Introduction

            It’s 2009. A baby is born in the United Kingdom without a heart and sure to die at the point of death. The baby’s parents are frantic. The parents are older, in their mid-40s, and they had been trying to conceive a child for the last fifteen years and this baby girl was their last chance for sure. They are a loving couple that has all of the financial resources to give to a child, plus their strong bond of love within their relationship.

            The chief doctor on staff at the hospital in London, England, suggests that they can receive a heart from the Philippines in order to save the child’s life.

            Moving over to the Philippines…the chief doctor has texted a head hunter in the Philippines who knows that his job is to find a healthy heart quickly. The head hunter goes to the closest exercise gym and waits for a young girl to come out who looks as though she has a healthy heart.

            The head hunter kills the Filipino girl, cuts out her heart, and it is then transported by illegal flight methods to London, England within that day in order to save the life of the baby girl in London, England.

            The chief doctor performs the surgery on the baby girl that night at midnight, moving into the second day of the baby girl’s life, and the baby girl is now ten years old today and healthy.

            The secret of how the girl lived without being born with a heart is simply concealed by the chief doctor that there was a donor, based on legal means, that helped to keep the baby girl alive, as well, the parents of the baby girl did not know anything in 2009 when their child was born, nor even today, nor will ever know, what, why, who, and how, or even when, and how legally grievous the situation that had occurred in order to keep their child alive.

            The legal violations of laws in the scenario above are with the Human Tissue Act 2004, the Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013, and the Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill. There will be a focus on India, Pakistan, and the Philippines as primary targets of human organ trafficking, as well as worldview encompassing Spain, Iran, and other areas of the Middle East as additional targets for human organ trafficking.

There will also be a discussion in this paper of the global seriousness of human organ transplant tourism, as well as human organ trafficking. The criminal element of human organ trafficking, as well as the laws in which it violates, will also be discussed.

Moral and legal issues associated with organ donation, human organ trafficking, as well as transplant tourism will also be discussed in this paper. There will also be the inclusion of a discussion on good way to solve or at least address the supply and the demand for human organ trafficking, as well as the cultural complications surrounding human organ trafficking.

Human Tissue Act 2004

            The Human Tissue Act of 2004clearly is delegated by parliament in the United Kingdom and applies to Wales, Northern Ireland, as well as England. The Human Tissue Authority for the United Kingdom helps to delegate the applicable laws and legal code of The Human Tissue Act.

            The Human Tissue Act of 2004 clearly outlines the legal rules and legal regulations of how to clean a dead body, handle human tissue of a corpse, as well as the proper and legal means of disposal of a corpse, as well as the human tissue that is involved with the dead body of humans. It is citation 30 of The Human Tissue Act of 2004 that is applicable to the complications that could be created with human organ trafficking, Human Tissue Act 2004 (c 30).

Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013

            This Act is applicable to the region of the United Kingdom of Wales. The Act was created and is administrated by the National Assembly of Wales.

A strong example of how The Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013law works is that when people first receive their driver’s licence in Wales, and they are making the decision of whether or not they would want to donate organs in the case of a motor vehicle accident to someone else in order to save their lives by legal means, rather than any other method such as human organ trafficking, any person in Wales can legally decide that they do not want to donate their organs in the case of a fatal motor vehicle accident and/or they can also decide to donate their organs in the case of a fatal motor vehicle accident.

The Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013 clearly states that the express wishes of anyone who opt-outs of donating their organs, as long as they are of sound mind and body and can legally make decisions for themselves, their wishes and their choices must be honoured or it would be a violation of the law that would be deemed legally punishable.

Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill

                Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill is now into its third reading towards administration within the United Kingdom parliament. The third reading of this legislation took place on Tuesday, February 26, 2019.

Further to The Human Tissue Act of 2004the Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill is legislation that focuses on the prevention of human organ trafficking within the United Kingdom by strongly creating legislation for the need for consent in terms of organ donation.

