Richard asks…

In the movie Jack whats his aging disease called?

I had just finished watching the movie Jack with Robin Williams. Jack ages 4 times as normal. When he is ten he looks forty. Is this disease or syndrome real? If so what is the name of it.

vti answers:

I’m not sure but I found this…

The movie begins during a Halloween party with Karen Powell (Diane Lane) going into labor, and being rushed to the hospital. Although the delivery is successful, the baby is premature, born after only ten weeks of pregnancy, is diagnosed with an exaggerated form of Werner syndrome, an aging disease.

According to his doctor, as this very rare autosomal recessive disorder progresses, Jack Powell (Robin Williams) will age at a rate four times than normal children due to his internal clock that seems to be developing faster.

Laura asks…

Old age and Heart disease, how are they related?

i guess we all know that old age means more chance of developing heart disease. But is there a more specific reason what it is so?
i need an answer fast for my bio project

vti answers:

As the body ages the vessels which carry blood throughout the body lose some of their elasticity therefore contributing to hardening of the arteries and heart disease. Also, what we put into our bodies chemically plays a big role in the arteies and other body organs not functioning well.

Helen asks…

What food is good for anti aging?

Salmon, tomatoes, green tea, any more significant other diets good for anti aging?

vti answers:

Anti-aging food can enhance your health, energy, mental fitness and
slow many of the changes that are marks of growing old.

Tomatoes. A major source of the antioxidant lycopene that reduces the
risk of cancer by 40% — notably prostate, lung and stomach cancers —
and increases cancer survival. Tomato eaters function better mentally
in old age and suffer half as much heart disease. Concentrated tomato
sauces have 5 times more lycopene than fresh tomatoes, and canned
tomatoes have three times more than fresh.

Olive Oil. Shown to help reduce death from heart disease and cancer.
Recent research shows that heart-attack survivors on a Mediterranean
diet had half the death rates of those on an ordinary low-fat diet.
Olive oil is also high in antioxidant activity.

Red Grapes, including red grape juice and red wine. Red grapes have
moderate antioxidant power, while purple grape juice has four times
more antioxidant activity than orange or tomato juice. Red wine (not
white) has about the same antioxidant capacity as purple grape juice
or tea. French research show that drinking red wine in moderation
increases longevity, but excessive drinking has the opposite effect,
so limit to two glasses per day. Drink grape juice.

Garlic. German researchers have found that garlic is packed with
antioxidants know to help fend off cancer, heart disease and all-over
aging, and prolong cancer survival time. Let crushed garlic “rest”
about 10 minutes before cooking to preserve disease-fighting agents.

Spinach. Second among vegetables only to garlic in antioxidant
capacity and is also rich in folic acid, which helps fight cancer,
heart disease and mental disorders. New University of Kentucky
research shows folic acid may help prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Eat
both raw and steamed for best benefit.

Whole grains. A University of Minnesota study suggests the more
whole grains you eat, the lower your odds of death by 15%. Whole
grains contain anticancer agents and help stabilize blood sugar and
insulin, which may promote longevity. Whole-grain “dark” breads,
cereals such as All Bran, and “old fashioned” oatmeal are an excellent

Salmon, and other fatty fish. Contains high amounts of omega-3 fat
that performs miracles throughout the body, fighting virtually every
chronic disease known. Without it, your brain can’t think, your heart
can’t beat, your arteries clog, and joints become inflamed. You need
one ounce a day, or two servings of salmon, sardines, mackerel,
herring or tuna per week.

Nuts. Eating more than 5 ounces a week can cut heart-attack deaths
in women by 40% and help prevent deadly irregular heart beats in men a
Harvard University study found. Almonds and walnuts lower blood
cholesterol. Most of the fat in nuts is the good-type monounsaturated
and/or omega-3. Unsalted nuts are best.

Blueberries. High in antioxidants, Tufts University researchers say a
half-cup of blueberries a day can retard aging and can block brain
changes leading to decline and even reverse failing memory.
Tea. Green or black tea has equal antioxidant benefit. One cup a day
can cut heart disease risk in half Harvard researchers found. Make
from loose tea or tea bags, instant and bottled tea has little effect

Donna asks…

Do I have an aging disease? I have been aging extremely fast?

I’m 23, but I look early 30’s. The condition of my facial skin looks extremely bad, it is red 100% of the time, my skin flakes continuously, I have deep wrinkles around my mouth and forehead, and plenty of wrinkles (not as deep as around my mouth, but clearly visible to anyone) all around my eyes, which are far reaching and spread over half of my face. Everyone I meet are always shocked when I tell them i’m only 23, they always think i’m much, much older.

But anyway, the main reason why I ask if I have an aging disease, is because this only started not very long ago, a few months after I turned 20(or first signs anyway). I’ll just say what my appearance of age was.
1. At 20, most people would guess 16/17. An elderly couple assumed I was 15 when I asked for a beer.

2. At 21, people began to guess around 19/20. By this time, wrinkles were forming around my mouth & forehead.

3. At 22, I looked mid 20’s. This was when my facial skin began to go bright red, wrinkles around my eyes formed a few months before turning 22, and wrinkles on my forehead and mouth seriously deepened.

4. Now at 23, it looks horrifyingly bad. All wrinkles have gotten much deeper, there is a large amount of fat volume loss under my cheeks, making them look very much sunk in, fat volume loss under my eyes is starting to appear, the wrinkles around my eyes to clearly visible to anyone now, and they stretch completely right across my face, and my skin is starting to look kind of dead looking.

So what kind of aging disease do I have? i’m pretty sure I have one, considering how fast i’ve been aging.
I do not drink alcohol, I don’t smoke, I don’t do drugs, I don’t spend much time in the sun. I don’t eat unhealthy. The only thing i’m not getting much of, is exercise. But i’m still fairly energetic, and can run for a minimum of 10 minutes without stopping, and I can do up to 60 consecutive push ups. So i’m not completely unfit. And I don’t use any cosmetic products whatsoever. I did try it in 2011 for a month, to try and stop the aging, and just did normal routine stuff other people do. This is also when the redness and flaking appeared(wrinkles around eyes were already there before trying anything). (all I used were cleanser, moisturizer, exfoliate, (all dermalogica brand)and followed the instructions exactly. I stopped after a month, because of clear visible redness, and flaking skin)

vti answers:

You don’t have an ‘aging disease’. Progeria isn’t something that comes on at 23… It’s seen in people under about 12 and so so rare.

You likely have a skin condition… Things like facial eczema or other allergies can cause the skin to appear unduly wrinkly. That said, be careful that you aren’t being too hard on yourself as the previous post has already pointed out.

Book in to see your GP who will be able to assess whether or not you have a skin condition and provide you with some treatment or advice. If necessary, they can also refer you to a dermatologist.

Jenny asks…

At what age does gallbladder disease happen?

I’m 21 and my upper right abdomen hurts badly, I thought it might be my gallbladder, but someone told me gallbladder disease happens to older people. I need to know if anyone has had the simular problem as I do?

vti answers:

Gall bladder disease does not depend on age. I have seen many patients younger than you are, even as young as EIGHT years, who have had gall bladder surgery.
