Is Glucose Making You Old?

Is Glucose Making You Old?
By RealAge
This Week's Tips

Stop when you feel full -- always easier said than done. But what if doing so helped halt the aging process?

A recent study of yeast cells hints at the antiaging power of saying no to seconds. Seems those little microorganisms showed signs of premature aging when exposed to excessive glucose -- the energy substance into which all calories consumed eventually turn.

Eating Younger
Your blood glucose levels naturally go up when you eat. But when you eat a lot -- too much -- they can really soar. And the yeast study suggests that this could have a bad effect on cells, stressing them out and making them more prone to damage. Kind of makes skipping dessert sound like a potential fountain of youth. Here's another calorie trick that helps turn back the clock.

Happy birthday to Cary Grant - I loved him!

Grant was a favorite actor of Alfred Hitchcock, notorious for disliking actors, who said that Grant was "the only actor I ever loved in my whole life". Grant appeared in such Hitchcock classics as Suspicion (1941), Notorious (1946), To Catch a Thief (1955) and North by Northwest (1959). Biographer Patrick McGilligan wrote that, in 1965, Hitchcock asked Grant to star in Torn Curtain (1966), only to learn that Grant had decided to retire after making one more film, Walk, Don't Run (1966); Paul Newman was cast instead in Torn Curtain, opposite Julie Andrews.
