Oldest Woman in the World Dies at 115 – Just Because You’re Old . . .

by

Bob McCauley, CNC, MH

. . . doesn’t mean you’re healthy.  In fact, no one older ever does.  The idea that someone dies of old age is just a way of saying that there is no telling what killed that person exactly because essentially some and then all of their organs stopped working.  This happens because disease has long ago entered their bodies and has destroyed them.   It is the inevitable result of living on a cooked food diet, especially a diet that is highly acidic, such as processed and fried foods.

One of the common refrains I hear is that they know someone who ate junk foods and/or smoked their whole life and lived to be 98.  Perhaps they were never ill until the final months of their lives.  Why someone who never smoked dies of cancer at 25 years old and someone who smokes lives to be 98 is not really a mystery if we were to look at their lifestyles in its entirety, including whether they had a positive or negative attitude, or if they were a spiritual or religious by nature.  My old friend and mentor Jack Lalanne died in January 2011 and I wrote that he only lived to 96 years old because he was only on a 70% raw food diet and the 30% of his diet that was not comprised of raw fruits and vegetables was acidic and what inevitably lead to his demise.

The Oldest Woman in the World died recently.  She was confined to her bed for several years, which doesn’t sound like much of a life to me.  My 7 Component Health Protocol is more about quality of health today rather than longevity, living a long life.  For without quality of health what is life worth?  If you can’t get out of bed for years, what kind of life do you have?  We hear all the time that modern medicine has extended the life expectancy by 15 years in the last 50 years, and that people are living long lives each and every year.  While that is true, what is the quality of their health and therefore their lives in those final years?  I would rather live 50 years with quality health than to live 100 years and suffer the misery of incessant disease.

No one wants to live to be 100 years old because everyone they see who is 100+ is decrepit.  However, if you woke up on your 100th birthday and felt great, jumped out of bed and said “I’ve got lots to do today so I better get moving” you would relish the thought of living to 100+ years.   We live with the perception that old is good when in fact that living to an old age is worthless without quality of health.  And we live with the idea that aging and becoming decrepit is inevitable, when it is the result of what we put in our bodies, which in the end is our choice.  “We are all the author of our own health or disease.” ~ Buddha
