A Global Study of the Effects of Activating Longevity Gene Signaling on Aging
LivingTheCRWay.com introduces CR Way™ DNA HACR, designed to analyze the effects of many aspects of aging interventions.
A global longitudinal study, open to all who want to live better longer, CR Way DNA HACR is planned to run in perpetuity. Participants will gain unique insights into how well their aging interventions work and what can be done to improve them.
Years of scientific studies led to a new and very important page on LivingTheCRWay: Tests for Optimal Health and Longevity. Here, full members can find suggestions for tests they can do at home, as part of their annual physical, and special testing opportunities they may take advantage of.
Diet & Lifestyle Tracking: Meal logs, glucose levels, exercise (type, calories burned, & intensity), mood, kidney/urinary profile, cardiovascular – VAP (Vertical Auto Profile: lipid analysis, incl. subparticles), intima media thickness.
Annual Physical: Reference ranges from decade+ of human calorie restriction research.
Personal Genome Analysis.
Microbiome Assessments: Gut & others
DNA Stability: Annual assessment: rate of increase of short telomeres.
mRNA, mi-RNA, DNA Methylation.
Cellular Senescence: Annual p16ink4a assessment.
Eye/Brain Health & Alzheimer’s/dementia risk: Annual measures: retinal blood vessel changes, cognitive function.
Collaborators: Buck Institute for Research on Aging, Life Length Company, Mount Kisco Medical Group (NY), Mount Sinai Medical Center, Univ. of Colorado – Boulder, Univ. of California – Riverside
Value in numbers!
Much larger and longer than other studies of this type, CR Way™ DNA HACR will provide participants with a uniquely valuable opportunity to gauge their age-slowing success by comparing their results to those of others. We expect the study to respond to questions about the effects on aging of diet and other lifestyle aspects – questions that hitherto have been answered largely by guesswork.
Identities of all participants and their results will be strictly confidential. The study will be blinded so that researchers and analysts will not know what data belong to which participants.
CR Way™ DNA HACR, a citizen science project, is funded in part by its participants who pay for their own testing. Most participants can expect their health insurance to cover some of their testing costs.
Administrative costs of the project will be funded through memberships of LivingTheCRWay.com, and donations.
