"DNA repair theory, oxidative stress theory, immune theory, membrane theory, waste accumulation theory, calorie restriction theory, etc.), free radicals lie at the heart of most damage theories of aging. First identified more than forty years ago by Gerschman, and championed as the key to aging ever since by biochemist Denham Harman of the University of Nebraska, free radicals are molecules with unpaired electrons in their outer shell. Such molecules can wreak havoc on normal cells by attempting to steal an electron from another molecule in order to restore their balance."

"Lenny Jason, one of the country's leading CFS researchers, calls the envelope theory. The theory goes like this. Anyone—healthy or sick—has just so much energy available for use in any single day. The hardest thing someone with a new onset of severe fatigue has to do is to learn how to budget the energy he or she does have. This is where the envelope comes in. View the envelope as holding all of the energy you have available in the course of a day. The best way to figure out how much energy you are expending each day is to count your steps with a device called a pedometer."

"But, how do we separate theory from proof, fact from fiction? That is the important question. What difference do these various waters make to the energy and growth of living organisms? If they make little or no difference to vitality, they are merely theory and perhaps good marketing promotion. What really should get our attention is results! Energy Comparisons of Different Waters Listed below are some average energy comparisons for different kinds of water from the research done by Mr. and Mrs. Excelex."

"This is referred to as the theory of random mutation. Another theory is cumulative error. RNA viruses, such as influenza, have mutation rates more than 10,000 times higher than human cells. After several mutations, genetic changes occur that result in a new strain. The end product can be a very different virus from what it was originally. Another reason mutations occur is due to immune pressure. This theory assumes that the virus is self-protective and has strategies to avoid detection by the host's immune system and manage to successfully survive within the host."

"A branch of public choice theory that Nobel laureate George J. Stigler pioneered, entitled the economic theory of regulation, or industry capture, helps explain how private firms induce agencies to adopt regulations that alter the law in ways that benefit them financially.40 Industry capture promotes market concentration which has the effect of raising prices for goods and services, stifling innovation, reducing economic opportunity, and limiting consumer choice."
- Jonathan W. Emord, The Rise of Tyranny (Get the book.)

"Buchanan along with Gordon Tullock developed the "public choice" theory of economics. That theory, in part, explains the behavior of federal regulatory agency and commission heads by associating their public actions with pursuit of self-interest. When political decisions favor self-interest they often come at the expense of the public. The threat of self-interest to the public becomes acute when an agency head is possessed of independent governing power."

"Theory of Simplicity During my research I discovered an interesting theory that I want to share with you. Perhaps you have already heard it used in another context. It is called Ockham's Razor. William of Ockham was a 14th-century English philosopher and Franciscan monk who played a major role in the transition from medieval to modern thought. His theory states that when evaluating things which make a similar prediction, the simplest solution is correct. It is interesting that in our contemporary society the opposite of Ockham's razor is true when it is applied to health and fitness."

"Let me assure you, this is not a theory. Scientists have known about the behavior (if not the actual existence) of these genes for years. Killer genes clearly deserve their label for the chillingly-yet miraculously—methodical and predictable way they activate to carry out their instructions. I suspect that soon you, too, will be awed by their power. Recent discoveries have upended the mechanisms of aging and death that most of us have been taught as immutable. First, the usual "wear and tear" theory of aging is (pardon the expression) dead wrong."

"Many researchers believe fiber may help in fighting breast cancer. This theory is based upon the role of estrogen, and the evidence that shows how prolonged exposure to increased estrogen (and even progesterone) can increase cancer risk. In breast cancer, tumor growth is stimulated by estrogen. Fiber actually binds with estrogen and escorts it out of the body through normal bowel elimination. Hence, the theory goes that fiber can slow down the growth of breast tumors because it binds to estrogen and lowers the body's levels of this hormone, which can worsen tumor growth."

"To test this theory, a study of eleven patients with PVD was performed to demonstrate the relationship between ischemia and the formation of acyl carnitine. The PVD subjects were compared to eleven age-matched controls without PVD. All subjects walked on a treadmill to an end point of either pain, or in the control group, to a maximal workload. Patients with PVD demonstrated an increase in plasma long-chain acyl carnitine, which persisted for four minutes, at peak exercise."

"Techniques such as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), spectroscopy, positron emission tomography (PET), and genetic modification (transgenesis) in mouse models of heart disease have allowed this theory to be confirmed. We now know for certain that ATP levels decrease in the hypertro-phied and failing hearts by up to 30 percent. However, because the loss of ATP substrates is progressive, it is generally not easy to detect until the heart is in severe failure. This progressive depletion of the energy pools adds to, and is not the result of, a progressive worsening of the disease."

"The implication of both the ancient texts and quantum theory is that in the unseen worlds, we create the blueprint for the relationships, careers, successes, and failures of the visible one. From this perspective, our reality works like a great cosmic screen that allows us to see the nonphysical energy of our emotions and beliefs (that is, our anger, hate, and rage; as well as our love, compassion, and understanding) projected in the physical medium of life."

"The problem was that the theory didn't pan out in laboratory tests. The experiments showed that animals kept their memories and continued their lives even though the parts of their brains that were believed to be responsible for such functions were removed. In other words, there wasn't a direct link between the memories and a physical place in the brain. It was obvious that the mechanical view of brain and memory wasn't the answer. Something else was happening?something that turned out to be both mysterious and wonderful."

