If you’re scratching your head, you may be missing out on an important health clue. A spate of recent research suggests that your blood type—whether A, B, AB, or O—may influence your risk for a variety of health conditions, from cardiac disease to cancer.

The research is still early and scientists aren’t yet sure how to explain the connections. Although you can’t change your blood type, however, knowing about added risks can still be helpful.

It’s the most painful part of Alzheimer’s, when your own parent can’t remember your face, let alone your name. But for one daughter of a dementia patient, she got to experience the joy of having her mother recognize her, if only for a moment.

YouTube user Kelly Gunderson uploaded this touching video of a visit with her mother, simply stating, “My 87 year old mother with Alzheimer’s knew who I was, even if just for a moment.”

The short clip shows the moment Gunderson’s mother remembers her daughter’s name, much to her daughter’s surprise. “Didn’t I name you Kelly?” the mother says.

Sure we’ve known all along getting older means heading down a path of graying hair, a couple of wrinkles here and there, and maybe losing the youthful physique we once had. We can come to terms with that. But it’s not OK to be feeling the effects of aging before our time.

Landmark Alzheimer’s Study Pinpoints Protein That Protects Aging Brain

The conundrum has stumped doctors for years. Why do neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s affect only the elderly? Why do some people live to be over 100 with normal brain functioning while others develop dementia decades earlier?

Now, a new study by Harvard scientists points to a possible answer, one that could spark further research that — ultimately — could lead to new drugs and treatments for dementia.

Researchers have found that a protein active during fetal brain development, called REST, switches back on later in life to protect aging neurons from various stresses, including the toxic effects of abnormal proteins. But in those with Alzheimer’s and mild cognitive impairment, the protein — RE1-Silencing Transcription factor — is absent from key brain regions.

There are lots of tricks out there designed to make people look and feel younger. For example, one study showed that just the scent of grapefruit can actually prompt the male brain to believe that a woman is about five years younger than she actually is.

But there also are some supposedly real ways to impact how long you will live. By eating well and making smart choices, you can help slow the aging process. Typically, fruits and vegetables — packed with antioxidants — can help get rid of the free radicals from your skin that cause you to age prematurely. And, generally speaking, eating well-balanced meals and exercising regularly can help you stay fit and live longer.

Meet Felton Campbell And Mike Huard, Bodybuilding Grandpas

Among the bulging pecs and rippling thighs on display at the 2013 Oregon Ironman Competition, Felton Campbell and Mike Huard’s stood out. At 61 and 62 respectively, the two were the oldest competitors there, going toe to toe with 242 men more than half their age.

Though Campbell took first place over his friend in the competition’s Masters Men Over 60 category, the two aren’t just competing within their age group. “Right now, me and Mike’s goal is to beat someone in their 40s,” Campbell said. “You’re never too old.”

“Here’s where [age] works to our advantage — it’s because we’re mature, we’ve been through all the testosterone spurts, we’re having fun and it’s keeping us really healthy,” Huard added.

The pair join a fit group of other post-50 bodybuilders making jaws drop: world’s oldest female bodybuilder, Ernestine Shepherd, and vegan bodybuilder Jim Morris.
