Health Roundup for Old folks By Mrs Vera West

     Here is a quick summary of some good health advice I have read, which is particularly relevant for older people.

     Cognitive decline can be halted, it is hypothesised, by a combination of omega 3, from oily fish or capsules, and B vitamins:

     Coffee can reduce the risk of mortality from all causes and increase longevity:

     Dark chocolate and olive oil improve cardiovascular health:

     If you cannot find olive oil enriched chocolate then I suppose one could wash down some sugar free 90 percent cocoa chocolate, with a spoonful of olive oil.  It is not so bad. As well, olive oil is hypothesised to have anti-cancer benefits:

     The general picture that emerges from reading these health articles is that most of the things that help cardiovascular health, also help prevent cancer.  Many herbs have an impact.  For example, there is thought that cayenne pepper may help with various heart issues:

     Without the vast big medicine superstructure which we now have, in the future people may have to turn to folk remedies. This is what it may be like in a few more years of social decay:

     In the future, after the present crop of pests die out, the main threat will be from disease, as it was in pre-modern times:

     See, I have lost my faith in humanity, following the same sex vote, and the failure to protect religious freedoms.  Can you imagine what it will be like for the sub-urbans, when the lights go out, and do not come back on again?  Someone wrote about that, but my memory is fading.
