 Veggie-heavy, stress-reducingregimen prolongs cell life
By Makiko Kitamura
 September 19, 2013
(Bloomberg) -- The fountain of youth may simply be a healthy diet and reduced stress after all,not a magic pill or expensive cosmetics.Comprehensive lifestyle changes, including more fruit and vegetables as well as meditation and yoga, were shown to reverse signs of aging at the cellular level for the first time in a study published this week. Adopting a diet rich in unprocessed foods combined with moderate exercise and stressmanagement over five years increased the length of telomeres, the ends of chromosomes linkedto aging, according to a study of 35 men published in the
 Lancet 
medical journal. No previousstudy has shown the effect of lifestyle changes on telomere length, the authors say.The research, led by Dean Ornish, founder of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute, adds
to evidence of the benefits of healthy habits. Ornish’s Lifestyle Heart Trial, published in 1998,
showed a reversal of coronary heart disease over five years. Patients who receive 72 hours of 
training from medical professionals on Ornish’s program for reversing heart disease have been
reimbursed by Medicare since January 2011.