The following is a chart of some of the essentials of the three aspects of legislation by the United Kingdom parliament in order to prevent human organ trafficking:

Name of Legislation Locations within the United Kingdom legislation applies to Purpose of legislation
The Human Tissue Act of 2004 Wales, Northern Ireland, as well as England How to clean a dead body, handle human tissue of a corpse, as well as the proper and legal means of disposal of a corpse, as well as the human tissue that is involved with the dead body of humans.
The Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013 Wales The express wishes of anyone who opt-outs of donating their organs, as long as they are of sound mind and body and can legally make decisions for themselves, their wishes and their choices must be honoured. The Human Tissue Act of 2004.
Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill United Kingdom Prevention of human organ trafficking.  

Human Organ Trafficking in India

                The United Kingdom is making strong efforts to crack down on human organ trafficking, in particular since these regions of the world are huge international perpetrators of human organ trafficking. The United Kingdom is one of the top human organ trafficking violators in the entire world.

            Places such as Philippines which was mentioned in the introduction, as well as India which will be discussed now, are huge targets as places where victims that are suspecting, as well as healthy, are killed by head hunters in order to use their human organs to save the lives of people in such places as the United Kingdom.

            Healthy Indian people, that are also poor, are stalked by head hunters as soon as they receive their texts from healthcare white-collar criminal professionals in the United Kingdom and the moment the head hunter that simply lives in places such as India for the sole purposes of killing Indians for their human organs and receiving large sums of hundreds of thousands of dollars in order to do this illegal work, also work with the illegal transporters of small planes that send the chopped up body parts that are required, the organs, to the United Kingdom, and the operations are done by healthcare professionals in order to save the lives of people in the United Kingdom.

Human Organ Trafficking in Pakistan

                The same situation that takes place in India also occurs in Pakistan. There have been millions of “unsolved murders” of Pakistanis that are created and are caused by these head hunters that kill Pakistani people just for their human organs in order to save the lives of people in the United Kingdom, leaving the police force in Pakistan at all levels of government, from the provinces, to the federal level, to the local levels searching to find out who have killed their people, yet, many of the police officials in Pakistan, do know that there are hidden head hunters that are the murderers of their people for the crime of human organ trafficking.

Human Organ Trafficking in Spain

            Unfortunately, the same human organ trafficking also occurs in Spain.

            In places such as Spain, many times the head hunters, the murderers, the killers, will be Spanish people themselves, who will lure a young girl, sometimes they are even as young as thirteen years old, fourteen years old, fifteen years old, who are in admiration of a truly older man who happens to look much younger for his age and lies to the little girl and tells her that he is under the age of eighteen years old.

            The young man, who is actually under the age of thirty years old and wants to have lots of money, be a millionaire in Europe and does not care how he receives the money to do this, rapes and kills the little girl, many little girls actually, the young man is actually a serial killer, and then chops up the body parts, and sends them to the United Kingdom.

Human Organ Trafficking in Iran

                In Iran, also known as Persia, the same human organ trafficking also takes place. The differences from the human organ trafficking in places such as Iran, in comparison to other places such as the Philippines, India, Pakistan, and Spain which have been previously mentioned, is because of the Islamic culture in Iran, the primary target for the head hunters who kill Persians for the sake of their human organs, are the men due to the cultural sacredness of the female body in Islamic culture.

            There are many occurrences within Iran, where the killers of the Persian men, are gay men, and they will also rape the victims, and chop up their body parts for the sake of human organ trafficking, and wrap, seal, and send the body parts to the United Kingdom, as they the

Global Human Organ Trafficking

            On the global human organ trafficking scale, countries within Africa, China, Singapore, Thailand, Russia, Serbia, Croatia, Turkey, and a number of other countries have lost millions of people over the past decade, including those countries previously mentioned such as the Philippines, India, Pakistan, Spain, and Iran, to head hunters that will many times rape and kill, steal the belongings of people that did not have anything to begin with in terms of monetary gain, chop up their body parts on the dead corpse that they created, and package the human organs to send them to the United Kingdom in order to save the lives of people in life-and-death situations who are living in the United Kingdom who need human organs that they cannot receive by legal methods.

The Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill, the latter which is in its third reading, is vital legislation to apply legal the laws that are created within the United Kingdom such as The Human Tissue Act 2004, The Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013, and the Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) punishment to the participants of the human organ trafficking trade that occurs globally and also affects the United Kingdom as illegal human organs are created by murder, plus transported into the United Kingdom also by illegal means.

Transplant Tourism and Human Organ Trafficking

                Transplant tourism and human organ trafficking occurs when people from the United Kingdom, which is the focus of this paper, however, places such as the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and other First World countries with wealth around the world, go to places such as Serbia, Croatia, Russia, China, countries in Africa, Spain, South America, Pakistan, India, Iran, as well as the Philippines, and many other so-called Third World countries in order to target poor people, people without money, to have head hunters murder them for their human organs and to conduct their secret surgeries within the Third World countries, with First World doctors who are focused on this transplant tourism and human organ trafficking market, so that the First World people, people from the United Kingdom as the example for this purposes of this paper, can cure diseases, as well as save their lives essentially.

Criminal Element of Human Organ Trafficking

                The criminal element of human organ trafficking is catastrophic. Not only is human organ trafficking an international human rights violations issue on a large scale, a violation of the rights of poor people to live free from murder and their bodies not be deemed as available human organs for the rich of the First World, within the United Kingdom the laws in which are violated are The Human Tissue Act 2004 (c 30), The Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013, and The Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill, which are the laws that are specifically applicable to human organ trafficking within the United Kingdom.

How to Solve the Situation of Human Organ Trafficking

            Unfortunately, the developments in medical care in order to prolong the lives of human beings, of course, is a remarkable thing, however, when it pertains to the issue of human organ trafficking, it is a disastrous violation of United Kingdom legislation.

            The solution truly is to create an international law enforcement body that not only focuses on human organ trafficking, but also on human trafficking in general because even those people, including men in the world, that are bought and sold into sexual slavery are also often killed once their uses for the purposes of illegal and impermissible sexual relations with the purchasers of human bodies for these purposes are killed for the uses of their human organs once their bodies can no longer be used for sex slavery purposes. Human trafficking, in general, is linked to human organ trafficking and there needs to be a dedicated international police force that is committed to eradicating this grievous crime which is clear violations of the laws set out by the United Kingdom in order to prevent human organ trafficking.

There also need to be harsher punishments for those head hunters and pilots of the planes, plus medical white-collar crime professionals that participate in transplant tourism, as well as human organ trafficking.

Conclusion

            The family of the dead Filipino girl that died in 2009 so that a baby could live that was born without a heart in the United Kingdom has not ever recovered from what to them, is the mysterious murder of their daughter, their sister, their cousin, their niece, their grandchild, their family, their classmate.

            The little Filipino girl was a great student in school and wanted to grow up to become a medical doctor. Little did she know, it was in the name of medicine, that she was murdered?

            The little Filipino girl died more because she was innocent, in a dangerous place at a dangerous time, poor and could not defend herself, and did not know the ways of wicked people of the world that would kill her for doing no wrong, other than having a healthy body where her organs could help to prolong the life of someone within the United Kingdom.

            Include hundreds of other countries in the world, that are considered to be the Third World, and again, the same thing that happened to this little Filipino girl, would happen not only to little girls, but also to young men, and to anyone that is deemed healthy enough to be killed by head hunters in order to illegally transport their human organs to First World countries such as the United Kingdom.

How to Make Your Mall Experience a Free One

Being in a shopping mall can be an overwhelming experience – especially when you don’t have cash to spend. But, there are ways to have a good time without spending a cent.

