Protein Helps With Longevity

Posted on December 6, 2010

A new study sheds light on the association of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) and longer life. Middle-aged mice given a high-BCAA diet were found to have their life spans increased by an average of 12 percent.

With obesity, not only is there a higher risk of diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, stroke, and many other diseases, life expectancy is much less. And now there’s a “bonus” of nearly $10,000 added to an overweight person’s yearly expenses.

Over 40 percent of the average American diet consists of empty calories: things like pasta, pastry, chips, white breads, candies, sweets, sugar, white rice and processed foods. For example, if you consume 2,000 calories a day, roughly 1,200 of those come from nutritious foods, the rest have very little or no nutritional value. But 1,200 calories are not enough to deliver all the nutrition our bodies require. Hence, most people are nutrient-deficient, but still carry extra weight..
