linked to heart and kidney diseases.
  • aluminum Aluminum is mainly stored in the bones in our body. It is still used as a stabilizer in the food industry. It produces neurological changes in behavioral disorders, learning difficulties or motor response.

Telomeres, Our Important “Hourglass”

Now, does organic food really help with aging more slowly? Of course, and to answer this question we will not resort to statistics. Suffice it to cite the amazing cellular activity of telomere, For a long time it was believed that human cells in culture are immortal and can divide infinitely. But in 1960, researchers Leonard Hayflick He could not keep the cells alive in his laboratory. Initially she thought she was a poor caretaker, but no matter how well she treated her cells, the problem kept repeating itself. The cells divided a certain number of times, and then died. If they froze the cells after a series of divisions and brought them back to life, the cells continued to divide, but when they reached the same number as the previous one, they died. Somehow the cells ‘remembered’ the divisions they took before hibernation.

hephilic He suspected that each cell contained a kind of division counter, an internal clock that tells it when to die. When he published his discovery in 1961, it was heavily criticized and even ridiculed by the scientific community. The dogma of cellular immortality was firmly rooted and he had to wait more than ten years for his discovery to be recognized. Human cells are not immortal, and only divide a certain number of times: what scientists now know as Hayflick’s Limit,

What determines this partition boundary? Telomeres.

Scientists explain to us that a telomere is a region of repetitive DNA sequences at the end of a chromosome. Telomeres (from Greek telos, “end,” and mere, “part”) protect the ends of chromosomes from fraying or tangling. Each time a cell divides, telomeres shorten slightly. Eventually, they become so small that the cell can no longer divide properly, and the cell dies. So protecting these extremes is a difficult task.

As they get shorter, telomeres act like a clock for the cell (counting how old a cell is, and limiting how many times a cell can divide without losing important parts of the chromosome’s DNA) ). And their activity is fascinating. For example, cancer cells—with an enormous ability to self-divide—prolong their telomeres so that they can divide, when in fact they shouldn’t anymore. Therefore, Along with the importance of choosing organic food, proper diet plan also needs to be kept in mind.,