Before you go shopping, you want to make sure you look good. Visit a makeup counter and get a free makeover and look gorgeous while you walk through the mall. It’s also a great form of exercise. Continue reading

Self-Publishing


Interesting Masters Degrees - January 22,2010

Self-publishing is a passion of mine. The journalist in me loves the immediacy of it. The fact that you can finish a piece of work and have it published and ready for sale in a matter of a day. The photo archives online make it possible to come up with inexpensive cover designs and voila…you have your book ready for the world.

Now I have published 34 books. I have obviously taken full advantage of the ease of publishing online. The fact that I have connections in the United States has made it easy for me to also have my books on Amazon Kindle. E-books are really where the future is at, however, there is nothing quite like cracking open a finished book and having it in your hand to read.

For this year, I plan on doing some re-formatting of my past books. I have noticed that some of the books do not contain page numbers and headers which was truly an oversight at the time on my part. Look out for some tweaking and improvement in that area. As well, once I am done that project, I want to create some new stories. I would love to work on other people’s stories with them, as well as create some new ones of my own.

If page numbers and headers do not bother you and you would be interested in buying one of my books as is, you can access them from my online store at http://stores.lulu.com/kakonged. As well, if you live in the general Toronto area, I would be willing to meet with you to sell to you extra copies of some of the books that I have such as My Roxanne which has been one of my bestsellers.  If you are interested in this, you should truly contact me soon, because I do not have many books in supply. I give a special discount for books bought through me, as well you would not need to worry about shipping. Encouragement to those in the States though – shipping costs are actually very good in the U.S. with Lulu.com.

Here’s wishing you a Happy and Safe New Year, plus a prosperous one too.

Goji Juice And Chemotherapy Posted By : D Fraser


Most times when your family doctor prescribes a new medication for you, you can get ready to read the long list of side effects the drug may cause to alleviate the symptoms of something else. Common side effects that you’ll read about, or even see in TV commercials these days for new drugs are cramps, nausea, and diarrhea. It’s rare that we come across a form of prescribed medication that doesn’t have some negative side effects.

Goji Juice is one way to maintain optimal health without negative side effects.

Himalayan Tibetan Goji Juice, The Best Kept Anti-aging Secret Of Our Time Posted By on the Internet: Willie Jones


Tibetan Goji Juice is finally gaining in popularity and it is about time. Thanks to the clinical trials being done in China, Japan, Mongolia, and Switzerland, we are getting the much-needed information (that the ancients knew) on this wonderful berry. The most famous story in regards to Goji Juice (also known as Lycium Barbarum) and its benefits come from China where according to their records, Li Chung Yun, a renowned Chinese scholar, and herbalist, was born in 1677.

Lifestyle characteristics that promote longevity


* Regularly partakes in enjoyable exercise

* Enjoyable career and tolerates ‘healthy’ stress

* Generally happy relationships with spouse and children

* Active member of the community, enjoying many friendships

* Seeks to learn new things and enjoys personal development

* Eats a balanced, healthy diet

* Supplements diet with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants

* Has a sense of worth and purpose in life

If your life reflects these characteristics then you have adopted the attributes which significantly slow down the aging process and increase your chances of living to a ripe old age with good health.

If this list is more like you then you may be aging fast. It’s time to take action and make some changes if you want to improve the quality of your later years. It may be a daunting task to make lifestyle changes, however, by taking things one step at a time and being consistent in developing new lifestyle habits – you will notice the difference in time, and your body, friends, and family will thank you.

What determines your biological ‘age’?


Our parents precondition us from a young age to believe that we’ll live to a certain age. We walk around with a particular notion in our subconscious that we have a predefined lifespan of between 60 to 90 years. But there is no definitive speed at which a person should gracefully age because we are all so different. Some people seem to look and act eternally young – ageless, wrinkle less. Others, less fortunate, look old beyond their years. Our body’s biological age is a reflection of our physical, mental and spiritual journey through life. In perfect conditions, our bodies can survive to an age of 125 years. Look at the two very different lists below, the potential for aging becomes quite obvious when you compare such a stark difference in lifestyle.