"The unified field theory has been put into retirement," he begins. "It is so difficult to employ mathematically that I have not been able to verify it somehow, in spite of all my efforts."4 It may not be surprising that the science of today doesn't have all the answers. The quantum discoveries of the last century have led to a surprising and radical new way for us to think of ourselves and how the universe works. This novel way of thinking is so radical, in fact, that it flies directly in the face of what science has asked us to believe for nearly 300 years."

"He went on: "There's this whole 'dirty theory' that you need some of those exposures—that if you take all of them away, you're going to pay a price. You're going to develop more allergies, which may mean more asthma, which may mean more sinus disease—all of these disorders snowball. I don't think that we were meant, evolution-wise, to grow up in an absolutely sterile environment. You're supposed to be exposed to these things as a child so that your immune system will develop appropriately."

"Remember the "dirty theory" or "hygiene hypothesis" I discussed in the previous chapter? Well, it applies to asthma, too. Lay off the heavy-duty chemical cleaners and antibacterial products. To develop properly, a child's immune system does require some exposure to bacteria. These prevention tactics are all the more important because, once your child has asthma, she's more likely to develop not just other allergies, but a range of different health problems as well. "Everything is interlinked," Dr. Manny Alvarez told me. "

"Stephen Spindler, it is our theory that calorie restriction turns on the anti-aging and theoretically the anti-diabetic genes. In our dietary approach, there is actually no restriction, but the participant is invited to enjoy a delicious, healthy cuisine. This is the powerful secret of the success of this program. In the second week, a four-day course shows people how to let go of their belief that diabetes is incurable. It also shows people how to let go of all the psychological programming and habits that create the diabetes lifestyle."

"Contemporary physics guru Gary Zukav, in a recent history of physics, explains that John Von Neumann's "discovery that our thought processes (the realm of symbols) project illusory restrictions onto the real world leads to essentially the same discovery that led Einstein to the general theory of relativity." The general theory of relativity shows us that the human mind follows different rules than the real world does. A rational mind, with the impressions that it receives from its limited perspective, forms structures that thereafter determine what it further will and will not freely accept."

"A new theory on how exercise serves to work like insulin stems from the special proteins called GLUT-4 transporters that usher glucose into the muscle cells. Exercise causes GLUT-4 transporters to rise to the surface of the cellular membrane, where they can shuttle circulating glucose into the cell, increasing insulin sensitivity and decreasing insulin needs. Findings from the Nurses' Health Study and Health Professionals Follow-Up Study suggest that walking briskly for a half hour every day reduces the risk of developing Type-2 diabetes by 30 percent."

"In 1944, Max Planck, the man many consider to be the father of quantum theory, shocked the world by saying that there is a "matrix" of energy that provides the blueprint for our physical world.5 In this place of pure energy, everything begins, from the birth of stars and DNA to our deepest relationships, peace between nations, and personal healing. The willingness to embrace the matrix's existence in mainstream science is still so new that scientists have yet to agree upon a single name for it. Some simply call it the "field."

"A study that supports this theory looked at a group who consumed a breakfast low in calcium and vitamin D compared to a group who ate a breakfast high in calcium and vitamin D. The latter ate an average of three hundred fewer calories in the twenty-four hours following their breakfast. Vitamin D Helps Alot Research keeps unearthing one find after another that cites vitamin D deficiency as a major culprit in disease development."

"She's subscribing to the theory that time takes its toll; she's just a victim of the ravages of years. Another patient will say "Diabetes runs in the family," meaning that his genetics predetermines his fate. He will have diabetes at some point, he assures himself, and he has always expected that the day of doom would come. But let the evidence in this book convince you otherwise. Health isn't about genes, it's about choices. Capture a healthy image in your mind, massage that idea, and shoot for your best goal with all your energy and optimism."

"According to this theory, children today are too sheltered from infectious agents in their environment. The result? Their immune systems don't have the necessary stimuli to develop properly. "Parents," Dr. Boscamp said, "have always wanted to create a really sterile environment for their kids. The general concept was Tm going to put a bubble around my kids; I'm going to protect them.'" But many recent innovations have enabled some parents to take this natural protective impulse too far."

"As predicted by our theory, increasing the concentration of magnesium and reducing the background level of noise led to the largest increases of plasticity ever reported in scientific literature," Liu said. The researchers have identified and are now studying several families of drugs that may restore learning and memory in animals. Most important, Liu said, "This new theory may help create strategies to prevent aging-induced loss of synaptic plasticity."

"By developing a comprehensive theory of the causative level of diabetes we become significantly empowered to develop an overall approach for the reversal of diabetes. The word reversing is different from ameliorating, modifying, or decreasing the amount of medication needed. I am not talking about managing Type-2 diabetes, which is the old paradigm, exemplified by a belief system stated in the New York Times and backed by most doctors treating diabetes: "Diabetes has no cure. It is progressive and fatal."

"The theory is that Native Americans have what is called the 'thrifty gene,'" Schulz explains. "They're genetically geared to conserving and being thrifty in terms of their calories, so that they don't waste it in case a famine comes along. They're going to be the ones to survive." The continual availability of food in the United States today appears to have contributed to the Pimas' problems with obesity, Schulz says. The thrifty gene, which allows Indians to survive long periods of famine in Mexico, works against them on the Gila River reservation. "
