The simple way towards a long and happy life (Part 6 of 7)

If the theories of waste-accumulation and cellular exhaustion are true, we need to revise our mental representation of what it means to live, eat, and work. Sickness and death take a different significance when they are seen as part of a natural process which we might be able to influence to a larger extent than it is currently assumed.

The new paradigm would reshape our vision of life into a sequence of events in which we play a much more significant role:

1. You are born into a certain family and social environment, which do not always know what is really good for you.

2. You will be much better off if you live, eat, and work using reason as a standard, irrespective of what other people think of you.

3. You should learn how to live in a way that slows down the accumulation of biochemical waste in your organism, since your own behaviour is the number-one factor that contributes to keeping you healthy.