The first person has all the attributes to significantly slow down the aging process and live to a ripe old age with good health.

Determining Your Biological Age


Science has made stunning discoveries in this area of human interest, it’s something we all want to know – can we slow down the process of aging, can we live longer, if so, how? It’s a highly technical subject, too detailed to look at in-depth within this e-book. But, I can give you some powerful pointers to help slow down the aging process and increase your chances of a healthier old age.

Belief #4. I cultivate a positive vocabulary


Do you ever make remarks like, “She gives me a pain in the neck.” “He broke my heart.” or “I can’t stomach it.” Your mind is very suggestible. Your mind tries to maintain consistency between your beliefs and behaviors (cognitive dissonance theory). Don’t risk your mind taking these remarks literally. If you find yourself using any negative body metaphors, get rid of them.

The second aspect of a positive vocabulary is having a favorite upbeat, fun word or words. Make it your trademark and use it with great enthusiasm. My favorite is Wow! I love that word. Motivational speaker Zig Zigler made a trademark of fa-n-tas-tic. What’s your favorite word?

Brickey was at a wedding and the bride had difficulty getting the ring on the groom’s hand. “Oh shit,” popped out of her mouth and was picked up by the microphone for everyone to hear. That’s hardly the memory she hoped people would take home. Every few years a news or sports commentator lets an expletive slip. It causes great embarrassment and sometimes costs them their jobs. Those words have a way of slipping out at the worst time. It’s also very lazy thinking. Instead of getting in touch with the nuances of your feelings, it just reaches for the anger. If you have a potty mouth, get the soap.

Defy Aging discusses these beliefs in more depth along with 32 other beliefs and strategies for changing beliefs.

Toolbox for an Ageless Body – Radiate Health


It takes the discipline of an ageless woman to love herself so much that she will care about her inner health and physical appearance – beauty from the inside out.

Caring for her body the holistic way – without medications means choosing a holistic, raw diet, vegetarian, low meat – balanced diet, organic meals, salads, veggies, vegetable proteins, etc. Very little organic white meat such as chicken, wild salmon, fish without the mercury should be consumed.

Staying fit is also important. Doing some exercise daily, may it be yoga, Pilates, walking, running, Aqua fitness, gym, sports and anything you find enjoyable and that will also keep you safe.

The audience of the Oprah Show took Dr. Michael Brickey’s “Defy Aging Quiz.” The past seven presidents of the American Psychological Association have endorsed Brickey’s quiz. The reason is that with feeling younger:

You can put more
snap in your step
sparkle in your eyes
an animation in your face
confidence in your posture
exude a positive outlook.

So is it just a matter of positive thinking? Hardly. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. If you neglect the weak link it breaks. Thus you need to eat reasonably well. You need to keep yourself physically fit, including strength, cardiovascular, and flexibility. If you have any health problems, it is essential to address them with whatever it takes to lessen the problem. Once you have this basic foundation, mental factors become paramount.

Defy Aging has the research, theory, and how to for living well into your hundreds. It also shows you step-by-step how to develop a written plan for your life. Because so many people don’t read thick books, Brickey distilled the concepts in 52 baby steps to Grow Young. It gives two-page-a-week steps for being youthful every age. Or you can bypass your conscious mind and effortlessly absorb the concepts with his six hypnosis CDs, Reverse Aging: Hypnotic Journeys to Ageless Lifestyles. If you are serious about looking, feeling, and being as youthful as possible, you need all three so you understand the principles, put them into practice each week, and address both your conscious and unconscious mind. Defy Aging is also available on cassette tapes so you can learn while you drive or while you do the dishes.

You will also be getting a booster shot every two weeks from the Defy Aging Newsletter. You have a choice—to just go along with conventional thinking or to defy aging and live a long vital life. As Robert Frost put it:

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood. . . .
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

The benefit is feeling younger and having a more youthful outlook. That shows in your face and your whole demeanor. When that happens people even treat you better. Plus, you live longer, healthier, and happier. And all it takes is learning your Anti-Aging ABCs™.

