Well it just so happens that I know a little bit about y'all as well, the hnf4a mutation is involved in diabetes of the Ashkenazi.

Also there is an Ashkenazi man in New York City that is 108 or so and still works and his brother is 104 or so and his sister died at 106. He eats whatever he wants and never gets sick, his favorite for lunch is raw hamburger. Anyways he was on 60 minutes a couple years ago and said people were studying him to find out more about his longevity. They may have come up with something or not as I have not followed his progress, so you may want to look further. Or it might have just been a nbc or cbs news segment that he was on?

All hail the hot-chocolate imbibin' Dr. S! :D Well-played on your case, Stavia! That's...well...amazing. Simply amazing. Not surprised, though - you know what to do and are super-doc. And you got him to comply! That's awesome. Hope you enjoyed DS! Cuz you're gonna rock that practice. ..rock it inside out. ;)

Sorry. Couldn't resist.

Gosh did I rock. I'm hoarse. And deaf. In my Pink Floyd rock chick Tshirt. Patients saw me lolol. (small place). I'm actually a Why Worry and Money for Nothing rock chick.
Life is for living.

hmmm.. I did see I have a longevity gene on that fatal day when everything flashed before my eyes. I'm NOT going back to look. But its there. I saw it, it was the living to a 100 one.


We went thru such a bottleneck in the 1300's.Either crusaders or plague.http://www.haaretz.com/life/science-med ... m-1.614893
The math also indicates that today’s sprawling community of Ashkenazi Jews — there are more than 10 million around the world — derived from just 350 people or so. That previously postulated population bottleneck — a drastic reduction in population size — occurred between 25 to 32 generations ago, the scientists say.



I love the way this thread has rambled. Its true to life.

If you think this one rambles, you should read the ones on 23andme. I loved my rambling threads, but the organizationalistas had trouble wrapping their minds around a stroll thru life as it comes their way. A must be with A and B with B there can be no A times B creating an AB pile.

Money for nothing, ah I remember so well when I first heard the intro music, all my friends were wow, never heard anything like that before. Disappointing they did not do muçh more.

Stavia,

Wonderful that you got a chance to cut loose! (And with some of your patients there... what a riot. I experience something similar when I'm at a music event -- or, esp., when I actually am part of the event in the form of my (very modest and non-famous) band -- and I see students.)

I know, right? Those freaks at 23andMe who wanted to make information organized and more accessible to people trying to improve their health. What non-wrapable minds have they! Fie on them! Heck, they even went 'n started a whole separate website.
