T’is the Season

It’s football season.   I’m not a big fan.   I find it violent.

Yet, I appreciate that it’s our nation’s obsession.  Football has far surpassed baseball as America’s favorite sport.  I’m not including NASCAR as a sport, please forgive me.

The Heisman Trophy is arguably college’s premier award.   It’s awarded yearly to the best college football player.   The hype for this exceeds all other sporting awards combined.

Is this award or others predictive of future success?

The answer is a resounding NO.

Heisman Trophy winner Jason White of Oklahoma beat out Larry Fitzgerald and Eli Manning in 2003.

Fitzgerald and Manning are 2 of the highest salaried players in the NFL today.

No one’s heard about Jason White.  He didn’t even get signed and when he joined the Tennessee Titans, he didn’t last the season.

The point is that there are good predictors of success and poor ones.  It pays to look at the good one’s and ignore the ‘popular’ ones like the Heisman.

While it’s no secret that many believe the Heisman Trophy is a poor predictor of future football success, the same could be said about some of the “health predictors” people rely on to predict entry into the “nonagenarian or centenarian” club.

We have the capability to live well into our 90’s, 100’s and beyond.  Recently, I heard the statistic that our body’s life’s capacity is 120+ years.

The key, as we all know, is quality of life.  Living without medical assistance and with minimal medication.  Having minimal exposure to the “sick-care” system that we now have is a goal.  Living with our full mental capacity and living well is the goal too.

What if I could show you a list of predictors of health?

A list that, if followed can, not only extend your life but improve its quality.  A list that can help you avoid all sorts of inflammation-related problems such as heart disease, joint and muscle pain, dementia, wrinkles and yes, even erectile dysfunction?

This is a checklist of things you can do to materially improve your chances of aging unaffected by the usual afflictions.

Sounds too good to be true?

It’s all based on well-done studies published in reputable, refereed medical journals.   It’s a list I learned from Dr. Oz’s co-author and friend, Dr. Michael Roizen, the Chief Wellness officer at The Cleveland Clinic.