C is for Coping Skills


There are four key coping skills:
1. Continually renewing your sense of purpose
2. Having a serenity about the deaths of friends and family
3. Embracing lifelong learning and change
4. Developing and sustaining a rewarding marriage or dealing effectively with intimate relations beginning and ending

Consider one aspect of dealing with loved ones dying. If you are going to live well into your hundreds, a lot of people you love will die. If you have difficulty dealing with the losses, you become vulnerable to depression and health problems. Defy Aging has a whole chapter on strategies for dealing with death. Space only permits discussing Brickey’s personal favorite—what he calls the Fred Sanford strategy.

Remember the TV program, Sanford, and Sons? What would Fred do when he was having a tough time? He would hold one hand over his heart and have the other hand in the air and say, “Elizabeth, I’m coming, this is the big one (a heart attack).” Then he would carry on an imaginary conversation with her and receive love, comfort, support, understanding, and guidance. He knew her so well he knew what she would say. (He probably got along with her better after she died because he was a pretty cantankerous guy.)

Fred was a simple, uneducated person. If he can do it, you can do it. Seeing a deceased love one as an ongoing presence in your life is a very powerful way of dealing with the death.

There is a bonus benefit that comes with the strategy. In doing 30 some years of therapy with clients Brickey has often heard clients lament, “I wasn’t there when he died.” “He died when I left the room.” or “I never told him I loved him.” It was like there was a brief window of opportunity and it is gone forever. If he or she is an ongoing presence in your life, however, you have unlimited opportunities for unfinished business.

Belief #3. My mind gets richer and better with age


In the 1950’s researchers reported that you lose 100,000 brain cells a day and that senility is inevitable if you live to 100. Your brain has about a trillion neurons. Even if the 100,000 neurons a day were true, at 150 you would still have 99 per cent of your brain’s neurons. More precise research methodology and the use of computers, however, have discredited the dying cell research and yielded a more optimistic picture of aging. Recent research finds that you can grow new brain cells at any age.

Brickey often hear people make remarks such as, “My mind isn’t what it used to be.” It sounds harmless, but if you make remarks like that often enough you will come to believe them. Your mind is like a muscle. Use it and it grows strong. If idle, it withers. Research with nuns at a convent found that while they all had the same routine, ate the same food, etc., the nuns who were better educated or who continued learning were less likely to develop Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Consider an analogy with computers. As you age your hard drives acquire a richer and richer data set. You also acquire a richer and richer collection of programs (software). Last year Brickey taught his teenage son how to drive. He thought it would be a snap with all the computer games he plays. It wasn’t. He said he couldn’t believe how complicated it was to watch the road in front and behind, the instrument panel, the signs, etc. Brickey suspects that when you drive, you are so bored you are also listening to radio, or talking with someone, or talking on your cell phone, or putting on makeup. Because you have a well-developed program for driving, you only need a small portion of your short-term memory to monitor what is happening. Programs are why a sixty-year-old experienced bridge player can run circles around someone who has only been playing for a few years. Her unconscious mind’s program catches the patterns.

It is true that as you age, your processing speed (megahertz) becomes a little slower. Would you really want to trade that richer hard drive and rich array of programs for the anemic hard drive and programs of a teenager just to get a faster processing speed? Not a good trade.

If you are inclined to make a remark like “I just can’t remember things very well anymore,” be kind to yourself and remember that you have much larger, richer data files to search than a younger person has. So it may take a little longer. You know a lot more Smiths and Jones and you have seen a lot more faces.

One of my pet peeves is “senior moments.” It says you are brain damaged so you aren’t even going to try to remember. Rather, ask yourself, am I stressed? tired? sleep deprived? taking medication? had a few drinks? Any of these keep your memory from being sharp. Tell yourself, “It will come to me.” That’s telling your unconscious mind to keep searching while you go on to other things. Often five minutes later the name comes to you. Sometimes a chance association will trigger the memory. Keep yourself in the game by trusting your memory.

Belief #2. I cultivate fond memories and let the bad ones wither (or better yet see the humor in them)


People tend to assume their memories just happen. Some default program just creates them. Actually, you create your memories every time you think of them. You pull up some information and construct the picture and words. If you rehearse the memory often enough, the memory will get burned in. With post traumatic stress disorder the events are so traumatic the memory gets burned in. Otherwise, you are the artist.

Belle Boone Beard’s research with centenarians found that they related twice as many positive memories as negative memories. It wasn’t that they had an easy life. They lived through the Great Depression, two World Wars, and most of the time did not have much money. She found that even when their lives had a lot of tragedy, they often focused on the positive, such as how kind people were to them. She observed, “In general centenarians can recall so many more pleasant memories that I wonder whether they may deliberately have repressed unhappy memories.”

Cultivating memories is like gardening. You need to nourish the good memories by telling the stories again and again with great enthusiasm and vivid details. Eventually, you will get so good at telling the stories that people will ask to hear them again and again.

You can choose to minimize and weed out the bad memories. People say “someday you’ll laugh about this.” Why wait? Most humor is based on painful events. Seeing the humor can take the sting out. Keeping the pain to yourself allows it to fester. When you share it with someone, it is much easier to get perspective and to see the humor. And humor makes for great stories.

B is for Beliefs


In modeling vital centenarians and studying the best psychology research, Brickey came up with 36 beliefs that foster living longer, healthier and happier. Hopefully, Brickey will discover even more. Let’s consider four of the 40 beliefs:

Belief: #1. I am many ages.

A librarian told him that she happened to mention to her staff that she was over 50. Suddenly they started treating her differently. “Brittney Spears, oh I’m sorry, you wouldn’t know who she is would you?” They started leaving her off committees. She was young at heart. They had arteriosclerosis of the attitudes.

When you tell someone your age, they pull out their stereotypes for that age and expect you to “Act your age.” Worse yet those stereotypes are based on how your parents’ and grandparents’ generations aged. So what should you say?

I think the best answer came from comedian Bob Hope. He describes himself as “many ages.” There are times when you want to get down on the floor and play with little kids like you are a little kid yourself. There are times when you want to have a teenage rhythm to relate well to teens or just to have fun. And there are times when you want to draw upon your years of experience for sagely wisdom. The trick is time traveling to whatever the occasion calls for. The beauty is that the older you get, the richer your repertoire becomes.

There is an interesting bonus benefit. When you meet new people you often get routine questions such as “What do you do for a living?” Often they get to the end of their list, don’t know what more to say, and move on. Tell someone you are many ages and you not only avoid being stereotyped, you get an interesting conversation that goes deeper than the usual questions and answers.

A is for Attitudes


Brickey studied vital centenarians, people 100+ years old who dance, sculpt, do well in sports, conduct symphony orchestras, run for Congress, write best sellers, do math in their heads, and even fly airplanes. They had little in common physically. They almost all shared four attitudes: optimism, gratitude, dealing with it, and embracing lifelong learning and change. You might call these the ‘BeAttitudes.’ Let’s consider optimism.

Imagine a football coach getting the team ready for a game. The coach tells the team the opponent outweighs them and is a 15 point favorite. His chances of winning are slim–but let’s play ball. Being brutally objective makes for good science but is not the most effective way to play sports or to live your life. There is a wealth of research that indicates optimists live longer, healthier, happier lives. For example:

● When West Point studied why nearly 10 per cent of their 1,200 member freshman classes dropped out within the first month, they found most of the drop outs were pessimists.
● Pennsylvania State University freshmen who were optimists were more likely to have better first semester grades than their high school grades and SAT aptitude tests suggested. Pessimistic freshmen were more likely to have lower grades than expected and more likely to drop-out.
● When Metropolitan Life Insurance Company included optimism in their selection process for life insurance agents; the agents they chose sold more insurance and stayed with the company longer.
● A long-term study of male Harvard graduates found most were in reasonably good health until age 45 when the men who were pessimistic at 25 began having significantly more health problems than the men who were optimistic at 25. The difference became even more pronounced at 60. While the Harvard research looked at many factors, optimism was the strongest predictor of health after 45.
● Athletes and teams that made optimistic statements to the press were more likely to increase their winning percentage and or beat the point spreads.
● Politicians who were more optimistic than their opponents were more likely to win elections.
● Optimists who developed cancer or had heart attacks had better survival rates than patients who are not optimistic.

Many people think of optimism in terms of positive thinking and affirmations, e.g., Emile Coue’s “Every day in every way I’m getting better and better.” or thinking of a glass as half full rather than half empty. Brickey finds these global approaches do not work for most people.

The seminal researcher in optimism, Martin Seligman, described optimism as how you think about the causes of good things and bad things that happen to us, your “explanatory style.” Optimists bias their interpretations of events in a way that protects their egos and gives them hope to keep on trying. Pessimists have a neutral posture or a negative bias.

Benefits of Staying Young and Healthy


Edited by Donna Kakonge

You have many more years of feeling great in your body. This will allow you to have more energy to do what you love and to pursue your dreams.

You can learn all the time by taking one of my courses and discover new things, new people, new foods, new countries and anything else your heart desires.

Learning the habits, lifestyles, cultures, foods, and dances of a multicultural world will help you to stay young. Contributing your gifts and talents to the community and to the world will help you to leave a legacy on this planet and to enjoy your retirement.

Releasing old beliefs, personal growth and learning new attitudes will help you to get the best out of the next 30 years of your life. This will be discussed later in the e-book.

Of course, keeping fit, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually are also important and will be discussed later in this e-book.

Living your true purpose and becoming the person you are is another topic covered in this e-book.

Living fully in this life, loving immensely, fulfilling all aspects of your life responsibly will allow you to do all that you want so you don’t have to come back to fulfill the dreams left behind.

Let’s begin on this journey…

Michael Brickey, Ph.D., writes about the three most important secrets to youthful life and a young mind. He’s America’s Anti-Aging Psychologist.

He says the challenge is focusing on the end in mind and how you would like to be now tomorrow and when you’re 100. The desire for you is to be mentally sharp, physically fit and passionate.

“If you want it, you need to believe it, desire it, and attract it,” Brickey says.

You are not alone in your desire to slow the aging process. A U.S. Census Bureau states Baby Boomers hate to age. In 2000, the U.S. had 72,000 centenarians, people 100 years and older. The Census Bureau predicts 1.2 million centenarians in 2050 and 1.87 million centenarians in 2060 (when just the first four years of Baby Boomers have turned 100). That’s enough people for a good sized city.

Brickey says the Census Bureau is underestimating the number of centenarians the U.S. will have. Some will still be healthy. Some will be in wheelchairs and nursing homes. Barring any accidents, being healthy and happy in your retirement years is largely up to you.

“Research shows that as people get older, they become happier,” says Brickey. “In their twenties, only 28 per cent of Americans said they were happy. The percentage keeps going up with age. In their seventies, 38 per cent of Americans say they are happy. While many romanticize their younger years, for most of us our teens and twenties were a time of great insecurity and anxiety. As they get older, most people become clearer about who they are, what they want, and how to achieve it.”

Many of you may be looking for ways to stay young in the wrong places. You may be watching MTV, playing video games, drinking with your buddies from high school or college or indulging in plastic surgery.

Michael Brickey has three secrets to really fight aging he calls your Anti-Aging ABCs™. They’re based on Attitudes, Beliefs and Coping Skills.

“The good news is the ABCs are all skills you can learn–many very quickly and easily,” Brickey says.
